This week’s Rewarding Moment comes from Taeonna Howard-Hicks who joined MyPoints in September 2009 via an advertisement.
Her favorite way to earn? “Visiting vendor sites and finding deals.”
This is her story:
“My most recent rewarding moment was [November 2020].
My son purchased his first home […] before the pandemic shutdown. It is our family tradition that we have Thanksgiving at the home of the family member who most recently purchased a home.
My son was excited about keeping this tradition alive, especially since we hadn’t celebrated birthdays, graduations, baby showers or anything else this year. Unfortunately, because there has been a resurgence in the number of COVID 19 infections, we were going to have to end a family tradition we had enjoyed for decades.
BUT, I had been collecting points and redeeming them for Home Depot gift cards for years through MyPoints. So, even in these uncertain times, I was able to use the gift cards to purchase materials to build a deck in my son’s back yard.
We will be able to have an outdoor Thanksgiving on his new deck and keep our family tradition alive. All while protecting the health of our loved ones. We will still only have 10 family members there at a time, but having the ability to keep some continuity, when everything has changed so much, is truly a cause for Thanksgiving!”
Thanks for sharing your story Taeonna! In appreciation, we’ve added 1,500 Points to your account.
