If you have never donated before, you will become a Commit for Life Bronze member upon your first attempted donation. You will receive a welcome packet in the mail with a special gift and all the information you need to get the most out of your membership. Create a Digital Donor account within 30 days from your donation to earn points for donating and redeem your points in the Donor Rewards Store.
Whole blood donation: 30 points
Automated donation: 45 points
Automated donation with platelet or double red cell: 65 points
Appointment kept bonus: 10 points for appointments made at least 24 hours in advance
To begin earning points, you must create a Digital Donor account. You can do so by visiting giveblood.org or downloading our Digital Donor app available on iOS and Android devices. New donors and those who don’t have an account need to create one within 30 days of donating or you will lose their points.
Log in to your Digital Donor account and visit the Donor Rewards Store. Ensure you have the updated email address listed in your account. To update your email address, access My Account in your Digital Donor account and select Change Communication Preferences.
Your gift card will be distributed electronically, so we must have your current email address on file. If you order a gift card through the Donor Rewards Store and don't see it in your email inbox, check your junk mail. Be sure and add us to your safe sender list, so you won’t miss any updates.
When a donor reaches 15 months with no donation activity, his or her points will be donated back to Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center. Inactive donors are encouraged to resume their donations before reaching the 15-month mark to keep their points from expiring and, more importantly, help save more lives.
Please note: To begin earning points, you must create a Digital Donor account. You can also download our Digital Donor app available on iOS and Android devices. New donors and those who don’t have an account need to create one within 30 days of donating or they will lose their points.
