Does MyPoints follow through?

I feel like I’m late getting in on the game, but a few weeks ago I signed up for an account with MyPoints. There was a bonus points offer coupon in my handy dandy Entertainment Book, and I was intrigued.

I’m now up to about 1,100 points, with a few hundred more pending.

I bet some of you out there have accounts with MyPoints, too and I’m wondering: Do you receive credits for everything you’re entitled to? Do they send you gift cards in a timely manner?

I’m looking forward to getting CVS gift cards or cards for restaurants or things like that, but I don’t want to be let down if it falls through.

Edit: Well, If I just looked at my blog reader before I wrote this, I would have seen Paid Twice’s article on how awesome My Points is!

  1. Yes, yes, yes!! I’ve been a member I think since ’98 or so and have earned 78,000 points since then! I usually get the Starbucks card to pay for my expensive habit there. We’ve also used it for gas cards for my teenage nephew. I’m thinking about using it for CVS cards to pay for any oop I may have in my deals.
    I usually get my card in a week or two.
    We ended up signing up for the credit card, put big purchases that we have the cash for anyway and pay it off every month.

  2. I love Mypoints & have been a member for over 5 years.

  3. I just read the Paid Twice article in my blog reader too but I figured I’d respond anyway. :)

    I love mypoints. I’ve been a member since last summer and I’ve earned a $25 and a $10 giftcard. I’m also only a few hundred points away from another $25. I don’t do many offers, only the click-throughs, so it takes me awhile. But everytime I’ve requested a card, it’s taken no more than 4 days to reach me! I think mypoints is pretty awesome. I hope you have good luck with it!

  4. Oh, tell me how you managed to get so many points in so short a time! How much of it was the bonus? I’ve racked up 425 in email click-throughs in 3 months, but I don’t want or need to sign up or purchase anything they are offering. Except Netflix – I was planning on getting a subscription anyway when we cancelled our cable (its cheaper and I like movies better than TV :) but they haven’t credited my points yet. At this rate, its going to take me 2 years to have enough points to redeem! I was getting discouraged, so I’m glad you wrote this.

  5. I just signed up too. But I only have like 150 points. I havent quite figured out all of these GPT sites (thats what this is right?) so if you have any tips for me, please let me know!

  6. I love mypoints as well I have been with them for 6 years. You can download their toolbar and earn free points as well. Make sure any purchases that you make online to check and see if they are a mypoints merchant to get your points per dollar. They even do ebay which I love. I have about 10,000 points right now I love to save them through out the year and I use them for my kids Christmas.

  7. Mypoints has closed my account for no reason after 4 years. I did not even get a notice. I guess because I had saved up enough points for a 50.00 gift card I planned to use for my son’s birthday coming up in March. I now have to pay for all that I ordered through them, they get paid and I get dumped for no reason. And there is NOTHING I can do about it! No address, No phone, NO THANKS. I won’t trust any of these scammers anymore! I will be posting what they did every chance I get to warn others.
