Unfortunately, we don't know.  They were supposed to let us know, but we have not heard anything.

I noticed that the points from last year have rolled over and we didn't lose them, so maybe there's hope that VBB will be announcing something soon as to what we can do with the points. Several of us are lobbying for coupons for free chocolate chips, etc.

Verlee,  It would be really neat to keep our points and get the free choc. chips,
evaporated milk, and maybe even Libby's pumpkin.

I don't think they are worth anything.  You might chat live with a representative and ask.  I don't think they know either.

Originally, we used to get something for them, but I don't think that they count for anything. It is fun just seeing the points of view of all the VBB members and chatting with them. It is a fun start to my day.

on the old edition of this site it was a kind of contest------------and the person with the most points won i believe a cookbook and apron

this new edition of the site is still, since november 2011----------------too  
                  gooey!!!

their word, not mine-------and i have had live chats and personal phone conversations with them and yet they still have not decided about the points------------------but they always sound promising and they are not asking for suggestions

Welcome . You will lile this site. Lots of really good recipes and good friends
to share stories with. Don't worry about the points as far as I know they mean
nothing. I have104000 of them and have never gotten anything for them.

Welcome to the site...I don't have any idea what VBB has in store for those points.  Mostly, I think everyone just watches them accumulate and hopes that something good will finally come along for which we can use them.  Here's hoping that you have some really good and different recipes that you will let us all in on.....we are always looking for something different (mostly those recipes that contain CHOCOLATE!!!)......so again, welcome to the site!

Another thing about points ....... didn't they used to drop to 0 on the first of the year?
I know that did not happen at the end of 2011.
Did it happen at the end of 2010?  I don't remember

I never got enough points on the old site to amount to anything.  Thank goodness the "gooey" is gone now and I can access the site with no problems.  Just all of a sudden it is ok.  It was all of a sudden "gooey" for months.  Weird.
Welcome to the site, Angela.  We just have a good time taking about chocolate, recipes, gas prices and weather.

Hi ANGELA M; in response to:new to the site
GRANA  here;
 Welcome aboard; You ask a question that many of   us have asked; At this time, there  is no  real/official  answer.  The points have no  value, yet though we keep hoping there wlll be a value to them in the future(perhaps we il be able to trade them in for (Nestle's)product coupons or baking supplies).I use them as a personal & private  tally that  I enjoy watching grow w/ my activity on the site. If you need something more than that; do as we often do & offer your suggestions for using the brownie points in the ( ask questions here) forum or in "LIVE CHAT" when you get connected to aNestle's  reresenttive .Perhaps if  enough of us ask the question, offering our suggestions Nestle's wil make a decision and let us know what they decide.Till then please jus  join  us in building friendships, helping each other out w/ Q&A &; recpes, enjoy our  stories about baking; our pets, hobbies& menus.It's all very warm & friendly, infomal  and a pleasant experience spending time  together w/  our  common  interests.Cool.
on them...Thanks
