"Other" transferable points programs

There are many MR and UR enthusiasts (I like both), and even a few like Citi TY and Marriott (for rooms or airline transfers). But has anyone here been getting decent value by focusing spend on one of the lesser-known transferable points programs like:

 

-Venture?

-Arrival Premier?

-Diners Club?

Major spend: CSR, CFU, BBP, Costco
Rewards/AAoA ballast: CF, Discover, ED, BCE, Arrival, DoubleCash
Perks: Schwab Platinum, IHG49, Hyatt75, SPG Luxury, Delta Platinum, Aviator Red
Plan to close: Savor

I haven't tried Venture and don't have Arrival Premier.   However, as far as Diners Club Premier or Elite, there are a variety of decent promotional offers that run from time to time.  Unfortunately, most airlines listed via their portal (typically 1:1 ratio) have a tax offset fee (7.5%) that's not very appealing from the onset.  Hotels-wise, there can be some lucrative ones, IHG for example. 

 

The most recent limited-time promotion I've seen is with BA, which isn't too shabby:
