I gave in. I’ll admit I was kinda pissed off when MyPoints changed their videos from watching single videos, (which I could fly through in no time) to video playlists. Why, I don’t know, because one can NOW earn up to 500 points per day, when previously it was capped at 75. Yes. I’m one of “those” that gets all out of sorts when there is a bit of change to my routine. Another valuable thing I like is that the points now credit immediately. You no longer have to wait and wait and……
And here is a little hint: I did the math, and if you redeem for gift cards such as Target or Walmart, the $10 ones are the best value for your points! If you do PayPal, the $25 or $50 payout is your best option. AND THEY NO LONGER CHARGE ADDITIONAL POINTS TO DO PAYPAL! Yay! I keep cashing for gift cards out as soon as I have enough points, because I am using these for Christmas shopping.
Also, these videos pay just a bit more than SB. Each SB is equivalent to 1 cent, each 2 points at MyPoints is worth about 1.25 cent. So it’s a good alternative to Swagbucks if you are looking for one. They pay 5 points ( a bit more than 3 cents) for a survey disqualification, unlike SB which pays 1 SB (1 cent). Actually, run both MyPoints and Swagbucks video playlists at the same time! Just watch them on different browsers so they don’t interfere. Otherwise you will get the, “Slow down! You may be watching videos too fast!” message.
So — if you are into the Swagbucks video playlists, this is nearly identical. The same playlist that pays 1 SB will pay 2 points here, and so on. It really is TOO easy to not do, and the play-lists will auto-play once you’ve clicked on the first one — so long as you do not have any sort of ad blocker on. I got tired of searching for the “good” video play-lists, so here is my list of links, and I’m sharing it with you! Enjoy! 🙂
Please note: Lately, the videos have been resetting after an hour or so. Yay! So, make sure to see if you can re-watch the shortest videos below again, before taking on the longer ones. 🙂 I make every effort to keep this updated on a daily basis. If it is not, I may be having a Fibro Flare, or just an attack of the lazies. lol 🙂

*** 😦 This sucks! MyPoints has increased the video lengths, and decreased the points. Nothing good ever lasts with these sites…
