I love MyPoints too! I rarely ever buy anything, unless it is a website that my credit card doesn't have bonus points for. I do click the emails, and just by doing that, the points add up quickly for just a second of work.

I use EBAY AND OLD NAVY at least weekly. MYPOINTS gives me points for shopping at both these places. I have earned 5 gift cards this year, and almost up to two more. There are other stores I shop through them. It's very simple. They arrive within a couple of weeks.

Thanks,

I'm new to MyPoints and I have a question. Is there a way to search the rewards by the amount of points? not just by the merchant.

Like I want to see what I can get for around 5000 points.

I don't think they have a way to search by points. They used to. But if you just search under "All" you can scroll down and see the different rewards from all the merchants. 5000 points is enough to earn a $25 gift card with points left over. Exact number of points required various by merchant. I like to save up until I get around 7000 or so points and get a $50 gift card.

I too was disappointed that you can't search by point level, but being able to search by merchant is ok too. I love the program, I've been a user for less than a year and already have cashed out for one giftcard and can cash out for another $50 with points left over without doing any shopping online. Come Christmas time that will be a giant help!

Well, I am new to MyPoints.com, only because of the changes made by BZZAgent.

I was glad to see the change over, since I was never able to get in on a prize at BzzAgent. The changeover gave me enough points at Mypoints to cash in for a gift card....so, I added a few points by doing some 'clicking' in order to get a higher-dollar card.

Yesterday, I made my first redemption at Mypoints for a $25 Target gift card....

I'm going to stay with Mypoints, whether I remain with BzzAgent, or not (not getting any campaigns there lately)....

I get a lot of Bonus Mail from them, and do any of the "extra" or "bonus" points offers they give me. I don't shop online other than for specific occasions so sometimes they add up slowly but I get my fair share and have another gift card coming. If it will feed my hubby Subway every time he gets hungry for one it makes me happy! I'm thankful to Bzz Agent and I just hope we dont' have to pay for all of the products from now on that we Bzz.

I've apparently been a member for a couple of years and had forgotten, but still had a few hundred points. Another program I'm in (BzzzAgent) has started doing their rewards through MyPoints and transferred my points over. Thank goodness they reminded me about MyPoints! After the transfer, I was able to get 2 nice gift cards, and earning the points is sooo easy!

How long does it usually take to receive gc's after requesting them?

I requested 4 B&N gc's June 28th and have yet to receive them.

Thanks!

I have gotten a Subway GC in 2 weeks before, but I ordered the same thing a while back and it's been 2 weeks already. I think it averages 6 weeks. Hope you get your GC's soon.

I just wanted to let you know I got my Subway gift card on Friday. It took about 3 weeks, which isn't bad at all in my opinion. I always get excited and antsy waiting on them so it seems like longer! As long as I can keep hubby in Subway he's happy and I'm happy, for almost no time spent at all and practically no money.
