What are MakeUseOf points worth?

Rob Hindle September 27, 2012

You can exchange 400 points for a $40 product but another $20 product costs 500 points. So is a point worth 4 cents or 10 cents?

    Premium downloads, or competitions which result in a pretty nice reward.

    I am sure they are not transferable so you can't sell them on ebay :)
    They should be treated as loyalty points. If you are loyal to makeuseof they will give some value back in that partnership. That is the whole point. You can use them instead of paying for their highlighted software or to increase competition chances. Perhaps what should be asked how valuable is that to you?!

    I'm sure there is no exact monetary conversion... probably a generalization based on their costs and their net after taking into consideration the benefit they glean from the points they give customers.

    They're not worth any actual monetary value, so AFAIK each product offered through Rewards has a points value assigned to it on a case-by-case basis.
