LOYALTY REWARDS PROGRAM:
By using your Season Ticket Card you will gain loyalty points for the 2012 season. As you surpass different reward levels you will be invited to participate in unique experiences and exclusive events during the year. These loyalty points can also be used to bid on items such as game-worn jerseys, access to exclusive events and unique once-in-a-lifetime opportunities that are only available for card-carrying season ticket holders.
Loyalty Point System:
The Loyalty Point System is based on the number of points each individual seat on your account accrues over the year. For example, if you have four seats on your account and three of the seats reach a specific benefit level, then three of the four seats will receive the benefit. Points will be reset at the end of each season.
How do I earn points?
There are many ways to earn points throughout the year, but the easiest way is just by coming to matches and scanning in using your Season Ticket Card. You can receive bonus points for entering the stadium early and Union victories. Keep an eye out for more opportunities to earn loyalty points throughout the year.
How do I use my points?
There are two ways to spend your loyalty points:
1. Loyalty Rewards Levels: As you gain points and surpass different levels you will be invited to participate in unique experiences and exclusive events listed below (per seat). Prize levels are as follows:
2. Season Ticket Holder Auctions: You can use your loyalty points by bidding on auction items that will be made available throughout the year. You will be able to use the points from any season ticket card on your account for auction items. Points used in auctions will be deducted evenly from the seats on your account. For example, seat 1 on your account has 300 points and seat 2 has 200 points. You have the winning bid of 400 points on an item. In this scenario, 200 points will be deducted from seat 1 and 200 points will be deducted from seat 2.
