Did anyone else get an email about a new smartconnect rewards program? It says you would earn 2 pts/$1 until September 2013. You have to go through a site called loyalty innovations. Wanted to know if this was a legit offer before I sign up for it.
Hmm, I didn't get any e-mail about that. Also went to Google to search and only thing that came up is the Paypal Extras Mastercard.
I got the email.. disregarded at that time.. Now i want to complete the enrollment but cant find it any more.. do you happen to have the link?
Yeah, I've never received any emails like this from PayPal. I'd research that a little more before doing anything with the link.
Hi, I signed up for the rewards program when it was first introduced to me in October 2012, it is legitimate. I receive a monthly statement via e-mail showing my rewards, based on purchases made with my paypal smartconnect account. The link to sign in or register is https://www.loyaltyinnovations.com/smartconnect/. I was leery about it too, but confirmed with paypal before proceeding. This link on paypal confirms it as well. https://www.paypal-community.com/t5/About-Products-Archive/New-PayPal-Smart-Connect-Rewards-Program/...
According to Paypal this is a phishing attempt. If you receive a message from Paypal that does not seem Legit you can forward it to Spoof@paypal.com and they will check it out. I have done this a couple times with the same result. It is a Scam as the paypal discussion board mentioned in this thread seem to be.
