One uses such a phrase when one tells one an uninteresting story. One dismisses the 'story' and 'thanks' them for it. Adding the person's name afterwards increases effectiveness.
Person 1: This one time, I broke a pen and then fixed it again.
Person 2: Thanks for that ....(person name)

Tim: This one time, two guys on the train were drinking beer, so I asked them for a sip, and they said no.
Person 2: Thanks for that Tim

Thanks can be used to show approval. It could also be used to avoid doing sth undesirable and hence a No-Thanks.

Get a Thank the thank mug for your coworker Günter.
For not giving up on me, for loving me unconditionally - the good and the bad, for finding me attractive and calling me beautiful even when I didn't think so at times, for laughing with me, for appreciating the little things that we experience together, for listening, for growing with me, for coming back to me new and improved, for wanting me all the time, for making me feel like a woman who deserves the best and for giving it to me, for letting me love you with all that I have, for reminding me that I am like no other, for looking at me the way you do, for being open to love, for supporting me, for wanting the best for me, for giving me the world, for following me anywhere and for standing by my side as I achieve my dreams.

It has been said that if you want to be happily paired with someone, make sure you are good friends first- it's the only way to make it through the hard times. The honeymoon phase only lasts so long, so make sure you find someone who loves you for you!
I'm thankful that you chose me for forever

How to thank someone who doesn't deserve the 'S' at the end of 'Thanks' or the 'You' at the end of 'Thank you.' A sarcastic 'Thank you'.
