What is the GoVets Medallion Program?

Worldclass Loyalty, Referrals & Donations

The GoVets Medallion Program is our way to reward you for your continued loyalty, referrals and more. The program includes several "incremental" tiers within higher rewards, discounts, coupons & bonuses to you and your Giving Community, along with higher donations to your favorite Veteran Nonprofit cause.:

Benefits

Your Benefits increase with every Tier Upgrade

  • Higher Discounts
  • Higher GoVets Cash Rewards
  • More Multi-Use Coupon Codes
  • Additional Free Gifts and Bonuses
  • Higher Referral GoVets Cash Rewards 
  • Higher GoVets Giving to your Veteran Nonprofit Beneficiary

Medallion Tiers & Upgrade Paths

Upgrade your way through five (5) Medallion Tiers: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond.  Loyal GoVets Members have several options to upgrade their Medallion Tier:

  • Upgrade Path 1: GoVets Member Order Milestones
  • Upgrade Path 2: GoVets Member Sales Milestones
  • Upgrade Path 3: Giving Community Order Milestones
  • Upgrade Path 4: Giving Community Sales Milestones

Once you attain a given Medallion Tier, you are guaranteed to maintain all benefits for this Tier for at least six (6) months and you can also upgrade your Tier to the next level during this 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window.  If you attain the required Medallion Milestone(s) for your Tier, you will immediately benefit from another 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window when the current Upgrade Window expires.  Unlike other Loyalty Programs, GoVets Members will NOT completely lose their upgraded status if they are unable to attain the required Medallion Milestone(s).  Instead, once the Medallion Upgrade Window expires, your Medallion Status will decrease by only one (1) Tier and your Medallion Upgrade Window will renew for another 6-month period, giving you another opportunity to attain the desired Tier.

We have structured the Medallion program to be inclusive of our diverse customer base so everyone has a chance to reach and maintain the highest medallion tier possible - Not only based on your buying activities on GoVets, but based on your engagement with your peers, community, social networks, and more.    

Designed with Giving in Mind

The GoVets Medallion Program was created alongside The GoVets Giving Initiative. This means that every aspect of the Medallion Program takes the idea of supporting Veteran Nonprofits causes to the next level. We are committed to being transparent in showing our commitment to our customers and our beneficiaries on GoVets Giving - A frictionless & socially-responsible crowdfunding source for Veteran Nonprofits!

Do Medallion Members get any special Coupon Codes?

Answer. Yes.  GoVets Medallion Members get access to Endless Coupon Codes.  That is, Members benefit from MULTI-USE coupons that renew each quarter.  You can also use coupon codes from EVERY Tier Up to your Current Medallion Tier. Example: Gold Members can use the GOLD Coupon Code 10 times (10x), the SILVER Code 5 times (5x) & the BRONZE code 3 times (3x) each quarter.  The maximum discount per coupon code: $100.00.

 

Medallion Members have access to Endless Coupon Codes that Renew Each Quarter!

How often can I receive a GoVets Medallion Upgrade Gift?

Answer. Your Medallion Upgrade Gift is available every time your account is upgraded to the next available Medallion Tier or when you reach your existing Medallion Tier within a new Medallion Upgrade Window.  The Medallion Upgrade Gift is automatically deposited in your GoVets Cash Rewards balance as soon as you meet one of these requirements

