Re: Rewards: What have you gotten with yours?

$300 in Amazon gift cards because I was afraid PNC would make my points worthless given how many times they've devalued them.

 

My 50k MR points and 15k TY poitns are unspent. As are my Amazon gift cards... i like hoarding and not spending!

 

EDIT: Oops forgot to mention I'll have 50k SW RR points coming in in a month or so. Gonna either take $500 in Amazon GC or get a few flights... not sure. Southwest don't really fly from my airport, or at least the deals are kinda meh for those flights, so I might take the Amazon GC.

PNC Points Visa $3.3k (5/09), Amex PRG NPSP (9/10), Amex BCP $19.7k (10/12), Chase Amazon $4.8k (10/12), Citi Forward $7.5k (11/12), Chase Southwest RR Premier $8k (3/13), Discover it $4.3k (11/13), Citi Double Cash $18k (PC'd 9/16 from AA Executive 7/15), Chase CSR $12.2k (9/16)

Gift cards - they're one of the few things that get a true 1:1 redemption.  I usually get Gap, Starbucks, and Nordstrom GCs Smiley Happy

I haven't touched my Freedom Points yet. But I recently asked for $120 statement credit from Capital One. I plan to use them for statement credits until we get more established in our new home and are ready to consider big items such as travel.
