Note: This is only for new Plink.com registrations.
A few weeks ago I posted about an opportunity to spend $20 IN STORE at The Gap or Old Navy and get enough points to redeem for a $20 gift card at a variety of merchants (i.e., Amazon.com, Zappos, Walmart, etc.). This is through a website called Plink.com which I’ve written about before. You can learn more about this site and the various ways to earn points here. UPDATE: Plink is currently having an issue with some of the gift card redemption options. The vendor that supplies many of the cards is down, but you’ll be able to redeem shortly!
How this works:
- Sign up for Plink here for the $20 Gap or Old Navy promotion (make sure when signing up it states the $20 promotion – if you simply go through Plink.com and register you will not be registered for the promotion!)
- Link your credit card to your Plink account – I know many do not trust this concept so the choice is yours
- Add the merchant you’ll be shopping at to your Plink Wallet account (in this case add both Old Navy and Gap)
- Shop IN STORE at the Gap or Old Navy by end of day TODAY and spend $20 or more in a single transaction on your registered credit card (gift card purchases count as well if there is nothing specific you want to purchase today)
In my experience the points have taken about a week to post, and they all did post – no follow up was needed! At this point you can cash out those points for a $20 gift card for the following: iTunes, Tango card (which can then be redeemed at many merchants such as: Target, Home Depot, Pottery Barn and REI, etc.), Amazon.com, Walmart, Kohl’s, Barnes & Nobles, Overstock.com, and Zappos. I personally have cashed out thus far at Amazon.com and it has been an extremely easy process. The certificate took about a day to be emailed to my account (so keep that time table in mind when redeeming).
I know many commented last time that only 500 points posted and not the full 2,000 points. Bonus points take around 7-10 business days to be posted after the regular points are posted. If you have waited that long and still haven’t received your bonus points, send me a note and I’ll directly put you in touch with Plink.
Let me know if you have any questions! I personally like the Plink concept and love that I can now get points for my in-store purchases.
Note: The Plink link listed is a special referral link. Make sure when registering the promotion is marketed on the sign up page. Personal referral links and just going to Plink.com will not register you in the specific promotion.
