Tuesday Tips: Why do Magic Receipt offers keep disappearing from my Shopping List?

If you participate regularly in completing your partial or full To-Do List, you’ve probably been adding Magic Receipt deals to your shopping list daily.

But when you go to select an offer from your list and find it’s no longer there–what’s up with that?

MyPoints partners with various brands and retailers for these in-store offers, most of which are limited time offers with expiration dates. In some cases, the brand’s quota may be reached in advance of the stated expiration date which means the offer will be removed from the site and, consequently, from your Shopping List.

Given the limited time frame of each offer, it’s best to check your Shopping List regularly — especially before going or while shopping to make sure your purchase contains items from active offers.

Once an offer reaches its quota and is removed, there is a possibility that the brand will increase the cap and the offer will be reinstated, but for the best results, we recommend making your purchase and uploading your receipt as soon as possible.

Rewarding Moments: August 4, 2022

This week’s Rewarding Moment comes from Laura Reeve who joined MyPoints in February 2002 after being introduced to our site via her spouse.

Her favorite way to earn? “[O]rdering allergy-safe foods from Vitacost regularly for my family, ordering things from CVS (safe no-contact shopping!), finding fun stuff on eBay.

This is her story:

“While antique shop browsing is fun, using MyPoints and the rewards to help me afford artifacts as a teacher with a limited budget has been a blast!

So much of what I use in my classroom the first few weeks is from eBay through MyPoints…

My students get to explore the ideas around human history by checking out objects from the past. I’ve purchased inexpensive things like old report cards from the early 1900’s, an autograph book from the 1930’s, various lots of old photos from the late 1800s through 1940s, letters and postcards, old sewing and cooking tools.

I also managed, with MyPoints rewards, to purchase a small digital scale from eBay so I can ask my students to act as historians by weighing and measuring the objects.

It’s so much fun watching them figure out what questions to ask, where to find resources online, sorting out what things we use now that are similar, helping each other practice communication and academic skills.

So many moments of “Woah, Mrs. R., have you SEEN THIS?” from across the room! Where I teach, there isn’t money for field trips, even pre-pandemic so I get to bring history right into the classroom.”

What a cool way to use MyPoints rewards, Laura! We’re tickled to be part of helping your classes learn history. In appreciation for over 20 years of membership and for sharing your story, we’ve added 1,500 Points to your account.

Rewarding Moments: July 28, 2022

This week’s Rewarding Moment comes from LaWanda Wright who joined MyPoints in January 2010 after discovering the site while surfing the web.

Her favorite ways to earn are Surveys and taking the 7-Day Challenge.

This is her story:

“I had been playing MyPoints for several years when I decided to play for for a goal.

When I did, MyPoints helped me create a rewarding moment because one year I was able to save enough Points to purchase my husband a thousand dollars ($1,000) in Visa gift cards for his birthday.

It was so exciting.

Although it was exciting, it was hard to do enough things to get the required number of Points.

I have attached a picture of husband while we were at dinner. Actually my whole family was surprised when I told them how I had gotten the gift cards.”

Thanks for being a loyal MyPoints member for over 12 years, LaWanda! $1,000 worth of gift cards is definitely rewarding and an amazing birthday gift. We hope your husband treated himself to something really great.

In appreciation for sharing your story, we’ve added 1,500 Points to your account.

  • 1 (1-pound) box lasagna noodles (earn 3 Points)
  • 1 (9-ounce) package Chopped Spinach
  • 1 (10-ounce) package Broccoli Florets (earn 3 Points)

  • 1 large egg (earn 3 Points)
  • ½ teaspoon each Kosher salt and black pepper
  • Fresh parsley or basil leaves, torn (optional for garnish)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F.
  2. In one 9×13-inch baking dish or two 12.75 x 7.75 baking dishes, spread 1 cup of Victoria Marinara Sauce evenly over the bottom of the dish. If using two baking dishes, use approximately ½ cup of sauce per baking dish. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Once boiling, add lasagna noodles and cook according to package directions. Once pasta is cooked, drain and let cool slightly.
  4. While pasta is cooking, cook spinach and broccoli according to package directions.
  5. Allow spinach to cool and then place spinach in a clean dish towel or several paper towels and squeeze out excess moisture into the sink. Set aside.
  6. Once broccoli is cool, finely chop broccoli and set aside.
  7. In a small bowl, stir together ricotta cheese, ½ cup mozzarella cheese, parmesan cheese, egg, salt, pepper and drained spinach.
  8. To assemble the lasagna roll-ups, lay a cooked lasagna noodle on a flat surface. Using a spoon or small spatula, spread approximately 2 tablespoons of the ricotta mixture evenly across the lasagna noodle. Top the ricotta mixture with approximately 1-2 tablespoons chopped broccoli, using your fingers to gently press the broccoli into the ricotta mixture.
  9. Starting at one end of the lasagna noodle, gently roll up the noodle, tucking the broccoli in as you go.
  10. Place the lasagna roll up, seam side down, in the prepared baking dish and repeat until all the lasagna noodles are filled.
  11. Pour the remaining marinara sauce evenly over the tops of the lasagna roll ups. Sprinkle the remaining mozzarella cheese evenly on top of the marinara topped roll-ups.
  12. Bake the lasagna roll ups in a preheated 350° F oven for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is melted and bubbly and lasagna is heated through to a temperature of 165° F.
  13. Serve immediately topped with additional parmesan cheese or chopped fresh basil and parsley.

Tuesday Tips: How to Troubleshoot MyPoints App Issues

The MyPoints app is a great way to earn Points on the go: you can shop, take surveys, redeem Point Perks and more right from your mobile device.

If you are having issues with the app, here are some quick steps you can take to resolve the issue:

Step 1: Reboot your phone. This is the quickest way to resolve most app issues. Just restart your phone and see if the problems you were experiencing persist.

Step 3: Make sure your device’s OS is up-to-date.

Step 4: Check for connectivity issues. Is your provider throttling your data? Are you connected to a Wifi source?

Step 5: Try deleting and reinstalling the app.

If none of these steps resolves your issue, contact our Member Services team for additional troubleshooting. Make sure to provide information about your device (make/model/operating system) and specific details regarding the errors or issues you are experiencing.

Rewarding Moments: July 21, 2022

This week’s Rewarding Moment comes from Sharon Graczyk who joined MyPoints in January 2000 after (she thinks) seeing a Facebook ad.

Her favorite way to earn? “Love the reviewing movies or TV shows, you feel you get to impact what is being made for the public.”

This is her story:

“I have been out of work in my career as a Convention and Event Planner because of Covid and limits on large gatherings.

I am in need soon of a new iPhone.

I have been able to work towards that goal to fully pay for a new phone and have fun doing it…so grateful to Mypoints for the opportunity.

It’s such an easy and fun community plus you get paid to do it. I have always loved giving my opinion so it’s an easy way to contribute to making things better for the public.

I am now going to work for a new iPad so I have a lot more surveys to work on. They have some really fun surveys such as getting to preview new TV shows and then a few months later you see it on TV. The other fun ones are the movie themed surveys.

Sometime you also get to test products such as cleaning supplies, soft drinks, for example which is always a fun treat. Well onto more surveys…”

Thanks for sharing your story, Sharon! In appreciation, we’ve added 1,500 Points to your account.
