I am using Mypoints and can start cashing in for gift cards to different places at 480 points for PayPal . I started participating in the monthly goals for extra points. Very easy to earn point . I don't rewarder any money I am new member I hope to win . The original postal was not in any way far from the truth, no doubt it very easy to earn from surveys as it involves filling of opinions, however the basic challenges most of us face is the issue of geographical location and this has also played out in mypoint, despite it legimaticy it is only for US residents Mypoints is one of my favorites for surveys. I have never had a problem with payout. Their surveys are not to bad. Usually quick and easy. I have earned 50.00 two 25.00 amazon cards. It works for me. Its a legit one for sure.
Good job. I use a few more for giftcards as well. Mypoints paid for one part of my new air conditioner with a $25.00 walmart giftcard. totally legit

I have used MyPoints for 10 years! I love this site. Easy to earn points. Large variety of ways to earn. Reading emails, search the web, coupons, surveys. With emails, you just click an email and verify you read it. One of the easiest way to earn. They also have daily tasks. You do 5 different tasks and if you finish those you will get bonus points. Surveys are same as any other site. You can make purchases though the website to get points back, like the cash back system. Lots of gift cards to choose from! This is one of my favorite sites!

:unsure::geek:After some time of you going here registering there - you learn which sites works best for you. In my case - I've found few that brings me averg. 10-15$CAN., However I also liked mypoints but my experience with it was: 2 accounts one created after another had been banned. In both cases I did nothing wrong(I'm pretty sure, except running VPNs but not on their website but with my modem for the other things at all, that I needed it) so... Each of these 2times I ended up saving(I normally wait 3-6months for more noticeable pay out) after about 14k(14.000(1st time)& 11.000(2nd account)) points , on both times - I had gotten email saying that my account (s) had been banned:poop: due to providing NOT correct information- which was b/s. Just stating my experience with them...even though one of very few survey website I actually liked. It happened somewhere around end2016 - through out 2017

First you cant have more than one account
Second you cant use VPNs on any site I dont believe
Thirdly you must always provide actual information on sites
My friend, as I said I created 2nd account after first got banned(about month after)
I dId nothing wrong, I provided proper info. As I remember, the first account ban - their problem was that my modem showed them that I'm in Montreal, but I provided info that I'm in Toronto (which was true, but at that time I didn't even know that modem I got from my fr. was pre-set for Montreal)
2nd account: their issue was I stated just in some surveys,not all, that my gender was female(I'm male, heh) as well as some different settings about my salary e.t.ç. I don't remember exactly whatelse, I did it just to see if I get another set of surveys offered, that are set for certain demographics.
Both cases I don't think i did Soo wrong or something at all to get my 14k points banned as well as my whole account.
The VPN I mentioned I use for something else, I don't even know why I mentioned it here lol, as trust me I know exactly what and how works and I assure you I did NOt use VPN in/on mypoints web. I use it for something else, if someone hasn't tried but want to know, feel free to pm me, I will provide few sites(Canadian tho) where changing demographic options will get you to complete same surveys several more times, especially if someone knows what he's doing- couple Ctrl++(keys) and you are done in seconds (survey pay out times the number of demographic sets you did)without having complete survey more times(if u follow wut I'm saying) but I decline to post it public (at least not under this account) so I won't get banned there. Because of my preference of saving for few months there is quite a penny there on each of the acc.
However thanks for your input
as I mentioned, I liked mypoints, and very very few survey sites I can say so about. But just not in my case, because few times you enter a bit different info that you gave when you had registered (ur age,salary e.t.c) and you banned with ur points gone out the window :(

I was similing when I read that there is so many way to earn in this site and have considered myself to join, but not when I saw that it's only available in US and Canada. If you guys know any site that is something like MyPoints and works worldwide that you would recommend to me.
There are lots mentioned on this forum, you probably don't need it as hard otherwise you would have read about it. For example: prolific - payout British $(my favorite cuz 1pnd-2CAD heh, and all surveys/tests are academic related. Money market - payout euro$) rest look around on this forum...help the guys out by using it,do sum clickz. There are 6 more I know and read about here and I haven't read even a small part of all articles they have. I'll be willing to bet there are even more, plus a good narrative of its users be

As far as I’m concerned, the internet is a new frontier for money-making. When more and more people and businesses starting adapting to the internet, it opened up a wealth of opportunity for us to earn.

