    Are there ever any good GCs besides the restaurant.com GCs? I don't have a burning desire to own Coke merch, nor do I want the restaurant.com cards. Anyone ever get anything good??

    Same with Pampers rewards. They had some good GCs last year when I only had a few hundred points.

    Just biding my time til something good presents itself.

    Off the top of my head, Nike.com and AMC theaters. I think there are pull down menus by reward type to narrow your parameters.

    Thanks. Yeah, I check that way and/or look at what I can get in my point range.

    I guess "anything good" is a relative term. I was hoping for more than a $10 Dominos card for 600 points. But, it's ten bucks I didn't have, right? Nike.com would be a good one though...

    I always use my points for free coke. It's a vicious cycle:eek:

    I use my points for the AMC theater rewards (usually 1 ticket + 1 large drink) most of the time. I have used points for a magazine subscription once, and occasionally I will use points for more Coke. :)

    I've cashed out my last few times for Hilton Honors points. They had them for a pretty good rate, and I was able to get enough to bump me to my next free night. :)

    It seems the "good" gc's run 1000-2000 points. I didn't see anything that called my name either. I did see AMC and Nike.com stuff and I have seen subway, best buy, southwest in past.

    They had SeaWorld/Aquatica tickets earlier this year...I think they were close to 2000 points for a package of two. I just bought a ticket to my local(ish) Six Flags today for 250 points (Wednesday Deal).

    I tend to check once or twice a week to see what they've added.

    ...and for any Twilight fans....or moms/dads of Twilight fans, they've got some Breaking Dawn branded items in the RC right now for a fairly low point value. I think 750 points gets you a hoodie.

    Last year (around the holidays) they had good gift cards. They had Best Buy, Marshall's, Home Depot and a few others I can't think of right now.

    I just keep adding them to my account and wait for the good cards. Around Thanksgiving you have to check everyday - the good ones go fast!

    I usually cash out every 485 for the AMC but last year got burned at the holidays when there were a lot of good gift cards sometimes at great rates so this year I am letting my points accumulate a little (not a lot because as soon as you get carried away with saving points they up the cost of items).

    I plan to use mine to get free coke for Thanksgiving. We host anywhere from 10-30 people and soda for that many can really add up! I use points once a year to get DH his Wired magazine.

    I haven't used mine lately, I still have a ton of codes to enter. I have used mine for free admission to the World of Coke in Atlanta. I would love to have an AMC theater here, I would be using those deals all the time.

    They used to have TGIFriday's gift cards, but haven't seen those in awhile. I have used them for cases of Cokes when they have the specials of 12 packs for like 30 points.

    Hold out just a little longer, and be sure to check the coke site EVERY WEDNESDAY. Wednesday is when they have their "special" deals... like today is a 6 Flags ticket for 250 pts (reg 1000).

    If they follow their past pattern, in a few weeks, they will release a special selection of awesome giftcards at "half-points." And the DIS will be one of the first places you'll hear about it. if you search this forum, you will find the thread from last year which will talk about some of the choices they had last year. Off the top of my head I recall Southwest, Best Buy, Home Depot, Subway... and I *think* Bass Pro.

    If they do it, it will be next month sometime, and I'm digging through the recycling bins like crazy right now so I'm not 10-points-shy like I am right now... one more diet coke code would do it... (with the october bonus)... I'm so mad I haven't gotten any points from McD Monopoly (why don't they just call it "McNopoly, it would be easier to say...)

    Of course, no guarantee they'll do it this year, but save your points just in case....

    You posters are awesome! I have used a few points here and there to try for sweepstakes (you never know!) but I have been saving to see if anything comes up that I could really use; I would love Subway, Best Buy, etc.; with your hints I will start my search every day next month; I have over 2,000 points so I will have to get my husband to start drinking more Coke Zero! Thanks again!

    I have cashed out for free coke or powerade and also for snapfish rewards (you get a code for a calender or prints, you pay shipping) I've also cashed out for world of coke tickets, they have some tshirts and I also get magazine subs sometimes. They have all you if you use coupons.

    I have had them take anywhere from 1 week to a month or more, especially if it's one of the special promotions.

    Thanks! This is the sort of news I was hoping for. I will be sure to keep checking and keep adding points.
