You cannot use your points to purchase airfare or car rental. That is number 1.
Number 2, you only can use very little points on anything else. The savings you get are nothing you can't find on any travel website. Lastly, the First Friday is also a scam. You can't use it on anything you want.
They have special deals from 11am-3pm that you can use it on if you get it fast enough. Basically the only purpose of this whole system is that on the First Friday of every month at 11am If you looking for a random vacation and random time, you may be able to book it for free/us your points on it.
Reason of review: Not as described.
