ThankYou Rewards Cyber Monday only (Dec 1): Nikon L830 superzoom for 14800 Thank You Points (= $148 eq)

If you are part of the Citibank Thank You Rewards program (many of their credit cards are part of this program), they will have select merchandise redemption promotions on Cyber Monday (December 1st, 2014). Of the ones shown on their website, the Nikon Coolpix L830 will be offered for 50% off in redemption points. Normally this requires 29600 points to be redeemed, which is very unfavorable considering the camera goes for $200 at Amazon and will go for $170 with freebies during Black Friday. However, on Cyber Monday, you can redeem this for half the points, so 50% of 29600 = 14800 = $148 equivalent assuming a 1:1 points to pennies ratio.

This turned into a long post (I need to stop reading GRRM, it worsens my sprawling writing “condition”), more after the break…
