  • How quickly do I see my points after donation?

    Please wait at least 2-3 days after a donation for your reward points to appear within your account. 

  • How do I purchase an item in the loyalty store?

    Once signed in, choose Loyalty Store from the menu at the top of your screen. Click on the images of each gift to learn more about the item. Simply add your favorites to your cart, confirm your order, and checkout! You can also choose to donate your points back to the Blood Center, which helps us continue to improve our service to our partner hospitals and the wider community.

  • Why do I only have points from recent donations?

    Before July 2017, only donors enrolled in the loyalty program would receive points for their donations. Donors that created accounts before July 2017 will see their older points. However, those who create an account now will not be automatically credited for previous donations. The great news is that in our new system, everyone receives points regardless of creating an account! If you believe the point information on your account is incorrect, please contact the Donor Rewards Help Desk at: (800) 747-5401 or email IMPACT@mvrbc.org 

  • When will I receive the item I ordered from the loyalty store?

    You should receive your gift(s) within 4 weeks from the date the order was placed. Please note that some items may ship separately.

  • What if I don’t receive my order or I receive the wrong item?

    Please confirm that it has been 4 full weeks since your order. If you are still missing your order or have a question about the item received, call the Donor Rewards Help Desk at: (800) 747-5401 or email IMPACT@mvrbc.org 

  • What if I want to return my item?

    We want you to be satisfied with your gift choice. Most products can be returned in new condition, with the original packaging (including accessories, manuals and parts) within 60 days of the day you received the item, to your nearest donor center. If you do not live near a donor center or have any questions about returning an item, please contact us at IMPACT@mvrbc.org for additional options. 

    For items that arrived damaged or incorrectly, we will work to replace this for you to the best of our ability. 

    For items that do not fit or operate as expected, we will work to either find another option that works for you or refund your points spent on that item. 

    While rare, we do reserve the right to limit or decline an exchange or point refund on a case by case basis. 

  • What is the difference between donating WB, DRBC, and PHE?
    • Whole Blood (WB) donations extract several blood components, including: red cells, platelets, white cells, clotting factors, and plasma. Donating whole blood saves not one--but multiple lives. All blood types are qualified to donate. You can donate this procedure every 56 days and up to 6 times per year.
       
    • Red Cell Apheresis/Double Red Blood Cell (DRBC) donations use an automated procedure that enables the donor to give the equivalent of two units of red cells. Qualifying blood types include: A negative, B negative, O negative, and O positive. You can donate this procedure every 112 days and up to 3 times per year.
       
    • Apheresis (PHE) donations involve a process where the needed component is separated from whole blood and the remaining components are returned to the donor. All blood types are qualified to donate. You can donate this procedure every 7 days and up to 24 times per year.
  • Have additional questions about the Rewards Program?

    We are happy to help you with any questions or issues you may experience. Please contact the Donor Rewards Help Desk at (800) 747-5401 or email IMPACT@mvrbc.org
