    50000 points, I offer 1 Million points
    Article would be helpful if there was some context around what 50k points actually gets you Thank you

      You may redeem the points for cash rewards, exciting merchandise, gift cards, travel and more. What 50,000 points will get you actually depends on how you decide to use them. To put things in perspective, you earn 4 points for every $1 in qualifying purchases — but this rule does not apply when you’re redeeming your points.

      For example, you can get a $100 amazon gift card by redeeming 40,000 points, making it 4 points for every dollar. In a different scenario, 3500 points will get you a $5 Starbucks card, making it 70 points for every dollar!

      Hope this helps! Thank you for the advice!
