Using (Amex/Chase) points on anything other than travel/transfer to Hotels/Airlines, is a mistake Smilie

Too bad this rewards points offer is for lousy gift cards. Would much prefer for travel offers or a gasoline GC.

You get better value for airlines than you do for cash/cards?

I don't need hotels. Flights would be good.

This has been going on for few months now. In August I got 30% off for Home depot GC and few other not so great GCs. This time I have same list as OPs list but I still have 30% off offer. YMMV

So a whopping 20% off the stores with the highest product markups in the retail business, and that is supposed to be a Slick Deal? Puhleeeze.

To me 64k gets me to Japan and back on economy super saver which cost around $1400. So to me around $2000.

to avoid risks there is the matter of learning the processes that let you transfer points without raising any red flags. Be prepared to do your homework of the kinks of your mileage program before going this route.
