5,000 Points for Hulu

Wow, I don’t know what happened to Zoey Bartlet, but that kidnapping really must have had an impact on her. She really got swept up in that whole new society in The Handmaid’s Tale.

Her loss is your gain, though. MyPoints is offering 5,000 points to sign up for Hulu through their site. Plans start at $7.99 and you need to keep your membership for at least eight days. or they’ll take back your no-so-hard-earned points. 5,000 points is worth $31.25, so your total value is $23.26. They promise that your points will be credited in 48 hours. Added bonus: Buffy The Vampire Slayer is on Hulu.

MyPoints is one of my favorite paid to click/search/shop/etc. sites, which has bigger offers like this one, as well as smaller ones that offer a few points for clicking a link, and everything in between. I’ve got a referral link around here somewhere, but I’m too lazy to look it up. Regardless, I suggest that you join the site, even if you don’t do this offer.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards Warning

I got an email from KFR warning me that my points would expire on August 1 if I didn’t earn points before then. Turns out that they have a three-month expiration period. I enter a code almost every week (Heaven forbid that I should actually have to, you know, buy something.), but it’s worth keeping an eye on.

Pampers Rewards: 10 Points

Hey, remember Pampers Rewards/Gifts to Grow/whatever they’re called now? They used to give out codes every few days. They don’t anymore, but I recently stumbled across one for 10 points. Enter code TARGETRK18 at their site and you’ll pick up your free points.

Bad news: As of May 31, they’re discontinuing code entries. Since my kids no longer wear diapers, I guess I’d better look for a 10 point redemption.

A big thank you to HeyItsFree for today’s code.

Disney Movie Rewards Trivia: Five Free Points (Maybe?)

So Disney seems to have moved the Disney Movie Rewards Trivia, although I’m not sure where they actually put it. As far as I can tell, this quiz is the newest one. I determined that by increasing the number at the end of the string by one until it told me that it couldn’t go any further. That’s all that I know, although it did give me my five free points.

Disney Movie Rewards: Free Monthly Bonus Points

It’s that time! Check your email for your newsletter from Disney Movie Rewards and scroll to the bottom. Click on the bottom banner and you’ll pick up some free points. I got six.

Kellogg’s Family Rewards Free Bonus Points: 50 Points

Finally! It’s been a while since we’ve gotten any of these free bonus codes. I was getting so desperate for Kellogg’s Family Rewards Points that I almost bought a box of cereal.

Simply head over and enter code: MOMS-DAYB-ONUS-4YOU to pick up your 50 points.

Help Me Earn $100,000! Oh, And You Can Get Money…

Okay, it’s not that easy, but it does give me an opportunity to talk about Ibotta, one of my favorite cash back app sites.

Here’s how it works: When you come back from the supermarket, take a look at Ibotta and see what they’re giving money back for. If you bought any of the brands or products on the list, you’ll earn cash back, from $.25 to $5.00. Upload a photo of the receipt and you’re done. Or, you can register your frequent shopper card, although that requires choosing in advance the products that you’ll be buying.

Of course, that’s not what they’re hoping you’ll do. They’re hoping that you’ll look on the app ahead of time and use it to determine which products to buy. Every once in a while, they’re giving so much cash back that the product is free, but that’s unusual. More frequently, they’ll throw some cash at you for uploading any receipt, just to keep you interested.

The New Contest


I’m not exactly sure how this works, but apparently, if you sign up as my referral and do something in the month of May, we’ll each get $5 and I’ll be entered into some kind of promotion to win money. Yes, it’s all about me, but you can also refer people and be entered as well. Kind of swell.

Ibotta is my favorite of the cash back shopping apps. It costs nothing to sign up and you’ll earn cash back for making purchases. And if you do sign up, it would be really kind of you to use my referral code: B3CKTW. Thanks!


No Trivia For Disney Movie Rewards?

Every two weeks, Disney Movie Rewards posts a few trivia questions that are worth five points when you answer them.

This week, though, is a bit different. Not only are there no new questions but the link to trivia has been removed altogether. I’m hoping that it’s simply a delay but, in the past, when new questions were delayed, the questions from the previous week stayed up. Nothing now.

New Month, So Visit Recyclebank

Don’t forget to visit Recyclebank, a site dedicated to teaching you how to live greener and picking up a few bucks from the corporate partners. Nothing wrong with that, by the way.

You can benefit also. The site has numerous links that you can click to earn points, exchangeable for everything from gift cards to their proprietary site to magazines. Hundreds of points are available, so it’s worth a visit.


Disney Movie Rewards: Free Points

I got an email today from Disney Movie Rewards offering me a spring sale on redemptions. I was pleased to see, though, that there was also a link for mystery points in there. I only picked up three, but that’s better than, well, two.

Coca-Cola Offers: A Few Uses For Caps

With the formal My Coke Rewards program gone, I always forget that there are still usually opportunities to get something for your caps. Here are two.

Movies at Home


Want to rent a movie on Amazon? Get a freebie, or at least one worth up to $3.99, by entering 25 codes. Act fast, though, since the deal ends on May 9.

Movies Away from Home


This one’s a better deal and lasts through July 16. Heck, it’s good enough that I might participate.

  • Enter five codes and get a large soda at AMC Theaters
  • Enter another seven codes and you’ll get a free large popcorn.
  • Finally, enter another 10 and you’ll get a free ticket.

Since the value of all the movie gigs are over $24, you could turn this one into a money-maker, depending on how much you pay for your Coca-Cola.
