It seems that people did not like Superpoints’ announcement that they’re charging more points for prizes and that they’re limiting “earning with your friends,” one of the site’s big selling points. The Superpoints Facebook page is filled with angry members saying they are canceling their accounts. I noticed that my member rank, based on the number of friends I’ve referred, and the friends THEY have referred, 5 levels deep, fell from a steady 96 to 104 within two days. People are definitely bailing.
So if you’re looking for alternatives to Superpoints, here are my suggestions:
iRazoo – Earn points randomly for using their search engine, watching videos, completing surveys, offers, and tasks, or playing games. They also give away special points codes on their Facebook account. Earn when your friends earn, up to a maximum of 3,000 points ($5) per friend. Cash out your points for gift cards to Amazon, Home Depot, CVS, Groupon, and more.
Swagbucks – Earn Swagbucks randomly while searching, or by watching videos, completing surveys and other offers, answering polls, or by special codes they give out. 450 points = a $5 Amazon GC, but other redemptions are available. Even if surveys aren’t your thing, you can probably cash out once a week for a $5 redemption. Earn when your friends earn, up to a cap.
QuickRewards.net – Earn cash for searching, attempting surveys, completing surveys (MANY available), completing tasks or offers on the same offerwalls as Superpoints, visiting websites, playing trivia, printing and using coupons, and cash back if you shop online. NO minimum to cash out to PayPal, which is paid out usually nightly and you can cash out as often as you’d like. You can choose emailed or snail-mailed gift cards instead if you’d prefer, mailed out weekly.
MyPoints – Earn points redeemable for gift cards for searching, answering questionnaires and surveys, reading emails/visiting websites, and shopping online. Not a fly-by-night program, MyPoints has been in business for over 10 years, and their points cost for the different gift cards stays pretty constant. Redemptions start at 1,600 points for a $10 gift card or 1,500 points for 75 Facebook credits.
4Loot – The only redemption here is for Facebook credits, but if you play a lot of FB games this may work for you. It’s different, it’s quirky, and it’s fun: earn coins redeemable for FB credit when you search (awarded randomly), watch videos, complete surveys, or play various daily games. Get a random bonus when you use their site to search five days in a row. Win when your friends win (up to 500 coins). The minimum to cash out is 65 coins, for 2 FB credits. You should be able to earn this within about a week.
