Are you using a VPN? If so, stop it.

Has anyone done the Glilette deal of 6500 points for $7? That seems too good to be true.

No, I don't have a VPN. I will keep trying and cash out. Thanks for the tip though.

I do believe it's like the U$5 Dollar Shave Club offer (also available from MyP), but for a P&G (Gillette's owners) sponsored club of their own (Dollar and Dorco have been "shaving P&G's profits" lately).

So, as long as you CANCEL ON TIME (this is a very large company, so don't worry more than usual) you should get some MyP "on the cheap".

PS: Wonder when Edgewell (the Schick, Wilkinson Sword and Edge owners) will come with their own club?

Spend $7 & Earn 6,500 Points!

$3 Off First Order! Make your first purchase of Gillette on Demand for only $7 and earn 6,500 Points!

Disclaimer: *Please allow up to 32 days for your Points to be credited to your account. Offer may only be redeemed (1) one time per user.

ETA: I decided to sign up and chose 6 months for next shipment--to give me plenty of time to fight for the points if I needed to. Within minutes the 6500 points appeared in my account with a 30-day hold. Definitely one of--if not the--best $ to points offers.

Has anyone else noticed a change to the "Daily 5" as of November 1st. They changed the available options to earn your five bonus points basically making it impossible to earn the bonus unless you watch a video and complete a survey. Some of the button links also result in an error message.

I noticed that too, now all I can do for points are click through emails and the occasional Best Buy purchase. I can't answer surveys because when they changed to want legit answers, they said mine were too scattered (I would just pick randomly to get the survey done as quickly as possible) and I have to call in to be allowed to answer more surveys.

Yeah, it really stinks now. I probably won't bother with Monthly Goals for November, as that requires a minimum of four "Daily 5" completions during the month. Hopefully, they will at least fix the non-functioning (non-crediting) links in the Daily 5.

Yeah, I always set my "Daily 5" goal to 25 as I did them every day and got 35 bonus points just for that. Certainly won't get anywhere close to that this month. Though I was able to get the Daily 5 yesterday somehow as one of the other links worked and only had to answer the 10 quick surveys under "Your Survey Profile" to qualify for a survey.

I think the problem is that they have a Daily 5 item of "Eearn Points from Discover". But it isn't for Discover card. There was always a Daily 5 that was merchant specific and I think this one is supposed to be it, but it just goes to a MyPoints page.

It looks like, as it is with Swagbucks, running a round of 'Laptop Guy' videos when he shows up under Sponsored Videos checks off the 'Discover' task for the Daily 5.

I've noticed the change as well to MP. I also was looked out of doing surveys as I answered a some of their "for classification" questions in error a couple of times. It took me about 4 months to be in MP jail, and then I contacted them a few times on it in order to allow me to participate in surveys. I refuse to do nCrave, as I do not want to allow pop ups on my computer, and find them useless.

Another change as of the first of the month is the decrease in nCrave points from three to two for most videos. Most sets now start with a six point set, then a five point set and then two for all the rest. I tend to run them for days at a time, or until the computer locks up and I really notice this devaluation. I still manage 5000 United miles a month thanks to any completed surveys.
It will be interesting to see what other changes might be in store...

Of course, they want legitimate answers for the surveys.

Has anyone else had problems with points posting today? For the last hour or so I get no points for either nCrave or Sponsored videos. Hopefully this will be soon corrected.
