Here’s a promotion from my credit card rewards program, Priority Club.

Now, 10,000 points gets you a room in a Holiday Inn or some-such hotel. Since a room costs about $90, then the law of transitivity means 10,000 points equals $90.

That said, what idiot is going to spend 19,000 points (i.e., about $185) on that clock radio? And how many people are spending $160 for that George Forman grill?

It boggles the mind.
