My points showed up 24 hours after they usually would. Took a bit of patience, but they're there.

I'm past the halfway point of my 1-year .... so sad when this goes

Two more statements cut in the last few days.

TYP balances staring at me...mortgage check calling my name....

Must resist!

I've got more BB cards and Amazon credit than I know what to do with. At least the holidays are coming up soon.

Looks like I'm past halfway point too. Time to ramp it up towards the finish line :P

I've managed to spend just fine, tyvm! You can literally buy ANYTHING on amazon so how are you not using it? Sure some things are a bit pricey so compare shop to ebay and other places first, but the UPS man is at our house almost daily still. Hope they get paid by the package!

Oh, trust me...it will get spent!
I'm just building up the GC balance right now. Amazon credit is as good as cash to me.

But if you can buy Amazon GC at a nice discount, then using TYP for Amazon is a loss from cash. I am still sitting on a boatload of Amazon GC bought last year with I believe an effective 17%+ discount from deal at grocery store. I think it was buy $100 GC get $10 grocery credit, plus I used 5% CC I had at the time, and I believe I got fuel perks or something for another couple %. They will probably have the same thing this holiday season.

That's the same day I ordered. Thanks for the response. I got a couple WM as well. I'm nearing the point where I"m going to ramp up my spending on this card so I can get a pile of them. I don't want to risk closure because I love my Forward card.

If my dad has a TYP, is it advisable to transfer some points to him to make a flight booking? I wouldn't want that to set off any flags.

Out of last 12 orders, four of them were shipped the same or next business day and the rest were shipped in 2-3 business days.
