Surveys and More

May 7, 2022 by Louanne from United States

There are so many other ways to earn pts besides doing the surveys, watching videos, bonus emails, games, etc. The surveys seem a little too long and boring for me, so I usually don't do them and do some of the other stuff to earn pts. I've always received my gift cards earlier than expected and when I have communicated with customer service, they answered me in less than 24 hours, cheerful and upbeat. Love this site.

They got to be to tight to give points

May 2, 2022 by Sue from United States

This is MYPOINTs answer to everything!
I been a member for a very long time. I waiting for my gift card. Which last time i got 1 it took over 60 days to get. No emails telling me i had it. You use to get 3/4/ point to watch the videos. Kicker is after each video you watch you got to wait to see if you are a bot. Video loads you watch it, after video you go back to Discover and Rate more click next. than you got to do it all again 13 videos for 2 points.
Great Content Is not. use to you could pick what you want to. now you cannot, it goes on and on with a lot of ads for watching black tv shows. You make contact with a bunch of people who does not even read your complaint AT ALL. they have one answer for every thing.

They get paid to put it up. you waste your time watching same ads over and over again. for 2 points. YES i will be closing my account. They only care for the advertisers, None of my friends/family say it is worth them spending 4 hours on a web site for 30 points to much B S .

They Cheat You Out of Points

April 20, 2022 by Carlos from United States

I have been a member of Mypoints since 2011, but I am thinking about cancelling. They owe me over 5,500 points from various surveys and in home testing of products that they didn’t credit to my account. Not only that, but their customer service ticketing system is a joke. They haven’t even answered tickets in the last month. I can’t even get an update on the status of my open tickets.

Also, don’t even think about trying to earn points by shopping through their links. I have never once received the points without playing email tag with them. Finally, I stopped using their links completely because it wasn’t worth the trouble.
Bottom line: avoid them. They cheat you out of points every which way they can, and their customer service is a joke.

Update:April 2022

This site used to be decent, and I have been a member for over a decade, but I have about had it with them. They hardly ever credit offers anymore without badgering customer service with multiple emails, and even then sometimes they won’t pay. They still owe me over $50 for offers alone. Oh, and customer service? They don’t answer requests. At all. Of any kind. They have cut down the number of points you get for submitting receipts, and they have also cut down on the number of points surveys pay out. Speaking of surveys, sometimes they don’t credit to your account even if you can manage to complete one before some type of glitch or error happens. These people are awful, borderline criminal, and need to be out of the survey business completely.

This used to be legit . . .

January 16, 2022 by Jill from United States

Though it took a long time to accumulate points, MyPoints used to be legitimate website/app. I put up with all the technical issues and bugs, since they'd come and go. What I cannot abide any more is being completely ignored. In November 2021, I participated in 2 very high point Bonusmail offers, as well as several online purchases via their portal. There was never any acknowledgement from MyPoints, so nothing on my Activity Log to open a ticket. I sent several requests (with screenshots for proof) throughout Nov/Dec. Suddenly, a January software update allowed visibility to website visits for the purchases, so I opened tickets for them via the Activity Log. Nothing yet has been acknowledged by MyPoints!

Enough is enough. I give up!
