There are a few steps to take to not get banned from CheckPoints.Most important, be smart. Don’t scan all of the items every day. I did this for about 3 weeks and did not get banned. But I think that if you keep doing this, you will eventually be banned. A few weeks ago the Deli Fresh Lunch Meat was bugged so that you could scan the product unlimited times. I did not try to take advantage of this, but I know a few people who obtained over 10,000 points by scanning the item over and over. CheckPoints banned them because of this.
Also, a few weeks ago I saw that CheckPoints started asking for the price of items. At first I thought this was just them getting information from the stores. But one day I scanned the 50 pk of Crayola for the 12 pk of Crayola at the store and it asked me for the price. I was confused as what price I should put. Should I put the 12 pk price (which I couldn’t find at the time) or should I put the 50 pk price. Well, I ended up putting the more expensive 50 pk price and a few minutes later I got an angry warning email from CheckPoints explaining the rules and that I might get banned. So with that my friends, I have started putting the prices with the bar codes I provide for you. =)
