MyPoints Goes Instant-Win Crazy

May 27, 2006 · 1 comment

Okay, maybe that’s an exaggeration, but they’ve just started their FOURTH instant-win game in 13 months (their second instant-win game this month alone!).
In their new Dads & Grads game — which you can access directly here: — you can play up to three times a day through June 25th. The first person to play on or nearest after a computer generated winning time will win a prize.
There will be one 100,000-point winner, 35 10,000-point winners, and 365 1,000-point winners, for a total of 401 winners. And as in prior instant win games, losers will be offered the chance to earn double points for purchases at a particular MyPoints merchant.
These contests must be lucrative to MyPoints’ bottom line, as frequently as they’re being offered now. I guess that even with offering double points, they’re still making money. Have fun, but just remember that with just 401 winners, and 1.4 million active MyPoints members, your odds of winning aren’t that spectacular.

I just accessed the CTTM from a mac and had 2 files download – pre.emf & pre-1.emf (benefit of the mac is that even though they download they then do nothing ;) ) – so there is definitely something going on with the site. It may just be a javascript error but I think it may well be something less harmless…..
