For other types of donations, please visit https://thebloodconnection.org/about-blood/donation/
There will also be a new rewards program for platelet donors -- a tiered points system based on the number of donations in a year.
BRONZE: 0-6 donations per year, 500 points per donation
SILVER: 7-12 donations per year, 625 points per donation
GOLD: 13-18 donations per year, 750 points per donation
PLATINUM: 19-24 donations per year, 1,000 points per donation
These point values are what the donor will receive for each platelet donation until your status changes. When a platelet donor comes in to donate, you will automatically receive 500 points. The following day is when you will receive any additional points based on your status
TBC Rewards points can be redeemed for gift cards for various retailers. To learn more about Platelet Plus, visit https://thebloodconnection.org/platelet-plus/. For more information on redeeming TBC Reward Points, click here: https://thebloodconnection.org/donors/rewards/
