Over the last few weeks I’ve had a lot of people asking me about a site called PointsPrizes, that has been giving out free Playstation codes, as well as PayPal and Bitcoin. Many people want to know whether the site is fake or not, so I decided to give the site a test for myself to see if they were legit or not.
As far as first impressions go, I was very impressed with their interface. It’s very easy to use and I was able to get started within minutes. The way the site works is that you earn points and once you have enough points you can claim some cool prizes:
The key thing to remember about PointsPrizes is that there are actually four ways to earn points:
- Offer Points – You get these by completing offers such as surveys or submitting your email for something.
- Referral Points – You get these for referring new members to the site.
- Bonus Points – These are earned during the beginning just for attempting to complete offers.
- Coupon Points – You can earn some extra points in the beginning by finding coupons.
I would say out of these the Offer points are easy to earn if you live in the United States. Otherwise I would try and earn Referral Points because that can be extremely lucrative.
Is PointsPrizes a fake site or not?
First I claimed a $25 PayPal payment to see if PointsPrizes would send me cash and this was the result. As you can see, I managed to get payment proof that the site does work:
Later I also claimed a PSN code and I got an email with a working gift code. I should warn you though that they only send US gift codes so you should try to get paid in cash if you live elsewhere. But all of their codes are legit.
Why do some say the site is fake then?
Whenever someone fails at something they tend to complain and say there was some cheating involved. Usually because they lack the resolve to persist with something.
It is true that some of the offers do not convert always, but that is not the fault of PointsPrizes. Instead it’s the fault of the advertising companies they work with. You will find the same is true of any survey website on the internet.
