Have you heard of Mypoints.com?? It is a pretty cool rewards site that you earn points towards gift cards. 


I’ve been a member since 2008 and have redeemed my points for multiple gift cards. MyPoints offers many different ways to earn points, here are a few of the ways I’ve earned points.


  • Online Shopping
    If you’re already a big online shopper then you’ll love being a MyPoints member.  Many of the top merchants like Barnes & Nobles, Walmart, Dell, Apple are included and you can earn up to 10 points per dollar spent!!
  • Marketing Emails
    Daily you will receive multiple emails from different companies. The companies usually offer a great deal through these emails which if you take advantage of the deal you’ll get lots of points. However if the deal doesn’t interest you, no problem, MyPoints offers you 5 points just for clicking through and not taking the deal.

The easiest way to earn points is by clicking through the advertisement emails that MyPoints sends me. If you’re like me and get tons of email every day you’ll want to make use of your email’s filtering. I filter all the MyPoints emails to one folder and take time everyday or every other day to go through the emails and click through to get my 5 points. If you do it all at once instead of as each email comes in it is much less over whelming.


  • Coupons
    You know I’m a huge couponer, and MyPoints.com offers printable coupons and you can earn points for printing & redeeming them. For every coupon printed you get 10 points. Plus earn 25 Bonus Points when you print and redeem any 10 or more coupons.com, SmartSource.com or save and redeem any 10 or more Cellfire.com coupons in a month.  I certainly do meet that second requirement each month.
  • Referrals
    And this is why I’m writing this blog post. I can earn points for referring friends as well as if they shop/earn points.  Right now there is a deal going on, if I refer you and you make a purchase of $20 or more we both get 750 points. That’s a pretty good deal.
  • Toolbar/Web Searches
    I’ve recently downloaded the toolbar and have been using the mypoints search engine for searches which after a certain number of searches I will earn points. That’s pretty easy as I do searches quite frequently.

There are lots of other ways to earn points and eventually redeem them for gift cards, the above are the main ways that I earn points.  If you’re interested in being referred let me know I’ll send you a referral email.  It’s super easy to earn points and for a little bit of effort on your part you’ll be redeeming gift cards for “free” money in no time.
