    Has anyone ever calculated the approximate monetary value of CET Great Gift Wrap up points? DaiLun, I'm looking at you...

    Trying to decide which October offer I want to book...

    This year the GGWU value has declined slightly vs. 2015.
    A close approximation would be 350 GGWU points is worth ONE Dollar in purchasing value.
    (Last year it was 300 to $1.00).

    You also earn less than last year. They used to give GGWU points on bonus tier points, too, but they aren't doing that this year. I've earned 48k tier points this year, WITHOUT any of the bonuses, and I have 48k GGWU points.

    30k GGWU points is $100 free play, so I'm not even close to $200. I had $500 free play and $20 in Home Depot gift cards last year and only did 58k tier before bonuses.

    Thanks, I didn't realize how little they are worth. There is one October promo where you get like 20k GGWU points, and another where you get a $200 Southwest gift card. Guess I'll be doing the gift card...
