    I would suggest not saving too many my points. I've (knock on wood) not had any problems yet (since 2003 I think) but I have heard instances of where people have saved up high amounts, gone to cash in, and are deactivated losing all accumulated points. I try to never keep more than enough for a $50 gift card, and even then I get a little antsy..

    I'm not too worried about the points, I am still actively earning & I am working toward a specific reward. I will be there soon with it Smile

    Nice work! Will you save it all for shopping over the holiday season, or will you let the sales throughout the year lead your decisions? I prefer to shop throughout the year for some things so that I have some insurance of lessening the financial hit during the season itself.
