Travel and moles are really the best way. Amex gift cards have the worst point to dollar ratio, other gift cards ratios depend on the vendor.

I use them for Amazon; it's not the best points:dollars ratio, travel is, but it's most useful for me

It's all "free money". Just use it for what ever you want. The people that worry about conversion ratios are not consultants who have hundreds of thousands of AMEX points.

Uber. Don't waste them on Amazon!

Thanks for the tips! I don't have that many points yet

I agree EY2. I get enough points to travel from loyalty ;-)
