[Roots] Roots I-envelope 5,500 RBC Points vs $78 Retail

As the year starts winding down I start looking at ways to use my RBC Reward points for possible Christmas gifts and I think I found a fairly good deal:

* Roots Canada sells a 100% Italian leather iPad sleeve for $78 (Link)
* RBC currently has the same sleeve available for 5,500 points (Link)
* If I look to convert points to dollars, a Roots $25 gift card costs 3,000 pts (or $0.0083/pt). So the 5,500 points for this sleeve ends up "costing" $45.83...which is a nice savings as there is also no tax when using points.

This item is also getting great reviews and looks like it'll make a nice gift for my spouse as she loves this look.
