Do anyone who needs to top up to 5,000 pts use Amazon a lot? Why not buy some Amazon vouchers, they will sit in Amazon for 10 years so you do not need to spend them quickly. One of the few vouchers I trust enough to buy. But although I do buy from Amazon occasionally never remember to buy the vouchers at Morrisons before I shop

If you regularly shop in Morrisons then could simply buy Morrisons gift cards. I'm now approaching 1000 points due to stocking up on Morrisons gift cards using the Amex promotion, but still unlikely to reach 5000 points.

... perhaps we can all merge our points onto Blyth or Sarah or someone's account so that at least one of us benefits ...
Is that possible?

Quite doubtful, I would guess, especially for accounts without matching surnames/addresses and only transferring points rather than merging the accounts themselves.

Same question here but nobody has asked Morrisons yet, so no definitive answer:

Great way if you have spare cash and would be near the 5,000 pt total.

I wish Morrisons would allow us to donate to charity. It would be easy if they had a few to choose from or even just one. Points donated and charity gets the amount of cash those points were worth

I don't know how popular those options would be. Some loyalty schemes do have charity options, including Microsoft Rewards, although I personally rarely use them since you miss out on the benefit of Gift Aid when donating in this way; perhaps they're mostly chosen by non-taxpayers.

It would be a way of our worthless points having a worth. I would love to donate my pts to a charity I do not normally support as I cannot support them all. But at the moment my points which I thought would be worth £5 eventually are going to be worthless
