MyPoints is a rewards program website where members can collect reward points by making online purchases from certain retailers. Members can also earn additional points by taking surveys, reading emails, playing games, printing coupons, and more. Members may redeem their points for gift cards, travel miles or cash back.
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.

This site isn't bad at all. You'll receive at least 5 or 10 e-mails a week that you can click through to get 5 points, and they also e-mail survey links that pay 50 to 75 points a few times a week.
They partner with many online businesses, so you can also build good points by using MyPoints as an online shopping portal.
The points add up steadily- it doesn't feel like you have to do a ton of work before you've leveled up to a 10 or even $25 gift card that they will safely snail mail to you.
This is a top 10 website in the surveys world for sure- and won't do all the shady things that many fly by night entrants in this field will.
I've been a MyPoints member since the '90s. Granted, it takes a long time to build up points if you're just doing Bonus Emails and Surveys, but I also will purchase items for my business and for the family and friends, so those points can add up fast. Over the years I've cashed in a couple thousand dollars for various gift cards, mostly Home Dept, Kohls, JCPenny, etc. and those have come in very handy to save money on Black Friday, Christmas, etc. I always let the points build up so I can order the highest dollar value gift cards for the least number of points. Long term, it's a great and legitimate program.
