Donate a goat..

mm_goat

I used my ThankYou Points to donate a goat to a family in a foreign country through an International organization. This one goat produces a gallon of milk a day, enough to support one family's daily milk intake with enough left over to make cheese, butter, and yogurt to sell at the markets.

Track my Training

mm_car

I'm walking in a marathon in September, and I am training by myself. I live in a small town and I want to be able to walk without measuring my miles by car. This GPS training device I got with my points will allow me to train and chart my progress. Thank you!!

Keeping It In the Family

mm_car

I used my points to purchase a new set of tires for my 1955 Thunderbird which I've owned for 30 years. That car and I have been though a lot.

The "original type" tires I had on the car occasionally got scuff marks from the fender skirts and I could never pin down the problem. My points allowed me to purchase tires made from the original molds. Not only are they the correct size, tread, and whitewall width, I've found out that the original tires were slightly narrower than the ones I had. This completely eliminated the scuff marks.

I've mentioned this program to my friends. They were amazed to find they could get exactly what they wanted instead of having to rely on "catalog" selections.

Surprise Shopping Spree

I must have signed up for ThankYou Rewards ages ago and completely forgotten about it. One day while reviewing my monthly statement I saw a small notation about checking my rewards points. I went to the web site and saw that I had thousands of points, accumulated over the years. Well, it was getting close to back to school time and money was rather tight for me. My daughter really did need some new clothes for high school, so I submitted a request for $200 in gift cards to one of her favorite stores. I was quite the hero when I drove her to the store and handed those to her and said "Have fun!" It was a really good feeling.

A Family Trip Done in Style

I used my reward points to book a trip for my family to Nashville, TN. We had never been there before and had a wonderful time. The best part - we rented a Cadillac through the Rewards Network and had a great time riding in style through the streets of Nashville!

Service That's Rewarding

The service, the response was perfect. No improvement needed. What impresses me the most about ThankYou Rewards is your willingness to truly make the end experience pleasant and rewarding, key term rewarding. In one of my first experiences you replaced my 80GB MP3 player order with the 160GB version that had just been released for no more points. That's service, that's rewarding. Then when I made a 'wish' request, instead of telling me that I didn't have enough points, you took the initiative to offer an alternate solution of getting me gift cards that would get me close to the amount needed and all I would have to do is pay the balance. That's impressive, that's rewarding. I have told several people about your network and hope to steer people your way. Thanks and congratulations on a top notch program.

An Unusual Request and a Quick Delivery

I can't imagine how you could improve the program, it's great. I requested a product and got it delivered in just days! Thank you. I have wanted a meat slicer for quite sometime. I didn't see it in the product selection, so I requested it on Points Concierge and had it at my front door in just days. How easy was that?!

A Very Happy Anniversary

My wife and I are going to go on a nice relaxing vacation for our 10 year anniversary; the weekend will virtually be paid by ThankYou Rewards. It is nice to know there are organizations out there who care about me as a customer, and reward me for my loyalty.

Gift Cards for "Free"

I wanted to convey some positive feedback regarding the ThankYou Rewards program. What I enjoy most about this program is how easily it is to obtain a gift card and how quickly I receive it. Furthermore, I like the fact that I am able to select gift cards for stores that I am fond of shopping at such as Macy's, Banana Republic and Bloomingdale's. When I redeem the gift cards and purchase an item I want, it feels good. These days with the status of our economy, it is wonderful to acquire something for free or less expensively. I believe a program like this is truly very extraordinary and I want to thank you for it.

Lending a Helping Hand

With ThankYou Rewards and a ThankYou Points Expert, I was able to get my wish fulfilled promptly by donating to an international charity to help families cope with the devastation of the California Wild Fires. This was very personal to me and much appreciated. I was extremely satisfied with this experience. My deepest gratitude, thank you.

The Power of Friendship

I used my points to buy gift cards to reward some caring co-workers who helped me lose 40 pounds! They helped me with a workout plan, encouraged me to eat right, and most of all gave me the moral support I needed. When I gave them the gift cards, it brought tears to their eyes as they finally saw how much of a difference they made to my life. Not only did they help me lose weight but they also helped lower my cholesterol and blood pressure. They could have even saved my life by helping me do this.

The Dream TV

"I had been waiting for the right time to finally buy a flat panel HDTV for the heavily watched den viewing zone in my house. I kept waiting for the right time to buy the perfect TV, but the price always seemed a little too steep for my budget. Everyone in town had at least one and most of my friends had HDTV's all through the house. I set my sights on a Sony® 46" Bravia® beauty that was listed at Circuit City for $2100. To defray a big chunk of this cost, I cashed in 140,000 ThankYou Points in return for $1400 in Circuit City gift cards. Five business days later, I had my gift cards and off I went to the local Circuit City store. Bought the TV, put it in the car and within 30 minutes I was watching PGA golf and NCAA hoops in all its glory. Thanks to ThankYou Rewards for helping my HDTV dreams come true at an affordable price."*

An Olympic Champion

My daughter made the US Women's Lacrosse Team and was competing in The Champions Challenge, the trials for the 2009 Olympics in Prague. So I used my ThankYou Points to fly to Orlando, Florida to see her compete. It was exciting for all of us because she was the only girl in a college division 2 school who made the team. I was pretty excited to say the least, and it was fun to share that with a Service Center representative at ThankYou Rewards, especially since my daughter was featured in Sports Illustrated. Yes, I am a proud mom!

At Home With the Grandchildren

My mom had a heart attack recently, and when I spoke with her, she seemed really down. I thought it would be nice to use my ThankYou Points to bring her here for Christmas to see her grandkids. I am so thankful to have been able to redeem my points to do this for her.

The Perfect Bike

My daughter is blind and is unable to ride a bike by herself. She had outgrown her current bike with training wheels and I needed a bike that would have a low center bar so she could get on and off without difficulty. A ThankYou Points Expert suggested three models and I redeemed for a Tandem bike.

A Budget Solution

"Dear ThankYou Rewards,I want to send an e-mail to say thank you for the gift card. My husband was laid-off from his job for a few weeks. Instead of saving up my points for a material object, I opted to request a gift card for the grocery store I frequent. I was able to receive a $125 reward that's a week's worth of groceries for my family. I'm so grateful! Thank you for this wonderful program and for your valuable employees who worked so fast to get that gift card sent to me."

An Enduring Legacy

"Thank you so much for giving such quick attention to this request. I would like to choose the $100 charity for 12,800 points option for a native American elementary school. I'm so pleased to be able to do this. This was a pet charity of my husband's and after losing him a few years ago, I've tried to keep it up. This is perfect. I will be looking into making my wish automatic, each time I reach the required points. Thanks again, to you and to Citibank."
