Point/Credit/Buck Sites. What is worth it?

     Ok, so I'm a busy student who loves to get free stuff.  I use MyPoints, Swagbucks, and Daily Feats to help 'redeem' some of the time I spend online.  However, not all 'rewards' are the same.  For this post I'll look at what rewards are worth cashing in and which ones you should leave behind on Daily Feats.
     Daily Feats is one of my favorite internet sites period.  It is a platform that lets you check in when you do everyday good deeds, habits, and self-care activities.  For each check in you get points that you can cash in for gift cards locally and online.  I also like that you can help support others trying to develop habits of their own, and receive support too.
     Ok, for the breakdown:

Best Discount Rewards: Money you spend/ points per $/ total discount

Walgreens $25/ 10 points per $1= 20%
