Over 800 Free Recyclebank Points

I'm often asked why bother racking up free points from places like Kellogg's Family Rewards or Recyclebank. Well, in this case, how about a ton of free magazine subscriptions?

Recyclebank currently have 40+ (44 as of writing this), ranging from 160 to 480 points. Most magazines only cost around 200 points. But how do you get free Recyclebank points? I'm glad you asked!

I've compiled as many of the free Recyclebank points opportunities below, ranked by amount. Most of these are perpetually available, meaning you can get these points months and even years later. So after just a few minutes,

  1. Yes, I’ve gotten all the magazine I’ve ever ordered. Some did take a couple of months to start though, but I get about 10 free mags from recyclebank alone. Seems the timing depends on the publisher.

  2. has ANYBODY received any magazines from the last time recycle points have been posted? Its been well over 2 months & I have not gotten any magazines yet .. boo.. πŸ™

  3. If you’re like me and can’t figure out why the points won’t credit to you, TEMPORARILY disable pop ups. Alternatively, you can also just allow recycle bank pop ups.

  4. i actually LEARNED Something through the recycle website. I got a gagillion points and used them to get 3 subscriptions and I need to buy some kashi so i can get another subscription!!!!

    I really honestly learned stuff that I had NO clue about.. that is the PURPOSE of doing these tests – surveys etc… so no, its NOT counter productive at all.

    A little effor went a long way with me, and i WILL be doing ALOT of things to reduce my carbon footprint. Really had no clue how wasteful and lazy that I have become as a ‘lucky American consumer’…

    Anyways, im STOKED with this website..

    #37 and anyone else – when doing the green your school and the other two options under that one, you have to hit ‘COLLECT YOUR POINTS’ and then you can collect your points (collect your rewards..) whatever it says.

    I went thru all three 2x before I realized that I didn’t hit collect my points… then the third time, i got all the points.. thus affording me the ability to cash in my points for 3 magazine subs!

    so the rest of you who complain. get over yourself and put forth some effort my fellow even WORSE and Lazier Americans!!!



    Do everything in FIREFOX…
    Allow plug ins to work….

  5. Tried Green Your School a bunch of times but I got no points. The site is cool buy it is such a real pain to get points. Good luck to y’all. πŸ™‚

  6. ps on the brita water filter quiz, use the numbers above the letters on the keyboard, not the pad on the right side. i got really frustrated at first before hitting the number keys on top!

  7. when you click to get your points, if the wheel keeps spinning and spinning, you do get your points. none of mine confirmed and it kept spinning but when i signed in after it was all done to check my points. indeed i got them all. dont worry!

  8. Thank you so much for this! It was easy to do and makes me happy that I got a free extra points for referring family and friends and having ziploc bags and kashi cereal. Seriously this was awesome.

  9. Isn’t a little counter-productive for a site that is about change, recycling, pledging to create a better future, etc… to offer massive amounts of magazine subscriptions?.. just sayin’.

  10. IT WORKED FOR ME!! took a long time to figure it all out (have never used recyclebank) but once I skipped around I got the 170 total & just got the Harpers Bazar….yea!!!

  11. Finally, got it & more. Not sure what made the water 25 pt finally work, because i tried so many things, anyway:) Also, in the school thing, you can get even more points – go back to “shopping” & “first day” tabs. Thanks Goob!

  12. Forget Papa John’s. I can’t get past the first survey–Britta water. it asks how many bottles of water i drink a month. i can put the number but then it just keeps flashing number. i have hit enter on keyboard, tried to hit all over the screen using the mouse, etc. can’t go anywhere else.

  13. Yay! I had a few saved up from last time, then I did the Suave quiz and the Green Your School Year quiz… I had enough points for THREE subscriptions! Thanks!!

  14. Hi Guys,
    I wanted to let you know, I had found out about HIF about 3 1/2yrs ago. My local News station (Wisconsin’s Fox 11) had a segment on coupons & freebies. They had anounced your website ( it was the only 1, & very trusted by their newscasters), so I gave you a try. Your are very wonderful & appreciated by ALL my family & friends. Thank you for all you do for us Hiffers.

    Best Wishes,
    The Savage Family

  15. got my 50 points. now I need to wait for something ‘free’. Already used up some points for a free subscription to Good Housekeeping. Love this!
