Re: Rewards: What have you gotten with yours?

[ Edited ]

$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 $7.6k (10/12) -> $19.7k (3x CLI), Amazon Chase Visa $3.1k (10/12), Citi Forward Student $4k (11/12), Chase Southwest RR Premier $8k siggy (3/13 - 50k sign up bonus)

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

Re: Rewards: What have you gotten with yours?

NOTHING YET! I have about 16k MR points with amex :smileysad: Still building it up. I feel like 16k isn't a lot. But i've spend quite a bit using my card though.


I'm currently in the process of getting my 40K Rewards points from chase for my CSP.
