    I actually earned a lot of gift card from plink when it was partnered with sears and with staples, but I think almost anyone could see the writing was on the wall. The companies they partnered changed overtime and became less useful, and the business model didn't seem sustainable. It was good while it lasted. I wish there was slightly more notice because I had some points left, but I can understand if you have to shut down you have to shut down. The email from Plink is below for those interested

    To Our Loyal Plink Members,

    With much sadness and heavy hearts, we are sorry to tell you that Plink is closing its doors. As of today, the Plink site will be shut down and the program will cease to function.

    As a start-up, we are reliant on continued funding and over the last year we have been unable to secure any additional funding. Unfortunately, without that funding, Plink can no longer continue to operate. As a team, we did everything we could to keep Plink alive, but we have now run out of time and options.

    We owe a huge debt of gratitude to our loyal members who have supported us for the last three years. As a team, we want to thank all of our members, for their loyalty and continuing to stick with us to the end. We couldn’t have made it this far without such an amazing loyal, committed group of members.

    We also want to thank all of our advertisers and partners who supported us over the last three years. It was their belief in us and willingness to support a small start-up that allowed Plink to grow. We are proud to have partnered with some of the largest restaurant and retail brands in the United States.

    Moving forward, all Plink accounts will be closed. No further points can be redeemed. Thanks to all from the Plink Team.

    Any further questions can be directed to

    The Plink Team

    A sad loss - but as you said, the business model didn't seem sustainable. I guess this is proof that it wasn't. :(
