If you have donated blood with Stanford Blood Center, then you’ve been enrolled in our Loyalty Program. Each time you present to donate, you’ll be awarded points that you may redeem in our online Donor Loyalty Store. You’ll also have online access to your historical vital stats such as hemoglobin and blood pressure, as well as donation history. It’s our way of thanking donors for their generous support of our community’s patients!
Donation Point System
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
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
NEW: Bonus Points!
In order to incentivize donations when and where we most need them most for patients, we are offering additional points for the following:
- Center Visit = 50 points
- Appointment Scheduled and Kept = 25 points
- Time of Day (12:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m., +/- 10 minutes) = 25 points
- Critical Need (for seasonal lows or days of type-specific need) = 50 points
Donors can choose to redeem points for SBC branded items in our Donor Loyalty Store or can donate their points back to one of our community partners.
Donate Your Points Back
The Donate Your Points Back Program (which is part of our Donor Loyalty Store) is just another way that SBC gives back to our community. Through this program, donors can choose to “donate” their points to one of our community partners. The number points donated gets converted to a dollar amount and at the beginning of each fiscal year, and the money is then presented to the partner.