There are ways to make money online that don’t involve a whole lot of work or skill. These sites are called survey sites, and as their name implies, they involve you filling out surveys in exchange for points. You can then redeem these points for cash and gift rewards.

It’s a pretty sweet set-up, and survey site doesn’t even describe everything you do on the site. These sites usually involve other tasks such as watching videos, taking offers, and downloading apps. This is why they’re also called GPT (“Get paid to…”) sites.

Survey sites are my main way of earning online, which is why I’m always looking for new sites to try out. A friend of mine mentioned that I should try MyPoints. She had a pretty good experience on the site, and thought I should give it a try, too.

Since I trust my friend’s opinion, I signed up for MyPoints a few months ago. Was my experience as good as hers? I’ll answer those questions (and then some) in this thorough review.

An introduction to MyPoints

MyPoints has been around since 1996. Yup, it’s been around for that long. As far as internet time goes, 1996 is like the age of the dinosaurs. That isn’t to say MyPoints hasn’t evolved. On the contrary, they’ve managed to stay current by adapting to new trends in the rewards space.

I felt confident signing up because the site has been around for so long. It reassured me that this wasn’t some shady fly by night website out to scam me.

Memberships are open to residents of the United States and Canada. You won’t have to pay any registration fee (something you should look for in most legit survey sites). I knew people from other countries who signed up anyways. They managed to get in, but they weren’t qualified to try all tasks and surveys. If you’re from outside the US and Canada, it won’t hurt to try.

How to Earn

Completing tasks (which I’ll discuss in greater detail in a bit) earns you points. You can start doing tasks as soon as you register - there’s no waiting period.

These points can be redeemed as gift cards, airline miles, or cash.

MyPoints Tasks

The site has a pretty wide range of stuff for you to do to earn points. One of the things I look for in a good survey site is a large variety of tasks. It can sometimes get boring filling out an endless succession of surveys, so it’s good that MyPoints has different ways for you to break the monotony.

These tasks include:

Reading emails - After registering you will start receiving BonusMail in your inbox. Opening these emails earns you points.

Using the site’s search engine - MyPoints has a Yahoo-based search function. Use it for the chance to get random points.

Playing games - The site has a few games that you can play for points.

Watching videos - MyPoints has video “playlists” that give points after you’ve watched them.

Printing coupons - This is one of my favorite features on the site. I can print out coupons and actually use them for various stores.

Availing of deals - You can earn points by shopping on Groupon and LivingSocial.

Shopping online - The site has over 1,900 partner retailers. Shopping from any of these stores will earn you points. It’s a sweet deal because there’s a big chance you already shop in one of these 1,900 stores even without rewards!

Filling out surveys - This task is why survey sites are called just that. Companies hire MyPoints to help conduct market research. That’s why you fill out surveys. It’s actually a pretty cool feeling knowing that my input has a direct influence in the decisions these big businesses make.

Earning Potential and Payout Options

700 points are equivalent to $5. It is also the minimum amount you must have to request a payout. You can request cash, either via PayPal deposit or a direct deposit to your Visa prepaid card. If cash isn’t your thing, you can even trade your points for gift cards for over 70 shops and establishments, or travel miles via your United MileagePlus account.

One of the unique features of the site is that it actually has a shop within it! And just like everything else MyPoints does, you can also earn by shopping here. Simply upload your receipt to the site to collect your points.

Overall, the earning potential varies greatly based on the amount of tasks available, and the time you have to complete them. But if you put the time in, your earnings will quickly add up!

MyPoints Surveys

Survey will be your bread and butter on this site. During your sign up, you’ll have to provide certain details like your location. This is to ensure that the relevant surveys are sent to you. This is why there are times when no surveys are available to you. There simply isn’t one that suits your profile.

