By May 18, 2011Campaigns, Reviews

I am having so much fun window shopping with American Express Membership Rewards points!  I am constantly surprised when I type a search term for something I need or want and numerous choices come up!  American Express points can be used to enhance almost any part of your life and they are super easy to earn and use.  I shouldn’t be surprised – you can shop from a million rewards and more than 500 brands!

Last week I introduced you to the My Life On Points campaign from American Express and showed you what I would choose for 25,000 points.   Then you  all told me what you would buy for a chance to win a $100 giftcard.  If you haven’t had a chance, pop over to that post for your first entry.  This week I am showing you my top 5 choices for 50,000 points and giving you anther chance to enter for the $100 American Express giftcard.  Let me tell you, at 50,000 points, the shopping is fabulous!  I need your help to find the best picks!

Here’s my top 5 for 50,000 Reward Points!

Trek by Burley Bee Child Trailer

Trek Bike Trailer

We haven’t taken a bike ride as a family in a LONG time.  Sophia can’t make it more than a couple miles and with 2 younger ones we are simply outnumbered.  I have always loved the idea of being able to take a longer ride with the kids and this little trailer would be perfect.  It holds up to 100 pounds so any two of my kiddos could climb on in!  It also folds down for storage.  I can see my bike getting more use and my thighs getting more toned!

Jasmine by Takamine Acoustic / Electric Guitar Natural42,400 Points

Jasmine Takamine

I always wanted to learn to play guitar.  My husband plays and my daughter is starting to learn.  I imagine myself strumming away and singing some Janis Joplin number on my front porch.  I was surprised to see a selection of musical instruments on the site and would love to try my hand at this good looking strummer.  I can see a Partridge Family future for us, can’t you?

Breville® Gourmet Single Serve Cup Brewer 43,700 Points

Breville Single Serving

We don’t drink coffee but I love a good cup of tea or hot chocolate and I have tried these little one cup flavors.  They are awesome!  We have a lot of guests too so this sassy machine could serve up the coffee they want without us having to brew a full 10 cups with our old coffee machine that we store in the basement.  This is a looks good, tastes better buy that makes everyone happy.

LG Soundbar Speaker – 47,800 Points

LG Soundbar

This soundbar is more for my husband than me, but man would it make him happy.  While we are not obsessed with the television, we love our music and this baby streams music from your smartphone or Ipad wirelessly with bluetooth.  Better sound for our music would just be awesome and hey – I’m sure we’ll like the better sound it will give our T.V.  This would make a great father’s day gift and unlike most speaker systems it will not take up your whole room with boxes and wires.

Kate Spade Gold Coast Small Maryanne Black44,000 Points

Kate Spade Gold Coast

This little bag is just what I need now that we are back on for real date nights!  I rarely carry a purse, but in the evenings I like to have my phone and my little wallet and my Clinique Black Honey.   I think this little number has a bit of Chanel to it and I love a bag with chain handles.  Now that I’m a grown up, a nice bag would be a great investment.
