While I suppose the 1.67¢ per point technically is correct, there is an opportunity cost valuing it like that. I wouldn’t value ty points intrinsically like that. The discount is available no matter what currency you use. I personally would prefer a statement credit from arrival+ or venture for using the 4th night free. I realize that is not an option for everyone. I guess if you are finding it difficult to use ty points this makes sense for some.

Time to go blow those global entry / pre check credits! I bet the lines are about to get a tad longer.

Unfortunately, the TYP example is only 1.25 cpp.

The 4th night is free whether it is a cash or points booking. Ergo, using points doesn’t have any affect on cpp. It would only increase cpp if you only got the 4th night free using points.

Completely agree. His math makes no sense. Its based on the full value of 4 nights. You are only paying for three nights whether its cash or points. I rather charge it and earn the 3x points. On top of that Citi pays 3x points on travel and only charge you 1x point on 4th free night credit!
