To save everyone some math, using 250 points = $1 for Book Any Way travel, the $10 statement credit + 25% discount on points works out to the equivalent of $50 in statement credit, in other words, you are getting the same value as spending it on travel, which is a decent deal.

Some more info for people regarding TD Points: https://creditcardgenius.ca/blog/td-rew ... l-program/

Points are only worth $0.0025 for gift cards normally. For example at regular price it would be $50 / 20000 points = $0.0025 per point. With this offer it's $60 / 15000 points = $0.004 per point

Looking at the link above this puts the value of each point at the same level as purchasing travel outside of TD for Expedia but still under purchasing travel through TD for Expedia.

I always tell people to never spend their points on anything besides travel unless of course they don't really travel. In our current situation of COVID-19 though who knows how long it will be before we can travel anywhere so if you're itching to spend your points for some reason this would be the best current value compared to non travel ways.

With that said, I'm hanging on to my points for the time being.

I feel like this is a good out for me as i've been trying to close this card down to gain other CC offers with TD and I don't really travel too much.

The value is slightly less than redeeming on Expedia, but then again, sometimes the flight prices on Expedia are slightly higher....

I'm on the same boat. Been trying to spend my points in a reasonable way but everything was horribly valued (except for the switch around christmas which i missed out on)

This may have just given me an out as well

With my math, it is still 20% less value than booking travel with Expedia, but when will any of us want to do that.
Here is how I calculated:
150000 points = $750 on ExpediaforTD
150000 points = $500 Costco + $100 credit card credit ($600 total value)

Thanks OP, looks to be decent value for the points. Now I'll wait until Costco has their iTunes cards on sale and my Netflix subscription will be covered a bit longer :-).

I believe ExpediaForTD translates to 1 CAD per 200 TD Reward Points.

While this Costco deal translates to, 50 CAD (+10 CAD reward) on redeeming 15000 Reward Points. i.e. 1 CAD per 250 TD Reward Points

In summary, expending 25% more points to get same dollar worth if going for Costco gift card, technically.

In practice though, Costco card might be of more utility, than booking a (relatively marked-up) flight on ExpediaForTD in current COVID time.

Has something similar ever happened with another gift card (e.g. Amazon)? I don't have a Costco membership so although the redemption rate is better than usual, I wouldn't be able to use them.

"Accounts that qualify for the Offer will receive $10 statement credit on the Account for each increment of a $50.00 Costco Shop Card redemption made during the Offer Period. "

How does one know if their account qualifies?
