Just Got $35 In Olive Garden / Red Lobster Gift Cards. You Can Also Get Gift Cards To Many Popular Businesses Through This

I just redeemed my reward points at Mypoints.com for $35 in gift cards to Darden Restaurants. Darden Restaurants includes Olive Garden & Red Lobster.

You accumulate reward points with Mypoints.com simply by doing one of several things:
(1.) Open advertisements received at your email account from Mypoints.
(2.) Take surveys from Mypoints
(3.) Shop online via Mypoints
(4.) Use a Mypoints credit card

I've been a member for several years and have accumulated $178 worth of gift cards from Mypoints by almost exclusively doing #1 above (receive email advertisements). Receiving and opening the Mypoints advertisements are easy. You don't even have to read the advertisements that you open to get credit.

On occasion I have shopped via Mypoints and have earned about 2 or 3 points for every dollar spent on one of many popular national chains advertising via Mypoints.com.

I'd love to refer any of my readers to Mypoints. People that I refer automatically get 250 points added to their account (I also get 250 points for doing a referral). To put 250 points into perspective, I cashed in the following point totals today:

- 1400 points for a $10 Red Lobster / Olive Garden gift card
- 3400 points for a $25 Red Lobster / Olive Garden gift card

Once a member, you typically qualify for about 25 points a day in email advertisements, 60-120 points a week in possible surveys and unlimited points in shopping with the Mypoints credit card or online through companies that adverstise with Mypoints.

There are tons of other options for gift cards (i.e. Wal-Mart, Shell Gas, Old Navy, Circuit City, etc.).
