Points are all limited in some way, to help prevent abuse (for example: people reporting false prices for more points).
We occasionally offer bonus points for completing certain tasks.
- Reporting Prices: 200 points per price up to a maximum of 1000 Bonus Points per day.
- Surveys: Amount of points specified at time of survey. You will earn the points by completing the survey by a certain date.
Bonus points awarded for surveys are only added to Unused Points as these bonus points were intended to be used in the daily gas card giveaway.