The points per survey varies based on length and complexity, but the maximum pay per survey is $6. And the best part of this is that you can use your points as soon as you complete the survey! Other sites make you wait weeks to use your points, so this is really good.

What I Like About MyPoints
  • Survey payments are immediate (Take note that other payments make take up to 90 days, though)
  • Lots of ways to earn. You’ll never get bored on this site.
  • You can earn points just by using the Score, MyPoints’ proprietary shopping browser extension.
  • The site is clean, easy to navigate, and contains all the info you’ll need.
What I Don’t like About MyPoints
  • It’s only open for residents of the US and Canada. C’mon guys, it’s 2018.
  • There are times when I found out I wasn’t eligible to take a survey after filling out some questions. At least they gave me half a point for every ten questions I had already completed.
  • I’ve also received the same survey a couple of times.
  • A high minimum payout.
  • Value conversion is not consistent for gift cards. Some cards will be worth more points than another gift card with the same value. I don’t like it, but I can sort of understand this, since some gift cards will be more desirable than others.
  • MyPoints was acquired by Swagbucks, and some users have been mentioning that the overall has declined since the acquisition. Personally, I can’t tell the difference, and my only real negative experience on MyPoints was not being allowed to complete a survey after I’ve started.
The Verdict: Legit or Scam?

MyPoints is legit! You’ll have to spend a lot of time doing tasks to earn money, which is why I suggest you do this in your free time.

Not being able to complete a survey sucks, but it’s a relatively minor complaint in an overall positive experience.

Your Turn

This review is based on my own experiences using MyPoints. Now it’s your turn to share! Have you tried MyPoints? What was your overall experience like, and how much have you earned?

Let’s hear your stories!
I just started mypoints early this month, and I can say it's a great site for earning gift cards. It's one of the easy sites to earn money in no time. I used surveys, videos, and perk codes to earn most of my points. You can check their social media page for the perk codes. They stop sending me surveys for being inconsistent, so be careful with that. Besides that I managed to earn 25 dollars in PayPal and currently have three dollars worth of point this month. My earnings were sent within 4 days. It's not a scam and a legit site.

My personal short take on MyPoints for taking surveys and others tasks to earn - it’s legit (as others on this thread have vouched for).

Now for my longer take on it in bullets:
  • Overall ‘meh’ success rate on surveys - I didn’t always get disqualified on surveys, which is a pretty decent criterion on its own. I don’t like my time and effort wasted especially when it comes to being right in the middle or almost at the end of a survey. That is not to say I always qualify for them, so there’s still something of a vexing experience in that regard.
  • There are consolation points for the first five disqualifications - Again, I will look at this as both a blessing and a curse. On one hand, it’s good to get five points for the first five times I’ve gotten disqualified. On the other hand - if the site is willing to shell out these points to users, it must mean there’s a big possibility of disqualification in the first place.
  • It might be better to go for the GCs than waiting to cash out - This is difficult advice coming from someone who loves getting his reward as cold hard cash. But MyPoints makes it hard for me to earn towards a PayPal cashout with the little surveys I actually complete. At around $25 for a minimum withdrawal, I didn’t see myself earning enough to get to it ASAP. So I opted for the next best thing, which came in the form of $5 gift cards that are roughly the equivalent of 700 points each.

Thanks for the MyPoints review, op. To make the most of the rewards site experience, I think one of the most important things to do is use several sites at once. That’s because you won’t always qualify for surveys on a rewards site. When that happens you can always switch to the next site to look for anything you qualify for, then the next site, and so forth.

MyPoints is one of the sites I keep in circulation. The overall experience is pretty good. I make a couple of bucks a month, but I know I could be making more if I wanted to. It’s just that I sometimes get bored with rewards sites, so I would try other work from home side hustles. But MyPoints is one of the rewards sites I like to use.

What I love about MyPoints is that it has lots of ways to earn – more than a few other rewards sites, actually. So whenever I want to try a different earning method than, say, answering surveys, I can always look for other ways to earn. If I’m feeling brain-dead after a long day at work, opening emails and watching videos are great ways to earn without having to exert too much effort.
