Usually, you can get a much greater reward amount when you spend it on a gift card from a specific company as opposed to a cash gift card.
The best thing to do usually is wait until you have a significant amount of points saved up, because the longer you wait to spend your points the more you get in respect to what you spend...
5,000 points may by a 10$ gift card, but
10,000 points may by a 25$ gift card
(fake data to illustrate a point)
eventually when you are making a large purchase, like a new sony or apple laptop; purchase the largest gift card you can.
It may take you forever to actually save up for that laptop in points, but if you get a $100 gift-card towards the laptop, you are essentially saving 100$ (since your purchasing it anyway). This is basically the same as getting 100 cash back.
