While there are all kinds of offers for a negligible number of points in exchange for signing up for something, they’re rarely worth it, in my opinion. The points take 6-8 weeks to post, and that’s assuming they post, which is rarely the case in my experience. Just yesterday I followed Priority Club’s link to join points.com, and the whole process took about a minute. The 200 points promised for signing up posted the same day. Who knows, it might even count as a partner activity for the current promotion, which would earn you at least 1,000 more points (although I made a swap through points.com just to be on the safe side).
By the way, this probably isn’t new, but I’m not always on top of things….
