Best rewards program for getting gift cards?

Postby FutureBillionaire » Tue Dec 13, 2011 7:30 pm

Which credit cards let you redeem your rewards for gift cards the earliest? How long does it take for you get get your gift cards when you order them?

For example, I tend to redeem rewards for gift cards with Discover because they have more value. How does it work with Citi Dividend, Chase Freedom, etc.

Plane tickets: CSP
Groceries: AMEX BCP, Penfed Platinum Rewards,Citi TYP
Clothes: Express, Amex BCP, Discover IT
Amazon: Citi Forward, Cash +
Restaurants: Citi Forward, Chase Freedom, Discover IT, CSP

In terms of Gift Card redeem, discover cards do have the best program, which usually allows you to use 40/45 dollars for 50 gift card value.

As far as I know, Both Citi and Chase only allows you a 1:1 redeem
