Rewarding Moments: March 4, 2021

Today’s Rewarding Moment comes from Rita Bernhart who joined MyPoints in November 1998 after doing a search for saving money.

Her favorite way to earn is taking in-home product surveys.

Here is her story:

“My family and I go on a family reunion vacation every year in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

A few years ago, my husband was severely injured on his job and he had to retire prematurely. Our budget was and still has been cut down considerably.

When we were planning for our family vacation, I realized that money was going to be very tight and we were going to have to budget carefully, especially for food.

That was when I realized that I had built up quite a bit of points through MyPoints and I decided it was time to cash them in.

I was able to trade my points for over $400.00 worth of gift cards to Sam’s Club and was able to get enough food for our family vacation!!! It was an amazing time and my family and I were never so appreciative of MyPoints!!!”

Tuesday Tips: Earning Tricks from our Members!

Every MyPoints member has their favorite ways to earn and get rewarded. Today we feature tips from Kristi Crouch on how to make MyPoints work for you:

“I always start with getting the extra 5 points for the Daily Goals. Then I try a few surveys to try and complete. Then I watch videos and try to complete all that I can under watch. I do a couple Discover and try to do a deal or two a week if possible.

My favorite way (it’s easiest) is videos but I like the surveys if I can get them. I usually make my daily goal by doing all this and I love getting a certain day streak to get extra points. It definitely helps me out.

My advice to new members is to check everything out and see what works for you. Try to set a routine because that will help. Good luck!”

Rewarding Moments: February 25, 2021

This week’s Rewarding Moment comes from Kelly Greenfield who joined MyPoints in July 2002 after discovering it through a friend.

Her favorite ways to earn include the Daily Goal, Surveys and videos.

Here is her story:

“I just bought my first house a year ago and had saved up Points to use for gift cards at Lowe’s.

I did a light remodel of my guest bathroom with new paint, shelves, showerhead and shower curtain with the Lowe’s gift cards!

I was also able to paint my office now that Covid has us working from home.

I’m currently working my way to more Lowe’s gift cards to finish my remodeling of my daughter’s room and hopefully enough for new bedding.

As a single mom of a now college student, MyPoints has been a lifesaver!!”

The bathroom looks great, Kelly! In appreciation for you sharing your story, we’ve added 1,500 Points to your account.

Tuesday Tips: Earning Tricks from our Members!

No-one knows better how to make MyPoints as rewarding as possible better than our active members!

Here are member Kathie VanDeraa’s favorite ways to earn Points and tips on how you can maximize your earnings:

“Check in every day. Make it the first thing you do when you get online so you don’t forget.

Do as many of the daily activities as you can.

Then check your email for Bonus emails – do a search for them so you can see them all at once and not miss any.

Come back to MyPoints during the day when you can relax and try a few surveys. I try the ones that are only a few minutes to try to get the daily points, then cross my fingers🤞 that a high point survey will complete.

And get in the habit of shopping through MyPoints instead of going directly to a website. The Points add up!”

Thanks, Kathie for the great MyPoints advice!
