Viggle - your rewards?

What is the best reward you have received so far from Viggle? How much have you cashed in? Are you saving for a bigger reward?

Slowly adding to my points. Just curious how others are doing with it.

I cashed mine in for a $5 Starbucks gift card. I have a Starbucks right near my office, so it makes for a nice treat I wouldn't spend money on normally.

This was the first reward I cashed in.

I keep hoping for one of their Holiday deals on Lowes/Best Buy/Chilis or something.....

So far I've not cashed in any pts and have about 165K -- after only doing it for 2 1/2 months.

I do not save up rewards either. Especially since they keep upping how much each reward costs.

I do the starbucks reward, and transfer the balance to my registered Starbucks gift card. That way I don't have to explain to some cashier about a printer paper gift card, or several little cards.

What do you find is the "fastest" way to earn points. Do you find the longest show during the day and then do the bonus points for the evening? Just curious on people's "strategies"

I started Viggling in February right around the Grammy's. I took a long break for a while after the show point bonuses dropped dramatically. Now I've started up again because I have a nook and I want some B&N gift cards.

I added my rewards and I've gotten $125 in Starbucks gift cards, $100 in ITunes, and 4 Fandango movie tickets (value of $12 each) so worth $48. So, close to $275 in rewards. Not bad!

I tend to cash out my points asap so I don't save for the big things. The only way I save points is when the reward I want isn't available.

Check into 12 hours of shows per day. I find long movies, sports events, etc.

I check into the bonus shows at night. You only need to be checked in for 10 minutes to receive the bonus. (I check in for 11 to be sure.)

Play quizzes and watch videos.

I haven't added it up but I've gotten lots of gift cards. Back in august I cashed out for close to $300 in best buy and in return it paid for my Disney tickets. I also got a few gift cards for chilis and burger king that we used while at Disney.

Me too. Once they dropped the points it wasn't worth it. We did managed to cash in well over $400 in GCs during the couple months we did it though. I still have a Sephora GC and an ON GC.

I do MyPoints too but figured I would try Viggle. Already passed 7000 points.

As to taking up too much time, I'm not sure I understand. If the TV is on, the points are free with practically no effort. What am I missing?

Originally you could earn $5/day. Once they dropped the point values you start to base your time spent off what you used to be able to earn. So it seems like a lot more work for less reward.
