I will say the biggest drawback to start is that we are launching in Grand Rapids, MI first and building out from there. So we have the functionality on the site to geocode our offers to show the offers closest to your location but we've disabled that at this point just because we have to start in our home City and expand, hopefully quickly!
You're right about the points though you have the choice of completing all the offers yourself or referring friends. And another great thing is if you earn more points than the prize is worth you don't lose all your points, you only cash in the number of points needed and then you can start earning again for another prize.
Like you said, we had the same issue. We were running out of offers to complete and also couldn't find any that interested us. We also found people to be skeptical of a lot of the offers which drew people away. People trust their local businesses more and we think that will draw more people in.

that is good to know... I like this concept.... just like you... doing freebies for so long, very little offers that I can do.
another thing... is that my zip code is bringing up offers from another state... I'm in Missouri, it shows Michigan offers..
lol, and I was wondering... it shows 8 pts needed for the prize... and if I completed 8 pts worth of offers, do I still need to refer people?
