Popgadget Giveaway from American Express! My Life on Points
Popgadget is once again teaming up with American Express to give our readers a chance to win a $100 American Express Gift Card. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be exploring all the vast options available through the Membership Rewards Program and choosing my top 5 picks in three points categories: 25,000 points, 50,000 points, and 75,000 points.
As a new mother and a gadget fanatic, I expect that most of my favorite finds will be focused in baby gear and electronics. Right now I'm looking for the perfect high chair as well as anything that will educate and entertain (preferably at the same time) my one-year old son. I'm also going through a bit of a gadget accessories obsession at the moment, so I'm looking for the perfect cases for my iPad 2 and MacBook Air. I also need to find a few gifts so I'm hoping to find something besides just gift cards (although they are the perfect last-minute gift for anyone).
As I post my own favorite finds, I'd love to know what your top five favorite finds in each price point category are as well. At the end of the program (after I've posted my top five picks in each point category), we'll pick a winner for the $100 Amex gift card.
