MyPoints is a great way to add to your fund with very little work. MyPoints allows you to cash out for a wide range of gift cards in several amounts. Cash out quickly, or build up your points to get a higher value card for a discounted number of points!
Under Shop, you will find the Shopping Portal. When you do your shopping online, just search for the website and be rewarded with points per dollar. The site even gives you a break down of points per dollar/ % per dollar, so you don’t have to break out the calculator to figure out the value (which is especially helpful if you use other shopping portals). This is also where you will find any In-Store Promotions as well. Many SavEars find that they are being offered large amounts of points for buying a certain item and submitting a receipt for these In-Store Promotions.
The Deals tab provides you points when you complete special offers. It is usually a flat amount of points, vs. points per dollar like you would receive in the Shop tab.
Videos allow you to earn various amounts of points depending on the group of videos watched. Plus this is where you find any nCraves that may be available to watch and earn. This is just like Swagbucks!
Surveys is very self explanatory tab! Thankfully, MyPoints specifies the time commitment and how much you can expect to earn per each survey, as well as how much longer it will be active on the website. Plus, you are awarded 5 points if you attempt a survey and don’t qualify (up to 25 points per day).
Search and Earn is another way to earn points! You can earn Points randomly for your web searches throughout the day. You will see the points credit to your account once you earn via searching –The more you search, the better your chances of earning!
My favorite part of MyPoints is the daily emails. You will get several emails a week that award you 5 points when you click them.
You can cash out for a $50 Landry’s Gift Card that is valid at the following locations:
Disney World Restaurants:
