I signed up to do MyPoints.com 3 months ago. I just shopped for my first reward which is a $10 gift certificate to Panera Bread Company.

MyPoints sends me emails every day (usually 1-3). All I do is click on them to earn points (usually 5 points per email). If I qualify to complete a short survey they will give me 500-1,000 points (points vary with surveys).

It takes seconds to open an email and delete it. I’m not getting any points or money for telling you this. I’m just passing it along.

Once you get above 1,000 points you can start ’shopping’ at My Points for free meals at local restaurants, gas cards etc. in the form of gift certificates sent to your home free of charge. It has taken me 3 months, working about 10 seconds per day, to earn my first $10 gift certificate. The pay isn’t great, but it’s nice to get the reward.

The list of restaurants & stores from which to choose gift certificates is extensive. I haven’t received any unwanted emails from participating in MyPoints – just a sweet $10 off at Panera’s!
