I have asked this question repeatedly and have yet to get an answer from anyone. What are brownie Points for???? If I don't know what they are for it doesn't make any sense to try and earn them. Plus

I have asked this question repeatedly and have yet to get an answer from anyone.

What are brownie Points for???? If I don't know what they are for it doesn't make any sense to try and earn them. Plus the changes to the site are so user-not-friendly that coming here is not near as much fun as it used to be. I'll keep coming for the coupons, etc... maybe even a recipe or tow, but just to visit when it is so hard to get around now, I'm not sure!

New web site needs to have some of the old resources for getting Brownie Points as well as what is currently offered.  I miss reading swapped recipes, baking articles. and baking articles.  Mary Ann S.

Mary Ann:

Articles can be found under "Resources" and Swapped Recipes are coming back soon.  We are bringing a new rewards program soon that will provide you with more than just "points"!  Stay tuned.

The "articles" under resources are seasonal based except for a handful of how to choose a breadmaker, sharpen knives, choose baking pans, etc. I went to resources per your above notation and clicked on all three listings and found that all of them have the very same articles on them. Not much of a choice. I need articles on baking, working with chocolate, etc. Where are the videos that showed steps in getting from A-Z? I needed info on seized chocolate and never did find it. If there is one site on the entire internet that would have that answer, I would expect Nestle's to be it! It used to have it but, not anymore.

Clicking on the resourses page and then trying to click on some info got me an error message and a page missing message. Works just great doesn't it? Sarcastic? Yes! I am tired of trying to use this site. I still want my recipes back in my box so I can get them copied to my system then, this site will be history for me. Not a user friendly site and it is missing vital elements for a baking site. It is now a competition site for brownie points.  Also, printing the coupons is not worth it when you sit down and figure how much the ink/toner costs to print them. If they were in black and white without all the extra stuff it prints then it would be cost effective.

Nestle's really dropped the ball in redoing such a popular site without a WHOLE LOT MORE research. Live and learn.

I dont know what brownie points are. I just assumed they are for extras we dont ordinarily get. Anyone else know what they are for. Let us know. I just love the recipes for my kids.

You use them to enter sweeps.  I finally noticed today that they gave me some.

My points are not being added either, Amy. It's getting pretty bizarre here.....tonight I signed in, noticed what my points were....they actually had gone up a bit, but not to what they should be. Then after posting a comment, I noticed my points again....they were 3135 less than they had been just a couple minutes before!!! Instead of going up, they are going down!!!
