    How do you redeem 3000 points in one transaction. I thought it was a minimum of $5.

    • Mary C says:

      i just came back here to say the same thing. My Wags says it has to be 5000 to be redeemed.

        Q: What is the process for redeeming my points in store?
        – Hide Answer

        A: You can redeem points once you ACCUMULATE 5,000 points. To redeem in store, you will be prompted by the sales associate to choose to either redeem your points or continue earning points on that purchase. You can elect to redeem or keep saving using the pin pad at checkout or by telling the sales associate. You can choose to redeem all, SOME, or none of your points.
