So unless you already had 200 points, then you would STILL have to buy the 1500 point package which would STILL cost the same amount regardless of the sale.
Consumer pedantry here, but you CAN buy 400 point bundles from:

So, 3x400 = 1200 points is a possibility.

And there's always points left over. That's how they sell you more of them - Sunk Cost fallacy and all that.
