    Default What do you do with your rewards points?

    I have around 60,000 rewards points on my Gold Premier Rewards card and I was wondering what would be the best thing to redeem points for?

    What do you use your points for?

    I once used 40k points to get some dre beats studios, will never do it again. Nothing beats redeeming for travel purposes. It gives you the best return.

    I have used mine towards tickets for the grammy nominations concert. I don't feel like I get a lot of value out of my PRG, though.
