Yep, DH's account and mine were both closed within the last day or two. We both emailed. DH received a response but I haven't yet.

If you emailed, you can expect to receive something like this:

wow that stinks especially since I do not do anything but shop and click on their emails. Well glad I turned in most of my points and got my gift cards last week. I think its kind of wrong. Maybe they are running into economic hardships too.

Yes both mine and DH's were canceled as well...and I am on a paid click site and several people there got theirs canceld as well. Form what we can tell (one girl called them) when we do paid offers, alot of times one of the offers is Mypoints and they send you an email welcoming you...even if you didn't hit anything that says my points in the offer...well mypoints is considering that as opening new accounts. Even though you have never confirmed it. The girl said they told her she had 180 opened accounts. the thing is DH doesn;t do those offers, so I have no idea why his would be closed too.
What makes me mad is I had over 3000 points saved since X-mas, and I think DH had around 2000. All gone!

Same thing here ... I never checked 'yes' for mypoints when doing offers elsewhere. They must not want anyone doing offers anywhere else. Just not right. :confused3

What ticks me off even more is their attitude about it. My husband and I each emailed a response back to the standard email they sent us that I posted above asking for an explanation pertaining specifically to our accounts from a real person instead of a standard email that they send to all people who inquire. I even explained that I think there must be some sort of glitch with their advertising methods which is signing people up for extra accounts without their consent. However, after being a member for all these years without any issues, they couldn't even give me the courtesy of looking into the issue and instead sent back another standard response that they send out to everyone who questions account closures a second time. My husband doesn't even do any other programs so I don't see how he could possibly have more than one account, however, my husband and I each received this response.

    I really don't know much about sunshie, other than I have heard people complain alot about them here. Is it like Mypoints? What I like about mypoints is very little work involved. The emails come I click and earn points. I don;t do alot of shopping, so I didn't get many points that way.

    I wish I could complain about them but I can't. I rave about them. They are so user friendly so willing to help so great. I love using them. I have been a member there for several years, never had a complaint, and made well over $2000. I am not the only one on here that will tell you the same.

    So do they send emails like mypoints? I am already on a offer site that I like, so I do all the offers there. And like I said, I don't do alot of shopping, so I won't earn points/money that way either.

    I would. Especially if you do any other kind of offer/ paid click site. Someone I was talking to thinks they have new "equipment" and have been checking IP's and such, and if it's repeated, they are canceling. Of course, sine they won't respond to me...who knows.

    Yep, I just checked and my account was cancelled with that exact same reasoning, too. I just started up with simplegpt in the last couple of weeks and I noticed I was getting a lot of mypoints emails with that. It's kind of annoying because I did a lot of online shopping before christmas and went thru mypoints for the credits. I didn't have a lot but I know I had enough for a $10 gift card at least. How rude!!

    You are right ... it is rude. That's why I'm staying only with my two favorites (simplegpt and fairytaletreasure.com). Both have low minimums and pay instantly. No worries about losing money after all that hard work.

    Same exact thing happened to me. And, I never clicked on any MyPoints in the offers. I got alot of emails though, but never clicked the link to verify. My guess is sometimes they aren't worded in the midst of offers specifically as MyPoints.

    I think some of those that just ask "Would you like more info on earning blah blah by doing blah blah" will do it. So bogus because I only said yes to receive more info. If they had just been honest and not some sort of bait question and just said do you want to join MyPoints I would have checked off No.

    Off to do some shopping on SR, I have a back child support check burning a hole in my pocket :laughing: (Not really going nuts, just getting dd some things promised we'd get when it was received, that we consider "splurges").
