As I have blogged about before, I’m a big fan of MyPoints. It’s a very easy way to earn free gift cards. If you have not already signed up for MyPoints, send me an email and I’ll send you a sign up link to get you started.
For those who are already MyPoints members, you likely would have gotten a MyPoints email for Magazines.com yesterday with the subject “$5 Gift Card & 250-Point Bonus from Magazines” that contained a gift card code for $5 you can use on the Magazines.com site. I have learned that you can also redeem the gift card and have a check mailed to you for $5 if you don’t want to use it for a magazine purchase.
All you need to do is go to www.magazines.com/cash, fill out the form under “Redeem a Card for Cash” with your name, address, and gift card code from the email, and they should send you a check for $5. I did get an error trying to submit the form the first time where it said “invalid address”. There are two lines for you to input your mailing address, so I put the “Place” from my address on the second line and it went through fine.
