Unhappy Superpoints closed down
An important message from the Superpoints team:
Dear Superpoints members,
At the end of January, 2011 the current team began to manage operations of Superpoints.com on behalf of its owner, Superpoints, LLC, in the hopes that we could build a great rewards community. We did our best, but unfortunately Superpoints, LLC has decided to cancel our management relationship and take back management of the site.
Unfortunately we are forced to suspend access to Superpoints.com and members will no longer have access to the site as of 3:00 pm central time on November 7th, 2012. We’re saddened to have to take this action, but extenuating circumstances have forced our hand. We’ll do our best to complete fulfillments on a timely basis for those rewards claimed prior to the site’s suspension.
FAQ:
Will my pending redemption still be paid out?
Yes, we will do our best to fulfill all redemptions submitted to Superpoints.com prior to 3:00 pm CST on November 7, 2012.
Why are you making such drastic changes?
There are several changes happening in the management of the Superpoints website and the economic conditions around supporting a rewards site. Those changes have prompted the suspension of the Superpoints.com website.
What about my support email that you haven’t replied to?
At this time we do not have the resources available to respond to all the support emails. We will begin answering new support emails regarding redemptions but all prior emails will not be addressed. If you have any outstanding requests regarding redemptions, please contact us again and we will look into it. Requests outside of redemptions may or may not be responded to.
Is the site going down permanently?
The current team will no longer be the managing operator of the Superpoints.com domain and therefore we don’t have information as to whether or not Superpoints.com will resume service at a future date.

I know, a warning would have been nice. They did shut down before, went away for a long time before new management took over, but when they came back all my previous points were still in my account. Maybe this will happen again in the future, but you never know. That is why I was cashing every time I hit the $5 point total, because they had disappeared before Sorry you lost out on your chance to cash out, that is a raw deal.

Yeah, they immediately shut down their facebook page. I'm sure they were worried about the backlash they were about to get.

I cashed out awhile ago.
Been clicking very intermittently but I only had 50 points, so I feel like I quit in time.
That is just horrible, but they had done it before, so as soon as I was able to get a reward I cashed in. I was within 20 points of cashing in when they changed the rules last time.
Took me another few months to final cash out.

So sorry this happened to you.

I gave up on that site shortly after it started. It just was not generating enough $$ to warrant the time spent there. Sympathy goes out to all who lost their rewards.

I wonder how long they've known about this? They were still sending out emails late this morning, telling me I had points. It looks like they're just trying to weasel out of paying anyone. I had been saving my points too. All that time spent, now it's for nothing.

Our task must be to free ourselves...by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature and its beauty.

I had about 800 points stashed up, but I only did the email clicks and had no one signed up under me. It would have taken a really long time to be able to cash out. I don't even remember what the minimum cash out was. I'm not going back if they do return.
