Superpoints Shuts Down

November 7, 2012 · 6 comments

Superpoints.com announced today that they are shutting down operations as the owner, Superpoints, LLC, “has decided to cancel our management relationship and take back management of the site.”

Superpoints, LLC is owned by the original founder of the site (once known as LuckyPoints), Ryan Koonce.  The company had been managed by AdRevolution.com since 2011.

The note on Superpoints.com today said that the management company would try to complete redemptions made prior to the site’s suspension (3pm CT on 11/7) in a timely basis, and that they would not respond to any customer service inquiries in queue prior to the site’s suspension but would do their best to respond to inquiries related to redemptions.

I thought this was particularly interesting:
Is the site going down permanently?
The current team will no longer be the managing operator of the Superpoints.com domain and therefore we don’t have information as to whether or not Superpoints.com will resume service at a future date.”

I don’t think we’ve seen the last of Superpoints…although when it returns, I’m willing to bet there will be some pretty substantial changes.  Stay tuned!

I am so sooo glad that I stopped wasting my time on that site months ago and switched all my efforts to Gifthulk. Most companies and organizations give their users at least 1-2 weeks notice of any changes that will be coming their way. The fact that Superpoints failed to inform their users reflects poorly on them. GiftHulk always notified 1-2 weeks prior to the change and they almost never change their rules – only add new ways for me to earn!

I am going to have to check out GiftHulk. Does anyone have a referral link?

I have not found Superpoints very satisfying at all, so difficult and annoying to earn very much. I still have MyPoints, Swagbucks and Inbox Dollars going strong!

I really think the message is just up to try and prevent a backlash when they dont pay anyone. I’d be surprised if they really do make payouts, then try a relaunch. I assume they just ran out of money or that the owner decided it wasnt making enough money to cover the management team. Other ones to try: SwagBucks, MyPoints, StuffPoint, InboxDollars

so surprised…got my payout of $10 amazon gift card today….they actually came through with it…it still seems completely fishy that they only gave a few hours notice…there is more to the store than just management change.

If the management firm doing the day to day running of the site, get told at a few hours notice that they are “sacked” then how can they give 1-2 weeks notice of the change?

All the people on the forum on imutual that claimed payment say they have been paid by PayPal now.

So despite the understandabley healthy scepticism, those saying we will never see payment for what was redeemed for, just before the 7 November 2012 notice, are doing the old management a disservice.

And I agree with the writer of this story, I suspect it will be “third time lucky” for this site.

Perhaps they new name that they chose might be Phoenix.

If it is going to keep on rising from the ashes of its former glory each year or two.

A couple hours notice? There was NO notice. They were there, then they weren’t. I lost over $90. I was so close to cashing out. It is so wrong to screw over their members like that.
