Redeeming CHASE points
Posted by: samintx

I used my Freedom Chase card because they were doing 5% during December. I don't usually use this card but since it was for groceries.....well, I went to redeem my points and 44.00 available but applied to credit at Amz and some other retailers only worth 35.00.

I find this strange. There must be a reason but since the Amz Visa is a Chase Visa and so is the Freedom card...I don't understand.

I got the full amt by routing to my "other bank" checking account.

We have a Chase Freedom card and I just let the points grow until I just take a credit on the account, since that it our main credit card. The only reason I can think of for your off amount on the Amazon card is that they may be available only in preset denominations. In other words, you got a $35 Amazon "gift card", and the remaining $9. is still in your Chase Freedom points account.

Just a thought.

Well it's opposite on Bank of America, my points aren't worth as much for Amazon as some of the other stores. So it must be a behind the scene deal from the company, I'm sure the credit card company tries to pay them less than the amount they will give.

There was a separate button for gift card. And yes those are only for certain amounts but other companies I could get 44.00 credit but not Amz it was a separate button.

Also, I don't ever use my Freedom card because it doesn't have 5% or even 3% I can count on because I get discount gas at a grocery store and some cards don't list Walmart Market for points. But thanks for your input.
