    Just made a terrible value redemption in order to help a family figure

    A friend needs to go see her granddad in the UK as he has terminal cancer. She is strapped for cash and couldn't really afford to go. So I offered to buy her the tickets using points.

    Painfully slow QFF gift card redemption

    Sick of my QFF points sitting there gathering dust, so I took advantage of the gift card sale they had. Fiancee works for Apple so we get a pretty hefty discount, and I needed a new Mac for the business so got enough gift cards to cover what I was after. 3 days later, still haven't had them sent...
