Anyone ever done the Create Your Reward option?

I noticed this today while I was trying to figure out what to do with my points. Do you think they let you use your points for whatever you want? And would you get a good redemption rate?



Let me know your thoughts

If I had to guess, I would bet you'd receive less than 1 cent/point by redeeming through this option.

yeah you're right. I called them and they said you can basically get anything you want at 16667 points per $100

Amex told me today that it's 167 points per dollar, and can only be done in 20,000 point increments.

AKA 20,000 points get you $120 in rewards.

(same valuation as previous poster, just said a bit differently).
