Notes:(1) “PCHPoints is a rewards program provided by Memolink, Inc….PCHPoints is managed and serviced exclusively by Memolink, Inc. and all transactions while participating in the PCHPoints program are between the participant and Memolink.”
(2) Memolink is currently having financial problems. PCHPoints changed its daily “free” points immediately after Memolink did in Jan 04. I would be cautious about holding a large point balance there.
(3) 6/03: Got a note from a user (Ravenval) who got paid within a week of cashing out! Ravenval’s Site
