I've read that you get 1000 points for each month. I know they're meaningless, but I feel like I'm getting jipped.

Maybe there's a glitch, or they did away with that?

My friend has been on CR since 2013.... He only has 29 cr points
He never gets online though so maybe it's something to do with how many times you get online on the site and forums?

Well, you probably have to do something else to receive them.. I counted like 32 monthly payments or so, and I'm not at 32,000 or more.

I've moved this to the Site Support/Minor Questions forum. Getting 1000 points monthly for being a premium member was broken and sporadic for a while, and at some point (I think about a year ago) was discontinued altogether. Premium members can now do things like start new threads without a minimum number of points, and get points in all the usual ways but do not automatically get any points just for being premium members.

He probably hasn't been a premium member that whole time. The automatic points were only for premium members, but was broken, then discontinued.

What even do the points do? Do you get free offers or are they just fancy dressing by your name?

Pretty much. They're meant to show how active a user you are; comments, forum posts, etc., grant a certain number of points. In the past, you'd also automatically get 1000/month just for being a paid member, but that is often disabled these days.
