Hi All,

I recently got a ton of points through a credit card and have a credit of $175.00 on amazon. So other than feeling like a kid in a candy store (I know, incredibly cliche), what should I buy?

Right now the HE is 119.99 and I want it, so that would leave 55 to spend on random small sets, maybe something Star Wars? OR, I spring for the Haunted House for 179.99 and put in 5 dollars of my own funds, oh the horror (no pun intended).

    I'd say get an exclusive set like HH or Arkham that you rarely find a good deal on, instead of several smaller set you can surely find discounted or for better prices on bricklink/ebay.

    Or wait for Isengard/Ewok village if you need any.

    I'm leaning towards HH for just that reason. Ewok Village obviously, but these points are burning a hole in my virtual pocket! I suspect an order by End of Day.

    If you're talking about Citi Points, you're better off using those points to buy gift cards through their ThankYou network. With 10,000 points, you can get a $100 gift card to Home Depot, or Sears, or TRU or whatever. With 10,000 points, you can only get $80 worth of stuff from Amazon. Amazon always puts those points in my face when I'm checking out, and even though it's nice seeing some convenient-to-use money there, I realize it's only 80% value and always pass.

    If you want HE and have $55 left, you could also pick up An Unexpected Gathering, which is a great set.

    Id go with either the Haunted House or wait a couple more weeks for the Tower of Orthanc.

    What I would suggest is:
    Think about what you want to buy, buy it.
    No-one here knows your likes better than you.

    We tend to discourage 'What should I buy?' type of discussions as they are purely subjective and rarely generate interesting discussion. At the end of the day only you know what you would like - so it's up to you. I'll close this thread. Thank you for your co-operation.
