The art of giving is alive and well at American Express Membership Rewards. This season they've asked a dozen bloggers to shop in the spirit of the season. Today on the 12th day of the program, I get to share one of my top holiday gifts--the SodaStream Revolution Home Soda Maker with Two Reusable Carbonating Bottles and Soda Sampler Pack
While love my handbags and baubles, this gift just rocks. I have been a SodaStream fanatic for a few years (early adopter!). When I was looking through the holiday pages of the Membership Rewards program, and spotted this, I knew we had to be together.
SodaStream Revolution Home Soda Maker package was: 44,410 Points it's now: 35,528 Points. Here's what it does--turns tap water into sparkling water in under 30 seconds. All you do is twist the refillable bottle on, push a button and viola! Sip and enjoy!
It's super green (think of all those soda and seltzer bottles you'll keep out of the dump) and it's fun for foodies since you can create flavored sodas too.
Unlike my older model, this one has a LED Screen shows carbonation process and CO2 usage status. So it's not a surprise when I am running low. It's a great gift for just about anyone on your list.
A few weeks ago we shared a story about redeeming points for a swank treat for a friend (you can check out the post here). Now I'm talking about what is on the top on my gift list.
And don't forget there are 6 Ways to Gift with Points:
Choose from the American Express online catalog.
Get a gift card to a favorite store.
Redeem for ticketmaster events.
Give back by donating points to charities.
Link your account to Amazon.
Use points to book travel.
