The last couple of months you could get 250 points for searching. It's back to 100 points this month. Bummer. tls

I watched a bunch of videos today, and when I went to my account, I saw this message:

"MyPoints Video watchers: As of 10/13/15, Video Points will be processed in aggregate and posted to your account statement the following day. The Point award for videos watched today will be reflected in your account statement tomorrow."

So I'll know tomorrow how many videos I watched. I wonder why they made this change? tls

If they're going to mess with the video section, could they at least add a little more non-Kardashian content to the Celebrity section? I've been running those every day since they're more likely to be short but hate that my clicks are giving someone out there the impressions that I really want more Kardashian content.

Not horrible but the 13K points for , IIRC, $10 offer last month was better.

The day after MyPoints said video's watched points would be posted the next day, I received no points for the day before. My efforts will be in vein if I can't figure out what I am doing wrong. Has this been happening to anyone and does anyone have a solution?

My videos did post the next day (which is today). I didn't keep track of how many videos I watched, so I don't know if it's the right amount, but it seems to be in the right ballpark. tls

When does the clock reset? I thought it was 12 pacific time but no video point have been awarded. They must have moved the time when they award point but the cut off time to earn points is still midnight.

Did they just raise the points needed for 2,500 United miles? I checked a week or so ago when my points were still pending and I thought I had enough, but today it says 6900 points.

Yep, it was 6100 on Saturday when I redeemed and they did a big jump there.

My Points & Gift Cards

Hello,
I am interested in purchasing gift cards for the first time at MyPoints.com, for the upcoming holidays to give as gifts, but also want to maximize on obtaining the most points.

For those of you whom are veterans purchasing gift cards through My Points, what do you see is the best redemption in points.

I am interested in purchasing

-Regal Movie Gift Card

-Chili's Gift Card

-Apple Bee's Gift Card

- Bath & Body Works Gift Card

There is currently a promotion Give Thanks to earn extra bonus points for purchase of gift cards. Do you consider this a good time to purchase gift cards to obtain most points OR Will these be around promotion closer to the holidays that has occurred in years past?

Thank you in advance for your feedback.

-Sandra
