Redeeming À la Carte Rewards Points
À la Carte Rewards points are a flexible currency that can be redeemed for travel purchases (either made with National Bank or booked on your own), statement credits, contributing to an investment account, gift cards, and merchandise.
The best value for your À la carte rewards points is to redeem them against travel purchases made through the À la carte rewards travel agency. A close second is to redeem them against travel you have booked on your own.
