    I won the NCAAF 2022 ATS Survivor Contest which wrapped last month - Won 5000 Bet Points which looked to be around $125 in gift cards. Nice contest to win - Just hoping my redemption "possibilities" in 2023 are something close to that...

    As much as I've enjoyed posting on the site, continuing to do so at this point is just enabling the screw job. Why would they pay out for traffic when they can get it for free?

    Will lurk every now and then and hope for the best. Later guys.

    What a joke. Should at least have given people the option to redeem what they have earned before closing shop and stealing the points.

    Can't wait to spend points on "SBR Swag"!!!

    Ha, I was saving 5k points for the bowl contest. Never even knew the store was gone. What exactly is the point of points now?

    A shell of its former life, most likely going the way of the Store and the classic odds page.

    Apparently no value in things the community wants and likes.

    How do you guys not understand the value of tiers and the repeated promises of betpoints being worth more than they were.

    Manny has explained several times the power of tiering.

    Edit: Nevermind. I am an idiot. just looked up the definition of tier.

    a row or level of a structure, typically one of a series of rows placed one above the other andsuccessively receding or diminishing in size.


    Fukk me to tiers!!!

    Amazing you guys don't get the extreme value here. You get to go pro using points that aren't worth anything so that you can earn points that aren't worth anything to level up your status on a gambling forum.

    Don't forget trivia and contest free plays where you get points that are somehow worth less than points that are already worth nothing.

    Guys please remember when betting your less than zero value freeplays to not bet on a number that can push. If you push we will send a points collection agency after you.
