MyPoints Review – Best Reward Site for Online Paid Surveys!

MyPoints - Rewards for SurveysMyPoints is one of the oldest reward sites. At Mypoints, members earn rewards by doing various online activities, – they get paid to take surveys, read emails, shop online, print coupons, search and watch videos etc.

Is MyPoints Legit or Scam?

Operated by Prodege, LLC (the same company behind Swagbucks), MyPoints definitely is legitimate. Personally I have been paid a few times. Recently I just redeemed again for cash through Paypal. I will provide payment proof once I receive payment.

My MyPoints Review

I am a long time member of MyPoints. Over the years I have earned enough points to redeem rewards a few times.  I have been earning points mostly from taking online surveys and reading the paid BonusMails.

MyPoints BonusMail

MyPoints sends members BonusMails daily – I receive average 4 BonusMails per day. BonusMails offer deals to shop and sign up at various retailers or advertisers.  Examples:  get 100 points if you sign up for certain newsletter of a name brand. Or earn x points per dollar you spend at y store etc. Among 30% – 40% of those mails (used to nearly 100%), you can earn 5 points just for  clicking the “Get Points” button within the email and visiting the destination website. This was my main way to earn points at MyPoints before, although I did occasionally answer their surveys.

MyPoints Surveys

In the recent years I have noticed that MyPoints is offering members a lot more surveys with better reward points. Surveys I have seen ranging from 5 minutes to 50 minutes, providing up to 680 points. I personally have enjoyed taking their surveys. I qualify for 1/4 of the surveys I tried. You still earn 5 points if you try but disqualify for the “featured surveys” (the ones have the start next to the survey numbers). You can also earn 5 points for every 10 questions under “Your Survey Profile” under the survey zone. Sometimes they offer bonus points for each survey for a limited time.

MyPoints Rewards Payment

I had redeemed multiple Wal-Mart gift cards in the early days, and I had always received the gift cards in the mail quickly.

Recently I redeemed points twice. The first time I redeemed 1590 points for $10 Paypal – which I requested the reward on a Saturday, and received the payment the next Monday. The second time I redeemed 2370 points for $15 Amazon gift card, I received the gift card code instantly after submitting the request!

Following is the part of the screen shot of the Paypal payment I received from MyPoints. I will update this MyPoint review if I redeem points again in the future.

In Conclusion

MyPoints is a reputable reward site. Among their many ways to earn points, answering surveys is my favorite, therefore I consider MyPoints a decent online survey site. Plus great cash and gift card rewards with low redeem threshold, I think MyPoints is a great site to earn rewards and yes, I think you give it a try!

  1. Update – I receive 15-20 click e-mails a week. And I receive 7-11 surveys a month and qualify for 1-3 of them. I haven’t had any problems with them. They are in my personal top 12 best paying companies!

  2. Update – I receive 16-29 click/surveys a week and qualify for 0-1 survey a month, not as good at qualifying for surveys as it was in 2010. I haven’t has any problems with them.

  3. [quote name=crystal]ok i am still new to this mypoints and i only receive about 1 email from them every 4 or 5 days how come i am not getting them everyday like you guys are i am really interested in this site but would like to do surveys and emails but cant figure it out[/quote]
    Did you just join? If so wait another month. Have you done your profiles?

  4. ok i am still new to this mypoints and i only receive about 1 email from them every 4 or 5 days how come i am not getting them everyday like you guys are i am really interested in this site but would like to do surveys and emails but cant figure it out

  5. Update – I receive 15-26 click/read e-mails a week. I qualify for 0-2 surveys a month. I have been racking up the points with them lately. I havent had any problems with them or receiving the GC’s.

  6. Just a heads up, mypoints has been cancelling a lot of accounts without warning. They recently cancelled mine with no warning and no explanation. I emailed them 3 times and they will only reply with a form email. I had close to 3000 points and they are GONE! After it happened, I googled closed mypoints account and found that it is happening to a lot of people. It seems like they are claiming people have violated terms of service but conveniently refusing to say what they have done. It also seems like 3000 points is the “magic number” for getting your account cancelled. Some complaints I found suggested that the bad economy may have hurt them and they need to re-coup some $$$! Beware Mypoints!

  7. I receive 7-28 click/read e-mails a week.
    You do get 5 points for clicking on the e-mails. I receive 1-2 surveys a week, but I havent qualified yet. I havent signed up for any free/paid offers and I havent had any problems with them.

  8. :-?: What is a paid e-mail? I’ve been reading all of your information and am seriously considering doing the surveys.

    Do you need to report any money you get from surveys — do you get a 1099 from those that pay by check or PayPal?

    I also work full time and would only be able to do this in the evenings? Will I be missing out if I don’t respond quick enough?

    I want to let you know that you have answered just about ALL of my questions on your website.
