Time Warner Rewards Card benefits vary depending on the specifics of the promotion for which they are issued, but they usually consist of a Visa gift card with a pre-loaded balance equaling at least $50 and rarely exceeding $300. Unless specific restrictions are noted in advance, the gift card balance can be used to purchase anything for which Visa is also accepted, including payment of the Time Warner account itself.
Some Rewards Card benefits, such as a $100 Dell Promotional Gift Card incentive offered in 2014, are tied to specific companies and therefore involve certain redemption restrictions; namely, card balances are redeemable solely in relation to products or services offered by that designated company.
In the Dell promotion, for instance, the card's use was restricted to transactions taking place on the Dell website only. In this case, the card accompanied a promotional incentive of much greater magnitude: a Dell Inspiron 11 3000 Series 2-in-1 laptop computer. So the card was a good candidate for purchasing newly needed computer supplies or related system add-ons.
A Time Warner/Bed Bath & Beyond $50 Reward Card promotion in July 2015 operated according to the same parameters as the Dell promo, with use of the gift card limited only to purchases made at Bed Bath & Beyond stores, online at the company's website or through their mail-order catalogue.
