MyPoints Back to School Promotion 2007

August 29, 2007 · 0 comments

Through September 18, members of the MyPoints rewards program can play the Winning Combination instant-win game up to three times a day. Members look for a combination lock icon on the site, click it, and click on all 3 virtual lockers to see if they’ve instantly won one of 8,000 instant points prizes (more on this below), plus every game play earns the member an entry into a sweepstakes drawing for a $10,000 prize or one of four $1,000 prizes.
The 8,000 instant win (points) prizes and their values are as follows:
2,000 Second Prizes of 1,000 points (worth around $8, according to their math)
2,000 Third Prizes of 750 points (worth around $6)
4,000 Fourth Prizes of 500 points (worth around $3.90)
The prize-winning times are computer-generated, and the first person to play on or after that time will win. The site says that instant-win points will be credited within 8 to 10 weeks. The contest is open to legal residents of the US and Canada (excluding Quebec) who are 18 years or older and members of MyPoints. (To join, please click here.)
I’ll do my best to post the locations of the MyPoints combination lock (entry) icons daily here on CompareRewards, but the site does offer hints to help you find them on your own.
A word of caution: In the past there have been stories about MyPoints members having their accounts frozen after winning a contest on the site, and the most obvious these members had in common was that there were multiple accounts in that household. MyPoints allows one account per individual but they are VERY strict about account sharing or outright fraud — people who set up multiple accounts claiming “Oh, that was my husband’s account, or my daughter’s account” just to get multiple game plays. Don’t do this, people. If you try to cheat the system, you will get caught. My advice is, just play the game on one household member’s account. You may have less chance of your household winning, but you’ve got better chances of EVERYBODY’S account not getting frozen.
Best of luck to all — please post a comment if you win anything!
