Why not just buy gift cards and collect enough gift cards to buy expensive stuff!

@OP giftcard are not eligible for points redemption

Yes. I use mostly for $20 dollar items (shampoo, etc)

Lol

This sucks. Could have saved some money and got a watch or tablet

I have 4 dollars so far

Op, I think that’s the point...

So...the value of the info they’re collecting on me is valued over $2 if they include what they think will hook me into more purchases? Huh. I guess $50/month is enough to sway me

The way around this is to buy something and return it, you get your points back 6 weeks later. Took me two months to get an Xbox and a couple games

I would would never do this, but you can also return your stuff at other stores with generous return policies for store credit (I.e. Nordstrom’s, Home Depot). Bonus that you’ll usually get returned the taxes from the other store (that you didn’t pay when you bought using shopyourway points) and can then flip the gift card for less the taxes amount. Now you have cash.

Aa1, that is very unethical

Pwc2 that’s why I would never do it.

Hi all! Would anyone know how safe Park Hill is? I'm specifically looking at MLK Jr. Blvd, about 5~10 blocks east of Colorado Blvd, near the City of Axum Park.

Ideally, I'd like to commute into downtown via public transit 1-2 times a week, so any insights into Denver buses would also be greatly appreciated!

Just booked a stay for February for them and read the following “Hotel rewards e-certificates can only be requested by a Marriott Rewards member for a reservation in that member's own name. E-certificates will not be honored”