Example:   As a new GoVets Member, if you reach the Medallion Tier Milestones and earn an upgrade from the Bronze Medallion Tier to the Silver Medallion Tier, you’ll receive 25 GoVets Dollars in your account.  During your Silver Medallion Upgrade Window, if you meet one of the Medallion Tier Milestones to earn the Gold Medallion Tier, you will immediately receive 100 GoVets Dollars in your account, your account will be upgraded to the Gold Medallion Tier and your 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window will restart.  During this Medallion Upgrade Window, as soon as you reach any of the Gold Medallion Tier Milestones, you will once again receive 100 GoVets Dollars and your account will immediately qualify for a 6-month extension at the Gold Medallion Tier at the end of your current Medallion Upgrade Window.  When your next Medallion Upgrade Window begins, you will continue to earn all discounts and rewards as a Gold Medallion Tier member, and once-again, if you’re able to reach any of the Gold Medallion Tier Milestones level during this 6-month Upgrade Window, you will receive another 100 GoVets Dollars.  During the same Medallion Upgrade Window, if you’re able to reach the Platinum Medallion Tier, you will receive 250 GoVets Dollars and your Medallion Upgrade Window will immediately begin at the Platinum Tier.  However, if you’re not able to reach the Platinum Medallion Tier Milestones during your Medallion Upgrade Window, your account will be downgraded one (1) Medallion Tier (in this case, the Gold Medallion Tier) for the next 6 months and you will once again have an opportunity to receive another Gold Medallion Upgrade Gift of 100 GoVets Dollars if you reach any of the required Gold Tier Milestones.

What is the GoVets Giving Initiative? 

AnswerOne of our most exciting updates in years is the launch of The GoVets Giving Initiative - a true game-changer when it comes to enabling our customers and partners to show their support for the Veteran community.  GoVets Giving is an extension of GoVets.com and designed with the same concept behind the success of GoVets: Eliminate Friction in Buying, Donating & Supporting!   In essence, GoVets Giving is a frictionless & socially-responsible crowdfunding source for qualified Veteran Nonprofits! 

The GoVets Giving Initiative, coupled with the new GoVets Medallion Program, will reward our customers and their chosen Non-Profits with virtually unlimited GoVets Cash Rewards, and ultimately allow anyone to participate in helping to support our growing Non-Profit Veteran Community.

  • Non-Profit Network Effect - Any Member of a Non-Profit or a Supporter of a Non-Profit, can refer hundreds or thousands of individuals, and their purchases, or purchases made by downstream referrals will result in Contributions Made to the original Non-Profit. 
  • The Power of Numbers – GoVets Giving and GoVets Medallion is driven by the power of your network.  As referrals and purchases increase, the percentage of Contributions made for every additional purchase on GoVets also increases for your chosen Non-Profit. 
  • Eliminate Fraudulent Donations - Rest assured that GoVets Giving Contributions made to Non-Profits will not be abused because they must go towards purchases on GoVets that benefit the Non-Profit’s Operations.

What is the difference between the Medallion Program and the GoVets Giving Initiative? 

Answer. The primary purpose of the GoVets Giving Initiative is to create a frictionless crowdfunding model to direct contributions to qualified Veteran Nonprofit beneficiaries.  The GoVets Medallion Program is GoVets’ customer loyalty and affiliate program that not only incentivizes customer loyalty, recurring sales, community building and social awareness, but amplifies the philanthropic mission of GoVets Giving - GoVets Giving contributions to Veteran Nonprofit causes are amplified in the following ways:

