As you probably know, on milesopedia we prefer to redeem our travel points for travel.
However, at this time, many of us redeem their points for everyday purchases or to buy gift cards when they are on sale.
From May 5 to May 15, 2020(10:59 a.m. ET), RBC Rewards offers a 25% rebate when you redeem your points for gift cards.
Many merchants are available such as:
- Best Buy
- Apple Music
- Canadian Tire
For example, you can get a $50 Amazon.ca gift card by redeeming 5,250 RBC points.
Of course, we usually prefer to convert our RBC Rewards points into British Airways Executive Club Avios miles (during 30% to 50% conversion bonuses).
But right now, it may make more sense for you to liquidate points that way.
