If you check the merchant terms and conditions for MyPoints’ shopping partners, you’ll find the purchases of gift cards are often excluded from Point-eligibility. One exception to this rule is MyPoints’ very own MyGiftCardsPlus where you can earn Points per dollar for every gift card you buy!
MyGiftCardsPlus specializes in eCards, but there are a handful of brands for which physical cards are also offered. eCards are accepted by most merchants for online and in-store purchases. If you’re looking to give one as a gift, print out the eCard and enclose it in a greeting card! It will function the same as a physical card–without the wasteful and landfill-bound plastic!
In addition to offering the equivalent of up to 13% cashback in the form of Points, make sure to check MyGiftCardsPlus for weekly promotions of increased Points for specific brands or 100 Point bonuses on each brand purchase of $50 or more.
In addition to using grocery coupons to save on groceries at Safeway, you can buy Safeway gift cards from MyGiftCardsPlus and earn Points for your grocery shopping! Buying gift cards for planned shopping trips is a great way to earn additional Points.
If you’re making a MyGiftCardsPlus purchase for your Monthly Goals activities, make sure that if your goal is greater than 1 transaction, you make your purchases in completely separate sessions so that they count as individual transactions.
Also, if you have an account with our sister site Swagbucks, make sure when you’re making your MyGiftCardsPlus purchase, you are on the site powered by MyPoints and offering Points rather than SB. We cannot transfer transactions from one account to another, so make sure you have set your account to be credited to MyPoints by following the instructions in this blog post.
Once you’ve completed your purchase, allow a few days for processing before you receive your eCards.
