Do a few other things first, after you accumulate points you get more spins. I'm not sure but I think 5 spins is the max. It took me some time to figure that out, I couldn't understand why I had 1 spin sometimes and 3 or 4 spins at another time. So don't do the spins first thing in the morning.

It takes away from our purpose in being here because the rest of us are looking for real information or real connection and we have to slog through that stuff on the threads.

I sometimes go for the spins and sometimes not. I really wish the points could "do something" even if they just were a chance of winning something real, even a very small chance. I just don't find much incentive to rack up points. It is laughable to me, as well, that some just put a number or word on posts (without reading the question or discussion topic). I think they should have points deducted for doing that! emoticon

Yes, I noticed that icon on the left hand side is gone now too, but you can still get to the Bonus Spins. See the "Step 1 - Track Your Progress? If you scroll down to "Step 3", you'll see there are tabs for Community Features and one is "SparkAmerica Team Bonus Points". Click on that and the Team Bonus Spins will show up to the right. Hope that helps.

They are not gone... they are still on your Start Page; just scroll down.


I am laughing at the responses below that prove that some people only post for points. They did not even BOTHER to read the question!

Where have the bonus spins gone? There is still a listing for it on my SparkPoints page, but when I go to my start page, the little flags are gone that allow me to give points to my teams.

I'll get bonus spins when first logging in and it took me a long time to figure out they were coming from streak points. Like reaching a fitness goal for the month.

I am confused about the Bonus Spins where you can give away points to your favorite teams. I don't know why but I find the Bonus Spins fun. Sometimes they appear, sometimes not...I got one bonus spin this morning before I even did my first click. I've noticed if I work around on the site I can gain more spins...since I want to award all of my teams, I'll wait.
But then this morning the little bonus spins flag disappeared....I never got to even use the one I got. Am I doing something wrong?
