http://www.mypoints.com/emp/u/redemptionCatalog.vm?brand=RedCross This arrived in my email a little after 6pm Friday 9/2. "Donate points for hurricane disaster relief" My Points is redeeming points for Hurricane relief. Currently 500 point donations are temporarily out of stock, but they have offers for 1,000 and 2,000 point redemptions. Points will be converted to cash contributions to the American Red Cross. To give an idea of points to dollars - quickly looking at the list of redemptions - 750 points would cash in for $5 Barnes and Noble card, 1,400-1,500 for a $10 gift card to Old Navy, Home Depot, and other national retailers. 2,000 points would reward the redeemer with a $15 Blockbuster card. So maybe you don't have extra cash to donate but you might be saving points, but you don't quite have enough to redeem for something more. Donating your points would be a less stressful than writing a check if you've been hammered with the sharply increased fuel prices this week. It's worth consideration. I will cross-post to the Rewards Board as well.
