Explanations and instructions of all things Writing.Com.
Writing.Com Gift Points are "virtual tokens" used within the community and website to advertise items and links, purchase products and memberships or show another member your sincere appreciation. Basically, Gift Points are like the tokens you buy in an arcade. You put a dollar in the change machine; you receive 4 tokens. At most arcades, each token is worth 25 cents. Here at Writing.Com, if you give us a dollar, we give you 10,000 Gift Points.
Where Do I Find Mine?
