OpenSky 150 mypoints per $1

Post by briteasafirefly on Thu Sep 27, 2012 1:54 pm

I don't think I've ever seen a mypoints offer this great!
150 mypoints per dollar(up to $500) spent is pretty amazing! I went in search of finding something that I could use. I got my zipbuds from here and was pretty satisfied with that purchase(especially considering Zipbuds replaced that pair with no hassles), so other than it sometimes takes a couple weeks to ship something, I was determined to get in on this offer!

Today I grabbed the last TRAINERroller Foam Roller for $32...
I've been considering one for a long time and just kept putting it off. This point seems prety nice in that the exercises are on the roller. I can't wait to start using it after going running...well once it ships in a couple of weeks.

It sounds too good to be true! This is what I see on the mypoints website about this offer.

This offer valid on purchases up to $500 per household. If you cancel, exchange or return your purchase, Points awarded for your original transaction will be deducted from your account.

Points are available until 9/30/12, or until the maximum number of Points have been claimed. Once the maximum number of Points have been claimed, the offer will no longer be available and you will be directed back to the MyPoints website.

Your Points will be credited within 30 days of completing the transaction.

OpenSky points are different from Points earned in the MyPoints program and may not be used for MyPoints rewards.


Do we get MyPoints or OpenSky Points for purchasing?

I saw that and OpenSky does have their own point system for discounts on their website, but I just checked in the shop section on mypoints and Opensky has 150 pts. per dollar listed next to it. So I made sure to go to OpenSky through mypoints before purchasing... wanted to make sure I did it right.

Does sound too good to be true, but I double checked and it seems true...

Again - this has to be too good to be true! I just spent $179 there.

$179 x 150 MyPoints = 26,850 MyPoints For real?

7,500 MyPoints = $50 Amazon
3 x 7,500 = 22,500 MyPoints

So I can spend $179 and snag close to $200 Amazon????

Make that OVER $200 Amazon! <---this isn't correct, I fixed my math in a post below. BUT, I could get over $200 in gift cards depending on my choices!

Jessica, if this is for real I owe you big time for the heads up, girl!

Wow, thanks for posting. Looks like everyone loves this deal because the site went down while I was shopping. I have one item picked out so far, but ti is only $23. I looked at Lori's math and I am looking around for more as soon as the site is up again!

I think it has to be some kind of deal with OpenSky...
mypoints is basically advertising for OpenSky by doing this...mypoints is not going to advertise for free. With a some unknown limit set on how many points can be handed out, I think Opensky made a deal to pay mypoints a certain amount. So if thats the case, then the reward amounts shouldn't be jacked up since OpenSky is basically paying for those rewards that we will be getting.

Someone could get 75,000(spend $500) from this deal or basically $500 back in Amazon giftcards. It works out pretty closely to basically get back what you spent.

I kept adding to my cart when I tried to check out at $90 and saw a message that shipping is free at $100. I actually changed my mind on several things. I think I ended up buying a $60 chambray shirt, a $60 wallet for my son for Christmas, a set of gourmet nut snacks for hubster for Christmas and a pair of sterling hoop earrings(also for me).

Oops, my math was a bit skewed. Jessica is right, you get back about what you put into it. With my purchase I could get this with my points:

7500 MyPoints = $50 Amazon
7500 MyPoints = $50 Amazon
7500 MyPoints = $50 Amazon
3950 MyPoints = $25 Amazon

OpenSky just sent me a email advertising the mypoints deal with a free shipping code...too bad the code was a little too late for me, but I thought I'd share it...

Well I just spent $145. I spent a long time at the site and I forgot to go back to MyPoints and start the link over because sometimes it gets lost when you shop for so long. I sure hope my 21750 points do come through and I don't have to fight them for it - but I will if need be! Here is what I got:

Dalton-Ruhlman Two Spankies
Michael Ruhlman $25.00 1

Jersey Knot Dress by Annalee + Hope Color: Pink
Clearance Shop $19.00 1

Kyocera Adjustable Slicer
Ming Tsai $24.00 1

Tili Bags in Hunter/Teal
Julie Morgenstern $18.00 1

Reusable & Washable Snack Bags from Itzy Ritzy
Style: 1 Social Circle Blue Snack Bag with mini-2pack
Tanya Zuckerbrot, MS, RD $23.00 1

Esse Reusable Shopping Bag System (Set of 6)

Wow, this was a great offer while it lasted. I'm embarrassed to say that I placed another order yesterday before the offer disappeared. I got some of the Salsa sampler sets from Guy Fieri (Christmas Gifts), one of those goofy Brian Broccoli book & puppet (Christmas gift) and a set of the pie fillings. I can't wait to check this stuff out! Spent $294 in all, so need to pick some good gift cards out.

I got shipping notices today, and then I checked MyPoints page and I did notice the offer is gone. It had said it would be good until 9/30. I did take a screen shot of the offer, but I hope I don't have to use it. It has been a very long time since I made a shopping purchase for points, so how long does it usually take for them to show up as pending?

It was good until 9/30 or when the mypoints ran out...there was a set number of mypoints available for this offer. At a $500 maximum, it was a probably a lot of points and a lot of members probably got in on the deal...I'm actually surprised it lasted as long as it did.

Kleenaechs.... its within 30 days of purchase, but I don't think I've ever had to wait 30 days.This deal might take closer to 30 days... I'm sure they want to double check everything to make sure that members are credited properly and catch those who return items since those points are cancelled.

when I make online purchases for mypoints, I just flag the offer(if there is one) and then my conformation and shipping emails...so I remember to check on my points and its easy to find if I need to contact mypoints about being credited.

I also expect it to take the maximum estimate. I contact them on day 30 if I see nothing, and they're good about crediting then, but they will pend for 30 days from that point. Hope we can cash these in before the holidays.

I want to say that I remember reading an email telling us when we needed to cash in by, in order to get the giftcards by Christmas. I feel like it was towards the end of November. Personally if I was planning on using the giftcards for christmas presents, I would order sooner than that to aviod the possiblity of the nes I want being out of stock and to make sure I had them with plenty of time to spare.

If the points are pending for 30 days(as usual) and it takes up to 30 days from the date of the transaction(if no point issues come up), then 60 days from last friday(I think thats when the available points ran out) would be Nov. 27th.

Nov. 27th might be cutting it close to getting giftcards mailed in time since thats 4 weeks before christmas...

I have a $10 credit with OpenSky so I am back browsing the site. I noticed that MyPoints does not have a shopping link for them any more. I thought it would come back at a lower rate, but it just is not there at all. I am using Ebates and they are paying 12.5%. If you shopped with them in the past, you may have credits also. Check your email or your account.

It looks like I'm going to be testing out the OpenSky customer service. I received some of my orders today and got the Brian Broccoli puppet but the book was not included in the package. The puppet is adorable (so BIG!) but I really need the book too.

I got my point too.

Maybe it was the sudden demand but Opensky seem very disorganized. They have sent 3 emails apologizing for not delivering something that got delivered a week ago.

I agree with this. It seems like a constant flow of emails is coming in saying that an item is preparing to ship and will be received within a week or that an item has been shipped. I never got a direct email response to my question about the missing book but did receive an email that the item was preparing to ship, so I assume that they're sending another one. Hope they send both the book and puppet so I have an extra puppet. Very Happy

Good to see this. I don't have mine yet and I am worried as I did shop a long time without renewing my link. I did click through 4 or 5 times though. I just know I meant to relink it before I paid and I forgot.
