This Chase Commercial makes the woman who spent her points on a dress seem reasonable
"So one day I noticed that I had 60,000 rewards points built up on my Chase Ink Credit Card. Don't ask me how I managed to build up that many points running a barber shop without ever thinking of anything else I might actually use those points for, because if you ask me such a thing I'll take it as doubting my acumen as a business person."
"Anyway, I had a number of options how I could use those 60,000 rewards points. Maybe some new equipment for my shop? Maybe a vacation? Maybe I could even donate them to a worthy cause?"
"After very little thought, I decided that I'd spend the points on chicken wire and plastic ferns and take an entire day erecting a gigantic green fake mustache over my barbershop. Sure we had to close for the day to get this thing built, but now that it's done I think it looks really great. I think my staff agrees with me, even though they seem to be rolling their eyes a lot lately and I do hear quite a bit more whispering than I used to- stuff about no bonuses and why I cancelled the staff Christmas party this year or me having my head up my ass or something."
"Anyway, I think it was a great idea, and I can't wait to get home to tell the wife how I used the 60,000 points. She never bought the idea that I could be a good businessman- well, this is really going to show her!"
