Thread Details

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

If you've looked at this thread, found it valuable and decided to join Recyclebank, consider asking someone here first for a referral to join email so that they may earn some points - a great way to join the community and get started! Thanks for the idea MJLouise.

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

https://www.facebook.com/RecycleBank

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."

now some things like the coupons are so many per household/per month....does that mean for other things, it is one per account/person? people with large families would be interested to know....

oh yes, and it seems it limits you when inviting to only 300 points....

I did an account for me at my business address and an account for my husband at my home address. The Coke coupons, for example, I redeemed 10 per account since they had a 10 limit.

Good to know about the 300 limit for invites. That is per account though, they can still add up if you have multiple. Plus the other ways! Smilie

ahhhh, I found why...

There is a 300 point per week limit, excluding bonus points. (Those are on us :-)
that's total, including invites and everything.....so you can only earn 1 GC per month.....

That's good to know. I'm really in it for the Coke. If I can get 20 free 2 liters a month (both accounts), I'm a happy camper. I'll use the extras on Huggies coupons

Here's a way to get 300 quick points! Sign into Kashless, then go to rewards and click saved searches. You get 10 points for each saved search, and can earn up to 300 a week. The points take a day to show up in recyclebank.

They changed it. I just joined and created 4 searches, and I only got 5 points for the first search, nothing for the rest.

Info is here [kashless.org] on new points levels. Email invites are a whole 2 points now.
