Gather Points

Hi! :) I'm new to Gather. I really like it. The people are really friendly and I like all the comments I get for my articles and pictures. But I don't understand everything. I have 30 Gather Points right now. What can I do with them? What are they for? How do I make money on Gather? Anything you can share with me to help me will be appreciated! Thanks :)

Hi there! You save up your points, and then cash them in for gift cards from various stores, and various amounts. Or, if you are on there all the time, and post a lot, getting 3,000 points every month, you can get the cash option. I have been a memeber of Gaher since Dec., but forgot about it and didn't use it again until April. From April until now I have gotten a 50 dollar home depot card, two fifty dollar Border's cards, and then two twenty dollar Border's cards for winning a contest! Plus I still have enough points for two more fifty dollar gift cards. They have contests and promotions every once in awhile, and then you can boost your points. If you have any other questions, pm me, and I will try to help you!

I kind of gave up with Gather and focus most of my attention with Associated Content...When you earn enough points, usually over 500 points you can start getting gift certificates, but most certificates you need well over 1,000 points..you can get cash, but you need at least 3,000 to earn $50 cash...I'm only over 300 points myself...Like I said I focus more of my time with AC

First, most people on Gather get gift cards for their points. There is a cash level but it is hard to reach and you have to be invited into the level by mgt. The best way to earn points is to be ACTIVE! And the best activities are to read and comment on other people's articles and photos. Also post some articles and photos of your own. But you control your points more by commenting on other people.

I agree commenting on others stuff works the best for getting more points. That is the main way I got enough points to get the cash option. Now with the cash option I notice I see it increase the most when I am actively commenting on others stuff often. I especially like looking at and commenting on photos.

I didn't know commenting on other peoples stuff was the best way to get points! That's good to know, thank you :) I like commenting on pictures a lot too! =) So I should be able to earn good points!
