What are you saving for?

I just wondered what everyone else saved their points for on mypoints. I normally save for a gift certificate to a restaurant so that I can go on a date for less. My friend was saying she had been saving and was going to spend her points on a gift certificate to a home improvement store because she needs to finish something in her house. What are you saving your points for?

I've been saving my points for gift cards to travel. Last year I finally caved and cashed in one for a Marriott to use on a road trip my friends and I took. It was the first time I cashed in points and I was very pleased with the process. I still had a lot of points left and now I'm adding onto those again. I'd love to go to Ireland and I'm hoping I can get enough to help with the costs of hotels. I also got my mom hooked and she's been saving her points as well. Hopefully we'll get to Ireland soon!

Good luck with your trip! That is a good idea to save your points for vacations or trips!

I am saving my points for a paypal transfer or a visa card. I cant decide yet which one I want yet. However I am leaning towards the paypal transfer since its new and its less points for the same amount of money. I really enjoy mypoints and have already gotten a ten dollar giftcard from walmart from them in the mail. Its great.

I've gotten gift cards for soo many places through them. I usually cash out on restaurants as well because, like you said, it makes for a cheap date night. Right now, I'm saving mine for either a Starbucks Card or Bath and Body works so I can spend it on ME! Sometimes, if I have enough, I will cash out on cards as birthday gifts for others. It's nice that I can get a gift for someone and it didn't cost me a cent! They ship fast too!
