Today, rather than redeem 5000 points for $5.00 in gift cards, I choose to redeem 4500 for 500,000 tokens. Tokens can be used to enter sweepstakes on perk.com. I turned the 500,000 tokens in for just over 200 entries in a game the winner of which takes home 0.05 bitcoins – about $25.00.
If I win, I’ll have cleared $21.50 since the tokens cost $4.50.
I don’t imagine I’ll be doing extra sweepstakes like this very often. I’m here to make money, not gamble.
