So the money payment of ED look very good but depending on how one value the rest of it.. ED may come out ahead or behind a regular transaction.
Those are all good points. My 1st class ticket is paid for by points, and hotels are paid via priceline, some savings there. However, I'm not doing ED from the savings aspect. The experience is awesome, and this will be my 2nd ED. And I think if you go checkout the ED forum, you'll see most people talk about the experience rather than the savings.
