$35 From Swagbucks And MyPoints For IMVU Sign-Up

I love offers that ask you to make a purchase, and then pay you more in rewards than they actually cost to sign up.

I love those offers even more if they show up on multiple sites, as is the case with IMVU (which seems to be some sort of social networking platform). You can net up to $35 by making what looks to be a one-time purchase at Swagbucks and MyPoints.

$20 From Swagbucks


You, too, can be a cool avatar.

Swagbucks may be my favorite pay to search/click/shop/whatever site. When you search through their search engine, they’ll randomly give you points. You can also earn points by shopping, taking surveys, etc. Points are worth a penny each.

The IMVU offer pays you 3,000 Swagbucks (SB) for making a one-time $9.99 purchase of credits toward whatever social media platform that they are running. I see nothing to indicate that this isn’t a one-time purchase, which means that you come out $20 ahead. Just head onto the site and put “IMVU” in the search engine.

If you haven’t signed up yet, we each earn $3 after you earn your first 300 points by enrolling through this link. But this site is good enough that, even if you aren’t interested in this particular offer, you should be on Swagbucks, anyway.

$15 from MyPoints


4,000 points from MyPoints

Another paid to click/shop/whatever site. MyPoints offers aren’t usually as generous as Swagbucks’s, since points are only worth about 0.6 cents each, but they make up for it by sending you several emails daily that offer five points just for clicking (If you want them; you can opt out, although I don’t). The IMVU offer at MyPoints is worth 4,000 points, or about $15 net.

One thing that I like about MyPoints: They’re responsive. I once had a question about an offer that I should have been credited for and they had taken care of it within 24 hours. That’s as close as you get to perfect customer service on the internet.

Again, I always appreciate it if you use my link. You’ll get a bonus of 1,750 points if you eventually spend $20 on the site.

Note that each site advertises as good for first-time sign-ups. Thus, I would advise that two people signing up for the offers don’t use the same credit card or email.


Subscriptions And Possible Free Candy

So, a few things today.

First, in theory, I have the subscription field working (It’s somewhere to the right –>).

Note, though, that this is only theory, because my technical skills aren’t too good. You should get an email immediately asking you to verify your email address. If you don’t, please email me at freepointsite@yahoo.com and I’ll add you manually. Sorry about the potential extra step, but trust me, it’s worth it. Well, I like to think so, anyway.

Don’t worry, one email per day, and only on days that I actually write something.

Yum, Free Candy

You’ve also got a shot at free candy, as well as football tickets, games or gear (if you win one of the big prizes). Head over to the Mars Sweepstakes and enter your info, and you could come home with something either really cool or really sweet (or both).

Test Post

This is just a test post to see if the mailing list is working. Feel free to ignore.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards (25 Points), Top Cash Back, Dosh

And a happy weekend to you! Here are some free points and other goodies.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

Hey, 25 points is 25 points. I’ve got almost 30,000 KFR points and I can’t remember the last time I bought a box of cereal. These freebies add up over the years. Enter bonus code: HOHOHOLIDAYBONUS.

Also, don’t forget your chance to spin the wheel. I got my usual 50 points.

Top Cash Back

top cash back

Today’s Clue: Bon-ton. Seriously, did anyone know that they still existed?

Another one not to forget: Top Cash Back. Play the Christmas Treats game and you could  win something. You probably won’t, but you could.


The sign-up bonus from Dosh is back through the end of the year. Okay, the sign-up bonus is always there, it’s just a better return for the person who refers you (And I thank you for using my link. Seriously, thanks!). You can earn up to $7 just by signing up and linking a few cards.

For those of you who don’t know Dosh, it’s cash back shopping for lazy people. It’s run by the same people who do Swagbucks and they advertise bank-level encryption. Simply open an account and link a credit card or three and they’ll give you a rebate every time you shop at a participating merchant. You don’t have to do anything for the brick and mortar stores, and there are probably a bunch around you, particularly local restaurants. Shop, use your card, they’ll send you a rebate. For the online stores, it’s like any other cash back shopping site: Use their link and you’ll get money back.


