    Anyone else been invited to Nectar Adpoints? 24th Nov 11 at 9:59 PM
    Just had an email off Nectar asking whether I would like to get paid in Nectar points to watch adverts. Apparently you get 1000 points just for joining! Its open to the first 7500 cardholders who sign up.

    Site is taking an age to load though....!

    Adpoints have just sent me this nonsense reply below. How much time do they think people can spend each day on this?

Agreed that's a poor hourly rate but my goal is a free flight through Easyjet next year. I can afford the flight but its the goal, for me.

    Adpoints have just sent me this nonsense reply below. How much time do they think people can spend each day on this?
    'I am sorry you are disappointed. Here is some more information to help you understand better how Adpoints works.
    Firstly though, there are currently more points to be earned by answering advertisers questions and clicking through to advertisers websites.
    New Ads are coming onto Adpoints all the time. Some Ads will only offer a limited number of Views, and so will only be shown for a limited period. But also, these may return to your carousel again some days later, giving you the opportunity to View for additional points. Other Ads may offer points when you View them two, three of four times. Yes there may well be a point where there are no videos to watch or further questions to answer, but hopefully not for long.
    The thing to do is to come and visit the site regularly and often and check your Carousel, as things are always changing! You will always be able to see how many points are available for you to collect from an Ad (a total of Views, questions and click thrus), from the +number in the top left of each thumbnail image. If your carousel is showing all thumbnails with +0, or there are no thumbnails visible at all, do please try back later, as more points-collecting opportunities are being posted all the time!
    Please remember that although 250 points is the maximum you can collect in any week, points are subject to availability - so the total you can actually collect in a week may be less than this.
    Best regards,
    Adpoints Customer Support'

    It seems clear enough to me - and you have to remember that you can earn UP TO 250 points per week, they don't guarantee you can earn that much. If all you have are zero point videos then, as they suggest, try again later.

    I was also happy to see confirmation that we can watch ads more than once so long as there are points showing, I've watched many ads twice now.

    The reason you may not have as many ads available as others is also explained - they said that some ads only allow a certain number of views so if those ads have reached their maximum then you will only see them as 0 points.

    Hope that helps

    Three new ads just dropped into my carousel in the last few hours so might be worth others checking.

    We are sorry for those Nectar Adpoints members who appear to be unable to get anywhere near the maximum of 250 points. Although the collection of points is Subject to Availability, we would like to look at any instances of this happening just in case there is a problem with individual Member’s accounts. Please can you therefore email our Customer Helpdesk contact@adpoints.com - and we will look into your case as soon as we hear from you.

    Regards

    I have 156 points but the counter above says I have double that. Which means I can't collect any more points because I'm over the 250 pt limit. I've tried five times to explain it to them but I just get the same copy/paste response. Gonna have to try again next week when the counter has been reset.

    I have emailed the address you give several times, giving all my personal details, and have not got anywhere. In my last answer yesterday I was given a list of questions. This was my answer:
    'If you read comments on the Nectar Facebook site, and on the Martin Lewis forum you will see that there are other people experiencing the same problem.
    Please see my answers to your questions below:

    • For an Ad View, did you definitely click the prompts at the correct times?
    There may have been between one and three of these and you MUST click all these during the Ads to collect the points. Prompts do not work on all smartphones/tablets.
    I use a PC not a smartphone or tablet.
    I click all of the prompts and get to the end of the advert.

    • Did you rate the Ad at the end?
    You must rate the Ad before the countdown clock reaches zero
    Yes I rate the advert within the given time-slot.
    • For the brand questions, did you definitely scroll down and click the SUBMIT button before selecting a new Ad to view?
    You must click submit for EACH question to collect the points
    Yes, I click submit for the brand questions.
    • Are you certain that there were points on offer for the activity? - ie were points definitely indicated next to the relevant activity before you clicked?
    If the symbol next to the activity said +0, there were no points available for that activity.
    Yes, I don't bother if it says no points. Today every advert on my carousel had no points.
    As I have previously explained, I have logged out and back in again, and I have cleared the cache. I have tried this on IE 9, Firefox and Google Chrome.
    • Have you checked that you haven’t already reached your 250 points limit for the week?
    My points stand at 151, despite having made many attempts until the adverts had no value.'

    I have not had a reply today.

    I'm not much better, on 165 and no more ads to watch. It's very strange, I wonder what's going on?

    On some of the ads in the strip, it says I can earn, for instance, 2 points (as if I've missed a question) but when I click on it, it still says '0.'

    I have also had problems collecting points. Last week was around the 200 mark and this week I can only get to 130 or so (which I got on Monday).
    I tried contacting them and they sent the same response that was posted above. I have been trying several times a day for the last few days and no new ads have appeared. I only have ones that show zero. I have tried reviewing them again but still nothing and no points for questions either! Most frustrating

    Yup! There have been few new ads for some time. A bit of a disappointment for such a hyped up points collecting scheme and from a supposedly reputable brand.

    Must try harder!

    Having not quite received enough ads to get to 250 points for the week ending yesterday, quite a few ads in my carousel this morning. Enough to get to nearly 200 points. The ads themselves though are mainly the ones I watched last week sent again. The number of times I've watched Twinings and David Bailey ads now must be double figures!!
