Mix and match Standing Order payment options

TripleClicks Members can now choose from among multiple payment methods to complete their Standing Order transactions. Just go to your Modify Standing Order page, and select your chosen payment option under Special Funding (SFI Affiliate Account, TC Member Account, or TCurrency). Our system will process your order total from this special funding source first. If necessary, the system will then charge the remaining balance through your credit card on file.

So, for example, if you prefer that your Standing Order total is taken from funds in your TripleClicks Member Account each month before charging your credit card, our system now makes this possible. Let’s say your Standing Order total is $29.95, and this month, you have $10 in your TC account. When processing your Standing Order for the month, our system will deduct the $10 from your TC account balance and charge the remaining $19.95 to your credit card.

Did you get your free TCredits this month?

TCreditsCommissions and perks have recently been processed for May, and we wanted to remind you that if you were at least a second-month EA (Executive Affiliate) last month, we’ve just added 10-24 free TCredits to your account!

To confirm how many TCredits you have available to use, just log in at http://www.tripleclicks.com. They will be listed next to your name in the top right corner.

TCredits allow you to take FULL advantage of your TripleClicks member benefits. Use your TCredits for member listings, to bid on Pricebenders Auctions, to participate in contests, play games, download songs from TripleClicks Music, and more.


NOTE: You can use your TCredits as you wish and at any time, but they do expire one year from receipt.

Powerful new PSA reassignment feature

Effective immediately, if you are an STL (Silver Team Leader) or higher in rank, you can now reassign PSAs anywhere in your organization,–as deep as 13 generations!  Note: Some restrictions apply; see FAQs below.

How to use this new feature to grow your business:

zig_ziglar_help_enoughAs presented in THE PLAN, your goal in SFI should be to develop five PTLs (Platinum Team Leader) on your first generation.  For this to happen of course, each of those five must develop a strong first generation (your second generation), too.  And this need carries on down the line.

With this new reassignment feature, you can actively help this “construction” along. That is, as you identify workers–even deep in your group, you can now reassign PSAs under them.

  • STLs can reassign as deep as 9th generation (under those in your 8th generation)
  • GTLs can reassign as deep as 11th generation (under those in your 10th generation)
  • PTLs and DTLs can reassign as deep as 13th generation (under those in your 12th generation)

In doing so, you directly help the persons you reassign affiliates under grow their business, earn higher commissions, and become Team Leaders–which in turn can simultaneously help everyone upline to them, in the same ways!

Think about it!  PSAs placed on your 13th generation can benefit a whopping TWELVE generations of affiliates in between you and them…plus of course you, too!  Twelve for the price of one!  You’ve heard of a “win/win.”  This is a “win/win/win/win/win/win/win/win/win/win/win/win!”

There’s a classic Zig Ziglar quote that goes,

“You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”

This is precisely what our reassignment tool is designed to help you do.  And with the new feature, you can now double, triple, quadruple, and even more, the power of your reassignments!  POWERFUL indeed!


Q: Can anyone be reassigned, regardless of rank?
No, here are the three rules:

  1. Team Leaders  (current or former) can never be reassigned by anyone ever.
  2. EAs (current or former) can ONLY be reassigned to your PSAs (to your first generation).
  3. Non-EAs can be reassigned to your full downline, but only if you yourself are a STL or higher.

Q: Will recipients of my reassignments know of the reassignments…and that they came from me?
Yes, for any reassignment you do, the new sponsor of your reassignments will receive an immediate email notification from us with the full name, contact information, etc. for the new person and instructions about welcoming them to their team.  This notification also names you as the person who reassigned the person to them and includes your email address.  Note: You’ll receive a separate notification to confirming each reassignment you do.

Q: Why allow only STLs and up to use this new feature?
This new feature can be abused.  Therefore, we need to restrict it to those with at least some kind of track record and that have something to lose should they be caught abusing the privilege.  If you’d like to use this new feature, just set your sights on becoming a Silver Team Leaders as soon as possible.  As soon as you qualify, you’ll have immediate access to it.

