Abstract: We prove a general result on the cardinality of reduced powers of structures via filters that has several consequences including the following: if $ I$ is a uniform, countably complete ideal on the real line $ \mathcal{R}$ and $ \mathcal{B}$ is the Boolean algebra of subsets of $ \mathcal{R}$ modulo $ I$, then $ \left\vert \mathcal{B} \right\vert > {2^{{\aleph _0}}}$ and if $ {2^\nu } \leq {2^{{\aleph _0}}}$ for all $ \nu < {2^{{\aleph _0}}}$ then $ \left\vert \mathcal{B} \right\vert = {2^{{2^{{\aleph _0}}}}}$. This strengthens some results of Kunen and Pelc [7] and Prikry [8] obtained by Boolean ultrapower techniques. Our arguments are all combinatorial and some applications are included.
