I would only buy points if I were a small amount of points away from a reward and had someplace specific I wanted/neded to go to before I would have the opportunity to earn the points.

Not a good deal, I would consider getting a new AA credit card or 2 when they have the 50K point bonus instead.

As hertfordshire said, I buy when I'm maybe a few hundred away from a big incentive. If i need another 300 point to get a round trip first class ticket to Hong Kong, you better believe I'll spend the lousy 30 or so dollars to but those points.
