I’ve made a point of never using credit card points/rewards for necessities, only ever for fun & frivolous. If I need the rewards to cover any type of daily expense, then I need to re-examine my budget and spending habits. There is no opportunity cost here. 8)
That's an excellent philosophy, which completely dissolves my point, so your man-maths = real maths. Congratulations, you've passed the spousal interrogation mock exam. :thumbup: :)

And for that $125 remainder, you get more points, right? How many Sealander purchases will it take to earn enough points for another C63? :p

Can someone refresh my memory on what the typical minimum amount is to use the voucher, in both GBP and USD?

Spend £xxx/get £100 off…
Spend $xxx/get $125 off…

Gotta work the numbers!

Firstly this all makes total sense to me, no brainer. :D
If it helps I bought my C63 Sealander using the voucher last autumn so I am sure it will qualify for the voucher.

USD is $125 off of anything $625 or greater.
