MyPoints Plus a Funny Video
Are you using MyPoints?
Basically, it’s an online shopping portal that rewards its members with points for shopping with them, just like other sites such as Ebates and UPromise. In addition to earning points from shopping, they also offer the so-called BonusMail to help members accumulate points if they don’t feel like shopping with them. In the BonusMail, advertisers put their ads and if I shop through the link in the email, I will receive the bonus points. Otherwise, I can still get some points by just clicking the ads. Here’s what a BonusMail looks like:
In addition to products and services (check out their website for details about they are offering. There are a lots, but I don’t use any of them), BonusMail also delivers surveys which pay anywhere from 30 to 100 points per qualified and completed survey. For me, though some product promotions promise a large amount of points, I never bought anything from them. Not that I don’t trust their site or program. I am just not a big fan of rewards points. I prefer to receive rebates in cash and generally avoid using credit card that only rewards points, though in most cases the points can be redeemed for products, gift cards, or even cash. Nonetheless, whenever the BonusMail hits my mailbox, I still click the Get Points button and collect 5 points. Since I joined the program in early 2006, I have accumulated nearly 2900 points by just clicking the ads and delete the mail immediately. Since they usually send out multiple BonusMails every day, it’s not that hard to add up points and redeem them for a gift card (I will need a couple of hundreds more points in order to get a $25 gift card). And what I feel the best of it is it doesn’t need much effort either. Click and delete!
Anyway, this morning I got another BonusMail with this video:
Quite funny, huh? And I got 10 points for just watching it
