I was originally going to just cite "frequent flyer points" in the punchline, as an example of some sort of "points" that are almost completely useless for anything practical. But then I searched using Google for "worst reward point scheme" and given what I saw on the first page of hits, I decided that citing Verizon Smart Rewards was almost certainly much, much, much funnier.
 At least I'm hoping this is the case. Living in Australia, I don't have any familiarity with Verizon as a company, since they don't operate here. But frankly, given what Google showed me about what a great loyalty reward scheme they have, I bet every single American who read this comic 2 minutes ago is still rolling on the floor laughing uncontrollably.
EDIT: As it turns out, and by complete coincidence, Verizon decided to end their Smart Rewards program, with all of the points expiring if not spent by 31 October, 2017, just 2 days prior to this comic being published. I had no idea that this was happening.
But, if anything, I think it makes the comic even funnier in hindsight, as the points are now even more useless than before.
