Come for the energy — stay for the points! 

As you probably know, whenever you beat your forecast during #OhmHours or a device turns off during an AutoOhm, you'll earn cash (added to your account as points). And points are worth money! Once you've earned at least 1,000 points,  you can redeem them using our cash-out flow.  

A few notes:

  1. You can cash out your points once each month. If you've already cashed out in the last 30 days, you'll need to wait to cash-out again.

  2. You can see all the codes you currently have on your account by clicking "Cash Out" in the Rewards section of your dashboard. Then on the next page, scroll down to find "Your Codes".

Here's how to cash out your points:

Click “Cash Out” in the Rewards widget of your dashboard. It looks like this: 

You'll be taken to the cash-out flow, where you can choose how you want to cash-out your points. It'll look like this:

Cash Out to PayPal

You can have your points cashed out to your PayPal account. How much are points worth? Think of each point as a penny, so for example, 8801 points would translate out to $88.01.

Please note that if you withdraw more than $400, our staff must do a manual approval which can take up to 48 business hours.

Amazon or Target gift card

You can cash your points out for a gift card to Target or Amazon. Your gift card will be sent to the email address you have on file you if you chose this option.

(Target and Amazon gift cards are only available to users in the United States)
Target and Amazon gift cards are non-refundable.

OhmConnect store credit

You can convert your points to a gift card redeemable in the OhmConnect store.  
We'll round up your points if you get a store credit, giving you more bang for your buck! For instance, if you had 4157 points, you could get a $50 gift card instead of $41.57.
Learn more about the OhmConnect Store and store credit policies in the Store section.

OhmConnect store credit codes are non-refundable, and cannot be combined with any other offer or code.

Send others points (Coming soon)

You can send your points to another OhmConnect user, if they are someone you referred to OhmConnect or if they're on your team. Heads up: you can only send them points after they've reached Silver Status.

You can also choose how many points you'd like to send to another user, in case you'd rather just send some of your points to your friend, and keep the rest. 

NOTE: This option is currently disabled and will be coming back soon.

Donate to a Charity (Coming soon)

You can donate your points to a variety of charities and schools that we've partnered with. Scroll through charities and schools when you click the “Donate” option.  If you’d like to see a school or charity added, please email us at and we can help you build a team to have it added as an option.

NOTE: This option is currently disabled and will be coming back soon.

If you are in the United States and OhmConnect has paid you $600 or more in a calendar year, we need to collect an IRS W9 form to send you a 1099-MISC at the end of the year.   As you get close to hitting that threshold we will need to process the form before releasing additional payments to you.

You can either fill out your W9 form here or download the IRS form, fill it out, sign it and send it to us by email to

The W9 takes about 5 to 7 business days to process.
