WeightWatchers® is one of the most popular weight loss programs in the world today. The success of the program is due to it's simple premise: members get an alottment of WeightWatchers® points to spend on various foods they eat every day. For each thing they eat, its "cost" in points is deducted from their daily amount. If you run out of points for the day, you cannot eat anything else on that day.
For an obvious reason, WeightWatchers® points are a valuable commodity nowadays. Thousands of WeightWatchers® members worldwide go through their daily point alottment by lunchtime, and are forced to starve themselves for the rest of the day.
Here is your chance to help them out. On this page, you can donate your unused WeightWatchers® points for later distribution to those who need them most.
Frequently Asked Questions:
- Can I donate used points?
No. We kindly request that any points you donate be unused points. If you have used some points already, you cannot use them again, and neither can anyone else. Used points are of no value (except perhaps as a collectors' item).
- I have donated some points, but then realized I still need them. Can I use them?
We ask you to try really hard to avoid situations like this, as they result in used points being placed into our pool, and potentially distributed to end-users. (There is also nothing to guarantee that the points you have donated have not already been distributed to and used by someone else.)
- Can I donate last week's points? How about yesterday's?
When you donate points, they are placed in special storage making sure that they do not go bad. As most people do not have facilities like this at their disposal, and we cannot take a risk of getting expired points, we ask you to limit your donations to points for the current day.
- Are my donations tax-deductible?
Unfortunately, as WeightWatchers® points have no monetary value, you cannot deduct your donation from your Income for tax purposes.
- Are you affiliated with WeightWatchers®?
No, we are not. We are an independent agency operating to help connect people who have unneeded points with people who are in dire need of them. We have no relations (business or otherwise) with WeightWatchers®. Furthermore, WeightWatchers® neither endorses nor approves of this service.
