I have been a member of Gather since December of 2008, and I am now just 4 points away from my first paypal $25.00 cashout at 1565 points. I am so excited! It's been a fun four months, going place in pictures and videos that I have never been before, and reading all sorts of interesting posts. Having used Paypal years ago when I dabbled in Ebay, and later cancelling my account due to not using it, I knew I needed to get set up with Paypal a few days in advance. For those not familiar to Paypal, you need to go to Paypal.com and get set up. Have your checkbook handy so you can enter your bank routing number and account number. They will actually make a couple of deposits to your account of a few cents, and then you have to go back into Paypal to and type in those amounts in a verification screen. This is why you need to go in and get setup with paypal a few days in advance of cashout. The Paypal website states that I can get a Paypal debit card after 60 days of opening my account. Those of you who have Paypal, do you have a Paypal debit card? Do your recommend it?
Original goals for the $25.00
New shoes, new blouse or new pants for me
Baseball shoes and baseball uniform for daughter, Girl Scout camp, other day camp
Did you get to spend your first cashout on your original goal?
