Must be using the Chase Sapphire Reserve card.

I see the same exact deal. Added to cart and subtotal is exactly the same plus taxes (which you can also use points to pay)-....... "'For each point you redeem for Apple merchandise in the Apple® Ultimate Rewards® Store from 10/11/2019 - 11/15/2019 is worth $0.012, which means that 100 points equals $1.20 in redemption value."

Not that great of a deal. the points are way better spent and redeemed on travel. Check out the travel rewards subreddit for additional info to maximize the value. travel redemption with reserve is minimum 1.5x and with transferring points to different carriers the value only increases. But if you absolutely need to buy them I guess there are worse ways to redeem your points.

In some case 20k points are worth way more than $207. One example is transferring to southwest and redeeming for air travel and those points will net you anywhere between 300-350 depending where you travel and buy tickets during southwest sales or transfer points to Hyatt hotel and get at least 2 night in category 3 hotel which is much more than $200.

Could you PM me to the link of this subreddit?

TIA

I highly advise Do NOT buy any apple products from chase ultimate rewards.
Their return policy is zero days. Unless you have a defective / damaged product they will NOT let you return.

Yeah as was mentioned this is a poor deal, over MSRP. The CSP gives you a 1.25x bonus on travel arrangements made through their site, and CSR is 1.5. That alone makes the CPP higher than this deal with the 20% bonus.

And that's just the base redemption and even then most skip it as you can do better on partner transfers by a mile. Easily 2CPP+.

If you never travel or even stay at a hotel to get away for a night or two, I guess it's fine, but the AF on a CSR is basically eating up your savings here if you just throw away the points.

Bad deal for anyone with these cards. Better off buying one of the AirPod Pro deals for $235 using a CFU, get the 1.5% in points, transfer them to a CSR, and now they are worth 2.25x! Just a dozen better way to use points.

$235 airpods
think Amazon Prime card/other 5% monthly/quarterly cash back = $11.75 cash would be better, at least in tax free states
CFU to CSP/CSR would only be a few points right?
