  1. oh this is pretty exciting, something a bit different from the cash back from shopping type apps.

    Since I take uber all the time, this is going to come in pretty handy. And i do go to Macdonalds quite a bit too hehe.

    How easy is it to get your redeem your points? What was the turn around time to receive your gift card?

    • Thanks for reading! Sounds like you take advantage of Drop pretty easily!

      The points show up on your account within a few hours and are pending for a few days, but once you reach 5,000 points you can exchange them for a gift card. 

      Once you cash out the gift card is available immediately inside the app and via an email they send. 

      Hope this helps,
