Double Points

Post by briteasafirefly on Thu May 05, 2011 5:23 pm

I'm all for getting extra points from purchases, but after my last online purchase I was a little surprised to see my points were doubled. Did I miss a email announcing this because I haven't seen anything on mypoints about it.
Was this just a March thing or is it ongoing?

Oh and I had my first disappointment with points crediting...petcarerx and mypoints used to be great about crediting purchases right away, but my last order I had to email mypoints about it after the 30 days. Not that it was a pain to get the points credited, but still disappointing that I had to track it to make sure it happened.

Well, there are featured stores every day that double the points. Maybe it was one of those and you didn't realize it. You can see which stores are doubled by clicking on Shop and then looking on the right hand side (down a little). Today it says:

MyJewelryBox
Double your Points! Shop through this link today and earn twice the current 4 Points per dollar.
8 Points per dollar
CarRentals.com
Double your Points! Shop through this link today and earn twice the current 3 Points per dollar.
6 Points per dollar

Now let's discuss when they cut points in half - like they just did for Overstock.com orders. Sad It used to be a no-brainer. Their book and music prices beat Amazon's and you got 10 points per dollar. Now I'll have to check around and would probably just order through ebates.

I have been emailing them for 90 days over a Cabela's order. Mike spent $826, and they haven't credited, and Cabela's says they may not

What's their issue with the Cabela purchase, Erin? I know I went around with them for awhile on them not doubling points on a magazine purchase through Magazines.com. In the end, they said that I had ordered through a Bonus email click-through and received what the email promised. Had I ordered through MyPoints.com I'd have earned a different number of points. I guess I understood their reasoning because I decided to drop the issue. Other than that I've won every argument with them.

that stinks about Cabelas...how is it not qualified? their only restriction listed with Cabelas says that gift card purchases count.

I didn't even notice overstock dropped in point value...I know a couple of times I made big points with overstock with some mypoints holiday promo where i think it was double the points or maybe it was 50% more points.
