I looked very briefly and it seems like they're comparable at low cash levels. The $50 bonus is 15,000 points - I'll use this as the base conversion rate.
A 1,550 hat - About 7 bucks.
A 5,850 hat - A little over 25 bucks.
A 2,200 beanie - 10 bucks.
Assuming my math is correct these items are decently priced. 25 dollars is way too much for a hat in my opinion, but the argument could be made that $25 is a reasonable price for a hat. I think the 7 dollar hat is a pretty good deal, but who knows what sort of quality it is. I don't know what these items would cost if you were to pay cash, but the prices seem somewhat decent to me. And remember these prices are calculated assuming a $50 bonus, the items will obviously get cheaper if you figure for higher bonuses.
