Yes, it's included in 2017 total profits. For 2018, so far I've made $700 from Suntrust checking deals( $500 personal and $200 business).

It didn't cost me anything but 5 minutes of my time to open a savings and checking account to meet the spend requirement. I don't called that a fail.

not necessary, I don't do travel so the next option is cash. It's all depending on your priorities.

You're free to reason any way you like and do whatever you wish with your points, but for those not too familiar with the card / TY pts I am just saying that converting 50k TY points to ~$575-$625 is pretty trivial and if you travel you can get even more value out of them.

Not everyone looks at retail price of a hotel when determining value of points. Sure, a $800/night hotel room for 50,000 points is cool. That's 1.6c/pt. But unless you were actually going to spend $800 for a hotel using actual money, you're not exactly saving $800. But with $452 cash, you can stay in a $150 hotel room in the same city and pocket another $300 cash, I've gotten the same essential utility (one night of free sleep) but I also have $300 cash.

Maximizing redemption value doesn't necessarily equate to maximizing overall value.

Well, you use the word "fail" implying the folks redeem points for cash are stupid. Not everyone like to travel or stay in a hotel.....

Where did you see me say anything about retail price? Okay, instead of giving you imaginary examples here's a real life one. Last July I went from NY->Brussels->Moscow->Brussels (10 day stop) ->NY for ~30k TY pts. Half of the flights, including transatlantic, were in business as econ was not available for my dates. Even ignoring business class seats, which I would not have booked if I had to pay cash, all similar itineraries priced ~$1k. That's IMO is a good redemption, and 50k TY pts -> $452 is not. You guys are free to burn your points any way you want, bad redemptions give Citi less incentive to introduce negative changes to the program.

I see people letting others use their TY pts at rates higher than 1:1. Redeeming for cash is not stupid if that's what you feel like doing, but redeeming 50k TY pts for $452 is (IMO).

Great bonus but this card is worthless in long run. I have this card since 2015 and I will cancel it before the annual fee charges.

I guess I'll keep disagreeing with everyone in this thread LMAO

Also member since 2015, not eligible for CSR due to lol/24. 3x pts travel, decent benefits, point transfer eligibility and MC World Elite status make this card a keeper for me. Citi has also been pretty good about providing offers to offset the annual fee.
