I am writing this from Bangalore,India.
One day I realised that I have earned enough point to redeem it so I looked at the Showcase Items and found that I have most the items and few are only for US and few I dont need.
Then a comment by ErikW in https://www-secure.symantec.com/connect/idea/symantec-rewards  gave me a new Ray of Hope

Then I logged on to Amazon website and browsed a little bit and found these two pages
http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_gw?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=international+shipping

http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_ss_cps_0_11?url=search-alias%3Dwireless-accessories&field-keywords=international+unlocked+cell+phones&sprefix=internation

Then I really Appreciate ErikW taking his time and writing this blog post which helped me a lot

Finally it was time or order goods
so I ordered these three items as a Special request

Nokia 5800 XpressMusic Unlocked Cell Phone with International 3G, 3.2 MP Camera, GPS, Wi-Fi, MicroSD Slot--International Version with No Warranty (Blue) (2340 pts) 
Galaxy 28 LED Flashlight(235 pts)
Leatherman Micra (200 pts)

It took some time for Amazon to send the Mobile phone to symantec after that was received I got email from Webwise team about my shipment details and it reached me before expected

The main fatc is to see the huge quantity of contributions coming from people that living everywhere in the world. This site is growing thanks these  people and their contributions with blogs, articles, downloads, and replies to questions, issues and etc.

Rewarding is part of this Symantec program, but is important to give an incentive to continue to give support to all these contributors.
