They are a help when one can use it. By following the points one is led through the site to get bits and bites of everything on the site. The SparkPoints system in effect takes one by the hand and will lead one throughout the many facets of the site effectively.
My sparkpoints help me navigate throughout the site. It helps me to see and remember what sp offers and gives me the short cut to get there. It gives me the motivation to get on and my stuff done. I work for my trophies!

They are a motivating force for me, I love receiving them!
Thank you!!! Great explanation, that was what I thought, but so grateful you confirmed. It is interesting how motivating earning points can be, even if you don't actually receive anything for them! someone had a great idea with that.
I'm loving SparkPeople, I've lost 12 pounds with 28 more to go, but am encouraged and excited!
SparkPoints are a tool for personal motivation and encourage you to use all of the tools and features the site has available. There are individual and SparkTeam leaderboards that many members use for friendly competition. SparkPoints cannot be redeemed for actual prizes or awards, but there are sometimes prizes you can win daily on the SparkPoints Wheel. SparkPoints can be used to purchase SparkGoodies, which are virtual gifts you can give yourself or other SparkPeople members.

I don't quite get what spark points are for besides an incentive to earn them.
