Save Money at MyPoints
This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of MyPoints for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
Do you know about the Great Offers and Deals at MyPoints? Basically you can do all of the things you normally do online, from shopping to clipping coupons, but now you can earn redeemable points by doing it all at MyPoints. MyPoints has relationships with over a 1,000 online retailers. So you will be shopping your favorite brands and stores, and earning points redeemable for gift cards, travel miles, PayPal, and Facebook. You even have the option of donating points for charity. I only wish I had know about MyPoints sooner.
So how does it work? You will shop and coupon just like you normally do, but through MyPoints. It's free and easy to sign up and Save Money at MyPoints. It only took me a few seconds to create a password account. You will need to enter your basic information, email, name, date of birth, and gender. Once you have an account you can create a profile by answering a few more easy questions. By completing your profile you will help MyPoints learn what sort of Awesome Daily Deals you are most interested in. Not only that, but by completing your profile you will earn 60 points! Besides clipping coupons and shopping, you can earn points by taking online surveys, referring friends, playing MyPoints branded online games, email offers, and buying gift cards to participating retailers. For me though, it's all about the online shopping. We live in a small town, so the vast majority of our shopping, especially for holidays and gifts, is done online.
Here are a list of only a few of the many retailers you can shop at MyPoints: Walmart, Sears, JCPenney, Khols, Amazon, Cabelas, Nordstrom, Sephora, Toys R Us, Walgreens, Target, Best Buy, Dell, Bath and Body Works, Office Max, Lowes, Home Depot, Gap, Macy, and Barnes and Noble. I don't know about you, but these are retailers I already shop at. Why not shop and coupon with them through MyPoints and save time, money, and earn redeemable points. Walmart and Walgreens I even shop on a weekly basis. Of course by boys can't get enough of Cabelas, and since we don't have one in our town, we always shop online.
So how do points add up? Well they add up quickly, especially in your first 30 days of using MyPoints. New MyPoints members receive double points on purchases made in the first 30 days. Here is a quick example of how points can add up, first create a complete profile worth 60 points, clip 10 coupons worth 125 points, take a survey worth 65 points, refer a friend to MyPoints and receive 750 points! That's not all, you will receive 10% of all points earned by friends referred in bonus points. You see how these points can really add up quickly.
So how will you earn your points, and what will you redeem them on? Please let me know in a comment below. Right now I have some birthday shopping to do for my oldest son online at Walmart. Right now you can receive through MyPoints a $20 eGift card when you purchase a Cruiser bicycle at Walmart, how cool is that. Buying a Walmart $50 gift card will earn you 7,600 points! It's no wonder MyPoints is the pioneer and leader in online shopping rewards.
