It seems we got a bit of more time to enjoy category 7 for luxury redemptions:
Ha, you beat me to it - I get those emails too, always an interesting wake-up read! And a nice extension to the opportunity to nab a top class stay for 60,000 points. An easy bargain!
Good to see you back fistuk, I noticed on Twitter that you visited the Maldives, was it one of these Cat 7 redemptions?
Yes, it was indeed!
I'm still here actually and will soon post a review.
Oh, gosh, well done! Congratulations on being able to take that. Really do enjoy and post a review with plenty of piccies when you get back.
Yes, plenty-o-pics for those of us who can’t read!
Thanks for posting,!!!! This is great.

Yup, I posted the news earlier this month: Points redemption increase
You indicated the deadline to be Jan 22nd, while it is now extended to March

"The magic date of January 22nd is my birthday. According to a recent article from The Points Guy, the new Category 8 redemption requirements will not go live until sometime in March 2019. So we should have through Feb 2019 to book those high end Cat 8 properties at Cat 7 pricing."
