Advantages get rewarded for your regular internet usage
Disadvantages easy to get carried away and spend more than you would have!
I took the initial profile survey which gave me a few points, but then stupidly wasted them on a spin the wheel game (which I lost!). I answered all the little surveys at the bottom of the page for 5 points a go (I find the answers a little one-sided..."Am I looking for a new conservatory... with options of "already got one", or "looking for one" - but no option for "I live in a 2nd floor flat, why would I want a conservatory?").Since then I've been doing the least amount of effort possible and seeing whether I can collect the points just by carrying on my regular shopping habits (not, how they hope, by encouraging you to shop more!) and even though my points total has been quite low there are a few little nuggets in the rewards list such as £10 vouchers for stores such as Argos, Sainsburys etc. I find these vouchers much more valuable than an old DVD which I have not bought already because I didn't want to see it in the first place...not much of a reward if you ask me!
Despite the blatant marketing approach and poor selection of rewards, I recommend signing up to ipoints if you're a medium to heavy internet user and get rewarded for just doing what you would normally be doing anyway. I know I've rated it in the middle for most of the criteria below, but so long as you use it right, you'll win out of it.My recommendations:
