I love books! My budget for books however is extremely limited, making me very creative when it comes to feeding my passion.
One newly discovered source of free books has me shouting from the mountain tops (well okay not literally because I do live in corn country where mountains are no where near).
Since I can’t actually shout from a mountain top I am going to share it here on my blog: I am in love with Tyndale Rewards!
Tyndale Rewards is a point rewards program for book lovers. Books start at as little as 30 points for a children’s book to as much as 250 points for a bible. The average points needed for the majority of their books is around 100 points.
Here are 9 ways to earn Tyndale Rewards
1. Sign up through the links in this article and receive and automatic 25 points
2. Invite your friends to join using the links Tyndale Rewards gives you and receive 10 points per friend who enrolls.
3. Take a bible survey and receive 15 points (survey ops. will vary from time to time)
4. Subscribe to an e-newsletter or e-devotional and receive 10 points
5. Join the focus group and receive 25 points every time you are chosen and reply
6. Complete the e-reader survey and receive 1o points (survey ops. will vary from time to time)
7. Join the birthday club and receive 15 points
8. Review a Tyndale product and receive 10 points
9. Share Tyndale rewards on Facebook, Twitter, or your blog and submit the link and receive 10 points (up to 50 points per month/ 5 shares)
When I joined Tyndale Rewards I started with just 25 points, I quickly joined the birthday club (15 points), completed the bible survey (15 points), completed the ereader survey (15 points), subscribed to a e-devotional (10 points) and shared it on my facebook page (10 points) and that gave me the 90 points I needed to order my first book on the very same day I signed up.
There is no shipping or handling costs involved the book was 100% free, and I plan to review it on Amazon after I read it to collect another 10 points.
Here is how I think an average person could earn a book every month or so
Share to your personal Facebook page and Twitter account 5 times a month = 50 points
Review the previous months earned Tyndale Rewards book on Amazon= 10 points
Complete one survey (not sure how often new ones will be offered) =10 points
Total points earned in a average month : 70 points
70 points is enough for most of fiction books currently offered and all of the children’s books currently offered. That means you should be able to easily earn 1 free fiction book a month. Non fiction books, audio books and bibles are higher in point value meaning they would take longer to earn.
Still this example does not include any friend credits you might receive and only allows for one new survey a month so your earnings could possible be higher.
If you are a book worm like me what are you waiting for join Tyndale Rewards Today!
