I enjoy the spin but never take it seriously until several weeks ago when I hit a free DVD. Maybe I was supposed to do something to receive it but all I saw was a note that it would arrive in 2-3 weeks. I was really excited. Well, it's been well over 3 weeks and no DVD! I'm disappointed and spent a lot of time trying to go back and even find the day I was told I won it. No Luck. I love SP but feel I got short changed on that one! emoticon

I like the bonus wheel. It's a fun way to get a few extra points. Even though I didn't join spark people for points but to help keep me on track with fitness & eating healthy.

I have only seen a gift on my bonus wheel one time, but I am not doing this for points or gifts. I am doing this because I need to get healthy and I make sure I log in enough sparkpoints to get the bonus wheel because that means I traked my food, water, and exercise. The point to sparks is not getting free things or more points, but to get healthier and SPARKS should get a trophy for helping us all get there and allowing us to do it free. Thanks you Sparks and sparkfriends for just being there.

The reason why I like the bonus wheel is because I have two kids & they love to spin the wheel for me. So 1 gets the 1st wheel & 1 gets the bonus wheel. It gets them excited to help me out & it's motivation for me not only to log into sparkpeople but to also do what is needed to get points. They love watching to see how for I have to go to the next trophy.

Today I got 10 on the regular wheel & 20 on the bonus spin. Sure, sometimes I get 2, but that's why getting 20 is so exciting. It's like finding a penny on the sidewalk. I didn't have it before. WOO HOO!

I think it is fun to have a Bonus Wheel.

May this be the turning point in your life. Each day opens like a door letting us see the wonders of life. It is up to you to embrace all that is given. Do not regret the wasted moments of the past embrace the future and move forward.

When I earn the bonus spin, I allow one of my kids to spin it. They are thrilled no matter what shows up and they are supportive of all of my efforts to get to the 25 daily points to have the privilege of earning the extra spin. I use the extra points to send virtual SP gifts to friends to keep them motivated and they give me their support through uplifting messages in return. It becomes a win all around and I am glad for the opportunities it yields.

MOMWANTSNOWAIST why do you believe you should get another 25 points (at least) for doing nothing more important than earning the first 25 points? Wouldn't that just mean you want all your points doubled, really?

The "bonus spin" is exactly that - a bonus SPIN. You get to spin the exact same wheel, with the exact same random values on it, as you spin day to day. You get to spin it again! Aren't you lucky? That's all that "bonus spin" means.

It does NOT mean "you get heaps and heaps of free points you didn't earn". So those expecting or demanding higher values only on the bonus wheel are being entirely unreasonable.

If I did have one suggestion -
It would be that you could maybe get a second bonus spin in a day. Maybe not every 25 points but maybe the first one at 25 points then 75 points then 125 Points.

I always feel disappointed when I get low points - be it two or three in the normal spin or five on the bonus. If minimum points were 25 and it went up from there, I would also be disappointed if I only got 25 emoticon . It's not like there is a prize at the end of spin - it is for fun! Enjoy!
