How do you spend your loyalty points?

I hold loyalty cards with several shops and save all my benefits towards having a good Christmas, usually managing to get most of my gifts and seasonal food with my card points. This year I am still saving points towards the Christmas expenses but I have ear marked one card, Nectar, and I am saving for a lap top computer, since there is no way I could afford one otherwise. Are you saving your loyalty rewards for a special treat, or do you cash them in frequently, to make sure you get the rewards, in case the firm goes down?

Nope, I don't think any of us are, but then to be fair neither are the shops. We had an excellent Marks and Spencers here and there were thousands of people who signed a petition to keep it here but they did not listen and they moved it to a huge shopping precinct half of us can not get to. Did you see anything interesting on the Tesco link I sent?

Well our loyalty points most of them you have to redeem them within 3 months of receiving them, so that is why I mainly buy clothes with mine mostly for myself but when it is coming close to one of my family or friends birthdays then I will buy them something special for them.

Have you any photos of your very favourite or best bargain buys from your points? I have used mine for presents too, but I got a disappointment. One of the schemes I am in had a really nice gold necklace and I worked out I would have the points by October and my Sister is 50 in December. The product has been taken out! grrrrrrr so much for forward planning!
