    I'm pretty much done with the rewards for our trip. I don't think I will be able to get enough points anywhere to cash out again and receive it before we leave, so here is my final tally. There have been 4 of us working a little over a year for the trip, only 3 of us are going.

    With Webcertficates and cash from freeride, blink, suzykats, mypoints, searchcactus, netflip, and various surveys we got:
    3 parkhopper plus passes = $750
    Paid on all stars ressie = $378 (this is paid off, we now are starting on paying off the AKL part)
    Various disney items from gifts of a lifetime and ebay = $250
    1 Cirque Du Soleil = $72
    Disney Club Memebership = $39 (I think this was 39 but it has been a while since we ordered it. Also, this has saved us over $300 in discount ressies, so IMO it is worth the money.)

    Greenpoints
    $85 Burger King for the drive down and back

    Etour
    $125 Pizza Hut

    Beenz & Suzykats
    $329 Disney Dollars

    Milesource & My Points
    $300 Rain Forest Cafe
    $50 Planet Hollywood
    $70 Olive Garden
    $50 Ghirardelli
    $50 Bath and Body Works (shhh, don't tell anyone LOL!)
    $100 Gas Cards

    Erewards and Nestle Rebate
    15 thirty minute calling cards
    2 twenty minute calling cards


    I also have a $5 Domino's Pizza gc that for the life of me I don't know where it came from:p And I have a $10 Hard Rock gc

    So that brings our total too:
    $2663!!!!!!!!:D :D :D :D :D

    The best part of all of this is, even while doing all of these programs, getting all of this stuff in the mail, we have been able to keep the trip a secret from our 9 year old daughter. It is her 10th birthday present. I honestly never thought that we would all be able to keep it a secret for this long, but by golly we have done it!!

    That is definitely an inspiration to keep working at this - I've only been doing it for a month - can you be a little more specific on how you accumulated some of those points? Did you purchase a lot on the web?Any additional info you can give me would be great!

    Thanks! I had to wait until my daughter went to bed before I could come back to this thread, LOL, I'd hate for her to slip and read all of this over my shoulder LOL.


    jabrown40,
    I really can't think of anything that I purchased for points. When we first started clicking for the trip, the rewards programs were booming. With the magic bus at freeride, you could cash out for a $10 webcertificate every 4 days. With 4 of us in the house doing it, that was over $40 a week. Beenz were everywhere, so that helped a lot with the disney dollars. Also, mypoints, used to they had tons of weekly points, it was easy to get a gas card in a month with them. With milesource, we got some points when powerdime closed and they let us have our powerdime account with them and then our regular account too. If you clicked all of the links in clickfix you would get a 25 point bonus each day. For a while, with my referals I was getting 150 points a day there.

    Another thing, the redemption levels were much lower then. When the programs started slowing down, all of the companies raised the amount needed to cash out.

    WOW!!! Dana, I am truly inspired! Even my DH was impressed! He's usually a little cynical about it when I prod him into doing rewards, so it was fun to show him how they could add up! :D Hope you have a great trip! :sunny: Time to start working towards the next one. ;)

    Wow,
    I was just going to post and ask about how much could my wife and I get rewarded for? I am assuming if it was just the two of us and the rewards have slowed we'd be closer to $400 each? Does that seem reasonable?
