It is just a matter of picking and choosing when to use them. Like the OP stated, I have certainly seen times when using 3,000 points would save me a whole $5, and I've seen others, especially in...

GretelNick is correct on this. The safest bet is to use them for redemptions to be consumed before their expiration date. The sooner the better in case you have to reschedule.
