My Thoughts

To participate in this offer, you must login into your TrueBlue account, and click on the option of either Buy Points or Gift Points. The bonus is hardcoded, so there is no need to register, and you’ll see the offer appear automatically when trying to purchase points.

Through this offer if you were to purchase 30,000 points for $886.88, you would be receiving 45,000 points, bringing the per-point cost to about 1.97 cents per point, which is not a great deal since you only get about a 1-1.7 cents per point value when you redeem. Ordinarily I’d suggest staying away from this promo, but if you need to top up your account for a specific redemption, it’s something to consider.
