How To Redeem Speedway Points For Gift Card? [Updated!]

The Speedway Rewards Program is back. And what a glorious sight it is. Reaping the rewards of a purchase made months or years ago? Riding the wave of Christmas and the new year? Checking one more item off your Christmas and New Year’s gift list? Yeah, we’re feeling that too.

Why? Well, it’s simple. The Speedway Rewards Program is the best cash-back program for customers who love collecting cash prizes. And what’s more is they will double your money-back offer if you use this link this winter? Talk about a Christmas and New Year’s present?

Update Your Details

Before you rush off to purchase that Nintendo Switch, call us first. Just to make sure you’ve got the right device. We might be able to help. Otherwise, sorry buddy.

Anyway, the reason we get a kick out of this is because it’s so easy. Especially since most of us are already on social media. All you need to do is log in to your account. And then click the button that says “Update Details.”

From there, you will see a form where you can enter a promotional code. If you already have an account, you can use the QR code to scan and add the promo code. Otherwise, you can simply input it manually.

Spend $35 Or More On Any Nintendo Switch Product

The best part of the Speedway Rewards Program is that you can get double your cash back if you meet the right criteria. So, if you’re looking for a Nintendo Switch anyway, why not? It’s a great holiday gift idea. Or, you could go the extra mile. And buy the Nintendo Switch Lite. Or, the new Super Mario Bros. Ultimate. We know what you’re thinking. Or, maybe you need a Nintendo Switch for your kids. In that case, get them the Switch Lite.

No matter what your reasons are for wanting a Nintendo Switch, the Speedway Rewards Program offers an easy way to get extra cash back. As long as you meet the right conditions. Which, these days, are pretty easy to do.

The Conditions Are Easy

Let’s break down the conditions for the speedway rewards program. They are as follows:

  • You must be signed up for the Speedway Rewards Program
  • Your membership must be verified
  • You must have made a purchase from an online store that’s a member of the Amazon Smile charity program
  • You must add at least $35 of purchases to your Amazon Amazon account before you can qualify
  • The purchases must be fulfilled by Amazon
  • The transactions must go through by January 31, 2020
  • You have to complete a minimum of three qualifying transactions to get your cash back

If you can meet these criteria, you’ll be able to get your cash back. As long as you do, in fact, meet the criteria. Which, luckily, you can confirm by going to your account and looking under “My Account” where you will see a small button that says “See Details.” Or, you can click here, and it’ll take you to your account so you can confirm.

In order to confirm, you must either (a) log in to your account or (b) click the confirmation link that will be sent to you by email.

Why The Amazon Smile Charity Program?

So you know how much we love Amazon. Don’t worry, we hate to spend too much time on social media. But for some reason, we can’t stay away. Especially when it comes to Amazon. Even though they take a chunk of change out of every purchase.

The problem is, since Amazon is a big company, a lot of small businesses don’t get the support they need from Amazon. Especially during the holidays. When all they want is to make sure their store is going to be open on Cyber Weekend.

And this is where the Amazon Smile charity program comes in handy. Which is a cause-based affiliate marketing program that allows businesses to receive donations in the form of discounts on product purchases from their favorite stores. If you’re worried about getting support when you’re a small business owner, this is the place to be.

How To Redeem?

Once you’ve confirmed that you do, in fact, meet the criteria, you’ll see a form asking you to enter a redemption code. You can either (a) use the code that was provided to you or (b) click “Redeem Now” to manually enter a code.

If you go the manual route, you’ll be able to find the code under “My Account.” Where you can also find all the other codes you’ve redeemed for. (Codes are case-sensitive.)

If you chose the first option, you’ll automatically be taken to a page with all the other rewards you can redeem for. As long as you’ve got a PayPal account, you can immediately claim your gift card. (Except when using the code. In that case, you’ll need to follow the instructions on the page.)

Get A Tax Deduction

Another great thing about the Amazon Smile charity program is that you can claim a tax deduction. This is especially beneficial if you’re in a higher tax bracket. Or you’re a business owner who pays a substantial amount of income tax. (If you’re in a lower tax bracket, you may not see the advantage of this. But still, it’s worth it.)

This is an especially great option if you’re looking for a Christmas or New Year’s present for your spouse. Or yourself. If you itemize your deductions, you can add the value of the gift card on your taxes. (Just remember to use the value of the card, not the remaining amount on it. You’ll want to report the value of what you actually use.)

This is also a great option if you’re looking for a unique item that isn’t on Amazon. But still wants to fulfill a particular wish or need. Like my wife. She wanted a new couch and had her eyes on this one. But it wasn’t on Amazon. So, she got me to order it for her. And I got a tax deduction for the whole thing. (I’m not going to lie, it was a hell of a couch. But, still, it’s not like I said I was getting her a new bike or something. So it was kind of fair.)

More Than One Option

While you may only have one code at the moment. You can visit the Speedway website via your desktop and get a second code. Just for taking a quick peek. (Not that we would know anything about that.)

Or, you can sign up for a My Starbucks Rewards account. (More on this below.) And get a third code. For getting a Velveterian coffee. Or, for becoming a “Barista Champion” which apparently is what they call someone who makes the perfect coffee every time. (Talk about an impressive feat.)

So, if you want to be able to get a Tim Horton’s coffee, as long as you’re in Canada, you can put in a request for a special code. (But who isn’t in Canada? It’s the Great White North. Everyone knows what Tim Horton’s is. So, unless you’re in Canada, getting a Tim’s coffee may not be possible. There’s a lot of speculation that this is actually an exercise to see how many times you can type “Tim’s” into the search bar without it auto-suggesting “Tim Hortons.” You’d be surprised how many times it’ll suggest “twenty”. So instead of typing “Tim’s,” you end up with “twenty Tim’s.”)

These are just some of the ways you can get your speedway points. And what’s great about all of this is you can do all of this right from the comfort of your home or office. As long as you’ve got a WiFi connection and an Internet browser.

Final Word

So, what’s your take away from all of this? Is all this noise and marketing talk keeping you away from your essential shopping? Does all the Christmas-related chatter confuse you as to what’s actually good for the holiday?
