However, this wasn’t exactly the case.
To earn the points, you’ll need to watch a short video (52 seconds long) about how FlexPoints transfer partner FamDoo works. I didn’t have much to lose so I went ahead and watched the video.
For those of you unsure of what FamDoo is (I had no clue), here is some info.
According to the e-mail from US Bank, “FamDoo is a modern-day allowance tool that helps parents reward their kids for desired behaviors. The FamDoo app and web experience helps coordinate family chores and promotes smart money habits. Kids earn points for a job well done, and can use those points for rewards“.
FlexPoints are transferable to FamDoo credits. You can also earn double FlexPoints when you purchase FamDoo points with your US Bank FlexPerks card.
I accessed the offer through the e-mail from US Bank which led me to the FlexPerks PromoSite.
According to the PromoSite, “you can earn 500 bonus FlexPoints just for watching a short video before March 2, 2015“.
I then clicked on Get Details which now brought me to a page with some info about FamDoo (and the promo). It stated that to earn the bonus FlexPoints, I’d need to click a button below to go to FamDoo site to watch the video.
The moment I arrived at the page, the FamDoo video started playing.
While listening to the video, I also looked around the page and didn’t notice any mention of getting 500 FlexPoints after watching.
What I did see was that for signing up for FamDoo you could get 500 free allowance points. Huh??? I didn’t look into the offer for FamDoo points. I do think the service sounds like an interesting idea but I don’t need or want an account.
So, US Bank- where is my free 500 FlexPoints bonus???
