I love the idea of the original post about earning "free" items with your points. I would even take it one step further. I would be happy to trade my points and pay additional monies (if needed) to purchase items that interest me such as a SP water bottle, pedometer, or inspirational book. Something tangible is always more rewarding!!!

Minor issue. How about when tracking food using groupings ou get credit for each goruping. As a example, I had my normal breakfast of a protein smoothie, banana and a extra 1/2 cup milk toda and my coffee with creamer. Total points awarded was 3. If I had logged separate I would have gotten 8 points since it had the following items:

Group 1 = 1 scoop protein powder, 1 cup milk, 1 med banana, 2 TBS sunflower seeds, 1 TBS Ghirardelli Dark chocolate powder, group 2 = coffee, creamer and then the added 1/2 cup extra milk ( was hungry this morn :-) )

Anyway if I listed this separately It would be 8 points versus the three awarded or over the three years I've been around a extra 1800 points. Not a big issue either way, I just think tracking by groups should account for total foods in the groups if possible. I prfer the convenience of logging items as groups and will continue to do so despite the loss of points.

Thank you for the great board!!

I love SP. I like the idea of the SparkPoints, but feel it would be neat to be able to accumulate our points to trade them in for entries into a drawing for stuff. I have, as I'm sure other have also, been a part of survey sites and many times you are rewarded by getting points, etc. that you could use to put your name into a drawing. I notice lots of advertising that I'm sure some of these companies would be happy to supply the site with free merchandise for give aways. I certainly would be more motivated to log my food choices and do other things to earn the points if I knew the points would give me a chance to earn something. Even free tshirts, water bottles, key chains, buttons, etc....I'd be game! Just a suggestion!
