The Wellsphere Points Program


 
The Wellsphere Points Program offers a fun, easy way for you to earn recognition and WellPrizes for staying on your path to feeling good, and for helping others stay on their paths!

Earning Status

As you accumulate Wellsphere Points, you'll earn status and recognition in the Wellsphere Community! The longer you stay on your path to feeling good, and the more you help others stay on their paths, the higher your status in the community. When you achieve each new status level, you'll receive a new badge for your profile to show off your status!
Here are the Wellsphere Point status levels you can achieve:
Bronze  100 - 499 Wellsphere Points
Silver  500 - 999 Wellsphere Points
Gold  1,000 - 4,999 Wellsphere Points
Platinum  5,000+ Wellsphere Points

Earning a Well Prize

Need a little extra motivation to stay on your path? Choose a WellPrize to work toward from our WellPrize Catalog or make up your own. Once you've earned the number of Wellsphere Points indicated on your WellPrize, you can buy it for yourself - or better yet, have a friend, family member or employer sponsor you!
When you choose a WellPrize, your WellPrize challenge begins. Every Wellsphere Point you earn from that point on will count towards your WellPrize, and once you've accumulated the number of Wellsphere Points indicated, you'll have 'earned' your WellPrize.
