Red face Shamrock

Today it is in surveys. You cannot reach it via a search. It is on the top bar in yellow next to "easy points".

Anybody else remember how Mypoints claimed when they were cancelling Gold member program it was so they could focus on generous promos like the pumpkins, and now shamrocks? Well I am yet to win even 5 points, and the 10,000 points to the winner doesn't seem like an overwhelmingly generous offer either. How about some real Gold Mypoints?

I don't think they know what they want to do with the programme anymore. Clearly, no one is redeeming for gift cards, which is why they are offering all of these bonuses to purchase gift cards. They've also ratcheted up the price of UA miles by 2000 in a year. Now, with the introduction of "cash back" next to the point price, it seems like a fundamental change is in play. I think it will eventually turn into a cash rebate programme because of the reduced costs. 2014 will be an interesting year for sure.

The gift cards are largely terrible values. I get better value from Thank You points than I do w/ MyPoints. YMMV.

Everyone should see the Shamrock, usually on the upper right side just below the top bar, and the alphabetical index list letters P - Z you should see a "Congratulations you found the four leaf clover" and then a little button to click to see if you win. Today I won 10 points!

Thanks everyone for posting the locations
