Did I miss anything?
MyPoints is great if you do a lot of online shopping. Their list of partners is pretty extensive, and depending on the store, you can earn anywhere from 1 point per dollar to 5 points per dollar and sometimes more. With that being said, sometimes (very rarely) MyPoints/something messes up and you aren't rewarded for your purchases. Annoying.
If you don't do much online shopping, it takes a really long time to get a lot of points. I barely ever qualify for surveys anymore, so I rely on my occasional online purchases, BonusMail (emails with click thru links for 5-10 points each), and the 10 points I get for NOT qualifying for the daily surveys. In three months, I've made 5300 points. (Most $50 giftcards are 6850 points, while a $50 PayPal giftcard is 8950.) Hope this helps!
Once upon a time My Points, based on my experience deserved 5 stars. Based on my latest experience I am deleting my account as soon as I can cash out with the lowest possible points. I made a fairly large purchase from Walmart by clicking through a bonus points email for Walmart and even though I can tell their customer service the date and the specific email I clicked through and the specific email they refuse to award my points based on feedback from Walmart. This tells me I as a customer have no value, only the corporations they deal with
This company is bad at sending you a check. I was told let me see if he is doing payouts and if so you will get your check and that has been three weeks. Every time I cash out this is what I go through. I have been with this company for many years and this is how they treat me. When we do these surveys for my points, we are making money for them. They should give us more respect when we are making this better for them.
Here is their lame response. Horrible!
Notice the word "unable". They are able just not willing to treat members right

The merchant responded to the order inquiry. Unfortunately your purchase was not credited to MyPoints. As MyPoints was not credited with the sale, we are unable to award the Points.
To prevent Point-crediting issues in the future, we recommend the following:
1. Make sure you have tracking enabled. MyPoints needs to send information to the merchant and cannot do so if you've disabled tracking.
2. Make sure you do not have ad blocking software like AdBlock Plus, WOT or Noscript running.
3. Make sure no other tabs or windows are open at the time you're making your transaction.
4. Make sure non-MyPoints toolbars (ShopatHome) or extensions (Ownza button) are not hijacking MyPoints tracking
5. Make your purchase immediately after you click through MyPoints.
6. Do not click on other sites after clicking through MyPoints and prior to submitting your order.
7. Never use coupons or offers not found on MyPoints.com.
