Recyclebank.com offers a great reward program for recycling (thanks to nicemann for introducing this a few weeks ago). Just for signing up and using a promo code that was posted here a few weeks ago, I just received 20 coupons for $1 off Coke, so since my grocery store sells 2 liters for $1, I'm basically getting 20 free 2 liters! Smilie I also got a $5 off Huggies coupon. Smilie

If you don't live in an area that participates, you can still sign up for a free account and earn rewards in other ways. I just stumbled upon a linked site called Kashless.org. They offer a forum to post and search for free items in your area. You can earn Recyclebank points in various ways on this site. The fastest way I've found to earn points is by inviting friends (i.e. submitting an email address). You earn 20 Recycle Bank points for each email addy you provide. I earned 240 points in under a minute. Smilie This will get me 24 free 2 liters of Coke! Smilie They have all kinds of things to redeem your rewards on, even gift cards for Walmart, Home Depot, iTunes & more!

So here's what you need to do...

1. Sign up for a RecycleBank.com [recyclebank.com]account. You'll get 100 free points for signing up!
2. Sign up for a Kashless.com account.
3. You'll then link your Kashless account [kashless.org] to your Recyclebank account by clicking on the Rewards section.
4. You'll also see in that section a link to all the ways you can earn points on Kashless. Like I said, emailing is the fastest, but you can also create saved searches, post items, create your profile, among other things.
5. It takes about 24 hours for your points to show up in your Recyclebank account. You can then redeem your points on the Recyclebank site. I got my reward coupons in the mail in about 2 weeks.

Happy Shopping!

**UPDATE-Kashless no longer participating in Recycle Bank, but Recycle Bank is still a go!**

Point Expiration

Q: Will my Recyclebank Points expire?
A: As long as your Recyclebank account is active at least once every twelve (12) months (meaning there's some points-earning or points-spending), your points won’t expire. You’ll continue to accrue points month-to-month and year-to-year, so you can use them for that perfect little something.

Referrals


Alternative Method: (earn referral credits without harassing friends directly) Post 2625

Exchange Rate

As of 6/12/13:
1250-1500 pts = $5 - determined by gift cards
1 point = .004 cents

Exclusive Rewards

Home Recycling Rewards

"Recyclebank partners with communities and waste haulers around the country to reward residents like you for recycling. We work with communities to find out how much recyclable material was collected. The collective weight is then converted to Recyclebank points and shared amongst all of the residents in the community that recycled. So, the more everyone recycles, the more points you earn!"

https://www.recyclebank.com/how-t...cling-3232

If you are in an area with Home Recycling, an orange banner saying "Don't miss out on even more points!" should appear at the top of your page. In addition, if you are eligible to get rewards for recycling at home, you should receive a letter from RB with your PIN, located in the upper right-hand corner.

If you think you are in an eligible area, but don't have a PIN, you can look up your address here (this link will only work if you're in an eligible area):
https://www.recyclebank.com/curbs...le/lookup/

"Want to bring recycling rewards to your community? Let your voice be heard. Download one of our letters for your city or your hauler. You could also contact your city through Facebook or Twitter to ask them to sign up for our recycling rewards program."

Its been spreading throughout everyone. You have to go to recyclebank and not log on, then you will see the pledge on the left hand side. When you click on the pledge it takes you to the login screen and you can log on then and it awards the points.

I sent an email some time ago about this. They have not done a thing to change it. Why would a pledge not be available to a registered member who is logged in, but is otherwise available when not logged in? Confused Makes no sense whatsoever.

I think the problem with the daily pledge is that you have to login more than 24 hours after your last pledge... and since I can't be bothered to check how long has it been - I just log in every other day now and it's always available now for me... if I log in every day - sometimes it's there, sometimes it isn't depending whether it's been 24 hours or not...

You may be right - many other earning opportunities on RB require a 24h interval to get points again. I will monitor the daily pledge and report back. Thanks for the suggestion and repped!

Check your emails if you joined eco insiders. I got an email saying they were closing it and in appreciation they enclosed a code for 100 points.

Question: I purchased an Amazon eGift Card with RB Pts. It's been over 7 days and I have not received it. I looked around on RB, and in the FAQ they indicate to look in your spam folder (I did) and if it's not there (it's not) to contact them (I did).

Anyone else have this experience? How was it resolved?

Thanks

It's been a while, but I think it took longer than that for my Amazon eCard to arrive. You might want to wait another week before emailing them.

Well, the website says you'll receive it in your email within 5 to 7 days of ordering. So, after 7 days passed and nothing had I arrived - I sent a message to RB.

I was just wondering if anyone else has had experience with not receiving the eGift card and what RB did about it.
