Very bad idea

Gift cards are the worst reward to accept based on the value you’re receiving. In order to get your best value, book travel through your card’s travel portal or transfer it to a airline/hotel partner

D1, is it still a good idea to transfer to airline even if you don’t plan on using the points for another year?

@SC2 no. At the end of the day the points are free money so if you need to use them to buy a gift card you need for something else than you do that
