Those of us who use MyPoints (hit me up for a referral!!!!) on a regular basis will be pleased to note that this year they have introduced something new as a way to encourage users to use the site. It is called ‘My Shopping Tally‘ and it lets you get a $20 gift card bonus if you make 10 purchases from the site until December 31st this year. This means you can get extra points because not only do you earn points from making purchases but then each of those purchases brings you one step closer to that bonus.
Here is how it works:
You want to buy something online….say a bottle of lotion from Walmart.com. You go into your MyPoints account and click on the shopping tab from there and then select Walmart.com. You then make your purchase as normal from Walmart.com but since you got to Walmart via MyPoints you earn 1 point per dollar spent (current Walmart rate) AND you earn one entry into the 10 for $20 system.
I have already made two purchases for the year by just remembering to log in to my MyPoints account FIRST and then going to the site I want and I just wanted to share that with you all. Remember you can also earn points by answering surveys and reading emails, which you can then redeem for gift cards for a LARGE selection of places so go ahead and check out your MyPoints now.
