I booked October travel during a promo (I guess) from Dallas once the Wright Amendment is defunct. Non-stop and it was 11460 points with 5.00 $ for the boys in security. I looked just now to clarify when I arrive as my countdown timer is off as to hour of arrival and now it is 30605 points with a hefty 11.20 $ for the peace of mind provided by TSA. Now yes, my points are tied up from May to October but this seems a bit harsh (3x the original offering). I feel good already.
