I am excited to announce a new feature: the milevalue.com Mile Value Leaderboard. Find it at the top of the page. On it, I’ll keep track of my latest valuations for every major frequent flier, credit card, and hotel loyalty currency. So far, it just has three entries: Avios, Rapid Rewards, and Membership Rewards. Avios and Rapid Rewards were dissected in the last week.
Full Membership Rewards analysis is coming soon. But I’ve added it to the list because right now there is a 50% transfer bonus if you transfer Membership Rewards points to Avios. Since I value Avios at 1.70 cents per point, and I can get 1.5 Avios for each MR point, MR points are worth at least 2.55 cents per point at the moment. That’s the figure I’ve put on the Leaderboard. What currency do you expect to top the Leaderboard, which do you want to see analyzed and added next? Put it in the comments.
