It’s day 3, and the last in my American Express gift giving challenge. You might remember from a few posts back, that Amex challenged me to use 150,000 of their Gold Card Membership Rewards points on 3 peeps on my holiday list. And they even generously offered up a $100 Amex gift card to a lucky BonBon reader, just for taking their fun Facebook quiz (hurry giveaway closes 12/16). The first gift I tackled was for Floyd and then it was on to the Dude. And last, but certainly not least, is none other than my Mom. Let’s all give a collective “Awww” for our moms!
I thought about using the points on a weekend trip to the infamous Atlantis hotel in the Bahamas (see above), but then I wasn’t sure if the logistics would be too much to try and work out for a surprise. One day soon though!
In the end I settled on this totally to die for Dooney & Bourke cherry patent leather Luisa bag. At 37,800 points I had plenty to spare, and let’s face it, it’s gorgeous!
I even had enough points left over that I was able to score this Krups Panini Maker for my dad at just 10,795 points. It looks like everyone is going to get great gifts this year and I won’t break the bank. A win win for sure!
So, now that I’ve gotten all three four of my gifts ordered using my points, I’m off to sip some hot cocoa by the fire and relax. But wait! Apparently Kristin and I are not the only ones that think you are all super awesome (as if!). Crate & Barrel liked you guys so much that they too decided to give us a $100 Crate & Barrel gift card to give away to one of our fantabulous readers. Clearly you were all very good girls and boys this year!
