I’ve been waiting and watching for changes to the Ultimate Rewards Mall, but somehow missed this. Thanks to reader Randy for pointing this out! Home Depot purchases made through the Ultimate Rewards Mall now give 10 points per dollar (up from 5)! If you have any big home projects or tools or appliances to buy, this could be a great way to earn tons of points.
If you’re a frequent reader of mine, you’re probably wondering whether a double dip is possible. That is, can you earn 20 points per dollar by buying gift cards through the UR Mall and then using them through the UR Mall? I don’t know for sure, but it might be possible. On MilePoint one person reported that the double dip did work despite the terms and conditions that say “Not eligible on gift cards”. I’ll give this a try, of course, and I’ll report back. If anyone reading this has already tried, please let us know how it turned out!
