Tyndale Rewards Program

Tyndale House Publishers has recently started a free rewards program, available to anyone—including you! The Tyndale Rewards program is designed to provide you with opportunities to get books and Bibles for absolutely nothing. If you join, you’ll have access to inspiring literature, Bibles, special promotional offers, and a whole lot more. Tyndale publishes the New Living Translation (NLT) of the Bible. Joining this program would be a great way to get access to the NLT if you want a copy or want to give one to a friend.

The more participation you have with the program, the more points you earn—and points translate into free stuff! You can earn points by referring friends, completing surveys, sharing a link on Twitter or Facebook, joining a focus group, enrolling in email subscriptions, or writing reviews.

Other member incentives include a free gift on your birthday, along with opportunities to share your personal recommendations and feedback concerning Tyndale products.

You can enroll in the program today and start earning points toward Bibles and other books. Again, it is completely free, and if you join by clicking that link, I get points toward more free stuff. You win. I win. That’s a good thing.
