Chance are you have checked out some of the many opinion and survey programs online. But have you found any that work? Today I decided to take a look at the My Points program and what I found out may be of interest.
What Is The My Points Program?
Obviously, if you have ever checked out a survey for money program, you have probably found them to be something that sets of the “Scam Radar” or the “Waste Of Time Radar” which is understandable. So many of these things pop up online and turn out to be total scams or wastes of time. I get pretty annoyed when I try one of them and it’s designed to just take your money by getting you to go through some kind of “process” to collect on them. That process usually means you have to sign up for this or that Rewards Scheme and then put in a credit card that won’t be charged unless you cancel within 30 days. Really? That’s what I call a major hustle!
My Points is one of those programs that on the outside looks similar. You earn points and cash for completing surveys, answering emails, playing games, etc. You have to buy something to earn points in a lot of the stuff they got available and that set off a red flag for me. To qualify you have to purchase something and that kind of defeats the whole purpose I would think of you trying to make a buck. Below is what the rewards looks like.
Yea, so not so impressive but it says it’s been online for the last 22 years as of this writing so I don’t know. If you read the fine print which I highly suggest, you have to complete a qualifying purchase before you can earn rewards. I guess you can take that however you want.
The signup process for this My Points deal is pretty simple too. You don’t really have to do much, just an email and name and you’re in. Take a look at this review I found on the program and let me know what you think. CLICK HERE
Now after doing some research I found one user that said after using My Points for over a decade spent 22 K on purchases and was rewarded with 5 K back. I only wonder how many little knick knack purchases he had to do to spend that much. I don’t think it’s like buying a car with a few grand off. No, this means you get points back for purchases through Amazon and other online venues that sell games for Xbox, cheap yoga pants, Chia Heads, stuff like that.Stuff I don’t need.
This doesn’t mean it’s a total scheme or scam though. In my research I actually found that My Points sits high on the review scale. People actually like the program in general. It scored about a 4 out of 5 which was kind of impressive.
Would I Do My Points?
Ehhhh, I doubt it, but that’s only because my days of getting all stoked about buying little trinkets and stuff is pretty much gone. I just don’t see the purpose in impulse buying stuff unless it’s something like..well….underwear or deodorant. Lol
But I do know that a lot of people may want to earn some points and cash for stuff they buy for kids or grandkids or whatever, a pet iguana. For those people My Points may be worth checking out. I have heard that some people do fairly well with these types of internet (uhhh hem) legal programs. But then I have know people who made a killing dumpster diving too. It’s all what floats your boat.
Are You Trying To Earn Online Or Jumping From Scheme To Scheme?
I don’t want to shoot My Points down at all, in fact I think it could be a good way for some people to make some money. I just don’t think it’s something that I personally would do. I am more in to creating a business online which is what I have been doing for the past few years by blogging on this website. What do I do? I research other online programs that are out there are try and find ones that are the best and some that aren’t worth the paper they are written on.
From my experience if you really want to make a living online I suggest building your own website and offering a service or products. And that’s the way I make money. I offer readers a way to earn online by building their own website in affiliate marketing. For me it’s proven to be fun and I have made some decent commissions doing it.
How Did I Get Started And Is It Easy For Anyone To Do?
I started by joining Wealthy Affiliate back in 2016. It’s a company that teaches people how to make a living by selling products and services to others. And it can be anything from selling snow skis to offering services to paint your toenails. I promote the learning platform which teaches people how to become affiliate marketers. HERE is the link to check it out.
Another thing I learned in the online business world is success is dependant on how much you put into your business. If you put an hour a day in, you will get an hours pay for your work. If you’re serious and want to really become successful, you need to put the time in. And that’s the way businesses work all over. You get what you put it.
Wealthy Affiliate teaches you everything you need to learn how to become successful at affiliate marketing with lessons, videos, a site builder and free hosting and a free keyword tool. What you do with all of that is up to you but if you keep building your website out, eventually you will become successful. You just can’t throw in the towel because it may be at that point that you are on the brink of success.
Above is what I made using Wealthy Affiliate’s affiliate marketing program in just a few days. Not a whole lot but it’s passive income that anyone can make. It just takes some time and effort to start making money once you learn how to blog on your website. If you are looking to earn with MY POINTS, it may happen but maybe not. With Wealthy Affiliate you will make money if you are serious and want to build a website that is successful. The sky really is the limit and it’s easy to do.
The choice is yours obviously to go with what works for you but for me building my own website has been far more rewarding than working for others or trying to make some passive income by doing surveys or opinion posts. It really all depends on what works for you. If you are looking for a legit way to make an income by building your own website it can’t hurt to check out Wealthy Affiliate. HERE’S the link again.
To Your Success!
