Zync will stay at 1 pt per dollar. That was just a rumor about losing the pts system.

Re: Zync(Unicorn) Using Points For Charges?

It is basically a statement credit, except they will most likely let you choose a specific charge on your card. 

 

remember they're MRe points, probably not worth that much this way (or any other way for that matter). 

 

AFAIK if you PC you keep your points, but they will change to full MR points (since the higher tier charge cards are regular MR cards) but I may be mistaken. they'll be worth more that way as well.

Re: Zync(Unicorn) Using Points For Charges?

the pts for purchases isn't anything new its been there for awhile if im not mistaken i think i always had that option and i got it back in 2011, maybe they are just trying to get people to use the points, but agree its just a rumor about them disc the points, if they do i will prob. close it i dont see the need for a charge anymore and def wont be paying 90 and up for green or PGR
