I'm doing roomette trip in April, Crescent NOL to DC, Capitol Limited DC to CHI, and California Zephyr CHI to EMY for 26,000 points. I consider that a good deal. In a roundabout way I am traveling across at least three old zone boundaries.
Using lowest bucket prices for April, I came up with 36,984 points for that trip as a senior, in roomettes. How did you do that ?
As a senior? Seniors get no special deal when using points. Point price is based on adult fare.
I am a senior. I didn't write that seniors got a special deal on points. Do you agree ?
No. Stating "for that trip as a senior" strongly implies, if not outright says "I got that because I am a senior". Being a senior had nothing to do with the points cost and I wanted to make sure you and, most importantly, anyone else reading your comment who didn't know, that seniors not only get no points break but get lesser value for their points because they pay the same points fare but a lower cash fare for their trip.
