How To Avail Of Credit Card Point Redemption

Aug 17, 2007
I have a friend who's a frequent traveler who's most of the time always out of the United States. While he's always traveling, his purchases done in other countries are done over his credit cards. He prefers using his frequent traveler credit card in buying his plane tickets as these that allow him to accumulate travel air miles. Whenever he buys plane tickets, can always redeem his accumulated travel miles to avail of discounts on his plane ticket or if he has accumulated a lot of air miles already, he can use them in buying his plane tickets alone.

My friend does have other credit cards that were offered to him from US merchant stores. The only problem he has is as he's always out in other countries, while he's able to use these credit cards, he may not be able to always to use his accumulated points from those merchant sponsored credit cards because he seldom goes to those stores anymore. In availing of credit card points other than air miles, are there other ways of redeeming them assuming that an individual may not be around all the time to shop back in the locally based stores that co-sponsored those credit cards?

The answer is yes. While an individual may be out of the country on business or leisure, the advantage provided by the internet has allowed consumers all around the world with much flexibility and benefits. Accumulated rewards points from credit cards offered by major US based merchant stores can also be redeemed online whenever he may make purchases over the internet.

A person making a book purchase online using his credit card sold to him also by the same online book retailer he's buying the book purchase right now for example may redeem his rewards points in the form of redeemable gift checks that he can later use to buy other books and have them sent over to his house in the US or send as a gift to friends or loved ones.

In order determine the number of points a person has accumulated from his purchases from his credit cards that he can later on redeem for new gift items, appliances or even equivalent travel air miles, these can also be tracked and checked from the credit card companies' websites.

Credit card companies have their own hotline numbers for inquiries on redeemable rewards. It's important to know the equivalent number of points that will be needed to redeem the equivalent items so that the credit card user may maximize the benefits and rewards that his credit can offer him on a longer-term basis.
