Update: Their servers are having trouble keeping up with everyone who wants coupons! Try back later today or tomorrow and hopefully it’ll be working.

There are two new opportunities to earn points on Recyclebank, which of course leads to more great coupons!
Brita Recyclebank Video

To get 105 New Recyclebank Points:

  1. Login to your Recyclebank account
  2. Click the “Earn Points” tab and watch the Brita Video for 25 Points
    (There may be others that you haven’t earned yet too!)
  3. Then head to the Green Your School Year contest to earn 80 points on the After School section by taking pledges and quizzes.
  4. Redeem your newly earned points for awesome coupons!!

          Just got in and got all my points .. thanks!

    • Thanks for sharing. I got a message stating the server was too busy at this time. I will keep trying today.

      • It happens EVERY time they have a new thing with a lot of points. They need a bigger server!

      I just started an account to print my $10 off $50 coupon for Staples. They would not take it. The manager tried to enter in the numbers manually several different ways but it would not work. I didn’t press the issue (was getting 100% back in rewards) but now don’t trust RecycleBank. Anyone else have this problem and anyone know why?

        I’ve never had a problem. I’ve gotten Harris Teeter coupons, aveeno coupons, vegetable coupons… Never had a problem with any.

          I have never had a problem with any.  I would suggest contacting Staples Corporate.  I expect the problem is with Staples rather than Recycle Bank.

      I was able to get the 25 points from Brita… but then the server went  down :(

      I had to lie on the Brita one though, I don’t use plastic water bottles, but when asked how many I use a week I couldn’t enter 0. I already have a brita and reusable water bottles. So I guess my pledge is just to keep on doing what I’m doing!

        The Green Your School After School portion still says its coming soon…

        • Pdms3

          mine too.

      • I had the same problem! We never buy water bottles and havent in YEARS because we got a water softener. So its like Yelling at me, you spent $52 on water bottles last year! ROFL

      Server seems okay for now. I got the Brita points but the After School section is still showing “coming soon” for me. I’ll check back maybe in a day or two. Was anyone else able to do the After School?

      The Green Your School After School portion still says its coming soon… Heyy Guys, I just got a $829.99 iPåd2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HDTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prices at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HDTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for.
      I use BÏDFiRsT. COM
