they cut me off

April 24, 2020 by Beth from United States

I had been part of the panel for at least 5 years. I was abruptly cut off because they did not like the answers I gave. They said I was inconsistent in my answers. I could not reach them through their Chat feature and was directed to fill in a form. I was also blocked from redeeming over 25,000 points.

what has happened to them?

April 13, 2020 by michael from United States

AMAZON no longer participates. I have been missing 5444 points for well over two months and while following their cumbersome process to file for them, I get no response. The only thing I get back we have opened a ticket, no follow, no points. Don't recommend their open VISA or MC gift cards as no one take them. Been a member for years...toooo bad

Wow!

April 9, 2020 by Regina from United States

Sent a cash out request and was paid the next day!!

Do not have your back

April 4, 2020 by Kim from United States

Member since 1999. they locked me out after I entered my birthday after I had a birthday. They refuse to take responsibility or reinstate surveys. I do not recommend and will be leaving the site. Not worth being aggravated for pennies on the dollar.

Request first payout = Deleted Account

March 6, 2020 by John from Canada

I came to this site to find another site where I can earn rewards with Amazon payouts, on the page of the 3 sites I had never been/seen/heard of...I tried - MyPoints.
I logged in everyday, did almost every survey had to try.
I did the extra stuff to earn extra points like watch 22 videos that eat up 15mins of downloading, the daily question & then I downloaded the pc addon.
I had earned my 790 points to request my first payout of $5 Amazon.ca eCard.
This is where the problem/s occurred.
I was waiting for the payout & quickly earned another 537 in a mere 3 days.
I downloaded their pc addon...but upon reading about it, it would adjust my cookies and 3 or 4 other items where it would permit me which sites to visit, track my surfing & control what pages I visit.
I un-installed it right away, NO NAZI COMPANY is going to control my web surfing!
I even answered the question about why I deleted the download, I selected 2 answers. I forget which 2, but it was mainly about not wanting to be tracked and having my saved web pages deleted.
BOOM! The next day...I try to log in...YOUR ACCOUNT HAS BEEN DEACTIVATED!
Bottom Line: True to your company name, you kept - MyPoints!
