Finally received my first ThankYou member reward a couple of days ago! It only took 3 weeks to get here even though customer service told me it would take 6-8 weeks (felt like rebate status for a minute). Anyways… I got the Target $100 Gift Card, with a cute lil doggy sitting in a car on it. It took 10,000 ThankYou points to get that! When I used it at Target today, I only got one thing because I was afraid of getting bamboozled at the counter (maybe the card wouldn’t work? who knows, these things happen!). It was a Target brand (ghetto) bottle of Tylenol ‘cos this one heffer I love is giving me a major headache.
The point system is really easy to break down. I don’t understand why people would ever retrieve their ThankYou points for merchandise on the site. The isht doesn’t add up and you would be wasting money when you can get it cheaper somewhere else. Might as well get you a gift card! There are even gas cards, but they don’t have one for Chevron so I got Target instead.
Other things you can get…
- Check to pay your student loan (up to $100)
- Blockbuster cards for rentals
- Other retailer gift cards for Macy’s, Nike, Footlocker, Gap, etc.
- Phone cards
- Dining gift cards (Quiznos, Panera Bread, Starbucks, Chili’s, Applebee’s, etc.)
- Best Buy, Comp USA, and Circuit City gift cards
- Even statement credit
The gift cards come in increments of $10, $15, $25, $50, and $100, $250 I’ve seen some gift cards for like $500 but not at anywhere you would go (and I just know).
