    Ok, as someone said, you can trade in your points for cash. This begs the question of why the company would do this. This would have to add overhead to maintain the site for cashing points, providing gifts, etc. Why not just give you the money?

    My guess is that if they give you points, then you redeem them for things (including cash), you will be taxed the Gift Tax rate of approximately 40% and the company will not be required to pay various taxes that they have to pay for regular employees.

An adequate bootstrap is a contradiction in terms.
