We want you to know that we get it – all this points stuff can be hard work!

The number of earning options is mind boggling at times. And figuring out how to spend those hard earned points? That’s a whole separate monster unto itself.

We know these trips don’t come easily, but here’s the good part: it can definitely be done!

Real people just like you are cashing in their points all over the place.

How do we know? We’ve invited our friends to tell you exactly how they’ve done it, right here in the Real Redemptions series.
