500 MyPoints Daily for ANY Overstock.com Order!

October 29, 2004 · 5 comments

Update: I’m not sure if the offer’s been pulled, if they’re reworking it to exclude media-only orders, or if it was just < 24 hours since my last order, but this morning (11/1) after placing a one-book-only order I got this message: "This award has expired. No Points can be awarded at this time. (Most Point awards are available for a limited time.) For hundreds of other Point-earning opportunities, please visit the Earn Points page. If you received this message in error, please try again. If you continue to experience difficulty with a valid Point award, please contact Member Care and mention the name of the offer." So this may be a dead deal. Try it at your own risk now!
I am RACKING UP at MyPoints by placing a small media-only order each day through their Overstock link in Department/Megastores. The wording of the promotion makes it sound like media-only (that’s books/music/videos/magazines only) orders don’t qualify. They don’t qualify for the free shipping on a $60 order offer, but they do qualify for the 500 points per order daily! And shipping on a single media item is just $1.40, cheaper than their flat-rate shipping on other items!
Have spent $22.40 on 5 orders…4 orders of a single book, one order of two CDs. Earned 500 points for each for a total of 2500 MyPoints, which is the equivalent of $22.73. I’m actually making a profit of 33c on my five orders! And they’re Christmas presents that I would’ve bought anyway. I’m happy!

does overstock accept paypal?

YEP, Overstock does take PayPal! AND (I didn’t know this until recently) even if the site didn’t officially take PayPal, there’s now an option on PayPal to create a “virtual credit card” (sorta like a webcertificate) so you can now spend PayPal at ANY site that takes credit cards!

When do we receive the points? Is it as soon as the order is placed or do we have to wait 8 weeks to see it?

Hi, Monika! You’ll get the blue popup box as soon as you complete the order, and the points will appear in your account overnight.

I am buying quite a few items on Overstock.com and would like points added to my My points account. I do not wish to spend any at this time. How do I ensure this?
