check it out at www.ratings.net (http://www.ratings.net)
you get 50 points for signing up.. do about 5 reviews (takes 2 minutes) and you'll have 80 points which is enough for a $3 starbucks GC i think..

How do you claim the points you earned?!
I see where the Starbucks coffee is, however there is only a link for the rules of rating things. Also, I don't see any links for Blockbuster gift certificates.
Aside from that, rating things here is ridiculously easy. Earning points is so simple I wouldn't be surprised if this site goes down within 6 months, unless they change things.

Man! Even the topic of this subject was bad news, "earn". That means the same thing as "hard" and "work" and "honorable". All things I try to advoid.

it looked to me as though they entered you for a chance to win a starbucks GC when you hit 80 points, and you'd be contacted "if you won." not sure abou this though. kinda tired when i read it.

supox: on the home page there is a statement near the top that says "New prize offer: Reach 150 credits and get a free Blockbuster Certificate!!!" Not sure about the details though..
abatardi: this is what it says in the rules "Before June 30, 2000, Ratings.Net will send a gift certificate worth $3.00 good towards the purchase of any item at Starbucks Coffee shops to each registered user who accumulates at least 80 Ratings.Net credits by the end of the day June 30, 2000. Winners will be notified by e-mail."
so i guess everyone with 80 credits will get the $3 GC to starbucks..

why work so hard for a free starbucks coffee? check out the "Starbucks is evil" post for a free 12oz drink at Starbucks just for filling out a 1 minute survey. Yes literally One Minute!

I would rather go for the Blockbuster GF, but that is a lot of ratings.

Has anyone figured out how to redeem these points yet?
I have 152 points that I would like to use for a Blockbuster GC but can't figure out how to get it.
Any help would be wonderful.

yeah, but read the fine print.
"Winners will be notified by e-mail."
"Giveaway PRIZES. Gift certificates are good at any Starbucks Coffee shop. Approximate Retail Value ("ARV") of Certificate - $3.00. Total ARV for all prizes - $1000.00."
So, they've got about 333 of these starbucks certificates.
"Giveaway WINNERS LIST - OFFICIAL RULES. For the name of the prize winners...."
Sounds like somewhat of a contest to me. either that or they were just too lazy to make their own fine print and changed some names here and there. http://www.gotapex.com/ubb/smile.gif
