It’s important to keep in mind that the value of your points may depend on the redemption option. For example, you might get 1 cent per point toward travel but 0.5 cents per point toward cash back, or vice versa, depending on the card. So if you want to maximize your rewards, you should redeem Mastercard reward points for the options that give you the highest value per point.
It’s also a good idea to redeem often. Issuers have the power to devalue points (make them worth less) at any time, and some points expire after a certain amount of time.
