Thinking about trying Plink? Sign up for a free Plink account, spend as little as $1.00 at Office Max by Sep. 1, and earn 1,000 Plink points.

That’s enough points for a free $10 e-gift card to Amazon, Starbucks, Walmart or one of Plink’s many other retail partners—just for buying a $1.00 pack of pencils to finish up this year’s back-to-school shopping, or a $1.69 box of Bic Pens for the home office.

Plink is an electronic rewards program that users link to a credit or debit card. There are no coupons or membership cards to keep track of—just shop and dine out normally, and points accrue! Redeem those points for electronic gift cards to the many large, trusted retailers that partner with Plink.

Plink has an A rating with the Better Business Bureau and great online reviews! As a read-only encryption service, there are no unwanted fees or unauthorized access to your credit card.

Here’s what the management team at Plink shared with the Krazy Coupon Lady about security:

Plink never receives or stores your log-in information. Intuit stores your log-in information and matches transactions so we can give you rewards. Intuit also built Turbo Tax and Quickbooks and is responsible for storing millions of federal tax returns that include not only sensitive income information, but also bank routing numbers and social security numbers. They have the highest level of security available and are 100% PCI Compliant.

The access we have to match your transactions to our advertisers is 100% read-only. There isn’t any human that has access to your account and no person logs into it and looks at it. It’s all done by an automated process and all we get is a report, detailing transactions. Mint.com and Paypal use this same technology.

Get Started:

  • Visit Plink to sign up for free in under 5 minutes.

  • Done! Enjoy your e-gift card.

Remember, as a private offer, Plink Office Max might not show up in your Plink wallet; this is normal. Just make your purchase by the Sep. 1 deadline, and you’ll get your free gift card within 7 days after the transaction posts.
