What a waste of SPG points used on GC's. I'm glad it worked out for you!
If you noticed they mostly got amazon and Nordstrom which is what scammers like I'm not sure why they like amazon but Nordstrom they like because you can get cash out of it by paying a drop with CC and the rest with GC and then returning and the entire refund goes on the CC
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Thanks for the warning
as a general rule don't use the link in an email go to the site directly
I know someone who nearly lost a website that he paid a few grand for because a few days after he created it he got an email about it being hacked and he should change his password, all the links on the page were legit except for the one that he was supposed to put his password into but being a vigilant man he realized it and saved himself a few grand and a big headache
