How to Redeem Western Union Points

If you have a Western Union Gold Card and use it frequently, you may have rewards points. You can redeem points for various items such as gift cards, cash back or free phone minutes. Rewards points expire two years after the date of issue, so it's best to redeem them right away to prevent losing them.