  • Medallion Tiers: Each time a GoVets Member’s Medallion Tier is upgraded, GoVets’ contributions to their beneficiary increases and the contributed GoVets Cash Rewards have an extended expiration for both the GoVets Member and the beneficiary.
  • Giving Community Expansion: The Giving Community is a part of the Medallion program that is specifically designed for the GoVets Giving Initiative. While GoVets Members are incentivized to become GoVets Embassadors so they can grow their Giving Community via direct referrals (descendant generations), they are further incentivized to encourage their referrals to equally become GoVets Embassadors – The main reason is that purchases made by up to 3 descendent generations away from any GoVets Embassador qualify for GoVets Giving beneficiary contributions.
  • Veteran Nonprofit Causes as GoVets Embassadors: GoVets encourages all Veteran Nonprofit to join GoVets and become GoVets Embassadors. By doing so, you get the ultimate benefit of claiming your own profile as a Beneficiary while benefiting from all of the Cash Rewards incentives within the Medallion Program.
  • Flexible Medallion Upgrade Paths: GoVets Members now have several ways to upgrade their Medallion Tier and take advantage of all discounts and rewards within all of the Tiers.
    • PATH 1: Medallion Revenue Track:
      • Revenue Thresholds for purchases made by the GoVets Member.
      • Great for Government Buyers or Enterprises with larger projects throughout the year.
    • PATH 2: Medallion Order Volume Track:
      • Order Volume Thresholds for purchases made by the GoVets Member.
      • Great for any business or individual with recurring operating business requirements throughout the year or businesses looking to take advantage of GoVets 3+ million products on a recurring basis throughout the year.
    • PATH 3: Medallion Giving Community Revenue Track:
      • Revenue Thresholds for purchases made in the Giving Community
      • Great for businesses or individuals with a large network of members, friends, social media followers, etc. These GoVets Members take advantage of these personal / business networks to expand their Giving Community, and purchases made within this community directly impacts the Embassador’s Medallion Tier.
    • PATH 4:  Medallion Giving Community Order Volume Track:
      • Order Volume Thresholds for purchases made in the Giving Community.
      • Great for businesses or individuals with a large network of members, friends, social media followers, etc. These GoVets Members take advantage of these personal / business networks to expand their Giving Community, and purchases made within this community directly impacts the Embassador’s Medallion Tier.

What is a Giving Community? 

Answer. GoVets Members, including customers registered on GoVets.com (with or without purchases) AND Veteran Nonprofit causes accepted into The GoVets Giving Initiative will benefit by growing their Giving Community – A Giving Community includes ALL GoVets Members, their referrals and subsequent (downstream) referrals of GoVets Members.  A Giving Community is a foundational component of GoVets Giving and incentivizes ANY GoVets Member - including Beneficiaries listed on the GoVets Giving Directory - to expand their network, leading to significant GoVets Contributions for BOTH Members and their chosen Nonprofit cause (i.e. Beneficiary).  Veteran Nonprofit causes can further accelerate their own GoVets Contributions by simply directing operating purchases to GoVets.

Giving Communities are a Crowdfunding Source for Veteran Nonprofits

Veteran Nonprofit organizations are the True Heroes of the GoVets Giving Initiative.  While GoVets Members receive referral Cash Rewards for all Generation 1 referral purchases, Veteran Nonprofit Beneficiaries receive GoVets Cash Reward Donations for ALL purchases made by anyone up to 3 Generations away in their Giving Community.  The true power behind GoVets Giving is that Veteran Nonprofits Organizations can be a beneficiary on GoVets Giving, but they can also become members of the GoVets Medallion Program, start their own Giving Community and ultimately be the Beneficiary associated with their Giving Community! 

Here's how Giving Community Generations Work:  

Generation G1 Giving Community - Direct Referrals

   Generation 1    (G1):

  • Your Direct Referrals.
  • Anyone that clicks on your "Copy & Share" Button and Joins GoVets!
Generation G2 Giving Community - Referrals of G1 Referrals

   Generation 2    (G2):

  • Referrals of Generation 1 Referrals.
  • Anyone that clicks on the "Copy & Share" Button of your Generation 1 Referrals and Joins GoVets!
Generation G3 Giving Community - Referrals of G2 Referrals

   Generation 3    (G3):

  • Referrals from Generation 2 Referrals
  • Anyone that clicks on the "Copy & Share" Button of your Generation 2 Referrals and Joins GoVets!

The following image provides a visual representation of generations and shows the network effects of growing your Giving community.   In this example, by simply having 5 direct referral (G1), this person has grown her Giving Community to include 15 total individuals across G1, G2 and G3.    When anyone in her Giving Community makes a purchase, her Beneficiary (i.e. her designated Veteran Nonprofit cause) will receive a donation from GoVets.   All of those orders in her Giving community will also count towards her Medallion Tier Upgrade and each times she upgrades her Medallion Tier, her Beneficiary will receive high donations from GoVets for each purchase, she will receive high discounts for future purchases on GoVets if that is one of her preferences and she will also ean all of the benefits, rewards and gifts that any other GoVets Medallion Member earns with each upgrade.  

