    not like I would offer it up?

    My friend said:
    You get only one per month, not like I would offer it up anyways.

    "not like I would offer it up anyways" means what?

    Thanks

    Your friend seems to be saying that he would not offer up his card even if there were no free items given. What exactly "offering the card up" means is still unclear, but in any case, he means "giving it up" or relinquishing it.

    It could mean, "That notwithstanding, I'm hardly likely to forsake it."
    Some context might elicit a more useful response. "To offer something up" has several meanings.
