I like to consider myself a thrifty gift shopper. Throughout the year, I scope out sales and purchase gifts to put aside for the holidays. While I can take care of a lot of gifts this way, there are a few things that come up around the holidays, adding to the holiday gift list.
We struggle during the holiday months, property tax bills come in for our vehicles, doctor’s bills come in from the kids getting sick, it just feels like a lot of things pile in at once.
One way we stretch our dollars is by redeeming credit card rewards points for holiday gifts. Plus, when we shop online we can even earn bonus points.
Chase Freedom, Chase Sapphire and Ink from Chase all come with Ultimate Rewards, letting you redeem reward points for things like travel, gift cards, cash back, merchandise and more. I’ve been a Chase cardholder for several years and love the rewards; sometimes I even redeem them for a little treat to myself.
I’m still working on this year’s holiday gift list, but last year I was able to do some fun things with our credit card reward points.
And with Chase Freedom, cardholders can save 10 – 20 percent by redeeming cash back rewards for gifts cards to give as gifts or to use toward holiday shopping at major retailers!
Here are some ideas for redeeming cash back rewards for gifts:
- Movie Night Gift Pack – Add a gift card into a popcorn bucket along with some candy and you can make a really cute gift basket.
- Shopping Spree for the Teen – Get gift cards for a few different retailers where your teen likes to shop; gift them together and your teen can have a fun little shopping spree
- Gifts for Mom or Grandparents – Give them a relaxing day to themselves with a SpaFinder.com gift card
- Gift Cards for Christmas Shopping –It’s inevitable that toys are on the holiday gift list; use a Kohl’s gift card and purchase toys for the kids. Or even purchase a toy or two to teach your children about giving and take the toys to your local charity.
