Uh oh.

I hope we're not possibly interpreting this wrong?

Where did you see this on the MyPoints site. I wonder if the membership levels is what the 'alert' from earlier this year was about:

Did anyone else get this? Have you received the email yet?

Ok, now I am thoroughly confused. Despite my last image post, this post shows "150 Points Per Dollar" like how other offers show how many MyPoints are offered per dollar:

I'm pretty sure we're not. Notice in that language you posted Mypoints capitalizes Mypoints "Points" but not OpenSky "points." Then see that "Points"is capitalized in all other portions of the T&Cs, even where grammar would not call for it.

MyPoints [Master Thread]--NEW

It wasn't a link it was in an additional email. Guys I'm not making this up I did receive a new email with a revised 7,500 my point max. I don't know if they are going to honor the previous $500 spend, but I see on boardingarea posts blowing up about $500 / free stuff/ etc.

Don't get burned ... But I feel like people are going to. I've previously had a bad experience with opensky when they had a "buy anything receive 4,000 my point bonus", then they changed spend minimum to $50- and my 4k points were never awarded.

Upon receiving the first email I had to go go back and forth with myself - do I do it- do I not- I decided to not. & now I received the new email. Like I said be careful, imho

I also got the initial 150 points/dollar offer in an email, but I have never received another stating a lower offer.

Do you have any frenemies that might think it fun to pull a prank on you?

I will post the email here and No, nobody would do that as a joke lol. I did check mypoints again. So weird. I give it a 2% chance I accidentally ready 7,500 instead of 75,000 brb

In three years, I have collected almost $1100 in gift cards with enough points for another $200. New appliances for my kitchen with no $$ out-of-pocket.

BTW, I have occassionally attempted a MyPoints survey, not qualified, and not gotten my 10 points. An e-mail to customer service with the survey info and survey number has always gotten me a prompt apology and points in my account. Of all of the similar programs that I have participated in, the customer service at MyPoints is by far the best.
