Father's Day Gift Ideas #Gifts4Dad
June 1th, 2014

Need some gift ideas for dad? Check out some of our picks for Father's Day this June 15th below! Remember to shop through Play2Shop to receive cash back: www.play2shop.com/shop ;)

For the tech-savvy dad, pick up Amazon Fire TV for $99 via Amazon.com. If your dad likes watching what he wants, when he wants, Amazon Fire TV will let him do just that. This small, easy, and well-designed set-top box is a great way for him to stream everything from the latest blockbuster to his favorite TV series and games. It’s also an Android-friendly device so he can access the system from his smartphone — truly ideal gift for the tech dad.

For the handy dad who also loves beer, $19.99 via Amazon can get you a "Chillsner". Love of beer is practically synonymous with dads, and now there is a way to ensure that his lager or IPA is perfectly chilled every time. Designed like an icicle, or a “corksicle,” the Chillsner fits into a bottle’s neck so that his drink will cool off almost instantly, down to the last drop.

Pick up a sporty watch from Nordstrom for the casual, cool dad. We like the BOSS Olive Strap watch, $175 or the 'Santiago' silicone strap watch, $75. Both are durable and great for everyday wear but also stylish and versatile.

For the tech/gadget dad, get him something that will keep him fascinated. Try a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 Internet Tablet via Tirgerdirect.com, $179 or for something simple, Star Trek Borg Cube Whiskey Chillers via ThinkGeek, $24.99. For the tech dad who is also a fit dad, pick up a Jawbone Wireless Activity Tracker from Best Buy, $149.99 which tracks everything from steps taken to sleep patterns!

Remember to purchase any of these items through Play2Shop for cash back. Head to www.play2shop.com/shop, search for the store you would like to shop at and then click on their logo, you will then be redirected to their site and any purchase you make will be recorded for cash back!

NATIONAL LAUNCH DAY!!! Welcome to Play2Shop!
SEPTEMBER 24th, 2013

Today has been over three years in the making and we’re proud to officially open the doors to Play2Shop today. Our main goal when we built this site was to make Play2Shop a fun, entertaining and rewarding experience – we think we succeeded on all three!

One question we’ve been answering a lot lately is “What is Play2Shop?” Simply put, Play2Shop is a fun place to play games, earn points and get free stuff! Play2Shop combines the best part of casual gaming sites and shopping reward sites to create a place where you can earn rewards for playing games and cash back for shopping at over 1,000 partner merchants.

We loved to play games but were tired of getting nothing more than bragging rights or virtual goods for all the games we played. We set out to give you fun and entertaining games that earn you points you can turn into free stuff. And not just any stuff, you can use these points to buy products or gift cards for retailers you really want (and maybe need).

But we didn’t stop there! We added online auctions where you can bid on great prizes like Kindles, iPads, merchandise or gift cards with your Play2Shop reward points. If you like to compete head-to-head for prizes, your points even get you into exclusive tournaments with great prizes.

Now if you like shopping and getting the best deal possible, check out the Play2Shop shops. Play2Shop lets its members earn cash back from online shopping at over 1,000 fantastic online merchants. When you shop through Play2Shop, you can typically earn between 2-10% cash back all the way up to 70% from some merchants. Plus Play2Shop also rewards members with 10 Play2Shop Reward Points for every dollar spent.

The site is 100% completely free and you don’t have to spend any money to start earning rewards. There is also a VIP option that increases cash-back up to 50%, get you into exclusive tournaments and auctions and lets you earn even more points!

Today is a proud day for all of us to make our official debut. Now make sure you go and sign up for your free Play2Shop account and start earning rewards right away. As a matter of fact, sign up right now and we’ll give you 5,000 bonus points to get you started!

More About Play2Shop Reward Points
SEPTEMBER 24th, 2013

One of the main parts of Play2Shop is the Play2Shop Reward Points and here is a bit more background on what reward points are, what they can do and how you can earn them.

Now that you are a member of Play2Shop, it’s time to play games, earn points, and get free stuff! Use your points to get rewards, bid in auctions, and join tournaments.

There are lots of ways to get points:

  • Play Games – The more you play, the longer you play, the more points you get
  • Invite Friends – Earn extra points each time your friends join
  • Share the Fun – Share on Facebook and Twitter to earn more points
  • Become a Play2Shop VIP – VIPs get extra points and access to exclusive tournaments
  • Purchase Points – Buy extra points whenever you need them
  • Buy Stuff – Get 10 points for every dollar you spend when you buy stuff from our 1,000+ affiliate partners, and get up to 10% cash back on every purchase!

From your Play2Shop Dashboard, you can see your total points on the left-hand side of the page. You can also see your total points in the grey box in the upper-right corner of the page next to the Sign-out box. This point total is visible from every page when you are signed into the Play2Shop website.

Now that you know a bit about the points, let’s talk a bit about what you can do with these. Your points are your way into our Play2Shop tournaments for the chance to compete for great prizes. Each tournament has an entry fee listed. Your entry fee may vary depending on the prize and length of the tournament. Each tournament will also list the grand prize along with the 2nd and 3rd place prizes so you know exactly what you have a chance to compete for. Also keep in mind how much more time the tournament has before it expires. The more time you have, the more opportunities you have to post the high score!

We also have a fun Play2Shop Auction where you can use your reward points to bid on great products, gift cards and other prizes. Auctions can run daily, weekly, monthly or quarterly depending on the item and type of promotion. Each auction prize has a designated time period and a minimum opening bid amount. You can use your reward points to place bids on the items during the auction and you can place multiple bids on the same item. All you have to do is be the highest bidder when the auction closes and the prize is yours!

Our final way to use your points is just to redeem them in our Play2Shop Prize Showroom where, if you have the available points, you can buy any item listed. At Play2Shop we know points don't mean too much unless you have something of value you can exchange them for. Each item displays the number of points needed to redeem for that item. If you have enough points you can click on the "Buy It Now" button and it's yours! We will then deduct the points from your account, charge a small $2 administration and processing fee (along with any applicable shipping charges) to your credit card or PayPal account on file, and then ship the item directly to you.

As you can see, there really are plenty of ways to get rewarded for being a Play2Shop member!
