Are you holding out on joining Plink?  This is a rewards program that tracks your purchases and gives you points when you buy things from participating retailers. When you have 500 points you can get a $5 gift card to a number of places (Amazon, Walmart, iTunes etc.). Right now, you’ll earn 500 points just for signing up! That means an instant $5 gift card reward!!

For example:

We are traveling and ate dinner on the road at Burger King. I have them selected as one of my stores (you can select up to 5 at a time). So our dinner for six that cost $25.67 earned us 150 Plink points.

Then, at least once a week I head to Dollar General (it’s our closest store). When I spend $12 on a visit I earn another 125 points. You get the picture.

There is no limit on points you can earn per store. So over time our regular purchases are earning us gift cards! There is really no reason to not be earning these rewards, the program is completely FREE!

How do you earn 500 points just for signing up?

  1. Head over and get registered.
  2. Enter a credit or debit card (this is how they track your purchases to give you points/rewards).

It’s that easy!  You will receive your points within 2-5 days after successfully linking a card to your account.

      I just joined, but they did not ask for my card, they asked me to login to my bank from their site and choose which account I wanted to use… is that what you did, Jenny?

        I am wondering too. I haven’t completed my sign-up, because I don’t want to log into my account. Not sure how safe it is.

          I would never suggest giving your online banking log in to ANYONE. THAT GIVES ACCESS TO ALL YOUR FINANCIAL INFO

      • When I registered you linked your card number. I’ve been using it for a few months now though and haven’t had any issues. They also have a great rating with the BBB.

      joined, but didn’t see anything about the bonus 500 points for joining. I guess i’ll see in 2-5 days if it worked! thanks!

      Just can’t give my banking info, that’s too risky- not worth it to me. :(

    • Sonya

      I don’t want to give them my bank account information. Can’t they deposit the rewards into my paypal account like Ibotta does?

    • Kimberly Mann

      I looked at their partners, I do not shop at any of those places, so I guess I will pass

      I do not trust them at all. They might have a good rating with bbb now but when they get enough sign ups they could decide to take everyones money at one time and shut down.

      How do you receive the gift card? Is it electronic email or through the mail.

    • Terry

      not for me – I don’t want to give them my bank account information. They shouldn’t even ask for it. I would take this off the site.

    • Leah Lenk

      Didn’t work for me :( I only got 10 points for signing up.

    • Tylina

      I’ve been using them for almost 6 months now. They have never done anything to make me not trust them. I get credited just fine!