 

GoVets Giving Community Overview

How can I maximize the benefits of the GoVets Medallion Program? 

Answer. The GoVets Medallion program has been created to complement our GoVets Giving initiative while incentivizing our customers to be loyal shoppers, spread the word about GoVets, and/or simply spreading the word about their chosen beneficiary.  

Ultimately, it depends on your circumstances... 

Government or Enterprise Buyers with Recurring Spending Requirements or Annual Budget Cycle Requirements

Annual Budget Constraints: 

Take Advantage of the Medallion Revenue Track by maximizing your purchases on GoVets on a regular basis to maintain your elite Medallion Tier throughout the year.   If your budget only allows you to make large purchases during specific times throughout your the year, your upgraded Medallion Status will not be reset if you cannot make recurring purchases with us!   Instead, once you are upgraded to a top tier status during a 6-month upgrade window, your status will remain the same during the following upgrade window, and even if you only make large purchases during a small window during the year (e.g End of Government Year Fiscal Cycle), you can maintain this upgraded medallion status, including all the upgraded donations, rewards and discounts that come with it!    

Recurring Purchases from Multiple Supply Sources

Strive to attain & maintain the highest Medallion Tier possible within the next 6 months to get the best possible Medallion discount and additional GoVets Cash Rewards Earned towards future purchases on GoVets.   Rather that purchasing items from multiple supply sources, GoVets rewards you with loyalty rewards in the form of GoVets Cash, discounts, gifts, donations, Upgraded VIP Medallion Customer support and more.   This means that your continued loyalty with GoVets simply means that you will qualify for better and better discounts over time.  Keep coming back to us and you'll simply get to maintain all of those benefits! 

Recurring Purchases from Multiple Supply Sources

Grow your Giving Community and/or Gift your earned Medallion Membership Tier to a Co-Worker or Peer that can achieve similar success on GoVets.  That way, you can obtain additional "passive" Referral Cash Rewards, allow their purchase revenue and/or order volume to count towards your next Medallion Tier and help ensure you can maintain the highest Medallion Tier throughout the year. Rewards can be used in a way that is consistent with your organization's rules and policies.

Support Veterans! Make sure you've chosen your favorite GoVets Giving Beneficiary as they will receive GoVets Cash Rewards for every purchase made within all 3 Generations of your Giving Community

Veteran Nonprofit Organizations | Influencers | Bloggers & Affiliates 

Designed with Social Community Building In Mind

We're proud to say that the GoVets Medallion Program and the GoVets Giving Initiative was developed with Social Media, Crowdfunding and Referrals in mind.   One of the key building blocks of the program is called a Giving Community.  GoVets Members can take advantage of the Medallion Giving Community Track by allowing anyone to leverage their social media networks, friends, followers, blog subscribers and more.   As a Blogger, Influencer, Veteran Nonprofit Organization or an individual or organization interested in growing your affiliate-related sales, you can earn GoVets Cash Rewards, Medallion Status Upgrades, Gifts and support your favorite Veteran Nonprofit Beneficiary WITHOUT buying anything on GoVets once you become a GoVets Medallion Member. 

Copy & Share to Grow Your Giving Community

Grow Your Giving Community by selecting the "Copy & Share" Button found anywhere on GoVets and sharing the copied link with your local community, followers, donors, and followers so they can Join GoVets and both you and your favorite Veteran Nonprofit can start earning significant GoVets Cash Rewards for all of their orders for years to come!  Unlike other Referral programs, you don't just earn based on a single purchase made by your referrals, you earn GoVets Cash Rewards from all of their future orders on GoVets for years to come...  So make sure to refer as many people as possible but others do or before they learn about GoVets!

Encourage all your referrals to either Share Your "Copy & Share" link with their Friends and Family members OR have them do the same but growing their GoVets Giving Community by selecting the same "Copy & Share" Button in their account.   Their referrals will also benefit your Veteran Nonprofit Beneficiary & Your GoVets Medallion Tier.  

