Point earning shopping sites

United States
February 27, 2010 6:39pm CST
Hi everyone! I am looking for some more sites similar to Mypoints and RewardPort that pay for shopping and send point emails and give other ways to make points to get giftcards or cash. I will be dumping Memolink when I reach my next payout, because it just takes too long to get the points, and I have been shopping exclusively through them just to get enough points to cash out. It is not fair to the other sites, especially since they have enough points through emails, surveys, and whatever to be able to cash without shopping. I would prefer to shop with them. I live in the US. Do you have any recommendations for me?

Swagbucks is a little better then Mypoints in my opinion, though the site has changed a bit but its still pretty good. they have lots of gift cards such as cards from paypal, target, amazon, JCpenny, and more. if you want you can join in my profile its free and you dont need referals to earn stuff there I've earned a few gift cards there.

It is better than mypoints? I did see another thread about Swagbucks and it seems people were pretty unhappy with the changes, because the points are not worth as much as they were in the past. I am now a bit leary of signing up with them because of those complaints.

Yes I posted that thread because I wanted to see what other members thought of the new changes, and like you said many people appeared to be unhappy with the changes, but some also said that they still like the site, I dont like the changes either but I still like the site because you dont need referrals or a lot of offers to redeem prizes, and most of the gift cards are still reasonable I have earned enough points to get 3 amazon gift cards already, and it takes much longer to earn enough points in mypoints I know because I'm a member of my points too. Here's an example of how many points you'll need to get Amazon gift card on swagbucks 250 SB for $5 dollar amazon gift card, and 3,150 SB for $25 dollar amazon gift card and for the record you can earn SB much faster still in swagbucks then mypoints with no offers. swagbucks has offers but you dont need them to earn points. Here's an example of how many points you need in mypoints to get a amazon gift card you need 3,850 and 7,400 with lots of offers, VS swagbucks points with optional offers. like I said you dont have to do the offers to earn digital dollars in swagbucks so its your call 250 with swagbucks or 3,850 with mypointsI like mypoints too, but swagbucks is still faster.

Ah, ok. So they are still better than Mypoints even with the changes. You've got yourself a referral.

im so glad you said mypoints. ive been paid by them 2 times already. would probably make more but put more time in here and on pogo then i should anyway, right now im waiting on payment from inbox dollars but havent gotten it yet. it says 6 to eight weeks and its only been 3 so we will see. ive gotten some great points and some samples from Synovate, but just started 5 mths ago so not sure how well it will do. im working on a game site called Winster. dont know if you've tried it. it seems to pay in points also. ive gotten "paid" 2,000 points to my mypoints account by them already once and am working toward a 25 buck gift card for a restraunt. but like i said, i dont spend enough time there. you might ask oriocookie here. she has some that pay.
