Have you heard of MyPoints?

It’s a cash-back site that pays you to print coupons and shop online. We love it around here — it’s an instant way to save on everything you buy.

Next time you plan to shop online, use MyPoints to get this awesome deal: Spend $20, and get a free $10 gift card for The Home Depot!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up for MyPoints here (you just need to give them a name and email address).
  1. MyPoints instantly sends an email to confirm your email address — you’ll need to click it to get the free gift card.
  1. Lastly, you’ll need to purchase $20 worth of products online through the MyPoints shopping portal. MyPoints will reward you with 1,750 bonus points, which you can then redeem for a $10 Home Depot gift card.

Use MyPoints to Save Money on Home Improvement

Almost any shopping counts toward points for your $10 reward, so MyPoints can help you save money on just about anything you want to buy this summer.

As an example, look how you can use MyPoints to save money on a weekend home improvement project — like staining your deck.

  1. Buy two cans of oil-latex redwood stain for about $10 each on HomeDepot.com through MyPoints. Choose in-store pickup for free shipping.
  1. Earn reward points for your purchase. MyPoints offers two points per dollar at The Home Depot — 1.4% cash back.
  1. Claim your $10 Home Depot gift card to use on your next purchase.
  1. Pay with your cash-back credit card, like the Barclaycard Rewards Mastercard, which will earn you another 1% in cash rewards.
  1. Use the gift card next time you shop The Home Depot through MyPoints for yet another 1.4% off!

That’s a total of $30 in home improvement supplies for just $19.38 — equal to 35% off!

The Fine Print

This offer is available to all new members.

You need to join MyPoints now and spend $20 on any shopping or travel within 30 days. You’ll be awarded 1,750 points, redeemable for a $10 gift card of your choice.

After shopping, rewards points will appear in your account within 30 days, but it usually takes less than five business days.

If you request a physical gift card, it should arrive in the mail within two weeks — and e-gift cards show up in your inbox within 30 minutes.