Giving Communities are a Crowdfunding Source for Veteran Nonprofits

Veteran Nonprofits are the True Heroes of the GoVets Giving Initiative.  While GoVets Members receive referral Cash Rewards for all Generation 1 referral purchases, Veteran Nonprofit Beneficiaries receive GoVets Cash Reward Donations for ALL purchases made by anyone up to 3 Generations away in their Giving Community.  The true power behind GoVets Giving is that Veteran Nonprofits Organizations can be a beneficiary on GoVets Giving, but they can also become members of the GoVets Medallion Program, start their own Giving Community and ultimately be the Beneficiary associated with their Giving Community! 

Here's how Giving Community Generations Work:  

  • Generation 1:
    • Your Direct Referrals.
    • Anyone that clicks on your "Copy & Share" Button and Joins GoVets!
  • Generation 2:
    • Referrals of Generation 1 Referrals.
    • Anyone that clicks on the "Copy & Share" Button of your Generation 1 Referrals and Joins GoVets!
  • Generation 3:
    • Referrals from Generation 2 Referrals
    • Anyone that clicks on the "Copy & Share" Button of your Generation 2 Referrals and Joins GoVets!

 

When do my earned GoVets Cash Rewards expire?  What is the lifetime of my GoVets Cash Rewards?

Answer. Cash Rewards earned by GoVets Members and Beneficiaries must be used before their expiration date - but one of the great benefits of the GoVets Medallion program is that your Cash Rewards have a longer and longer expiration date based on your Medallion Tier.   The following table specifies the lifetime for your GoVets Cash Rewards based on your Medallion Tier.  This lifetime is tied to each individual reward deposited in your account.   The GoVets Giving Initiative and the GoVets Medallion Program are structured to help our Veteran Nonprofit beneficiaries.  Therefore, if you’re a Veteran Nonprofit Beneficiary, we want you to take advantage of all the benefits offered and worry less about the expiration of your GoVets Cash Rewards.  The lifetime for all GoVets Cash Rewards earned by GoVets Giving Beneficiaries is extended by 6 months.  This allows you to accumulate the funds required to make the necessary purchases on GoVets.

What are Medallion “Upgrade Paths”?   What type of customers are better suited for the different Upgrade Paths. 

Answer.  GoVets Members have several “paths” to upgrade their Medallion Tier during any 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window.  We track EVERYTHING for you - GoVets tracks all orders and sales for you and your Giving Community.  You can always verify how many orders or remaining sales are required for the next milestone by logging into your account and clicking on the GoVets Medallion Tab.     

Medallion Upgrade Paths:

  • Upgrade Path 1: GoVets Member Order Milestones

    • Order volume milestones for purchases made by the GoVets Member.
    • Great for any business or individual with recurring operating business requirements throughout the year (e.g. Paper, Office supplies, Cleaning, Janitorial suppliers, Filters, etc) or businesses looking to take advantage of GoVets’ 3+ million products on a recurring basis throughout the year.
  • Upgrade Path 2: GoVets Member Sales Milestones:

    • Sales milestones for purchases made by the GoVets Member.
    • Great for Government Buyers or Enterprises with larger projects throughout the year.
  • Upgrade Path 3: Giving Community Order Milestones:

    • Order volume milestones for purchases made by anyone in the GoVets Members Giving Community.
    • Great for businesses or individuals with a large network of members, friends, social media followers, etc. These GoVets Members, called Embassadors, take advantage of these personal / business networks to expand their Giving Community, and purchases made within this community directly impact the Embassador’s Medallion Tier.
  • Upgrade Path 4: Giving Community Sales Milestones:

    • Sales milestones for purchases made by anyone in the GoVets Member’s Giving Community.
    • Great for businesses or individuals with a large network of members, friends, social media followers, etc. These GoVets Members take advantage of these personal / business networks to expand their Giving Community, and purchases made within this community directly impacts the Embassador’s Medallion Tier.

