Tuesday Tips: How to Ensure Your MGC+ Transactions are credited to MyPoints

We’ve posted previously about how to earn Points for shopping at MyGiftCardsPlus, but today we have a tip to make sure your purchase is credited to your MyPoints account.

Here’s how to make sure you are credited to the correct account.
