Legit Way to Get $20 in Gift Cards of Your Choice Each Year

I just redeemed my account balance at for a $10 gasoline card. I've been a member of for roughly 4 or more years and have obtained $110+ in gift cards over this time (red lobster, starbucks, Exxon Mobil, etc).

What did I have to do? I provide them w/ an email account and they send email advertisements to my account. I read the advertisements and get 5-10 points for just reading them and 200-1000+ points for participating in particular sales promotions.

I've never had a problem with the site and would recommend it to others. If you want, send me an email and i'll do a referral. has a current promotion where people referred by friends get 125 free points for their account while the person providing the referral gets 100 points.

Since becoming a member of the mypoints community, i've only participated in one promotion (getting a account). All the other points that i've obtained (16,900) have been via their email advertisements.

While I say you can get $20 in gift cards/year, there are others out there who could get over $100 per year based on shopping patterns. This combined with the use of rebate credit cards can provide you a way to double-dip on refunds/kick-backs.

To get the referral, please provide your first and last name in an email to me.

You'll then get an email from stating that a friend has referred you.

Additionally, I never really had to read the advertisements.

I essentially only had to click a button, let it upload then immediately delete it (still get credit for reading, even if the advertisement has been uploaded completely for a second).