 

Once I qualify to join the GoVets Medallion Program, does it ever expire?  

Answer.  No.  Once you join, you will always be a Medallion Member.  At the very minimum, you will be a BRONZE Medallion Member based on your activities on GoVets or the activities of your Giving Community.  

 

What are the required Medallion Tier Milestones for each Upgrade Path?  

Answer.  The following chart and detailed table provide the Medallion Tier Milestones that GoVets members must achieve within a 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window.  Members must achieve MEDALLION TIER Milestones for any of the 4 Upgrade Paths in Your 6-Month Upgrade Window

*  Diamond Renewal Milestones are only available for existing Diamond Members.  That is, once you’re a Diamond Medallion Member, you only need 10,000 purchases OR $100K in Revenue with GoVets over a 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window to RETAIN your Diamond Medallion status, but you need 25,000 purchases OR $250K in Revenue if you’re looking to upgrade from Platinum to Diamond.

   Medallion Upgrade Path 3 and Upgrade Path 4 take in consideration Orders (Path 3) and Sales (Path 4) related to anyone in the customer’s Giving Community, including the GoVets Member (i.e. the Embassador of the Giving Community).  Thus, if the Embassador makes 100 Orders during his Medallion Upgrade Window and others in his Giving Community make a total of 400 Orders during the same Medallion Upgrade Window, the GoVets Member will qualify for the Gold Medallion Tier and their Medallion Upgrade Window will renew for 6-months.  

   Orders from the Member Upgrade Path combine with orders from the Community Upgrade Path for Medallion progress. Similarly, Dollars from the Member Upgrade Path are combined with dollars from the Community Upgrade Path.

 

Does GoVets give Cash Rewards to my chosen beneficiary for every purchase? 

Answer. Yes - Make sure you have a chosen beneficiary - Otherwise, we will choose one for you!  Either way, rest assured that every purchase you make on GoVets will earn your beneficiary GoVets Cash Rewards, so they can purchase anything that benefits their Veteran nonprofit organization.  One of the other amazing benefits of GoVets Giving is that all purchases made by all GoVets Members in your Giving Community will qualify for a Contribution made by GoVets and the amount contributed by GoVets increases as your Tier increases or the Tier of the member in your Giving Community increases.  

How much does it cost to join the GoVets Medallion Program?  

Answer.  There is no annual cost or application fee to join the GoVets Medallion Program.  Simply Create your GoVets Account and once you make your first purchase on GoVets, You're In!   You can then access your Medallion account details and we will give you regular updates about your GoVets Medallion Tier.  

How can I find out what I need to attain the next Medallion Tier Milestone?  

Answer.  Please sign-in to your GoVets Member Account, navigate to your Account profile and select the “Medallion Info” Tab. 

How can I find out details about my Giving Community?  

Answer.  Please sign-in to your GoVets Member Account, navigate to your Account profile and select the “Giving Info” Tab.  You will find details such as your Embassador, your Beneficiary, Amounts given to your beneficiaries, your Giving Community details by generation, and more.

As a New Member of GoVets, what is the best way to learn about the Medallion Program and the GoVets Giving Initiative?  

Answer. It's important to understand the different Tiers within the GoVets Medallion program and the different medallion upgrade tracks so you can choose an optimal way to earn the largest possible discount on GoVets, accumulate the most GoVets Cash Rewards for your account along with your Beneficiaries and your Giving Community, and for yourself t rewards, fast way to upgrade your Medallion Tier and best way to help your favorite GoVets Giving Beneficiary.  

What is a Medallion Upgrade Window?  When does a Medallion Upgrade Window begin and end?

