Birthday Points

I received a Birthday E-Mail from Mypoints with a 5 point gift (and a special offer on magazines). How Sweet.......

Wow, a whole 5 points!? If you did nothing else, you'd have to wait 100 years to have enough to claim a five dollar award. You would think that they would give you 100 points.... but I guess that would add up to a lot of value on thier books at the end of each quarter.

Oh well,

Actually, as it happens, it seems you can change your birthday and keep getting more points, although I personally don't think the 5 points is worth the risk. I had set mine to Jan 1st and got my points then, and then switched it to my real birthdate and got the points once more. I'm not going to bother with trying to game the system, but FWIW it seems it is technically possible.
