True - but can be a way to keep accounts active. I've been redeeming for a $5 amazon GC about every 20-25 days for the past year plus, quicker if they offer 30 point days.

You can rack up a lot of points quickly when you start as they give points for clicking through a lot of info about the program. Once you are through that it is 1 pt per 2 searches up to 15 pts/day. Plus you can get an additional 10 pts by doing 20 searches on a moblie device (also 1pt/2 searches). There will also be at least one, but sometimes up to 4 special links of the day to click on to get a point each.

Occasionally they will do days where the max is 30 pts per day for searches - they recently did this on a few Mondays in April.
