Mypoints; How bad?

Asked by trumi (6486points) July 22nd, 2008

Has anyone ever noticed that the http://Mypoints.com symbol is a pyramid? As in scheme? I use the site as an occasional source of free gift cards (I flick through the emails and surveys, never giving out my credit card number), and am wondering if I should quit before I get too deep.

Not only is the symbol a pyramid, but also they advertise for some interesting clients, esp. Countrywide Financial.

Any thoughts, experience, or horror stories?

I’ve used mypoints for many, many years. Almost every store in existence (except Amazon) is affiliated so I do all my shopping through mypoints.

I’ve cashed in points for gift cards in the past and received them in a timely manner without issue.

I’ve recently accumulated enough points for a gift card(s) worth about $200…. It’s well worth it to me!

I’ve gotten about 20$ so far, 10 more in a few days.

Like trudacia, i have been using mypoints for a long time. I have gotten about 20 gift cards so far, and i rarely online shop. It seems like a pretty good deal for just opening an email and getting automatic 5 points for that. it’s perfectly safe and secure so you don’t need to worry about identity theft. <3 that site.
