PCHPoints to Close

November 17, 2005 · 0 comments

PCHPoints.com sent out an email this afternoon stating that they were shutting down the program.
Anyone surprised? Anyone?
Okay, I admit. I AM a little surprised. I thought they’d at least try to make it through the end of the year. This is the Christmas shopping season — lots of money to be made by shopping portals like theirs…but maybe they wanted the tax write-off they could get by shutting it down by year-end, I don’t know.
Anyway… They’re allowing users to continue to earn points through 11/30 and redeem until 1/15/06. They’ve eliminated the 5,000 point Burger King redemption and now the cheapest non-charity redemption is 9,000 points (for various $10 GCs). I’ll do some digging and try to find some non-spending point-earning opportunities on the site for those folks needing more points to cash out. Remember to do trivia every day between now and then (that’d be 140 points). (Need help with the answers? Click here.)
