    Lately I've just been letting this site go. I usually can get my To-Do list done, I run a few auto videos while I do something else, try a survey here and there. Then I'm done. Too much time spent for a penny here and there. I click whatever boxes on the Bingo board that I see are in rows or columns that I have a chance at making, otherwise I don't bother. Last time I managed the 100 points, the time before that I think all I got was 15 or something idiotic.

    I still manage a couple $25 Walmart gift cards a month, sometimes more. We make our monthly trip to Walmart for all the stuff we know is cheaper there than anywhere else and they come in handy.

    I don't see any other sites that are offering anything better than MP and SB -- all the same "buy, buy, buy". No fun any more.

    Although that may not be correct. After my mom retired she volunteered in a school for years during the 90's and early 2000's and she kept wanting to help kids correct their grammar and was told they don't do that anymore. She asked when they learned grammar and the answer was, they are supposed to pick it up from reading.

    Did you see on the Bingo Board that the center spot is a Magic Receipt -- but when I didn't get credit for mine I went back and clicked on the "?" in the block. You have to submit a receipt worth 50 points to get credit. Same thing on Swagbucks.

    I'm outta here!

    Thanks for the heads up. I might buy some yogurt - maybe if everything else falls into place.

    Luckily I bought Energizer MAX batteries to restock my drawer (2 packs=850 pts). One pack had rebate information, so I'm getting $5 back via PayPal. Spent $15.98, had $1 off coupon, making it $14.98. With the 850 points, I could get a $5 GC to eBay or Amazon (790 pts.), so I have a decent return on my purchase, I guess But it's crazy to have to jump through such hoops for Bingo.

    WTH!?

    How are we supposed to get 50 freaking points, when everything is 3 damn points!

    What a load of BS



    ETA: Wow. Just viewed the board, and what a joke! I can't complete ANYTHING!
    Every freaking ''visit'' box requires you to download SCORE. I'm not downloading anything from them.

    They said on the mp fb page that the magic receipts can add up to 50 points. But still, that's a lot of 3 pointers. LOL

    I can't ever remember turning in a Magic Receipt for 50 points except for something out of the ordinary. My regular grocery receipts are for everyday items worth 3pts each. And then they rejected some of my items, so they didn't even count. Waste of time.

    They've changed it because that's not what it said earlier.

    Now the square reads - Earn at least 50 points from a Magic Receipts Deal

    Edited to add: I submitted my receipt with batteries purchased (two packs for 850 points), and with other items - received credit for everything except gum. The 850 points for batteries shows up on my Account Statement, but the center square DID NOT check off as being completed. I even waited after the reset time (3 a.m. Eastern) to refresh the board, but it didn't change.

    I submitted the inevitable Help Ticket with screen shots of the points awarded, and the unchanged board. Let's see what happens...

    Oh, and I didn't get a confirmation email about my help ticket, but I did remember to create a copy in my email file. And it's showing up in my list of tickets.

    UPDATE:
    Logged in to MP today, and the middle square was marked as completed. I submitted my Bingo board right away for the 150 points.

    Never received an email that it had been adjusted. As long as it was corrected, I'm okay with that. BUT - I also went to my Help Ticket list to see if they had written any response, and the Help Ticket was GONE. So weird. Glad I made a record of submitting it.
