Reader Tip: Earn gift cards by clicking on emails!

While you might not be able to earn a gift card in time for Christmas, Katherine emailed in this simple way you can earn a few gift cards every year:

I use My Points to earn points towards gift cards by clicking on emails. My Points sends a few emails each day, which each get you 5 points for clicking through.

I have mine auto-directed into folders in my email and take about 5 minutes to click through them once a week or so. I have been a member of My Points for 6 years and I have earned several $10-$25 gift cards each year. Definitely worth the time investment for me! -Katherine

    Be careful with reward port. I have redeamed for 2 gift cards. The first time I had to email multiple times to get my reward. This time, customer service will not return my inquiries about the reward. My Points is great. I have used them for the last 10 years. Never had an issue getting rewards.

    • Emily says:

      I’m having the same problem with getting my reward. I cashed out for a $10 Amazon gift card back in May and I still haven’t received it and I’ve contacted them numerous time without a response.

  • joanna says:

    i’ve been using mypoints the same way as katherine, & i’m quite happy w/ the results! however, i am curious how to have certain emails auto-directed into folders; sounds like a lovely idea if i knew how to set it up! any help out there?

    • Debbie says:

      Joanna, it depends on what email client you use. Check under options and look for “filters.” There should be a way to “filter” incoming mail into appropriate folders.

  • Mary H says:

    I have also used My Points and been very happy with them. Never had any kind of problem with getting the gift cards I’ve cashed out for. The only caution I would give people is that some of the smaller $$ amount gift cards are a little scare during the holidays because so many people are cashing out and using the as gifts. it just takes a little planning ahead to get the exact rewards you want.

    I would highly recommend My Points.

  • KarenJ says:

    So relieved that it is just not me that is having this current problem with Reward Port. I’ve been using them a few years too. It has just been this year that I did not get a gift card redemption that I submitted. I have e-mailed them twice and have gotten no response at all. Does anyone know what is up with the company? I’m still gathering points, but my last redemption was a big one with no result, so I am wondering if I am wasting my time by continuing on.

  • Emily says:

    I just looked around for reviews on Reward Port and it appears that lots of people are having problems not receiving their rewards. They have an F rating at Better Business Bureau. I have not received my reward from almost 6 months ago. I would not recommend them. Mypoints is GREAT, though! I just cashed out for a $25 Gap gift card (which can be used at Old Navy).

    I was with Rewardport for about a year and I finally had enough points to get a $25 walmart giftcard so I submited my information for it and never received it so I canceled my account. I feel that it’s a waste of time. My Points is great,I always receive my rewards!

  • Linda Shifflett says:

    My Points is fantastic – however I am having trouble with Reward Ports also. I requested a $25 gift card in January 2012 and I have contacted them several times and they will not respond to any of my inquiries. Very poor customer service. I am no longer doing anything with them – since it is appartently a complete waste of time. They are making money for what you do but they are not paying us responsibly.

  • Jimalee Jackson says:

    I love MyPoints! I have been using them for years and I always save my points all year to cash in before Christmas. I just cashed in a $25 gift card to Olive Garden today to use as a gift for a hard-to-buy for couple! If you’re not using MyPoints you are missing out 🙂

  • JoannaTopazT says:

    I have a MyPoints account, but when I click through the emails, I don’t get credited with any points. Anybody have a clue what I’m doing wrong?

    • Alicia says:

      Do you mean you’re not getting credited right away? Cause they don’t tend to credit you right away, it sometimes takes a day or two for the points to show up. If you’re having problems I’d suggest emailing them, they’re pretty nice and helpful.

  • Jennifer says:

    Please please please take down the part about rewardport. I requested a $25 amazon gift card in January, it is not October and I still have not received it. I have sent them many emails and have never gotten a response email. I would hate for any readers to get jipped by them.
