Power Platelets Program

January 1 – December 31, 2022

With a shelf life of only 5-7 days, there is a constant need for platelets year-round. Platelets are needed by many patients and medical procedures like;  cancer treatments, organ or bone marrow transplants, victims of traumatic injuries, and patients undergoing open heart surgery. Thankfully, platelets can be given every 7 days and up to 24 times a year.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need to do anything to sign-up?

All platelet donors are automatically enrolled in the Power Platelets program to earn rewards.

How do I earn points?

One platelet donation equals one point. Donate on Double Point days for twice the points.

When are Double Point Days?

NEW: Starting April 1, 2022 : Every Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday are double point days! Be on the lookout for additional double point day announcements throughout the year!

Previously only every Sunday and Wednesday are double point days.

Do I still earn a point if I am deferred at the time of my donation?

An attempted donation will count as a point. If you make the effort to donate, you still earn a point even if you are deferred!

How many points do I need to earn a reward?

For every five points within a quarter, you will receive an email with a code to redeem Bloodworks gear or gift cards.

When will I be emailed my reward code?

Once you reach your 5 points, you will receive an email the following Monday.

Example: If you donate on a Tuesday and reach your 5 points, you will receive an email the following Monday with your code.

Can I earn more than one reward in a quarter?

Yes! Every 5 points earns you a reward.

What are the dates for Program Quarters?

Power Platelets is divided into four separate program quarters throughout the year. The rewards will change with each quarter.

Quarter 3: July 1 – September 30, 2022

Do my points expire? Can I carry over points to the next quarter?

Points do not carry over between quarters. Points may only be redeemed for the prizes during that quarter.

Example: If I get five points during January 1 March 31, 2022, the reward code will only be redeemable for those rewards. Codes will not be redeemable for the rewards for the following quarters.

How long do I have to redeem?

Reward codes must be redeemed within 45 days of receiving the reward code. 

Pro Tip: All items are available “while supplies last”, so make sure you redeem for the rewards of your choice!

What happens if reward items run out?

We try to keep up with demand on items, however, not all items can be reordered due to vendor limitations.

While supplies last.
