Putting Your Survey Rewards to Good Use – Fun BBQ and Picnic

Putting Your Survey Rewards to Good Use – Fun BBQ and Picnic

Category: Tips and Tricks
by

A few weeks back we had a post about barbeque side dishes you can make for less than $25 (which just happens to be the minimum redemption level for PointClub Rewards). People voiced a lot of interest in the recipes, especially as summer in the Northern Hemisphere is in full swing. This time, we thought we’d offer some “barbeque enhancing” goodies you might want to pick up before your next party.

Summertime Picnic

All links are to Amazon, since it’s the most common online retailer in the world.

Inflatable Palm Tree Cooler

This inflatable palm tree doubles as an ice holder and drink cooler. And stores away easily when the party is over.

Corn-on-the-Cobb Butter Spreader with cover

Mmmm… the buttery, salty goodness of corn on the cob. This hand little butter holder lets you spread your butter easily and cap it when you’re done.

Fireside Roasting Tongs

Roast your marshmallows or cook your hot dogs with these telescoping, rotating forks.

20 Piece Barbeque Grill Utensil set

Includes spatula, tongs, fork, meat knife, skewers, corn cob holders, basting brush, and cleaning brush… all in their own storage case.

Set of 6 Mesh Food Tents

Keep away pets who want to crash your barbeque with this set of six 17” x 17” easy pop-up mesh tents to place over your food. Reusable and collapsible.

Did any of our suggestions spark some ideas? We hope so. Here at PointClub, we’re happy to help by offering you this extra cash option. Not with PointClub yet? We invite you to sign up. We’re not the only survey site out there, but we endeavor to set ourselves apart.

  • We grant signup bonuses and extra points for completing your initial panelist dossier.
  • We have one of the lower payout thresholds at $25, which you can take as payment to a Paypal account or through a variety of gift card offers.
  • We give away points every day via our Facebook page. Don’t leave out that daily checkin!
  • Seriously, where else are you going to get to work with superheroes?

Taking surveys to make extra cash is a great way to have that extra spending money for things you love. Like celebrating the halfway point between Christmas and… well… Christmas. Are you that person who thinks peppermint hot chocolate and sugar cookies are never ‘seasonal?’ Or whose spirit lifts hearing Bing Crosby croon White Christmas?

Then this list of items under $25 might be your go-to self-gifting shopping spree.

The links below are for Amazon, since it’s pretty much the number one shopping spot online for most people. Is anyone surprised they actually have items tagged for Christmas in July?

What’s Christmas without decorating the house? This isn’t Clark Griswold level, but it’s a start!

Welcome to PointClub’s Renovated Headquarters!

Welcome to PointClub’s Renovated Headquarters!

by

PointClub’s command center has been renovated! All the important stuff is still there, but we have added – and will continue to add – some new and fun features. We figure if you’re going to be completing surveys to earn those points for payout, you might as well have fun while you do it. Right? Right? Right!

PCHQ Reveal Banner

DailySweeps ShoutBox Up Front and (slightly right of) Center!

Are you one of our members who wait with great anticipation for the DailySweeps code to be posted to Facebook? (Hint: If you don’t, you should.) We’ve made the DailySweeps ShoutBox easy to spot and available on each page of the renovated site. Check out the “Stuff you Might Like” sidebar and that DailySweeps ShoutBox is right at the top.

Just copy and paste that code each day, and “like” the original post on Facebook, and you might win 1,000 points!

Speaking of “Stuff You Might Like”

That handy dandy sidebar offers a wealth of information and fun! You should note that the content when you’re on your Missions page is different than the content when you’re on your PointBank page.

What might you find there? So glad you asked!

  • Highlighted storylines from our Member GuideBook. Learn the Origin of Captain PC. Learn who the heck Dennis the Overseer might be. And did you know Penny Wise and Lady PC are one in the same?
  • Links to Tips and Tricks, either in our Member GuideBook or the PointClub blog!
  • Spotlights on some of your Reward options. You can receive payout via directly to Paypal or select from our variety of gift card options.
  • Current and past quizzes to do for fun (and maybe even points!)

The sidebar is updated each week! We shift around content and add new things.

Access the Member GuideBook from any page!

Wherever you might be on the PointClub site, you can easily access the updated Member GuideBook. Check out the bottom left corner. Click on that icon and page one of the GuideBook will open for you. What might you find here?

  • The Super-Powered World of PointClub. What is a survey distress signal? How do missions work to save the world from the chaos of not knowing? Learn that here.
  • Guidelines, Rules, and Tips. Learn to be the best survey superhero you can be. Know what to do, how to do it, and all the while avoid the downfalls and temptations of Super Villains!
  • Every Superhero has an origin story, and at PCHQ we have plenty of superheroes. Learn where they came from and why they do what they do.

Easy to Find and Utilize Help Center

We are here to help, and we’re making it easier for you to find the information you need. On any page of the site, check out the bottom right corner for the Help Center. Here you can read a variety of Frequently Asked Questions to help you in your superhero journey.

Can’t find what you need? Have a specific question on your account? You can send an email to help@pointclub.com or use the contact form available in the Help Center.

These updates are just the beginning. As we add more elements we’ll be sure to keep everyone updated. We want to be THE BEST survey site, and we’re working hard to get there. We’ll cover more features and new additions in the coming weeks.
