New poll shows that it will be available for a couple of days. I guess they're cutting back on the RZ points even more. First they cut down from 25 to 10 now it's 10 every other day. That's an average of 5 points a day or an 80% reduction in points.

Correct, but they also said they would vary the points, so it's possible that some will be 25 again even if it's not daily.

I got $35 out of this promotion, so I can only imagine how much money they've lost from everyone doing it. Makes a lot of sense for them to slow it down.

I'm sure with tpeople using more than 1 fb acct to get multiple points they saw it added up to alot more lost. So they placed these stopgap measures in place to figure it all out.

Go ask other retailers for free stuff on their facebook page. It baffles me to see all this entitlement. You should check out Best Buy's facebook page full of idiots demanding free points every day and how it is "unfair" they are not giving points every day :roll:

Honestly, this free point promo should have only been open to Silver members, since anybody could have gone and opened multiple RZ accounts and milked it (which is probably what caused what is more or less it's demise).

My wife and I both have separate accounts and I purchased Mulan (on Blu ray) for my daughter using $5 in RZ certs from my account and $10 from my wife's. It's a real bummer that this thing is basically worthless now. I'll still claim whatever points they offer but it's going to be a slow grind at this point. I don't think I abused it since I didn't just open a bunch of new accounts or anything though I'm sure some people did that.

Seems like a clever marketing strategy to me. Give away 25 points a day, get the word out all over the internet about people getting free stuff through the app... Then, once everyone's on board, slowly cut it back a little more each week. They now have an app with a 4 1/2 star rating and tens of thousands of new users, and we're all still hooked and in the habit of logging into the app everyday and looking at the sections to check for new polls.

Same. I think I remember doing this one a while back. So now:
1. Reduce the number of points per poll.
2. Only put a new poll up once or twice a week.
3. Reuse old polls.

At this rate we'll be lucky to get 25 points a month.
