Here's the all important piece I am sure you would like to understand.
The rewards system is pretty straight forward.
There are 4 types.
- Monthly vouchers
- Quarterly prizes
- Project specific incentives.
UNDERSTANDING THE POINTS SYSTEM
Each project/task has points associated with it. These will be clearly labeled up front so you know what you are earning.
To be clear, the points do not equate to $.
But rather, they are an indicator of time spent on the projects to help determine who has participated the most. At the end of each month the points are tallied up. Everyone based on their accumulated points receives a ‘payment' via an email voucher.
Points do not accumulate across months.
It's essentially 10 points per minute. We estimate the time allocated to complete the task. So if a task is estimated to take 10 minutes, I would earn you 100 points.
Some tasks which might take more thinking or involve a bit more, will be loaded with more points to reflect the effort required.
Monthly vouchers will be emailed to members at the end of each month based on the amount of points you have accumulated.
7 Eleven will allocate small prizes which can be redeemed through your email vouchers in store.
The top 10% of people will receive the vouchers with the highest value. Prizes will be different each month.
Everyone else will also receive a reward for their time, but it will be of a smaller nature. Once again, We'll keep this fresh each month.
At the end of the month, we'll tally the points and it will take a week before the previous months vouchers will be issued. So you will get them first week of the following month.
To be eligible for our quarterly prizes you must be in the top tier of points earners for the quarter. This means our Good Callers who participate the most for the quarter will be in the running to receive a large prize.
Two Good Callers with the most points in our top tier of points earners for the quarter will be eligible for one of the following rewards:
The winners may decide which of the options they want. Only one option can be chosen per prize winner - prizes cannot be altered once chosen, so choose carefully.

Bose Soundlink Mini Bluetooth speaker II (Carbon)
In the event of Good Callers having the same amount of points: We fill first use forum contribution as a tiebreaker. This does not mean that the person with the most posts in the forum wins; judging is based on quality, not quantity, of contribution to the forum. If you are insightful, constructive, instigate conversation and are helpful to other Good Callers you are in with a better shot!
In the event that we cannot split participants based on their forum contribution, as well as having an euqal number of YGC points, we will draw the winner at random to determine winners for that quarter. That way, participants with the top tier of points will have equal chance to win the quarterly prize.
Awarded prizes cannot be refunded/exchanged for the cash equivalent. Prizes can also not be altered once chosen.
PROJECT SPECIFIC INCENTIVES:
There are some projects that may take people a long amount of time. For these, we think it is fair that we reward your efforts with specific payments.
These may come in many forms:
Either way, we would make this known upfront. If it isn't stated, there would be no additional rewards.
But every project earns points and puts you in the running to get some great rewards.
