+1 on this question

Also, if I recall correctly, some Costco stores have a limit on the number of times where you can buy something with a giftcard but without a membership. They make you sign in at customer service and check your ID.

I find it's all over the place and you really need to shop around. Last year I went to an all inclusive in Mexico with the kids. 4 of us first class....the option was the EXACT same price as regular class. To this day I still don't understand why (I'm guessing it was a price error, other sites were charging much more but the same price for first class).

Dyklone wrote: 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’ve been thinking this as well but for my TD Aeroplane VISA. I want a pair of AirPods lol. I don’t think I’ll be using my points to travel with for at least a year or two. I could easily get a couple of giftcards somewhere and buy them instead of using cash. I feel like it makes sense for me to do that lol

Another angle at the math:

Costco shopcard (including bonus and statement credit)= $0.004 per point
ExpediaForTD = $0.005 per point

20% difference in cash value

Thank you to everyone who took the time to do the math and post. I've used ExpediaForTD a couple times the past year and not only were the prices 1:1 with the regular Expedia prices (in my experience), but they had some sweet promos (e.g $100 off $500 hotel booking, 25% off any activity, etc.).

I will be saving my points.

I'll save my points, too, because Expedia for TD has mostly the same prices as everyone else.

However, there are some issues. A large number of individually owned hotels/motels always show as fully booked on ExpediaforTD, while they are wide open to book on Expedia.ca.

Even more often, I can not find the flight itinerary I want on ExpediaforTD - then I book directly with the airline, or at times with Priceline.

In one instance, I saw that booking through ExpediaforTD meant that it was impossible to change the name of the passenger. Tickets booked directly with the airline at the same price for allow name changes (for a fee). Sadly, I noticed that too late.

If you travel for business, do not book Canadian hotels through ExpediaforTD. You can't get an itemized invoice, so you lose the GST/HST input tax credit. That's usually more than 4.5%.

And "activities" are often vastly overpriced. I've never booked one.

Having said all that, there's plenty of things where ExpediaforTD offers a good deal. I spent thousands there every year, until Covid.

Thanks OP. Just redeemed 10 X $50 cards.

I can't see my family traveling any time soon. Might as well use the points for something that we will use.

How does one know if their account qualifies?
May be this was a targeted email promotion? I received an email last night from TD rewards about this..so may be TD sent it to only those who qualified?

I had the deal listed on my launch page, maybe it’s more about the purchase date to qualify.

Thanks OP. Almost redeemed last week but got lucky that I procrastinated until now Face With Tears Of Joy

Just pulled the trigger and finally claimed 10x cards. Figured I'm better off using these points now and can close this card soon.

It's about the $10 credit back to your account.
I didn't get such email.

How would I know if I will get $10 credit back to my account after purchasing the gift card?
I had the subscription turned off, so I've never gotten any emails from TD Rewards before.
