Hot Topic points are worth 5 cents each, on average. For example, 10,000 Hot Topic points have a dollar value of roughly $500. As a result, Hot Topic points are more valuable than the average clothing store's rewards points, which are valued at 3.18 cents each.
The easiest way to calculate the value of a retailer's rewards points for any redemption method is to determine the dollar value of what you're redeeming for, minus any taxes and fees that you'll still have to pay, and then divide that amount by the number of points you're required to redeem. For your convenience, here's the formula for Hot Topic points:
