I'm new. I intend to use points for hotel stays. I received e-mail offer to buy points with a 50% bonus. Looking at random locations at different times of the year, the cash price, in almost every instance, would be less expensive than buying points to use for the stay, and that's with the 50% bonus. Without the bonus points, it would be much less expensive to just pay cash. Is this typical about what to expect for buying points? Is there any real value to buying points?

Another question related to buying points:
I just booked Bora Bora with my points but didn't realize it could also be a way for me to buy points with cash and points. So it looks like my booking was for the last set of rewards night at the IC Thelasso Spa for my dates. If I were to cancel the reservation to effectively buy those points, can I rebook that same room immediately or could there be a chance that they remove that room from being a rewards night room? Not sure if I should take my chances but I effectively now have less than 1,000 points remaining and can't buy points through the cash and points option anymore! Any advice is appreciated. Thank you!
