100 points = $1 in future purchase discount
100 point to the dollar
edit ,, beat me by a moment.
I think that it's 1 cent per point. You get ten points per dollar spent.
Yep, 1 point = 1 cent. I've been earning and redeeming them quite a bit this year (I redeem them for purchases I don't want the wife to know about )
Nevermind, went off wrong information I think.

I make easy things hard.
You should see me trying to explain the basics of the windows interface to my parents.
It's not pretty.
So... do you think it's 1¢ per point?
Can you use your points when ordering online? I'm probably missing it, but I don't see that option.
^^^ - I don't think so. You have to call them and place the order that way.
Nu-uh, I've always found it during checkout. Isn't there a radial button for it?
The "team points" deal is just a way of getting you to buy stuff in Performance shops. The only time it really makes sense is if you have made the decision to buy a high end bike in a performance store. Then you can get a few bucks credit on your one time purchase toward some accessories you might want for that bike. Other than that, these kind of deals don't offer much benefit, still less because you pay into it, and just ties you to the store as you try to buy enough to make up the up front payment.
Performance will do it because it costs them nothing. They charge a yearly fee, which is set by the average payout they make over all their customers. So they break even on the deal and, in the process, tie customers to their store. It increases sales without any associated cost.
The only other time I'd consider it is if Performance was the only place I shopped already (perhaps there are no good bike shops around or something). Then, if you buy a lot, your rebate is greater than your buy in and you are basically being subsidized by those people who thought it was a good deal but didn't buy enough to cover their buy-in cost.

Edit: Besides lube and prolink, I get everything else from BikesDirect.
Edit Edit: Seriously, it's ******** that Performance doesn't carry clothing in small. What only fat people shop there?
Heaven forbid I make the mistake of going to the physical store where the prices are even higher and they still don't have much in stock. If performance closed their doors tomorrow I think the cycling community would be MUCH better off for it.
Anyone know where else to get recovery stuff besides them? Really, I'm curious—maybe you know something I don't.
I'm not sure I'll renew it again. The first year was good because I got the free sub to Bicycling Magazine, but I didn't get that this year with the renewal and I'm not buying as much from them as I did in the past (more specialized needs).
