Yeah, I'm just talking about the 5 points for clicking "continue" then I close the other window.

I've done mypoints for a very long time, way before I started swagbucks, and I've NEVER been able to earn that kind of rewards wtih them.

Swagbucks IS way better than Mypoints, and it adds up much faster. I usually win a search or two each day, plus the points for the daily polls and NOSO. I also get some of the Swagcodes. But I don't really spend time of surveys or tasks. It does add up fast.

I guess I just read more into the "success" stories I read. You know, the ones where the person earns enough to buy all of their groceries or clothes by doing that. You just clued me in to something I didn't think of. I was tageting a number for the larger gift card. I never thought to see if you got more for less by redeeming multiple smaller ones.

OK, another question. You can redeem points for egift cards. Are those only usable on the website? Like KMart. You can get an ecard, do I have to use the KMart website to redeem or do I get something I can actually use at the store?

Yes, the very best deal on swagbucks is the $5 amazon gift cards. It is weird because if you try to get a $50 amazon gift card for example, it costs MORE than 10X as much as the $5 one. So most of the pros on swagbucks always get their 5-$5 gift cards first each month. Most people if they earn a ton will only then get other gift cards. When I had lots of referrals I would get my 5 then get something else, but now I'm lucky to just get my 5 each month.

I certainly don't earn enough to buy all my groceries with, but I have earned $300 in amazon credit each year which I save for Christmas shopping. That goes a long way!!

Don't know about kmart in particular but I did get a starbucks one and it was good in the store. I am almost sure it would be. I think they're all also good at the store since they do send you a physical card for almost everything except for amazon (& maybe a few other online retailers).

Cool. I saw today that they just added Walmart.

I didn't realize that any if the gift cards were actual ones. I may have to save up for a few fir gifts then. I didn't want someone to know I got them through them and with points earned.

I think I am going to have to start attempting more surveys and look for more videos to get points fast.

Is mypoint really working? I have not tried it yet. Gotta try.

I use MyPoints. I also use those links to print out coupons to get more points. It takes a while, but I do like the options they have for giftcards.
