I’ve been using MyPoints since 2008. I have gotten a lot of gift cards from them.
I mostly just click the emails and save the points up, however, there are other ways to earn points. I also buy through their website to earn points.
One time I signed up for DirectTV and received 5,000 points and that was a $25 gift card of my choice from redeemable MyPoints points. Then DirectTV directly sent me a $25 Visa gift card for signing up. It was a great deal! I just keep a lookout for these types of deals and then sign up for them via the MyPoints website to earn redeemable points. In the meantime, just click the emails and earn 5 points per email you read from MyPoints.
Other ways to earn on MyPoints are: Do surveys Watch videos Play games Search in their search engine
You can do this to earn gift cards FREE just like me! It’s easy!
This is more powerful on the computer, however you can make more money on the mobile version because the payouts are better. The iPoll app has missions at stores. When a new mission is available, you will take a survey. If you quality for the mission, you will receive another survey on the app. The spots are limited, so you will have to move yourself fast to the store they want you to go to for the mission. Once you are at the store they want you to be, you take the survey. Sometimes it involves taking pictures or videos, or recording your voice into the app. These types of surveys pay on average $10 each.
The website has a ton more surveys to take, but they are usually around $1.50 or less. On the website, you can also do tasks on the computer. These are like mini jobs that pay per job. I’ve seen anywhere from 1 penny to .10 cents per job.
You have to accumulate at least $10 to cash out. I would recommend you wait and save for a higher dollar amount, as the $10 cash out reward is not that great. It get’s good at $25 redemptions.
iPoll takes anywhere from 1 week to 1 month to pay your cash out. it’s worth the wait to me! I really love this app!
These are screenshots from my email for my last two redemptions.
Here’s a screenshot of their website, you will get a $5 sign up bonus! I wish they had that special when I signed up.
UPDATE JAN 2015 This company has collected all the data they needed so they have stopped and removed the app from the APP store. This will no longer work. I will update if they start again. I really miss this app. I made about $50 a year on here. It helped for the holidays!
This app is available for the iphone or android phones. Once you have it on your phone, you make sure your location services are on. Every time you go shopping to any store, you should receive a pop up for a survey on how your trip went. You have to take the survey pretty quickly, within 6 hours, or it could no longer be available. The survey takes about 3 minutes to complete and is 99% of the time the same exact questions as the survey before. You can hide your location for 2 hours inside the app if you do not want to receive a survey. Once you take the survey, you are rewarded with points. It is usually 10 points, but could vary. Their gift card redemption points are at the 500 ($5), 1,000 ($10), 15,000 ($15) and the 3,000 ($30) mark. They have Amazon, Starbucks, and Fandango. I was able to cash out on 500 points for a $5 Amazon gift card twice in 3 months. Here is a picture of my last reward from Locately.
Locately does not have an affiliate program at this time. I have linked directly to the app store for iPhone. There doesn’t seem to be an app for androids for this company yet. The app is FREE.
This is an 8 week study on how you use the internet to search. After the 8 weeks is up, you will be credited 25,000 points and can instantly redeem it for a $25 gift card.
At MySoapBox.com you take surveys and participate in in home studies or can possibly receive a free sample to try out for free. Once you get to 25,000 points and cash out, you can then cash out for only 5,000 points, which is a quick $5 in your pocket. The surveys are usually around 1,000 or more so it shouldn’t take long after the initial 25,000 points. Join up with this 8 week study and you will have some extra cash by Christmas with your new gift card!
