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.
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 David, I can send you the necessary FlexPoints. Let me email you directly for your FlexPerks account number.
Thanks Grant! I only need 81 points to round up to my next thousand. This would be sweet!
Only 81 FlexPoints? I can definitely help you out. Let me email you directly for your FlexPerks account number.
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!
Hi Madeline, I wish I could help, but I don’t have enough FlexPoints to send to you to get to the 30,000 FlexPoints limit :(
Thanks anway. I’ll just have to do it the old fashioned way – spend!
Yes, good luck with the spend requirement :)
Grant- I am almost there now – prepaid lots of bills. However, I still need 1,190 – Is there any way you can help me out as I want to book this week.
Hi Madeline, I wish I had enough FlexPoints to help, but unfortunately do not. If anyone wants to help Madeleine, you can transfer the FlexPoints to me and I will change the FlexPoints to Madeleine. Thank you everyone for your help.
I have 1400 points that aren’t going to help me at all so I may as well donate them. I love this idea!!!
@ Grant: I’ll be sending you the points shortly.
@ Madeline: My 1400 should help you reach your goals!
@ Grant: I tried to transfer my 1400 points to account number 400005503422 but it says “Account number is not recognized. Please try again.”
Hi Adam, let me email you directly.
I only need 910 flex points to get to the 20,000 point level to redeem for a $400 flight for an upcoming ski trip.
Hi Brent, I will email you and get your information to send you 910 FlexPoints. I’m glad to help you redeem your FlexPoints for a ski trip.
Grant, im 1,838 away from 20k as my last statement just posted! Have an upcoming trip I could put this to use. Thanks for helping out your readers!
Hi Diego, I can help you out too. Let me email you directly.
Grant, I only need 166 points to hit the 40000 mark. My credit card statement won’t close until after the new year. I can’t hit the mark with spending. I plan to use those points to travel during Easter holiday. Thank you for your generosity. Happy holidays.
Hi Pat, I will reach out to you directly via email. Happy to help.

Hi Grant, I need 916 to reach 20K. Would be great if you can help.
Hi Igor, can you respond to this comment and use your primary email address so I can email you directly? Thank you.
The email I used goes to me directly. Thanks!
Ok, email sent.
I tried to send you 3387 points, but I got, “Account number not recognized.” Please email me with advice. (The email address I used to post this comment should work –it’s a real email address.)
Yes, let me email you directly. Thank you.
I have 48,465 flexperks with 1,535 to reach 50,000. Would be so great if you can help me out and I am willing to give back around 600 flexperks after my closing date of this month’s statement at 12/29 (sorry for a bit too late)
I can help. Let me email you directly.
Hi, I have 990 points, so I could use 10 points for a magazine subscription (and thereby wipe out my account balance to 0!)
Would appreciate a TEN (10) point transfer to: 400003940915.
Thanks, and happy new year!
Just 10 FlexPoints? I can definitely help. I will email you directly because I need your 15 or 16 digit FlexPerks Credit Card number.
I would like to donate my orphan points your way. Would you like to e-mail me the info I need? Thanks!
Hi Andrew, thank you for your offer. I just sent you email with my information. Thank you and happy holidays.
I didn’t get it. Could you try one more time?
Email resent. I missed the first letter of your email address.
I have 28868 and would love to redeem for a trip to New york on Southwest. Can you help with 1132 Flex points please..
Hi Vitoon, I currently have ~700 FlexPoints, so I would need to get a few more FlexPoints from other readers before I can help you out with your transfer.
Thank you so much.
Hello, Can you help with 691 points?
Yes, I just sent you an email. Thank you.
