Limit One Account Per: ?

Dollar Value of a Point: $0.006579 for Disney hotel GCs, $0.006667 for Disney Dollars, $0.006452 for DisneyStore GCs, $0.006557 for PayPal
Daily “Free” Points: About 22

Notes: Must forward order confirmations to receive credit for purchases. Members are REQUIRED to visit Henwen’s forum and acknowledge posts made by Dizawardsmom, otherwise account will be terminated. Can only redeem for rewards in a 30 day window following the end of a quarter, otherwise earnings roll over. Note that the site owner does not consider this a rewards program but rather a community that awards its members.

Premium membership lowers redemption costs but costs 2000-6000 points depending on level of membership (copper, silver, gold, platinum).

Site is currently being revamped.

This program is having problems. It is a one-woman show… she is having personal problems. A new and improved web site was done for the program. While I like the new web-site it isn’t complete. The points to cash out were doubled… used to be 800 points per 10 disney dollars. now it is 1600 per 10 disney dollars. I’ll be sticking with it for now to see how it turns out.

This site owes me my reward from July! The site owner does not respond to emails and does not post in her own forums.
Some members have mysteriously lost points which have never been restored to their accounts.
We are now at the end of the 4th quarter and still cannot cash out for rewards earned in the third quarter, which ended in September!
Do not join this program! It is a total waste of time.

This site WAS a great program, but now its at the point where it made the Boycott list. I have too many complaints to make, as I would be here for an hour listing them, they have stopped giving points for activities, and owe people money for at least 6 months- a year behind in some payments..Stay away from this one, at least untill the 13th of Jan. which is when the Domaine name is due to expire…

I have to agree with the above posters. The “personal problems” excuse has gone on way too long. She now wants you to pay to be a premium member of a site that is anything but “premium”. Read the GPT Boycott forum postings. I’m one of many who have never been paid. Don’t waste your time.
