I have finally gotten to 1000 points.
It might not be a big deal to some, but in my last monthly Gather Point Statement delivered to my e-mail I noticed that I had been awarded the sum of 27 points for April 2012. I had never paid much attention to that point statement before, but this time I was curious so I peeked. This is LESS than an average of 1 point per day. I got out my little calculator and I figure it will take me will take me 20.9 MONTHS to be able to cash out for a $25 dollar gift card! I can not imagine how long it might take me if the Gather Gods in their infinite wisdom decide to slow point awards even more!
