Before registering I'm sure you have a lot of questions, like how much does it cost and how do I earn points. The intention of the More Nickels n Points blog is to answer those questions and show you how to earn points and cash more efficiently.
Both Points2Shop and Cashle are entirely free and you can make hundreds of dollars by completing only the free offers. Once you join either Points2Shop or Cashle, you are instantly a member of both sites and can switch between the sites simply based on whether you want to earn points or cash. Most people prefer to earn points with Points2Shop even if they have already tried sites like PrizeRebel or MyPoints; you can earn more money, faster, and help is available any time of the day.
Keep the following in mind when deciding whether to use Points2Shop or Cashle:
- Each point is worth a penny ($0.01 USD) toward any Amazon purchase
- Points earned at Points2Shop can be used to purchase any non-giftcard item on Amazon.com
- Cash can be converted to points but points cannot be converted to cash.
- You will need an E-Gold or Paypal account to redeem cash rewards
- Cash can also be converted to an Amazon gift card
- For a small fee, Cashle can send a paper check
- You must have enough points to pay for the entire Amazon purchase plus shipping and sales tax, if applicable.
- Some advertisers only allow point incentives, so Points2Shop has some offers that Cashle does not.
Create a brand new email address for doing offers
While it is mandatory to provide correct information, it is possible to minimize the amount of junk mail and telemarketing calls you will receive. First and foremost, create a new email account with Gmail, Yahoo, or another provider and use this email for completing offers. Once you begin to receive too much junk, it is okay to open a new account.
You can reduce or avoid telemarketers
To curb telemarketing calls, consider a phone forwarding service and using your second phone number to complete offers. Brring provides a free second phone number which forwards to your existing phone after playing a short advertisement. Not only does this cause telemarketers to hang up (over 95% of the calls I receive never reach my phone), but you also earn money for each call! Check it out, there is a lot more information in the article: Reduce or eliminate telemarketer calls.
Clear tracking cookies between offers
After completing each offer, you will need to clear your browser's cookies to prevent the offer sites from confusing which offer you are completing. An easy tool to use is CCleaner - just install it and between each offer, close your browser and click Run Cleaner. There is a lot more information in the article: Clear browser cookies between offers.
Using Points2Shop to find and begin offers
Now that you have the basic tools for completing offers, it's time to get started! If you find an offer on Points2Shop or Cashle which looks appealing, click the Visit Offer button to go to the offer's web site. In most cases you will need to complete a form to provide your contact information, then skip through several pages of ads.
Free offers never require a credit card
Usually you will reach a page at the end of the offer asking you to "Complete 2 offers below" with a list of paid signup offers. You do not need to complete these offers to receive points, simply click on the number specified and close the pages once they finish loading. There are usually three such pages of offers - Silver, Gold, and Platinum. When you have finished these pages or otherwise reached the end of the offer, close the browser window or tabs.
After an offer is completed...
Once you complete an offer, you can return to Points2Shop or Cashle and click the Mark as Completed button which will list the offer as pending. If you forget, it's okay because clicking this button does not affect your chance of getting credit, it just serves to organize your offers. It's important to know which offers you have already done and also helps to show how much time offers took to credit.
Receiving your points or cash
If all goes well, most offers will credit within 10 minutes, although some advertisers only approve offers daily or weekly. You will receive an email stating that the offer approved and the points or cash will be added to your account. If an offer does not credit within a week you can try it again, from the offers page click View Claimed Offers, find the offer, click Would you like to comment? and then visit the advertiser and complete the form again. Do not attempt any completed offer a second time. For more information about redoing offers, see the article: How to redo pending offers at Points2Shop
