There's actually a box on the PTI check out page for Reward Points. If you wish to use the Reward Points on the current order, you check the box. If you don't, you leave it unchecked.
This would be the perfect place to say something like, "If you're taking advantage of any give-a-way/promotion, total payment AFTER Reward Points must be $100 or more. Payment AFTER Reward Points must be $70 to receive free shipping." Easy Peasy. I actually suggested that on my PTI forum post...that was deleted.
Like you would expect, PTI has rules...but they just don't put them in logical places and they are not clear. Simple adjustments could correct those issues, however...their customer service is another issue.
