How many of you never got your GC?

I cashed out my points for a Starbucks card that I wanted to give my man for Christmas and here it is 7 months later and still no card. Is this just a fraud site or did I need to follow up with them?

You should follow up. I cashed out recently and got my card in about 5 days. I actually cashed out for the $10 starbucks card. I have never had problems cashing out with my points.

I have been a member of mypoints for years and have received GC many times for food. Wish I could earn points faster but that is my only complaint. They have always been prompt.

Yeah, I figured out that there was a mix up with the cashing out process. Its ok. I have a little more to earn now though, I think they went up some points on stuff.

I have been using mypoints since 2004 and have ordered many gift cards and have gotten them with in 2 weeks.I would email mypoints and tell them the situation so they can find out what the problem is.

They are not a fraud site. I've been a member for years and never had a problem when I redeemed my points. Thew cards usually arrived within three weeks of when I requested them. I would say that either their was some glitch with the computer when you ordered, or your card got delivered to the wrong address and whoever got it kept it. Stick with it though, you have plenty of time to earn another card or cards for this coming christmas.

I would follow up with them for sure. I have been a member since 2000 and never had any problems with them. I have always gotten the gift cards with in 2-4 weeks. Don't give up on them! It is a wonderful site!

This is def not a scam site. I have gotten a ten dollar walmart card from them. I would suggest following up with them and seeing what is going on. I am sure that they will try to work with you to get you your giftcard. I am really sorry that this happened to you since mypoints is a really great site. I would stick with them if I was you.

Nope. I've been a member with them since 1998. No, no scam. It amazes me you waited seven months without contacting them. It takes around one to three weeks to get the gift card. Definitely contact them ASAP. Did you ever receive the gift card? I do apologize for that problem because I've gotten all my gift cards from them. Cheers! Pablo

I am glad you got it figured out. I thought their points to cash out went up also. I hope you were able to earn your gift card.

I would follow up--- 7 months is a LONG time to wait. I'm currently waiting for 3 cards to come right now and I'm searching to find how long it takes to receive payment. I sure hope we get our cards much sooner then 7 months! I know they are legit, they have tv commercials and my Bzzz company is now associated with them too, so I can earn ALOT of points at once. I love it! I hope you get your card soon...

I love MyPoints. I have gotten at least 10 Starbucks cards in just the last 6 months or so. I don't do a whole lot of shopping through them, though. I just do surveys and read sites to earn points. But, as soon as I have enough for a Starbucks card, I order it and usually get it in a week or two at the most. I'd contact them.
