Thanks for the tip. I was clueless. Maybe I'll make some people happy.

When you see a post or a blog entry that strikes your fancy, go to his or her spark page. If it isn't set to private, go to the bottom of the page to see goodies that have been given to that member by other member, and over on the right side of the page you'll see a button marked "send a Spark Goodies". Hit that, then choose the goodie, and you're golden.

If they haven't set up a Spark Page yet, there's not much you can do.

Try it! It's fun! And what're you saving all those points for? Retirement?

I don't know how to use the "goodies" nor do I know how to give them as gifts. I think I'd rather earn spark points. emoticon

They are no good for anything else, But I don't really bother seems like a waste of time.

heheh I just found out how to do the sparkie goodie thing and I think its a great motivator for those that need it, or for those that are having a bad day, for special occasions or celebrations and I love to give them to my new sparkie friends who add me or comment on my blogs ..

I am still not sure about how the point system works yet or how you even collect them, but so far I think its a cute thing to have.. kinda in the remedial learning stage yet

Yes, what else can I use them for? I like to give goodies to my friends and people who come by and leave messages on my blog to encourage me to keep on going.

No. Not for any real reason. I just don't give Goodies.

I like to give goodies. There is no reason to save them. I just don't take as much time as I should to pass out more goodies. I have way too many goodie points sitting there doing nothing.

I give them away. No reason to save them when I can help make someone's day, support them or celebrate their accomplishments. I love giving goodies!

YOU decided who got it when you traded points for it!

Did you give it to yourself (if so, it is on YOUR spark page) or did you give it to someone else (to do that, you are on THEIR spark page)?

I used some of mine on an aerobic stepper. My question is who gets the stepper. I'm confused when it comes to these points.......

I don't "save" them for anything... I mean, what else would you save them for? I give out what I want, when I want. If I deplete them, so what? I'll get more. ;) They're not real money, and there's no benefit to having a bank. Nothing happens if you run out.

I do have a pretty huge amount, but just because I don't usually give them out for the heck of it. Usually to welcome new people, thank folks, and celebrate big acheivements.

I give them out occasionally but usually have way more in my goodie "bank" than I spend.

Just like in real life, I do not spend for the sake of spending.

For the past week, I have seen Goodie Points on my wheel just about every day - but I never won any with my spins. I see them so rarely - I have way more points than available points . Do you give away most of your points, or save them for friend's birthdays, anniversary celebrations, and real thank you rewards? What happens if your points go way down or are gone? I would like to give some of the high ticket goodies to special friends, but then I would deplete them all so fast. Do you keep a certain amount in reserve, or just give 'em out? emoticon

(It seems I always land on the space NEXT TO the Goodie points! Again and again and again!) This week I saw 1000, 500 several times, 100, and 50 again and again - and didn't land on ANY!)
