Points ratio

Post by thebigscott on Thu May 22, 2008 12:32 am

Before it all came crashing down, it said I had 3500 BzzPoints, and that it would be 28,000 MyPoints. That's 1 BzzPoint = 8 MyPoints. Anyone know the dolar value of MyPoints points?

If you go to the My Points site and click on "rewards" you can see what your points will buy.

Like a $50 target gift card for 7500 points.

It seems to vary based on merchant.

It is hard to say what point value is there currently. Just a quick look and they have these offers featured:
$10 Red Lobster card 1400 points
$25 Pizza Hut 3500 points
$25 Bennigans 3250 points
$25 Outback Steakhouse 3600 points

I'm laughing, but we ARE being screwed up the ass here. Near as I can tell, our points just lost 40% of their value.

ITA. I understand that our bzzpoints would have to lose value in order to pay for the new system, but 40%? That's just wrong.

Can you just imagine how bad they are gona screw us when they roll out the new system? when we get to start getting new grades?

Okay, so if we lost 40 % are they gona start giving us 3/50's ? then it would even out. sorta.

From the mypoints site:


Earn free gift cards, dining, travel and more from over 50 top mercants like


Now, I am trying to remember that Joe is the messanger. He is PR. not rewards, campaigns, really fat freakin wallet man, or even a comdev. But I am just so.... I dont know. Honestly, I am not even mad. truthfully. I am let down. Its like holding a raffle ticket and they have called out 7 of the 8 numbers and when they call out the last one you are one number away. I am just deflated.

I hear ya. Just when you think the company is listening they try to pull one over on you in a way in which they think they've outsmarted you. I honestly care far less about getting screwed over, it's the underhanded way that they did it and tried to hide it.

I am frusterated I expected some points to go towards the new switch but definitely not this large of a percent (40) it seems like we were better off before in some ways.

I do like that we can actually USE our points now. But to me, it's kind of like fixing the kitchen sink by taking some pipes off the bathroom sink. It's different, but not exactly better.

I tend to agree brandiland, but I dislike that our points have lost a lot of value in the conversion. At least there are no keychains or hideous troll dolls involved, but when they put up a 'shaloha is here' beelog they will be getting a bit of negative feedback.

I signed up for them before, got some points, but it wasnt my cup of tea. I couldnt get enough points so I quit.

I dont need a new place to go. I just want to spend my points with bzzagent. and I dont remember them asking us if we wanted to go OFFISTE for this shit.

can you just imagine the problems?? not getting credited, not getting our stuff haveing to deal wiht someone else. Them saying its not their problem when they dont send over our points and mypoints saying they never sent it over.

And yes thsi will cut into it. before it was Bzz purchasing the prizes, now they are giving money to someone to purchase the prizes, so my points has to make a profit. that just means less fo rus.

Besides losing 40% of our points, doesn't MP send out a lot of spam? I hope I'm wrong on that one...

I've been with mypoints for a while, clicked the links in their emails regularly, and only accumulated enough points for a $10 gift card.I guess I'll be getting a few more now.
