Frequent flyer miles or save a $100?

put in a bid on priceline that will save me $100 off of the the cheapest flight I've been able to find so far. Catch is I won't be able to put the miles towards my account. Worth it?

generally it's not worth it but you can calculate how much points your losing and get an idea of how much it's worth. Like here we have scene points for movies, you can save I think 15% or get 100 points which is 1/10th of a free movie.

or you could figure out how many flights you'd need to get a free flight and go from there.

I value miles at approximately 1.5 cents per mile. Given that, saving the $100 is most likely a much better deal. You would need to earn a crap load of miles to make it worth $100.
