360 EASY MyPoints

Today when I went to check out the site I found two new links there.

1) under visit websites:
Click on icollector - 10 points for visiting and 100 points for joining (giving them your e-mail address. Blue screen and all so the points are more likely going to post.

2) under try it out:
Click on HDVest financial services, register and then you get 250 points -- with a blue screen.

Just figured that I would post with a heads up in case not everyone has checked or noticed these yet.

P.S. -- I know that some of MyPoints point opportunities are targeted so these might not be there for everybody -- I thought it might be worth a try.

Thanks for the heads up. I personally check
the "visit website" everyday but not the "try it out". Would've missed that one.

HDVest also offers an addition 500 points if you complete your tax return on line. There is no fee and you don't have to submit it, just have their software calculate it. Of course I didn't use my real SSnumber!

If you decide to fill in the HDVest tax stuff to get the extra 500 points, be prepared to spend a lot of time (even if you are putting in minimal dummy data). It makes you go through most of the 1040 form and the pages take forever to load... I should of done this at work with a high speed connection, but once I got started, I was on a roll.

Of course, there was no confirmation at the end that I would receive the 500 points.. I wonder if this was all just a waste of time. Has anybody else done this and get a confirmation of the 500 points?

It worked for me and I got the 500 point blue screen on saturday. It was pretty slow.

I filled out the form on Friday afternoon and 500 mysterious points posted today. I assume it was for filling out the form. I'm still waiting to get the intial 250 points for registering. Will they ever really get their act together?????

I got my 250 points the day after I registered. Maybe you should check with MyPoints for that.

I went through the tax form for the 500 points, and it was very quick. You don't really have to do much except click on "save and continue" about 20 times. No dummy data is needed. At the end, just after you say "No" to e-filing, you see the link for the 500 points.

I went to MyPoints to link to icollector at https://register.icollector.com/mp_promo_full.html
and got a form to join but I had to provide my CC number, I don't like these kind of promos. However the link provided by UserMark https://register.icollector.com/mp_promo_quick.html
does not require much info (name and e-mail) but only gives 100 pts rather than 180. I chose the quick one.
