I have received a number of questions in recent days asking, “where are my points?”
For those of you who have been participating in Book Bassets PunchTab Loyalty Program, gathering points towards Amazon gift cards, the points have not gone anywhere. There are just no more prizes available at this time as all have been claimed by my users and paid out. I am currently not running any new giveaways, and have chosen not to display the points on the site.
Will I run future giveaways and, if so, do the points start back at zero?
The answer is, I don’t know. Due to some recent changes in Amazon’s operating agreement, websites who promote primarily free Kindle books are no longer eligible to get paid by their affiliate program. This leaves very little for me in terms of promotional funds. If I do run any giveaways in the future, I will make the determination of how to handle the points at that time.
What about the badges?
When I took the points down, I put up some badges in their place. These badges were just a fun little game to keep my users engaged until the next giveaway. They were met with enough negative feedback that I took them down within a couple of days.
I thank you for all of your support and apologize if this has inconvenienced you in any way. I can’t promise you any more rewards at this time, but I will continue to provide you with free Kindle books for as long as I can. Have a great day!
