Is it worth it to buy Choice Points?

If you're short a few thousand points, buying Choice Points to top off your account can be worth it. For example, if a 4-night stay costs you 32,000 points and you only have 30,000 points, buying those extra 2,000 points would be a solid option assuming the redemption is offering good value.

Another reason for buying Choice Points is if you find a redemption in which buying points and redeeming them is better than paying cash. This isn't a frequent case when buying Choice Points at the standard rate, but can be when Choice Points can be purchased at a promotional price.
