April 2017 Update



A new improvement is being introduced to the system as of today, April 24th.

The moderator group has reviewed Rewards-related activity for the first 3 months of the year and has observed a number of unintended outcomes. As the result, in order to cut down on the number of useless posts observed in forums that started after rewards system introduction, a new requirement has been suggested by a moderator group.

The requirement was put in place today. From now on, users to have a minimum number of Kudos in order to progress through the levels in the GMAT Club Rewards and continue earning points. What this means is that members will not be able to reach a particular level, for example, Gold level without having at least 50 Kudos. If you are in this situation, your point earning will suspend until you are able to earn the sufficient number of kudos. If you are wondering how to improve your Kudos situation, consider posting helpful posts that go beyond chit-chat or simple question replies. Think about what you would give Kudos for and it won't take long until your efforts are rewarded.


The following Kudos requirements have been set in place:

1 Bronze 0 kudos
2 Silver 25 kudos
3 Gold 50 kudos
4 Platinum 100 kudos
5 Diamond 200 kudos

Rewards Terms and Conditions:
By using the GMAT Club Rewards system, you agree to the following terms and conditions.
GMAT Club reserves the right to change the terms of this promotion/offering without prior notice.
Prizes may be subject to change and some prizes are limited in quantity.
Point-earning is not retroactive. Points can only be earned after the introduction of activities/badges/rewards; previous activities/purchases do not qualify.
All redemptions are final.
Points cannot be combined between multiple accounts or transferred from account to account.
GMAT Club staff, experts, tutors, or test-prep/admissions consulting representatives are not eligible for reward redemptions; they can still earn points, however.
The names and trademarks are owned by their respective owners.
Once you redeem a reward, GMAT Club will provide you with instructions to activate/claim it via email or private message on the forum.
Redemptions must be used or activated within 30 days of redemption.
In some cases if schedule, locations, or specific offerings are not available for your redemption, we will work with you to provide an offering of equal or greater value or offer you a points refund.
Some redemptions may be limited by time or usage, such as only available one per user.
We hope that our reward system will encourage collaboration and fosters a healthy competitive setting; if we see abuse of the system, we will change it to better suit our mission and purpose.

Please note that today we introduced another update to the Rewards System.
Previously rewards points were only added and never subtracted. For example, if you started a topic that was already discussed and it was merged or deleted by moderators, one got the credit and points for that activity, even though, they should not have.

Starting today, we are able to track (retroactively as well) when activities that have earned points are reversed and in those cases, points will be deducted.

Trying to keep it fair for those who are doing the right thing.
Thank you.

Just to add to what Keats said, every time you post a comment in a discussion, a notification, email, or app notification is triggered to a number of people.

When you have a few of these triggered and they all seem to be about nothing, people stop checking, replying and responding. There are already a few members whose posts I ignore (or sometimes delete). You don't want to join these ranks.

PS. You will notice I have not used caps, smilies, or excessive punctuation marks in my post. Perhaps I am old-fashione but perhaps that's because I do not use that style in my work and professional correspondence. The way you present yourself is the way people perceive you.

Never got any :P

Hi bb,

Good amendment !!
But, I have one small question - is the above kudos include already redeemed ones.

For instance, I redeemed my initial 25 kudos for GMATCLUB test and now left with only 18 kudos. So, the counting is 18 or 43 ?


Redeeming kudos does not have an impact/not included. Only the earned Kudos matter. In your above example, it would be considered 43.
However, keep in mind that the same rule applies to the Rewards - if you have earned 199 points and lack kudos to move to Gold with 200, your point earning will be suspended, even if you redeem points.

Hi bb

Thanks for the great efforts, I have 99 points and 11 Kudos, so I still need 14 Kudos and 1 point to move to the silver tier. I noticed that I don't earn points for more than 2 days, is this because I still need 14 Kudos? and if this is the case would I earn my lost points retroactively?

Thanks,
NNDD

Hi NNDD ,

You need 9 more kudos to start earning points and there will not be any retroactivity. You will start earning points from the day when you will have 25 kudos.

Thanks.

AsadAbu I think my problem is with the Kudos which is irrelevant for me to ask people to give me a kudos for my replies which they are normal ones.

how does one get a bottoms up badge?? I took 30 timers a day for many days but no luck :(


Hi. Thanks for the question. That badge takes 1 timer per day, 30 times. So you have to take 30 timers on 30 diff days. You will have it in about a month.

Thx.

We have added 2 new activities/badges this week

1. GMAT Club Premium Membership 14 Points (7 + 7)
2. GMAT Club Tests- 20 Points (10 + 10)
You can see all GMAT Club Rewards Activities/Badges here

These are rewards that also immediately trigger a badge, which means they are worth Double Points!


P.S. Unfortunately rewards are not retroactive. These can only be earned after the introduction of activities/badges/rewards
