I have used my American Express points to buy multiple cameras, shoes, and, of course, bags from Neiman Marcus and Saks. Amex is really spreading the love this December; their Rewards just got even better. Whether a chain-accented Michael Kors bag or the sleek Apple TV (so gifting myself that), you can use your points to buy it all! I am constantly amazed at friends who don’t know how to cash in their Amex points for purchases or gift cards, I live for points and use my Amex for everything, even my phone bills, just to get more points!
Tech Snob Rich will be getting the iPad with Retina display from Kelly and me (he picked it out so I’m not spilling a secret), and the gadget bug has gotten me, too. Accessories are always nice, but I am currently obsessed with the Vitamix blender Kelly got me for my birthday. It is life-changing. I didn’t think I would even use it, but I’m taking advantage of it several times daily! If you splurge on one thing for yourself or a loved one this season, get a Vitamix!
