What is MyPoints?
MyPoints is an online reward program that pays when you complete certain tasks – often tasks that you normally do anyway, such as shopping, playing games, printing out coupons and reading emails. You can also complete surveys and partake in trial offers to earn points. As these points accumulate, you will be able to redeem them for gift cards, cash and even travel miles. They have been in business since 1996 and owned by Protege, Swagbucks parent company since 2016.
