"I thought SparkPoints used to be for winning actual prizes like gift cards and such."

Nope. You were never able to use points for actual things.

You WERE able to spin and get a free bumpersticker and some other little items. But that was a specific space on the wheel, not redeemed points.

No, they are for virtual goodies only.

Welcome to SparkPeople! SparkPoints are a tool for personal motivation. By completing various activities on SparkPeople.com that help you reach your goals (tracking food and fitness, posting in the Community, reading articles, etc.), you earn Points that can keep you motivated.

You can see how your Points ranking stacks up against other members and Teams by looking at our leaderboards. And as you earn more Points, you'll reach different trophy levels within the Community.

SparkPoints cannot be redeemed for actual prizes or awards. You can use them, however, to "purchase" SparkGoodies, which are virtual gifts you can give yourself or other members.

This page has info about SparkGoodies if you want to check those out: www.sparkpeople.com/resource/motivation_ar

Spark Points

I'm new with Spark -- what are Spark points and why are we spinning a wheel? I don't understand.
