Chase (Freedom) Ultimate rewards gift card deals: 10% off Lowe's and Home Depot gift cards.
For example: $100 gift card can be redeemed for 9,000 points (instead of 10,000 points)
Also Barns and Noble 10% off gift cards.
Don't know when it will expire. But the last time they offered it, it lasted quite a while.
As for me, just in time for BF holiday shopping!
Happy hunting!

Two other chase cards, either of which (in additional to a few others) can make your chase points worth a lot more than just 10% better if used toward travel.

In summary-
If you never travel this deal is a reasonable use of chase points

If you travel with any frequency this is a terrible value for chase points

What deal can you get for traveling with these? Usually when I travel, I can find better deals else where instead of dealing with rewards points. So even with 20% off deal at a regular price using rewards points, still, can't beat the deals I can find else where.

150% point redemption value, so 33% off.

I redeemed for 2 Home Depot $100 gift cards (90K points each) last Friday, Nov 9 for a large project, still waiting for them in the mail ... and most likely won't arrive for my last purchase for the project.

Meanwhile, all the discounted Home Depot eGC I've purchased/redeemed from other places arrived in a few minutes to next day at most.

FYI, the new self checkout booths with wireless handheld scanner guns (same gun used by cashier personnel) found in updated stores have no problem scanning the eGC bar codes from my phone screen, while the older stationary scanners (that has laser scanners at the bottom and front that scans the product UPC codes you hold near, the same type used in many supermarket SCO lanes) don't work with my phone screen and require manual scanning/entry by SCO personnel (they are also more finicky with printed GC bar codes). I suspect the non-large item-friendly stationary scanners, designed before the smartphone age, will go away eventually.

UPDATE: received my cards on Sat, Nov 17, eight days after ordering. "CHASE ultimate rewards" and "Rewards Information Enclosed" prominently printed on envelope.

With a CSP the minimum extra you get toward travel is 25%.

With a CSR the minimum extra you get toward travel is 50%

And if your travel dates are at all flexible it's pretty easy with point transfers to airlines to get more like 100% more value for coach flights, and 400-500% more value for business class flights.

Hyatt hotels you can usually get roughly 100% more value on too, but if you tend to stay at cheap hotels that won't beat the 50% bonus the CSR gets using the travel portal instead.


10-20% more is utter crap value for chase points if you're someone who travels at least occasionally.

Samsung Pay for certain Samsung devices has both Lowe's and Home Depot gift cards for 10% off. $45 for $50. Limit 2 per 24 hours. I'm not sure when the special will expire.

Redemption for travel is a much better choice unless you really need something from home Depot.
