Free Rewards for Recycling


I have seen the name Recyclebank floating around the internet and an occasional mention in a magazine for months but I never really checked it out.  Until now, appropriately just before Earth Day.

I wish I had checked it our sooner because it is pretty cool.

Here’s the deal…

You sign up with Recyclebank and take “green” actions, like a fun interactive quiz or recycle at home, to earn points. You then redeem those points for great FREE rewards.  That’s it, in a nutshell.

Some of the ways that you can earn points:
– Taking quizzes
– Making “green” pledges
– Reading and learning about Earth friendly topics
– Recycling
– Referring family and friends
– Purchasing Eco products
– Watching Videos

What rewards can you get for FREE?
FREE Walmart Gift Cards
FREE Best Buy Gift Cards
FREE Home Depot Gift Cards
FREE Magazine Subscriptions
FREE Earth Friendly Products – like a U Konserve Food Wrap
FREE Movie Ticket
FREE Amazon Gift Card
FREE Gallon of Milk
FREE Discount Certificates

You can get FREE rewards with as little as 10 points.  Obviously, the more desirable FREE items will be for more points.  For example, a FREE Magazine will be about 150 – 250 points and a FREE $10 Walmart Gift Card is 2500 points.

BUT – I did earn 220 points within about 5 minutes of joining!  It is really easy to earn a lot of points.  So, I could already get a FREE Magazine, but I would rather wait until I’ve collected enough points to get something more useful to me like a FREE Gift Card.

There are new point earning opportunities all the time.

All in all, I think Recyclebank is a great program.  It would be great to get kids involved as well so that they can learn about recycling and green living.

It’s a win-win-win – the Earth benefits, you benefit and the manufacturers that participate benefit.
