Update, Nov. 13, 2012 – Superpoints is no more! They closed their doors this month.
How can you get points on Super Points?
You can get points by watching videos (usually just gives one point for a couple minute long YouTube video), filling out offers, opening emails from Super Points (usually only containing a point or two), answering surveys, and using the Super Lucky button. Of course you can also get points by inviting your friends to sign up for Super Points.
The Super Lucky Button? What in the world is that?
This is sort of different than what most similar sites have. Basically it’s just a big button you can click over and over and you may or may not be awarded points for each click. The number of times you can click it per day depends on your member rank. If you’re a “Basic” member, which is what I currently am, you can only click the button 30 times a day. If you are “Gold” member, you can click it 50 times a day and you’ll also win the points your friends who have signed up under you win when they click the button. If you are a “Platinum” member, you’ll get 100 Super Lucky Button clicks per day and you’ll also win what your friends win and have more buttons you can unlock.
When I click the button my 30 times per day, I usually only win maybe one to three times. Sometimes I win like 20 points and sometimes just a point, so I guess it is just really random.
Do you have to pay to increase your member level?
No. Super Points is absolutely free in every way. You can increase your member level by inviting friends. You need at least two friends to be a “Basic” member and five friends to be a “Platinum” member.
More About Member Levels
Your member level also determines how many points you need to redeem for stuff in the rewards catalog. At the “Basic” level, you need 2500 points to redeem for anything. At “Gold,” you just need 1000 points to redeem. As a “Platinum” member, you can start redeeming rewards at just 500 points.
What’s in the Rewards Catalog?
Lots of stuff. They have the ever-popular $5 Amazon card and then there’s also $5 to Paypal and you can get as much as $500 cash to your Paypal depending on how many points you have to use for redemptions. There’s also electronics, toys, you name it.
The amount each reward will cost you in points varies from week to week. Sometimes Superpoints has special deals and sales on certain rewards.
How does the referral system work?
Your referral network can extend down five levels. I can’t find a whole lot of details on how inviting friends benefits you a lot other than that once someone you invite reaches the Basic member level, you get 25 points. It also says on the sites that you’ll earn rewards faster with more friends signed up under you.
You win what your friends win up to 1,000 Superpoints. After any given referral has earned you 1,000 points, you will no longer be able to earn from them.
My Honest Opinion of Super Points So Far
I like that this site is kind of different and that you can redeem for such large amounts of Paypal cash if you want. All I’ve really done so far is open my Super Points emails and occasionally log in and press the Super Lucky button. I think I’ve watched a video or two as well, but I don’t think I’ll be doing that all that much because the videos are too long for no more points than they give you for watching them.
I received my first SuperPoints Amazon Gift Code via email! Took them about a week to send it after I requested it. You can see the screenshot here for proof:
