Recyclebank is at it again this time with a Green Your School Year contest.  Each time they run a new contest that means more chances for you to earn points.  The more points you earn, the more awesome coupons you can get!!  My favorite is the $2 off any Kashi product.

Earn 115 new points today:

  1. Register/log in to RecycleBank.
  2. Click on the Green Your School Year Challenge.
  3. Scroll down through “your day” and click on the little buttons that pop up.

After you earn your points, you can save them and keep earning with the two more parts of the contest that will open soon, or you can use them right now to order coupons and other prizes.

      I am upset! I don’t see the Harris Teeter $10 off $50 coupon as a reward anymore. Did they take it off?

      • Sigaduro

        I justs looked for it as well. I think it comes and goes. i guess we just save up our points and will be able to earn a couple at once. Last time i got 2 at the same time. Jenny is pretty good at announcing when it comes back up on Recyclebank website.

      Unless they changed it, you can actually get 125 poits. 105 from the “game” and an additional 20 when you submit your own ideas at the end. It makes you think that you have to win first place or be chosen  to get them, but they were credited right after I hit submit

        Where are the 105 from the game? I only got 95 from the game, plus the additional 20. 

        • At least you got something. I got 0.

    • Getter

      ahhh your right! bummer that was the only one i really used to get

      This is a little unrelated but has anyone ever tried putting in the the codes for ziploc bags? I put the only code I could find in the box and it says it’s not valid. Am I missing something?

      • Sregis0628

        I have….I know that only the newer boxes that actually have a particular recycling sign on it works

      i didn’t get credit for one of the pledges and it won’t give me credit for both of them.

      I am not understanding the game at all–actually it may be a browser issue. I’m using Chrome and maybe the hotspots don’t show. I’ll try on IE. I got NO points when I scrolled through the game and there were no “hot spots.”

      how does recyclebank work?  i can’t seem to find a clear explanation on the site.  for example… this week at cvs honest tea has a @ee9e3ef9d0d5428e9b5cff0f902e50e3:disqus 1 recyclebank matched with it on here. what does that mean.  how do you get it?  coupon?

    • Sshull1

      Can’t seem to collect my points. Anybody else having trouble?

      • I am.

      • Sdanorth

        I always have to re-enable popups each time I go back.

    • Recyclebank web site is the most confusing and never works properly.

    • Try to use Internet Explore and enable the pop-up windows.
