Exciting news! As of August 24, we are officially able to offer our dedicated plasma and platelet donors extra points for our Donor Loyalty Store based on the amount of pints given during a single donation! Based on this new breakdown, platelet and plasma donors will have the base points per visit they would have earned, multiplied by the number of units given! While we know that not everyone is able to give multiple units, this is a way for us to honor those donors who can and do go the extra mile and sit in our donation chairs a little longer to help even more patients.

The updated points breakdown for all donation types is below.

DONATION POINT SYSTEM

Whole Blood Donations

If you are a whole blood, platelet or plasma donor, points are earned on this schedule, per donation, within a calendar year:

  • Visit 1 = 100 points
  • Visit 2 = 125 points
  • Visit 3 = 150 points
  • Visit 4+ = 175 points

Double Red Blood Cell Donations

If you donate double red blood cells (DRBC), points are earned on this schedule, per donation, within a calendar year:

  • DRBC Visit 1 = 200 points
  • DRBC Visit 2 = 225 points
  • DRBC Visit 3+ = 250 points

Platelet Donations

If you are a platelet donor, points are earned on this schedule, per donation, within a calendar year:

  • Visit 1 = 100 points x number of pints donated
  • Visit 2 = 125 points x number of pints donated
  • Visit 3 = 150 points x number of pints donated
  • Visit 4+ = 175 points x number of pints donated