Getting “Perky,” Kellogg’s Family Rewards, Top Cash Back

One of the things that I wanted to do when I relaunched the site was not only develop a resource for all the free points out there but also come up with a few other ideas if you want to pick up some free cash along the way. Obviously, nobody is going to make a fortune clicking links on the internet, taking surveys or shopping at a cashback site, but there’s nothing to lose, either.

Perk Apps

apptrailers, perk

Yeah, you probably won’t earn this much money.                     Photo Credit: Creative Commons

One of the easiest, and slowest, ways to make anything is with the apps from Perk. There are a bunch of them, but they all do essentially the same thing. Simply watch videos, play games, take quizzes, etc. and they’ll give you points. You earn at a very, very, very slow rate, but it requires no effort.

The sweet spot is the videos. I just leave my phone on while I’m doing something else and let it play videos over and over. Apparently, you can also let them run on multiple devices, earning you points that much faster. The points can be traded in for cash at the rate of 1,000 points equals $1.

I’ve found two of them to be useful. The first one is called AppTrailers (Apparently, one of the things you can do is watch movie trailers.). They’ll show a video, for which you get point, then some ads, then another video, etc.  It pays a few more points than the other one I’ll recommend but, every once in a while, you have to click the forward button to get through an ad. How annoying.

The other is Perk TV. Fewer points per video, but I can go as much as an hour before they make me click on anything. Yes, my phone sits there, playing videos, earning points, and I do nothing.

Because both of these apps are run by Perk, your points will get pooled if you use the same user info for both. That speeds up the returns.

Note: Both of the above are referral links. We can each get up to $10 based on your points earnings. Again, this site won’t get you much money, but it takes no time. The guy who referred me says that he earns $50-75 per month. Not huge, but that’s $600-900 per year.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

Don’t forget to visit Kellogg’s Family Rewards for your daily spin. Naturally, I got 50 points today.

We’re getting to the end of the Christmas Treats game and, so far, it’s been mostly tricks for me. Top Cash Back gave me another sweepstakes entry, but give it a shot yourself and see if you win something. Just visit the merchant of the day and click on the bird carrying the Christmas present.

Disney Movie Rewards: Monthly Points

Don’t forget to check your email for your Disney Movie Rewards monthly surprise points. Mickey only gave me four this month.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards, Top Cash Back

I have no free points to add, but a reminder about the following contests, which cost nothing to enter:

Kellogg’s Family Rewards is offering a Spin to Win game. Just log in and spin the wheel. I continue to hit the minimum, which is 50 points.

Top Cash Back is still offering Christmas Treats for clicking on the right merchant of the day. Today’s merchant is Dell, and I got my second Gingerbread Man. One more and I’m $10 richer!


Kellogg’s Family Rewards: Spin The Wheel Is Here

For the next 10 days, you can get free points from KFR just by showing up. Click on the wheel on the home page and they will award you anywhere from 50-100,000 points.

The wheel of points

Naturally, I picked up a cool 50 points. Maybe tomorrow.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards: 100 Points, Top Cash Back

Here’s the first of what will likely be multiple posts today:

Kellogg’s Family Rewards: 100 Points

kellogg's family rewards

Sometime today…

Kellogg’s Family Rewards is offering 100 points for entering code: JOYFULPOINTS4YOU.

They’re also launching a “spin to win” promo, which is supposed to start sometime today. I’m keeping an eye out for it.

Top Cash Back: Christmas Treats

top cash back

Hooray, no entries today!

Today’s lucky Christmas treat can be found on TCB at eBags. I’ve never actually bought anything there, since I have more bags than I know what to do with, but they’re offering 18% off today.


Top Cash Back (including a flash sale), Kellogg’s Family Rewards

On to Monday…

Top Cash Back

Some of the double cash back offers

Today’s clue for the Christmas Treats game at Top Cash Back is Macy’s. As usual, I got another entry into the sweepstakes.  The site is also running a pretty good double cash back promo for 24 hours, which can be accessed off the home page.

I’m annoyed that it’s taking as long as it is for them to investigate missing cash for me, but I love the British-ness of the site. They told me that they are researching my “query.” You’ve gotta love a site that uses the word query. Oh, TCB, I could never stay mad at you…

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

Can’t believe I just discovered this one again today, but you can get 100 points for linking your KFR account to social media. That’s why it’s important to have a social media account that you use specifically for these types of resources.
