Gather Points™ program, a popular site feature that rewards members for creating great experiences for the community.

You can even redeem your points for cash through PayPal to buy the stuff you want most!

All I did was sign up for this because I read on someone’s blog that they make money at Amazon with Gather.com. I was thinking at the time, sign me up for that. Now, signing up is so easy. You get your verification link and your in (after filling out all the questions but it’s painless I promise). Then you just do stuff to earn points. One way could be to ask others to sign up.

The company recently announced that they’ve paid out more than $500,000 to members since the Gather Points program began. Since the start of 2009, members have redeemed over $85,000 in points they have put towards everything from home improvement projects and family vacations to summer fun for the kids.
“Gather Points have helped me buy the extra things that my kids have asked for without having to break the bank!” said Bridget A., a Gather Member who has earned $2,460 since joining the site in 2007. (http://cheekymommaof2.gather.com/) “I used my earnings from Gather Points to entirely fund our 2008 summer vacation to the Oregon Coast, where I also got to meet a fellow Gather member.”
So wow, I’m going to try and earn a few points and see if I can save my family some money by earning money.
