VERSAPOINTS NO LONGER EXPIRE!

Effective immediately, VersaPoints will no longer expire. Every VersaPoint you earn…you keep!

SPECIAL NOTES:

One of the reasons for this change is to simplify and improve the E365 contest. That is, every E365 contestant will now be able to use all points they’ve scored for the entire one-year contest. And this is just one of many great improvements we’re making to our popular E365 contest. Be watching for the big announcement with ALL the details.

We are still working on some of the programming to display total, all-time VP everywhere at the Affiliate Center. Please bear with us as we make these changes across the Affiliate Center over the coming days.

Even more improvements and simplification on how VersaPoints are scored, used, and displayed are coming soon. Stay tuned!

NEW WAY TO GO EA2…IMMEDIATELY!

Going Fast-Track Gold provided immediate EA2 status, but as announced, the Fast-Track program has been discontinued as of Monday, June 6th. As as replacement, effective immediately, EA2 status will be granted immediately upon setting up a minimum 1500 VP Standing Order (upon successful processing of order). No need to wait until one’s second month as an EA; you can go straight to EA2 your very first day in SFI.

Being an EA2 means you’re qualified for all of the great regular EA benefits. PLUS, you qualify for the following additional benefits, starting immediately:

1. Receive 10 free bonus TCredits ($5.90 value) every month, paid with your commissions

2. Can transfer TCredits to your PSAs/CSAs for rewards, incentives, contests, etc.

Note: If you’re the sponsor or an upline member of an EA2, you start earning Matching VP immediately–from the very first VersaPoint earned by your new EA2s.

41,915 FREE VP AWARDED IN LATEST SPIN & WIN

Did you miss out on the most recent Spin & Win contest, held between May 25, 2016 through May 27, 2016? Affiliates who spotted the Spin & Win notice–announced in the SFI Rules Of Success newsletter mailed out on May 25th–and who entered the free contest grabbed 41,915 free Action VP! Readers are leaders!

Here’s how Spin & Win works:

At least once every month–and up to three times every month–we include a blurb in our newsletters announcing that a new Spin & Win contest is underway. NOTE: There is no mention of Spin & Win in the subject line. You must read each newsletter you receive in its entirety to find the new Spin & Win contest blurb. When you find it, get to the Web page URL referenced as soon as you can (the entry period will typically be 48 to 72 hours, but could be less).

When you arrive at the Spin & Win Web page, answer the simple questions there about SFI or TripleClicks. Answer correctly and you will get one free spin of the VP wheel–with a chance to win up to 1,000 VersaPoints (everyone is guaranteed to win at least 5 VP per spin). There is NO obligation and NO purchase is necessary. Just enter the correct answers, spin the wheel, and you’ll be a instant winner…with up to 1,000 VersaPoints added immediately to your account–just for reading your SFI e-mails!

TRIPLECLICKS TIP OF THE WEEK:

Use your own bids at Pricebenders Auctions (https://www.tripleclicks.com/indexAuctions.php) to build your business!

How can you parlay the fun and excitement of Pricebenders auctions into a money-saving way to build your SFI business?

Easy!

1. Bid on money-saving auctions for PSAs, CSAs, TCredits subscriptions (eliminating the need for a monthly Standing Orders), custom prestige domains, and gift cards for marketing. You can also bid on silver and gold items to build an invaluable portfolio that can become more valuable every year.

But even if you don’t win a Pricebenders auction…you STILL win!

2. You get 5 Member Rewards Points (MRP) every time you place a bid–10 MRP per bid on DP (double MRP) auctions. Use these MRP to redeem for any product at TripleClicks!

3. You’ll also get 1 VP per bid–up to 1000 VP a month…a GREAT way to help Team Leaders and aspiring TLs maintain their rank of the accompanying benefits.

4. Build your downline with the free Pricebenders Bid & Build tool. You can win up to one brand new PSA for every 10 bids. PLUS: Each time you win a full PSA, you’ll also receive a FREE bonus entry in the Daily Grand, where you can win additional business-building prizes, including CSAs, TCredits, VersaPoints, and more!

