Updated 12/29 at 7am PT: I still have 724 FlexPoints ready to give to readers. If you need a few extra FlexPoints to book an award ticket by 12/31, please read this post and leave a comment below. Thank you.
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.
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!
