Take a Point, Leave a Point! Share your Leftover FlexPoints to Help Other Travel Hackers

Good afternoon everyone.  As you probably know, beginning on January 1, 2018, FlexPoints will be worth a fixed 1.5 cents per point (CPP) down from their current value of up to 2.0 CPP.  This is definitely a big blow to the US Bank FlexPerks Rewards program.  I’ve been a long time fan of the US Bank FlexPerks Rewards program and first got into the program when US Bank ran their 2014 Winter Olympics promo with an increased sign up bonus for their US Bank FlexPerks Travel Rewards Visa Signature Credit Card.  Since then, I’ve earned and redeemed 200,000+ FlexPoints over the last 3+ years.

Since I can get 1.5 CPP value with my new Chase Sapphire Reserve Credit Card and Chase Ultimate Reward Points are so much easier to rack up than US Bank FlexPoints, I have decided to liquidate my FlexPoints stash.  It is a sad day and an end to an era, but all good things must come to an end.  But there is good news!  I have decided to share my 4,793 leftover FlexPoints with my readers.

If you need between 1 and 4,793 FlexPoints to book a travel redemption (at the 20,000 or 30,000 FlexPoint threshold), please leave a comment with the number of FlexPoints you need.  After a few days, I will email each commenter, starting with the smallest FlexPoint request and ask for your FlexPerks account number.  I will then transfer the number of FlexPoints you need.  This is my small gift to my readers.

As a reminder, back on February 15, 2016, US Bank lowered the limit on the number of FlexPoints you could transfer in a calendar year from 120,000 FlexPoints to 20,000 FlexPoints.

Like Santa, I double checked my FlexPoints account history between now and January 1, 2017, and I have only sent 1,313 FlexPoints YTD and received 981 FlexPoints YTD, so I have should have no problem transferring FlexPoints to my readers.

Transferring FlexPoints between accounts is very simple.  You only need to enter the number of FlexPoints you want to transfer and enter their FlexPerks account number.  The transfer is instant and free.

If you have 1,000 FlexPoints or more, you can redeem for a 1-2 year magazine subscription.  There are 23 magazine subscriptions available that only cost 1,000 FlexPoints.

Lastly, if you have any leftover FlexPoints that you want to donate to me so I can therefore donate to another member who needs FlexPoints, please send your leftover FlexPoints to 400005503422.  I promise to regift as many FlexPoints as possible until my FlexPoint account balance is at 0.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.  Have a great weekend everyone!

    Great idea, Grant! I need 1,616 points to hit my redemption threshold to book a flight by the end of the year and would appreciate any help I can get. Happy Holidays and thank you.

    Hi Grant,

    This is so generous! I actually need 8,199 to hit the 30,000 mark so I can book my ticket by the end of the year, before this disastrous switcheroo. Would appreciate any help! I was hoping to do this would with spend but this would really help. Thanks in advance!
