Giving Newcomer Plink A Whirl

Ready to try another reward program?  I’m willing to give Plink a whirl despite having flashbacks to disastrous Envaulted. (See Envaulted thread at Fatwallet for details.)

Plink

Plink is a free rewards program that allows you to earn points for purchases at participating restaurants, theaters and gas stations such Arby’s, Burger King and 7-Eleven. Earned points can be redeemed for gift cards to pretty decent places like Amazon and Home Depot.

Rumor has it that a specialty home goods retailer, a gift business, a rental car firm and travel related business will join Plink network.

How To Sign Up With Plink

  1. Go to Plink
  2. Enter your name and email address to create an account
  3. Link a credit or debit card
  4. Add offers for retailers (7-Eleven, Burger, etc.) to your account to earn Plink Rewards Points that are redeemable toward gift cards.

Plink Rewards – Gift Cards

Earn rewards or Plink points every time you eat at one of the restaurants that you’ve unlocked. Just 500 points can be used toward a $5 gift card to one of the following:

  • Amazon
  • Wal-Mart
  • Facebook (Do people pick this one?)
  • Tango
  • Home Depot
  • iTunes

My Sign Up Experience

Sign up took a minute using Mr. MoneyMap’s referral link, which gave him 100 points. (Note: Plink FAQ state 10 points can be earned for each referral, however, a separate email reveal 100 points as a bonus for each referral.)

Fortunately I didn’t have time to register a credit or debit card. A few hours I began my sign up, I received an email from Plink offering $5 gift card to a choice of retailers for registering a card. So I linked a credit card that I rarely use, and then picked an Amazon gift card as my bonus.)

Takeaway

Plink’s promotion won’t fill your wallet with cash or gift cards, but it only takes a minute to sign up and they allow for more than one account. (In other words, rinse and repeat.)  Moreover, Plink can be stacked with credit reward programs and other promotions like AMEX Sync to boost your savings.

Personal Note to Plink

Boost your sign up bonus to get more users.   Although I linked a credit card that I rarely use, typically I need a more profitable opportunity before I allow a company to access my credit card spend, user ID and password.