Q: Will I still earn the reassignment VP (5 AVP per reassignment) if I’m an STL and reassign beyond my first generation?
Yes, provided the persons being reassigned have at least 600 VP in the last 90 days.

Q: If I reassign someone beyond the generations I’m qualified to be paid on (e.g. 8 generations for a STL), how will I see them on my Genealogy–since my Genealogy only shows me the generations I’m qualified for?
It’s not necessarily an issue (as they’ll have new upline members to support them) but you would indeed “lose sight” of such persons on your Genealogy.  However, if you’re a STL or GTL, you can regain sight of them once you advance your rank.

Q: I’m a GTL.  At least when it comes to the Matching VP I earn each month, I can earn the same Matching VP no matter where I reassign someone, right?
Almost.  If you’re a GTL, you currently earn Matching VP down 10 generations.  So you’d earn the identical Matching VP regardless of whether you moved a PSA to your second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth, ninth, or tenth generation.  HOWEVER, If you reassigned someone to your 11th generation, you would not earn the Matching VP until you became a PTL (which earns Matching VP for 12 generations).  Similarly, as a STL, you’d earn the identical Matching VP regardless of whether you moved a PSA to your second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, or eighth generation…until you advanced your rank to claim addition generations.

Q: Wouldn’t I earn more by keeping all my PSAs for myself instead of reassigning them?
First of all, no one is suggesting reassigning ALL your PSAs.  You of course need to be building your own strong first generation.  But will you earn more or less by reassigning some of your PSAs?  A clearcut answer is impossible to know, but because of the way network marketing works, helping your downline members build their downlines has always been one of the most powerful ways to create excitement, activity, and momentum in your downline–an absolute KEY to building a successful business.  It’s worth repeating, “You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help enough other people get what they want.”  This quote by the great Zig Ziglar sums up in just 20 words the recipe for success in SFI…and our new reassignment tool helps you do it with unmitigated boldness!

Gold Streak is back!

h-goldstreak-2We’re happy to announce that our popular Eager Zebra game, Gold Streak, has returned.  You can play Gold Streak now (first two game FREE) at:


Of course, the reason Gold Streak was temporarily offline was because of the recent discovery that one or more persons had cataloged all the winning answers and were selling this information–allowing numerous people to readily cheat and to be essentially unbeatable.

Because there’s no reasonable way to combat cataloging now or in the future, we have been compelled to eliminate the TCredits Zackpot from Gold Streak.  Because there should be little if any interest in cheating to win a game that does not have a financial prize, this levels the playing field–giving everyone the opportunity to win the game, so we hope everyone will try the game again now.

Speaking of winning, we’re now recognizing the top TEN streaks each day (ties included), so you’ll have an even greater opportunity to win now!  Win badges, bragging rights, and compete for the top spots on the three Gold Streak leaderboards:

Also, for each TCredit spent playing Gold Streak, you’ll earn 5 MRP (Member Rewards Points) and one Action VP for each entry where a TCredits is spent (up to 200 AVP monthly for all Eager Zebra games).

Special Note:  For those who had a Streakasphere streak busted when the game was taken offline, your streak has been restored!  You’ll just need to reach the Streakasphere at least once today to maintain your streak.

We realize that many of our Gold Streak fans are disappointed that a Zackpot will no longer be one of the prizes.  We hate it too, but it’s really the only feasible option to keep the game available for play and FAIR for all.  The good news, is we’re getting very close to debuting our latest and greatest new Eager Zebra games.  So, if Gold Streak has lost its allure with you, that’s okay, because multiple new games you’re sure to love are on the horizon!

One more thing:  Since Gold Streak’s debut in September 2014, some have struggled to understand that it is a game about guessing how other people think, and NOT a game based on facts.  To enjoy the game, it’s vital that you understand this distinguishing characteristic.  Also, before playing, we also STRONGLY recommend you review our “tips for winning” article here:
