Have you noticed how easy it is to gain points?

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Since Spark changed it's Start page format, I've noticed that I've been gaining 100 points or more just about daily. This is making it much easier to "level up" your points level.

Things I've been doing daily, blogging, checking in, bonus spin, giving points to my teams (up to 5 a day), having my fitbit connected and adding fitness minutes, commenting in teams and the occasional blog, and checking in to my goal board.

Those few things bring me over 100 Spark points.

The goal before was to get to the 25 points that would get me the bonus spin, now I blast that out of the water every day. It doesn't take much to gain points. If I were even more involved in looking through the site, I could probably easily get another 50 points or so.

The one thing I did notice was that they have your log in streak at the bottom and I thought that I'd logged in every day since I joined, but somewhere 59 days ago, I seem to have lost that streak, so instead of having nearly 660 days logging in, I only have 58. I'm bummed about that, but I suppose with that being so far down the page (and always has been) I forgot one day. My longest streak for that was 601 days, so I missed only one day.

    I love the extra points. I'm thinking, they will have to add new levels though with how fast we are earning them now. emoticon

    I think I'm beginning to like the new start page. As everyone else has said "...you can get points faster...". It's more fun now and that's a good thing because if I get bored, I usually don't do as well.

    I love the new points system. It is very encouraging to get so many points. It makes me want to get as many as I can. I am bummed to about your streak but 600+ days is awesome. Hope that you get up to that level again.
