Credit card points and cash back statements can help net the perfect gift for mom.
San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
Mother's Day is this Sunday, but odds are many consumers are still searching for a gift for mom. What many shoppers don't consider is that credit card points and cash back opportunities can help net the perfect gift this Mother's Day while saving consumers money.
After all, what better way to redeem cash back or points than on mom? To help out consumers stuck on what to shop for, Creditnet.com - leading authority on credit card rewards points - has 5 last minute Mother's Day gifts that can be purchased with credit card points. According to Creditnet, this is an excellent way for consumers to shop for mom since redemption is simple, options aplenty and the price extremely budget-friendly.
With that, here are 5 ways credit card consumers can turn credit card points into a last-minute Mother's Day gift.
1.) Beauty Products
Retailers like AVON, Bed Bath & Beyond, Beauty.com and others have partnered with Discover to save members as much as 20 percent cash back when cardholders shop through their online marketplace and pay with Discover. Discover it® cardholders will not only save up to 20 percent on last-minute Mother's Day gifts, but will also be privy to a Cashback Concierge(SM) that will serve as a guide to the most possible cash back rewards for members.
This is one way to save on a last-minute gift item for mom that she's sure to love.
2.) Designer Clothing
For mom's that aren't quite ready to wear "Mom Jeans" exclusively, American Express members can now save as much as 70 percent off designer brands at Vente-Privee.
Discover members can can also redeem cash back and save up to 20 percent on purchases at household names like Ann Taylor, Macy's and Bloomingdale's among others. Dress mom up for Mother's Day and earn cash back or points while doing so when you shop through an issuer's online mall.
3.) New Camera
Let's face it - moms like pictures. So what better gift to give than a sweet new camera, perhaps even the Canon® PowerShot model offered through Chase's Ultimate Rewards(SM) program?
Consumers whose moms are borderline luddites would also be wise (and kind) to include a tutorial along with this gift. The results are likely to be some crystal-clear memories as well as some slightly-embarrassing Facebook posts. At least it's all in love!
4.) Send Mom on Vacation
For the ultra-generous with some serious miles or points to burn, sending your mom on a cruise or a flight abroad is a Mother's Day gift she won't soon forget. Even using just some of those points while booking through a credit card's rewards system can save some serious coin on a last-minute Mother's Day adventure.
The aforementioned Chase Ultimate Rewards(SM) program allows consumers to save as much as 20 percent on travel purchases when cardholders redeem points for airfare, hotels, car rentals and cruises. According to Chase, Chase Sapphire Preferred® members can book a $500 flight for just 40,000 miles - a 20 percent savings value.
And for Chase Sapphire Preferred® members that can't send mom to the Caribbean on the whim, dining out purchases (i.e. brunch) earn double points, so don't hesitate to pick up the tab.
Than again, when all else fails...
5.) Send Her Flowers!
Once more, Discover cardholders can shop online through Discover and send flowers or a gift basket through one of their partnered retailers; 1-800-Flowers, ProFlowers and 1-800-BASKETS are all offering a 20 percent Cashback Bonus® when consumers shop through them.
Send mom love with the help of cash back rewards or points this Mother's Day.
