Mobee: Site update and visit with the team

Turns out the team at Mobee works only a few blocks from where I work, so I popped over to say hello.  Nice crew, with an emphasis on technology.  They also gave me a preview of the app update that hit today.

The new update is one of the biggest improvements that they have made since the app launched.  Previously, there was only a map view.  Now, not only do you have the map, but you can sort by distance, point value and restaurant name.  It makes it a lot easier to determine which missions are right for you.

Pampers Points: 10 free points

One of these days, I'm going to be better about updating the site on the weekend.  Until then, I'll probably get beaten to these Pampers points.  Here's 10, if you haven't already gotten them, using code FBPA6XW7KRU8J13 

Pepsi Points: Better stuff, still stinks

H4F pointed me in the direction of Pepsi Points, which has upped the prizes, although they still stink.  I really don't want that bright yellow t-shirt.

The plus side is that they have also upped the amount of ways to earn points, making that ugly t-shirt easier to get.

Check it out here.

My Coke Rewards: 40 free points by signing up with Red Robin

For those of you in the know, Red Robin is a casual dining burger place.  And for those not in the know, Red Robin is a casual dining burger place.  But everyone should care because, by signing up for their loyalty program, you can get 40 free MCR points.  Check it out here.

Kellogg's Family Rewards: 50 points

Ah, Kellogg's, my old friend, home of the mostly useless points.  Thank you for my 50 free points, which I shall redeem here.  The code is SCHOLASTICSWEEPS.

My Coke Rewards Wednesday Deal: $30 jewelry gift card

This week's, er, "deal," is a $30 gift certificate to something called for jewelry.  So here's my question: the deal initally cost 70 points and was marked down to 30.  Since even the most expensive prizes have street value not much higher than $30, how much is this $30 really worth?  I'll leave that up to you.

Recyclebank: 300 points

The irony of Recyclebank is that they are trying to get us to use less paper, yet have one of the worst websites in history.  Nevertheless, if you can make it function better than I can, here are a few points freebies:

270 points for watching a quick slideshow and scrolling through a few clicks here.

30 points to learn about landfills here.

Okay, now get off the internet and go outside and play.  It's a beautiful day.

My Coke Rewards Wednesday Deal: $50 gift card

Today's MCR "deal" is a $50 gift card for 270 points.  I forbid you from purchasing it.  I absolutely forbid it.  There are far better ways to get these GCs and 270 points is still a rip-off, although less of one than the 600 points that MCR normally charges.

And now, a message from your sponsor...

I always like to help a Flyertalker whenever possible, particularly one who has a dog.  As an added bonus, it relates to Kimpton, one of my favorite hotel  chains.

So I ask you all to visit their website, look up Geno and place a vote for him by "liking" him.  Yes, you do need a FB account.

Thanks all.

First of the month! Stouffers, Pampers, My Coke Rewards, other tasks

Ah, my favorite freebie day of the month, the first.  As a certified geek, I have a reminder set up for the first of the month to make sure I do my "tasks" for the month.  They include:

1) 10 free points at Stouffer's for answering a few questions in the polls.  Also, make sure to check your dinner hub to see what your monthly offer is.  Mine is $1 off of two meals.

2) I try to put in a code for each My Coke Rewards account that I manage, just to keep the account going.  The points expire after a certain amount of inactivity.

3) If you are collecting Pampers Points for the special offers based on consecutive months of entries, now is a good time to enter one.  If you need points, check out Listia.

4) For those who are playing the miles game, don't forget to do your Amazon Payments transfer as well as a transfer to Bluebird to serve as your Direct Deposit for the month.
