How do the points and Rewards for Wellness incentive work?

You earn points whenever you complete an activity on Virgin Pulse. The more points you earn, the higher activity level you can reach, and the more you can earn in Rewards for Wellness co-share credits:

  • Earn $25/quarter for level 2 completion (5,000 points)
  • Earn $50/quarter for level 3 completion (10,000 points)
  • Earn $100/quarter for level 4 completion (15,000 points)

The maximum YEARLY incentive for Virgin Pulse activities is $400 (this excludes the Virgin Pulse Health Check, where you can earn an additional $50 upon completion). Whether you'd prefer to reach level 4 in one quarter or go slow and steady, you can choose the pace that works best for you while still reaching the max incentive. Please note: Points will reset to zero at the start of every quarter.

How can I check my progress?

To see which activity level you have reached, go to “Home” > “Rewards” > "How to Earn" in Virgin Pulse. To see a detailed breakdown of Virgin Pulse activities and points earned, go to “Home” > “Rewards” > "My Earnings" in Virgin Pulse.

Will my points roll over from quarter to quarter?

No. Points will reset to zero at the start of every quarter. If you are close to a rewards threshold in the current quarter, it would be a good idea to complete more activities and reach the next threshold before your points expire!
