I'm sitting on a $100 VISA GC that I received for taking part in an online focus group recently. I was planning on using it to buy a $100 Amazon GC anyways as there is something on there that I want to buy. So if I do this deal, I'll not only get my $100 Amazon GC that I wanted, but I'll get enough points from OpenSky to buy another one? I just want to make sure I'm getting this right before I pull the trigger.
no you'll get something from open sky + enough points to buy $100 Amazon GC

OpenSky points are different from Points earned in the MyPoints program and may not be used for MyPoints rewards.

From my calculations, you spend 100 on Opensky using the Mypoints promo - you get 15000 points.

A $50 JCPenney GC can be earned with 7100 points, or 14200 points total for $100 in JCPenney GCs.

On the flipside, a $100 total Banana Republic GC can be earned with 11850 points, leaving you with an extra 3250, which can be used for 2 $10 Gift cards to Boston Market.

The rewards and point levels vary on Mypoints, you'll have to think long and hard about whether or not the purchase at Opensky is going to really be worth it, because as cheap as I am, I'm having trouble finding anything I really value. Even the ipad cases are overpriced in my opinion.

Anyone finding any outstanding products?

Can anyone justify spending on OpenSky? It's so overpriced. What are some good 'deals' on the site?

This offer valid on purchases up to $500 per household. If you cancel, exchange or return your purchase, Points awarded for your original transaction will be deducted from your account.

Points are available until 9/30/12, or until the maximum number of Points have been claimed. Once the maximum number of Points have been claimed, the offer will no longer be available and you will be directed back to the MyPoints website.

Your Points will be credited within 30 days of completing the transaction.

OpenSky points are different from Points earned in the MyPoints program and may not be used for MyPoints rewards.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

so the points will post after 30days and points expire after 9/30/12...

Not a chance, the only way you get either is going through their portal.

I bought the Kegerator for $450. Will be able to get most of it back I assume through GC's.

How do you figure? As best I can tell you are earning opensky points not MyPoints, per the terms copied in the above comments.

I think mypoints just get you some insider-access to events and stuff, nothing meaningful. Correct me if i'm wrong though.

You can also get $10 credit and free shipping with open sky at Offers.com [offers.com]
I kinda found something that can be resold but the price is too high to justify it

Some credit terms from opensky

What are OpenSky credits and how do I use them?
OpenSky offers two types of credits: General Credits and Spotlight Credits. A General Credit is money you can use toward the purchase of any product on OpenSky. A Spotlight Credit is money you can use toward the purchase of a specific product chosen by OpenSky.

When you check out, any credits you have will automatically be deducted from your purchase total. Just keep in mind that the grand total of your transaction must equal $50 or more for the credit to apply. This includes tax and shipping costs. OpenSky credits have expiration dates, but you can always check those dates in the Credit section of your account profile so you don't lose out!

How to earn OpenSky credits?
You can earn OpenSky credits:
#1 If a friend buys something and you're connected to them through Social Media you get a $5 credit good for 48 hours. (Please note that you may do this by enabling the Social Shopping Feature on your account: https://opensky.com/account)
#2 If you invite a friend and they purchase something you get a $10 dollar credit. Your friend also gets a $10 credit for joining plus free shipping for a week. You will also get a $5 credit because of the credit rule in #1
#3 You get a $5 credit that will appear as a discount for sharing a product (excluding Must-Haves) with 3 people from a product page (this posts the product on your Facebook wall). The credit expires end of day the next day.
And you should also keep shopping with us! We like to surprise our loyal members with free credit.