8 WAYS TO REDUCE (OR ELIMINATE) SHIPPING COSTS AT TRIPLECLICKS

Shipping costs got you down? No problem! Here are several easy ways to get your favorite products at TripleClicks without being weighed down by the high cost of shipping:

1. Shop the ECA(s) located in your country or region. TripleClicks features thousands of ECAs from all over the world. You can earn unlimited VP buying from your local ECAs while greatly reducing shipping costs and delivery times. To find your local ECAs, use the links located on your ECA tab at the Affiliate Center.

2. Connect with your local ECAs. Some ECAs occasionally offer special reduced and/or free shipping promotions. By being connected with them, you’ll be alerted to these special promotions. To connect with your local ECAs, use the link located next to your country’s flag on your ECA tab (if available).

3. As a Pricebenders Auction winner living in the U.S. and Canada, you get your winning item shipped free! And international auction winners can opt to have their Pricebenders items shipped to a United States address at no additional cost as well! Just enter the name of the friend or family member and their U.S. address in the Ship-To fields during checkout.

4. Many ECAs offer the “Will-Call” option–which allows you to pick up your orders personally at their local store. Look for the Will-Call option at checkout, or select “Local Pickup” from the search column to the left side of any product category listing at TripleClicks.

5. “Take the bull by the horns” and sign up ECAs in your area! By doing so, you’ll get the exact products that you want to promote and sell, and because they’re local businesses, shipping can be greatly reduced or eliminated. Best of all, you can be earning lifetime royalties every time any SFI affiliate or other TC member buys or sells the products of the ECAs you’ve referred. To learn more about this powerful opportunity, see the ECA Referral Guide at: https://www.sfimg.com/Training/ECAStrategies

6. Look for ECA products offering free shipping. You can find these items by using the “Ships to me for free” filter in the TripleClicks Search column.

7. Buy digital products at TripleClicks. “Mighty TCredits,” for example, are 100% digital can be delivered to your TripleClicks account instantly and have no shipping cost. But there are hundreds of other digital choices with no shipping costs, too. Check them out here: https://www.tripleclicks.com/indexDigital.php

8. Some ECAs may charge more than they should. Use the “Report Abuse” link on their product details pages to report excessive shipping costs. If enough TripleClicks members do this and don’t buy the ECA’s products because of it, they will get the message and lower their shipping costs.

TESTIMONIALS OF THE WEEK

Affiliates weigh in on the recent announcement of non-expiring VersaPoints:

https://news.sfimg.com/2016/06/01/versapoints-no-longer-expire/

“This will really help new affiliates going for E365 contest. A welcome move. New affiliates are going to love it and old ones will enjoy it too. Thanks Gery.”
–Gyanendra P., INDIA

“Sounds great! No more Power Ranks going down due to expired VP!!”
–Chris E., NIGERIA

“This greatly helps those people in E365 as they compete to be crowned Champion. Members often get deflated when all of a sudden they drop down the ladder because VPs they have been accumulating have expired. Now they will all know who to beat to be Champion because the VPs they see are the actual VPs that will determine the winner. There is also that benefit that Gery and others have talked about. No longer will Support and sponsors have to answer questions from members as to why they have lost VPs. Retaining VPs is a very good move.”
–Nimo P., NEW ZEALAND

“Oh my! Thank you SFI for continuously making our business very competitive!”
–Gloria T., PHILIPPINES

“SFI, you are really GREAT. This is your best feature…that you constantly bring welcome changes to the site. Love being here.”
–Anjali R., INDIA

“I called this a WOW change, and it could not have come at a better time. I welcome it with all my SFI heart. Thank You Gery. One of the best changes ever.”
–Elvera M., USA

“I’m totally THRILLED. This is AMAZING. THANK YOU GERY.”
–Cheryl W., AUSTRALIA
