Anyone else who is posting like crazy to catch the loyalty points?

Some of us (not all????) seem to mysteriously get a load of loyalty points for gallery projects and MB posts this week. At first, I supposed it was an error and that 2 peas would swiftly rip the points from my account as soon as they discovered it. But by now it's been days, so maybe it's a "gift" or something?

I am active here regardless of me getting any points or not for posting, but I have to admit that I am replying to far more posts than usual, just to quickly fill up my quota of 60 posts a month before this "loyalty points bonanza" goes away. And, I uploaded the 13 projects that are eligible for points each month and got thousands of points.

I'm not even sure that I will use the points, I haven't been shopping here for over a month, and additionally with the increased international shipping rates, I don't know if I ever will, but I still want the points if they are up for grabs.

This really seems too good to be true, so maybe it is? Time will tell. lol!

Not me. And honestly, unless I happen to read a thread discussing the points, I don't even check them.

I was doing but I think I must have filled up my quota or something because my points aren't changing at all. Never mind. It got me to the first level which is all good because I didn't ever expect to do that.

Is this an instrument of torture or communication?

No. Since I've ordered from here twice in 8 years, the prospect of a discount doesn't make a difference to me.

But I've got the scrappin bug lately, so I've been here more.

I've posted lo's for the first time in many years, but that was because I'm trying to participate in the use your stash challenges. I'm trying to motivate myself.

But, if it's racking up more points than usual, then I picked a good time to do that!

I started being active during CHA. It really hasn't been for the points. I really don't pay much attention to them. I don't buy a ton, so I wasn't freaked out about the change to the loyalty system.

I do think I 'comment' more than I used to. The funny thing about that is I never shop on this site! I think their new Loyalty program (which drew a lot of fire early on) turns out to be beneficial; I'm certainly considering 2Ps a shopping option soon.

I didn't know you get points for posting a LO! I should be able to get 5% pretty soon.

Nancie52: Click the "STORE" menu and then "Customer Loyalty Program." It will explain how it works, the different levels, and show your current points. Good luck!!

I have been posting more often but it has nothing to do with points.

I just decided to really stick to scrapping PL style and *staying current* with it this year, so I am here getting inspiration and staying in a scrapping mood.

Well, I think I have reached my quota for this month or something, because I stopped getting points for my posts, but between the CHA points, recent layout and chatty points, I went over the 5% mark for the first time!

I'm probably posting more on the message board in general (extra points or not). I don't feel it'll affect my gallery posting as I 'hit quota' so quickly since I've been scrapping more of late.

nope... I post the same amount as I used to (and my points haven't changed for the last few days, either). I don't really shop here, either, but since there's only one really good LSS remotely near me at all, I may start doing some of it here. (but I have way too much stuff in my room right now to justify any big purchases, anyway!)

I seem to be getting tons of points for posting bug none for posting LOs. I want a bunch of new stuff so am trying to get over the hump to get 5%.

Nope. 5-15% does not interest me. I seldom order anything that is not at least 50% off and hopefully with free shipping.

And yes I do find those deals because I don't care if something is "new" or not. Just if I like and will maybe use it.

I was, but for some reason I have stopped getting points for MB posts (and I was no where near maxing out for this month yet), and I tried uploading three cards since February started and haven't gotten points for any of them. Before this change I occasionally lurked the message boards but used the 2Peas store as my primary place to shop for scrapping supplies and was at the 15% discount. With the change of policy it feels like 2Peas values my participation more than my money and with the inconsistency of earning points I'm about ready to wash my hands of the whole thing. Which is sad because I used to love shopping here.

I feel like in the past week or two I have noticed an increase in more simple posts, so I definitly think people do it.

Also, I noticed there are 1 or 2 peas who start LOTS of threads asking about things that there are already threads for, on pages 1 and 2! Then they never check back in to respond to the feedback they requested, or even acknowledge it. I know this happens sometimes but mostly the usual Peas say thanks, etc. I think these couple of Peas post just to post for points.
So to answer your question, I think it is definitely happening! And with the points acting as wonky as they are, why not post away! Mine are worth 60 points each today! lol

I'm not too worried about points let them add up and who knows maybe someday I will get a reward. I have checked a few times due to all the talk about it. Nothing yet. I think I go through posting phases where sometimes I have time for boards and sometimes I lurk.
