Rewards for Shopping

September 17, 2010 by Judy from United States

I have been with this site for several years. There are not so many surveys, but you accumulate points for clicking on their emails.. and you get points when you go through "mypoints" to do your shopping. You can even get points for $ spent on QVC and HSN.. I see something on TV and get online to buy it. I've gotten about 8 $50 gift certs from KMart,Penneys,Kohls.. it's worth checking out.

Good Site

September 17, 2010 by Sue from United States

The site offers alot of alternatives to earning points (good for gift cards etal). Some surveys (mostly OTX); alot of emails; lots of sites for shopping; extra points if you add their search engine to your PC; does take awhile to accumulate pts if you don't shop, but not bad; they have a involved (cumbersome at times) accounting system so you can keep track of the status your points -- which is alot better than many sites. Only complaint is the site is slow - slow to load; slow to credit -- but in the end, they've always come through.

Takes awhile

September 17, 2010 by Windy from United States

This is a site that you can do some surveys and get points. You have to get 1450 points to get a gift card for $10. If you don't shop by mail and link to their shopping sites, it takes some time to earn your points. Click through sites are worth about 5 points.

Stay away from this scam!
