In most instances, redeeming your Altitude Rewards Points towards travel will give you the best value. This includes redeeming them through Altitude Travel as well as transferring your points to frequent flyer programs in order to redeem for flights.
The value you receive from either of these will depend on the travel you're booking. Vacation packages booked through Altitude Travel can yield some great results as I've seen some examples across the internet that gives 1 to 3 cents or more in value.

Altitude Rewards Points can be redeemed towards merchandise in the Altitude Store. Like many rewards programs, this options has the chance to give you the lowest redemption values.
That being said, there are usually some hidden gems that can be found when redeeming points towards merchandise as well.
If you're planning on making a purchase, checking the price of the item in the Altitude Store is not a bad thing to do as you never know what value you could get out of your points.
Generally speaking, you'd be better off purchasing the item with your card and then redeeming your points for cash back to use towards that purchase.
