Over 1,000 MyPoints

by Kevin on April 8, 2008

I’m up to 1,125 points over at MyPoints.com. Once my wife’s account gets over 250 points, I should get a huge 1,250 point bonus. There was a referral push during March that we participated in.

I’m rather proud at how fast I’ve been able to get to over 1,000 points. I just started using My Points at the end of February. That’s about a month and a half of membership.

Now I have to decide — do I take a lower payout, or wait even longer to get a larger gift card? Either way it’s nice to know I’m earning free gift cards for very little work! I’ll probably wait for the better payout even though it will take forever to get to that point.

MyPoints lets you earn points that you can redeem for gift cards. Not a bad deal to click on a daily e-mail. Want a referral? Leave a comment and I’ll e-mail you one.

It depends on what you want to use your points for. Sometimes the points per dollar for a $10 gift card are the same as the points per dollar for a $25 gift card.

It all depends on the demand and supply so calculate each merchant you are interested in before you cash in your points. I only get WalMart and Red Lobster cards and while it was better to wait for a $25 Walmart card, it cost the same number of points for the $10 Red Lobster as the $25 Red Lobster.

I love MyPoints too. if you apply for the visa card you get a bonus 1000 points.
