Win $2000! July Badge Quest Bounty rolls over!

badge_quest

It’s official; no one had the winning number (0161) for the July Badge Quest Bounty cash drawing.  Therefore, by rule, the July pot will automatically be added to the August pot, meaning it will exceed $2000.00! AND…there will be a guaranteed winner!

Qualify for your chance to win $2000 or more now!

Be sure you qualify for an entry to win the big pot by advancing your Badge Quest level this month (or maintaining Grand Master or Grand Master Elite status)! For more information on the Badge Quest Bounty cash drawing and choosing your Bounty Number, see this Knowledge Base article.


New Localvantia badges!

With nearly two thousand approved pre-registrations in over 100 cities across the world already in, Localvantia is on its way to becoming a major new SFI program!  But we want to get many, many more affiliates actively involved in pre-registering merchants so that Localvantia can explode with customer activity when we formally launch later this year.

With that in mind, we are excited today to announce three brand new Localvantia badges—available immediately to all SFI affiliates:


screenshot_02 (1)Badge #1 recognizes both pre-registrations and final registrations (final registrations being the merchant opting in as an official Localvantia merchant).

  • Earn the basic badge with just 10 approved pre-registrations, and also earn 200 Badge Quest points.
  • 25 registrations (a minimum of 50% must be final registrations) adds bronze trim and earns you 400 Badge Quest points.
  • 50 registrations (a minimum of 50% must be final registrations) adds silver trim and earns you 600 Badge Quest points.
  • 100 registrations (a minimum of 50% must be final registrations)  adds gold trim and earns you 800 Badge Quest points.

TIP! By amassing a large number of pre-registrations now, you’ll be poised to quickly add bronze, silver, or gold trim to your badge (and a prodigious heap of Badge Quest points) when Localvantia formally launches in October.

Badges #2 and #3 recognize SFI’s elite merchant recruiters:

  • Earn the 200 Club badge with 200 registrations (a minimum of 50% must be final registrations).  The 200 Club also earns you 1500 Badge Quest points.
  • Earn the 500 Club badge with 500 registrations (a minimum of 50% must be final registrations).  The 500 Club also earns you 3000 Badge Quest points.

New for August: “Green Streak” badges!

Today we are introducing two new badges available to all SFI affiliates:

i-green_streak

Our new “green streak” badges (see examples above) are awarded for turning the EZ (Eager Zebra) tab and PB (Pricebenders) tab green each day.


EZ

  • Turn your EZ tab green for 5 consecutive days to earn the basic badge and 100 Badge Quest points.
  • 60-day streak adds bronze trim and earns you 200 Badge Quest points.
  • A 180-day streak adds silver trim and earns you 300 Badge Quest points.
  • A 365-day streak adds gold trim and earns you 400 Badge Quest points.

PB

  • Turn your PB tab green for 5 consecutive days to earn the basic badge and 100 Badge Quest points.
  • 60-day streak adds bronze trim and earns you 200 Badge Quest points.
  • A 180-day streak adds silver trim and earns you 300 Badge Quest points.
  • A 365-day streak adds gold trim and earns you 400 Badge Quest points.

IMPORTANT NOTES:

  1. Vacation Mode does NOT protect green streaks.  If you miss a day, your streak ends, and you’ll have to start over (Badge Quest points are also forfeited). 
  2. There has been no tracking of turning the EZ and PB tabs green until today.  Therefore, everyone starts at zero today.
