    I received a letter in the mail yesterday that my Patriots NFL Extra Points through my Bank of America credit card are going to expire. The last day to earn points is 7/31 and the last day to redeem points is 8/31.

    I wanted to give everyone a heads up in case others have cards as well. I always thought this was a pretty cool program, I redeemed points in 2007 for pregame field passes to the SD game.

    Now I have to figure out what to do with the 37,000 points that I have on my account currently.

    Are you certain it's all your points? I haven't received that letter yet, but I do know from the fine print that your points expire on a rotating basis after 5 years, I had to redeem 3,500 by the end of April or I would have lost them...I ended up with a "Let's Go Pats" flashing light for the mancave. If it truly is all points then not sure how I'll use them but will be fun to burn thru them!

    Thanks for the idea, I was saving for that, but they are 50k points and sold out anyway.

    Here is some of the stuff I was looking at. What do you guys think? I do need to decorate my man cave so maybe this is a good time to cash out anyway.

    Autographed SB poster (one of top 10 players) - 17,650
    Game worn gloves (no specific player mentioned) - 13,650
    SB 39 panoramic poster - 3,300
    Randy Moss autographed Football - 35,000
    Authentic helmet (no autograph) - 33,050
    Game worn Cleat (no specific player mentioned) - 21,600
    Mayo Authentic Jersey - 31,850
    Vinatieri Autographed replica jersey - 17,550

    I am really p.o.'ed about this. I loved that program! I have 100,000 points saved up!

    I used this for my business and have accrued over 700,000 points over the years. I got my season tickets that way (500,000 points) and I already got the team signed helmet and used about 95,000 to use on airfare for my family to disney last summer.
    Johnathan Kraft ran this thing for the pats and he treated me and my family great after we turned in the half mill for the renewable season tix. He even made me fan of the game and game me a pair asante samuel (yeah I know) game worn gloves. Someday when I figure out how to post photos here, I'll put up the one of me holding the giant visa card on the jumbtron :D

    if I knew this I would have used some of them for the dinner with BB. I always figured there would be next year.

    Do you think they will still let us use them as worldpoints and trade them in for retail items and travel? Or do you think they will just expire because they originated as extrapoints?

    I loved the program too. Before the announcement, I got a Winter Jacket. I had over 90,000 points so I got the following so far.... I feel like I am on the old Wheels of Fortune. Still have some points left which I will spend with the final earned points.

    Blizzzard - in the past has Bank of America let you convert the points to other rewards programs like World Points? I don't have enough Extra Points to get what I was saving up for (100 level tickets for the Colts game), and I don't think I'll accumulate enough by 7/31. It would be nice if I could roll over my existing points to another BoA program, rather than losing them. I'll have to give them a call...

    For those of you who love the Patriots Extra Points experiences as me and my father have. The Patriots Extra Points people have assured us the program will continue with another card holder and info for this should be available soon.

    Sux that points expire.

    Through the Years My father who uses his card for business and me who takes years to accumilate enough for the small experiences have cashed in for some pretty cool events.

    We have made the BB diner an anually event and hopefully we can make it next year if they continue it which they said they would be.

    We sat in on a recording of Patriot All Access and Met Lynch.

    We have done the VIP training camp with a lunch with a Scout. I did it a few years ago and we got Jon Robinson who is now head of scouting and my father did it last year again with a Business guy.

    We have done the pre game side line pass a couple times once my father did it and once I did it for him.

    We have gotten to know some of the people who work the program and they are all nice and very helpful and hopefully they are employed by the team and not the card as I would be happy to have them still working there as some have gotten to know us too.

    Well I have to figure out what to do with 10,000 or so points I have left. My father just cashed in for the BB diner and he luckily doesn't have to many extra right now.

    Our biggest concern with the end of this program is getting the new card and getting enough points for next years dinner.

    Oh I am well aware that I hit the Patsfan lottery when I was born into this family.

    Papa Joe Got things started with my father when we first got a team here. They were off and on season ticket holders and very loyal fans for a long time and once the Patriots got a home Papa Joe got the Season tickets back and kept them for good, passing them over to my fathers name in the early 80s.

    My first memories of Football are watching Tippet destroy people. Then when I was truly old enough to understand the game and really follow it Kraft bought the team, Parcells took over coaching, and we got a legitimate franchise QB in Drew (not neccessarily in that order) and well I think you guys know the rest of the story at least on the football field.


    I have 2 other brothers and Between the three of us, our father, and grandfather we all just prepetuated this fandom basically into a religion which dominates our family and family plans. Mom has learned to live with it and since the winning even learned to enjoy it.

    Thanks for posting this! I hadn't seen this yet and didn't recieve anything from BOA... I had been saving up for the "field goal worker for a game" experience and was up to 88k points (150 for that one), but quickly went in and redeemed for the VIP Press Pass experience. I was lucky as the only options left were the 2 pre-season and the Ravens; so I grabbed the Ravens game. Has anyone done this? Seems like a good experience. Thanks again for the heads up! now to spend the remaining 13k...

    My father had contemplated this for awhile and kept coming back to one problem. If he did it he would have to watch the game from the press box instead of our seats and he would have to keep his cheering to himself. Definitely seems like a cool experieince and you will have to provide a detailed post for all of us.

    That makes sense, we're (wife and I) on the waiting list, so this is one less game to scour the TicketExchange for. It sounds really cool and I'll be sure to post pics and details after. Will have to ask if they'll let me bring my dSLR, otherwise I'll have to use this as an excuse to get a new, better pocket camera to make sure the pics are good from this.
