Points2Shop Review





Points2Shop is a free gift site that promises to deliver prizes for time spent viewing adverts, subscribing to newsletters, trialing offers and filling in variable length surveys.



Straight away the site seems professional, not only is it laid out well but there is so much information that it's virtually impossible to get stuck, there are many earning opportunities which will reward online points and most of these are open to members around the world thanks to global advertising.


Redeeming Prizes


The main method of redemption is spending points on items from Amazon and P2S catalogues a wide range of items including electronics, dvds, toys and even books. If you can order it from Amazon there's a good chance you can order it from P2S without hassle, they also support orders from independent sellers however using them instead of Amazon means placing a custom order which may cost more on shipping and also take longer to deliver.



All offers have forum feedback so its easy to check whether the offer credits and learn how to complete these offers correctly by reading other member's experiences, all approved offers are counted and displayed clearly so you have a rough estimate of how likely the offer is to credit before you attempt it.

The offers themselves are quite simple and most only require a few personal details, there are full blown surveys though which may ask you quite a lot of personal questions and some of these can take anywhere upto 20 minutes to fill out but usually reward handsomely. There are also paid offers which credit you for buying/trialing services such as blockbuster or lovefilm and these credit much more than free offers because a credit card is usually required to signup, you can also gain points for signing up to sites and installing their software.


Completing Offers



As you can see its easy to keep track of completed offers and gain further perception of how likely the offers are to approve, this table can be used to estimate how many points you might earn from the offers you have signed up for but because some offers are less likely to approve it may be wise to think of your potential earnings as half of what you count on this page... that way there will be less disappointment when several offers are not approved, you can use this threshold to motivate yourself when aiming for a large amount of points.


Merit Quests




One of the great things about this site is the experience system, by doing something so many times you are awarded bonus points... its much like a role playing game where you'd level up for defeating a set amount of enemies, you gain experience for each one and eventually receive an award for your quest.

This makes things so much more interesting because now we have several areas that we can explore and master, with the end goal split up into several smaller goals we might get lost along the way but this partitioning system ensures that members remain interested and motivated towards mastering it.


Honour Level


Linked in with the experience system is an honour rating, this shows other members how dedicated you are and the higher level you are, the more trustworthy you are considered to be.

New Member

After confirming your email address you will receive 100 points and gain the ability to green thumb advice from other members, new members can only participate in lower ranked offers.

Bronze

After confirming your phone number with the automated phone verification system you will receive 150 points.

Silver

After earning at least $10 from completed offers, having no more than 5% of your offers denied and after completing at least 10 offers you will be able to participate in manual offers, challenge other members to compete with you in a one on one game and also gain the power to tag offers in order to classify and label them. Green thumb is revoked from silver members as they are now seen as experienced enough to help others.

Gold

After earning at least $25 from completed offers and having your oldest approved offer more than 2 months old you will be able to participate in all offers including newly unlocked ones, get instant PayPal payments when you withdraw cash earnings to your PayPal account and also gain the power to moderate the forum and shoutbox.

Platinum

After earning at least $50 from completed offers and referring at least 10 members you will receive 250 points and earn a Green title in the shoutbox.


Shout Box


On the left hand side of the site there is a chat box where members can ask questions and socialise, there is nearly always a moderator or admin available so it shouldn't be difficult to find technical support. The same is true for trusted members and its easy to find a mentor while you're learning.

There is also a robot running in the shoutbox which makes several announcements including member promotions and paid game winners, this is a very useful feature that should not be ignored.




You can grab the attention of another member in the shoutbox by typing part of their username before you type your message, this highlights your message in yellow on their screen and ensures they notice what you've typed.


Games


Members can play games against each other for fun or for a point wager, this is another way to socialise and also earn more points... while the games may not be masterpieces they do allow everyone to participate and earn points.



Race upto 10 other players (not in real time) for upto 150 points, the player with the best overall time after 5 laps wins, game types with more player slots have extra winning positions.



Shoot corks at targets in a carnival style game that can house upto 10 players (not in real time) for upto 200 points, game types with more player slots have extra winning positions.



Guess the lowest number from between 1 and 99,999 upto 5 times a day to stand a chance of winning the daily point jackpot.


Lottery



Submit feedback for offers to receive lottery tickets, match the numbers to win points! The lottery is drawn once a week and can have multiple winners.


Final Thoughts


With tooltip hints on almost every page there's not much chance of getting stuck, taking time to discover all the features of the site will aid you getting your points faster and with help at hand almost 24/7 using the shoutbox you will likely have very few problems earning prizes! The community aspect makes this site so much fun to use, its almost like you're not even working for the prizes but instead sharing your progress with friends and actively competing for experience and more points.
