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.
Over the years MyPoints went from a great site to a terrible site.
I was a member for 8 yrs and my "anniversary email" gave me 5 points for clicking on an ad for being a "valuable member"
Their surveys are a bust and are time consuming.
If you make purchases good luck getting the promised credits.
It will take you 1 year to accumulate enough pts for a 10 buck gift card.
All in all -don't waste your time.
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.
All I get from that site is 10 crummy points and they send a lot of junk in your email and if you want to redeem your points it will take you a very long time to get there and I don't apply for stuff they sent half of the time...I might drop out of mypoints to go elsewhere If I continue getting ten weak points
All I gained from MyPoints was a lot of spam in my email inbox. Their surveys seemed to all be Ipsos. Go for it if you like to be stuck in survey qualifying loops with no pay for your wasted time. The main focus of their site is to get you to install toolbars and tracking software on you computer. Oh, and don't forget... BUY!!! BUY!!! BUY!!! from anyone online that they've partnered with so they can collect a cut of the sale. I couldn't even print coupons from their site without installing 'software'! Stay away from this one.
