@ 4. No shame in redeeming for 1.5% with CSR.
i guess i’l upgrade my CSP to Reserve and downgrade united club to the no AF


Since few people would actually buy Chase points for 2 cents each, I think a more “real world” valuation of them would be 1.25 cents. So buying and liquidating 10 gift cards would net you (in the real world) about $120. Is that worth your time? I’d say it depends. What it depends on is how easily you can liquidate these gift cards. If you want to buy money orders with them, I’d say you’re likely to wear out your welcome at the supermarket (or similar establishment) pretty quickly, and maybe you’re better off liquidating other gift cards (like those worth $500).


Anyone have any insight if these deals will be replacing the “no fee on VGC” deals? I loaded up a few weeks ago on MGC and ready for more. Margin at $1.95 is less appealing.


Staples is downgrading the $7 off to $5 off.
Seeing how well it will perform.


So we should all exhibit restraint and wait. Let them see they don’t sell at only $5 off.


Yes, I think this is a bad thing. I go big on the fee-free visas at Staples and don’t bother with the deal at Office Depot where $300 of visas with some cash back still costs you a few dollars. Why pay $1.95 for 1000 UR points when they could be gotten free? I agree we should boycott.