Answer.  Once a customer attains a given Medallion Tier, they are guaranteed to maintain all benefits for this Tier for at least six (6) months and can also upgrade their Tier during this 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window.  During the Medallion Upgrade Window, if customers attain the required Medallion milestone(s) for their Tier they will benefit from another 6-month Medallion Upgrade Window when the current Upgrade Window expires.  Unlike other Loyalty Programs, GoVets Members will NOT completely lose their upgraded status if they are unable to attain the required Medallion Milestone(s).  Instead, once the Medallion Upgrade Window expires, their Medallion Status will decrease by only one (1) Tier and their Medallion Upgrade Window will renew for another 6-month period, giving them yet another opportunity to attain the desired Tier. 

Can I donate my GoVets Cash Rewards? 

Answer. Yes – If you would like to give any or all of your GoVets Cash Rewards earned before they expire, you can reach out to our support team at GoVets.com/Help and select Donate My Cash Rewards option.  In addition to helping your Veteran Nonprofit beneficiary through everyday purchases, this is another great way to make a significant impact to your favorite Veteran Nonprofit cause. 

 

How much GoVets Cash Rewards does GoVets contribute to beneficiaries?

Answer. The amount of GoVets Cash Rewards that give to your beneficiary for purchases made in your Giving Community depends on the Generation (Gen1, Gen2, Gen3) linked to the given order.   For example, a Generation 1 order will earn your beneficiary more GoVets Cash Rewards vs Generation 2 (Gen2) or Generation 3 (Gen 3).    Similarly, your Medallion Tier will also determine the amount along with the expiration of the GoVets Cash Rewards earned by your Beneficiary.  As an example, if a Platinum Tier GoVets Member is in Generation 2 of  your Giving Community and makes a purchase for $1000, your Beneficiary would earn $7.50 (i.e. 0.75% x $1000, according to the following table) with a Lifetime of 290 days.

I recently made a Guest Order before signing up for the Medallion Program.  Can this Guest Order be applied to my GoVets Medallion Status? 

Answer.  Yes – we highly recommend signing up for a GoVets Member account before your order ships so your Medallion benefits can be applied to your account.  If you sign-up before your order ships, your order will automatically be tied to your Medallion Account.  If your order ships out or if you have concerns, reach out to our support team and, if your order qualifies, we can make necessary adjustments to your account. 

 

If my Medallion status is upgraded for attaining a given Milestone, will it be downgraded if any of the milestone-related orders were cancelled? 

Answer. No. You get your full six months. We want you to shop on GoVets, and we believe that you have the best interests of the GoVets community at heart. In this spirit of cooperation and loyalty, we do not remove your medallion credit once it has been earned. 

 

Do GoVets Cash Rewards earned by my order or my referral's order get canceled if any of these Purchases are canceled/refunded? 

Answer.  No. Cash Rewards are earned once your order ships to your address. If your order is subsequently canceled for any reason, we do not cancel the rewards you earned. We reserve the right to cancel rewards on a case-by-case basis (e.g., in instances of abuse), but in most cases we will not cancel rewards because we want to show our appreciation to our loyal customers.

 

Does the Medallion Order or Revenue credit applied towards my next Medallion Tier get cancelled if I cancel an order or someone in my Giving Community cancels their order? 

Answer.  No.  GoVets will not remove these "Giving Community" Credits even if those orders are cancelled in the future.

 

Do GoVets Cash Rewards have any Cash Value? 

Answer.  No.  You cannot convert your GoVets Dollars in your account to Cash.  You must use your GoVets Dollars before they expire according to your Medallion Tier.

 

Do GoVets Cash Rewards awarded to my Beneficiary get cancelled or reversed if I have to cancel the original order that generated those rewards? 

Answer.  No.  GoVets Giving Contributions made on behalf of GoVets will not be cancelled if your order was shipped but then needs to be returned, exchanged and/or closed out.  However, if the order is cancelled prior to being shipped, Cash Rewards will not be awarded.

 

What is a GoVets Giving Embassador? 

Answer.  As a GoVets Member, you can become a GoVets Giving Embassador by expanding your GoVets Giving Community.  You expand your community by Sharing your Account-specific GoVets URLs with your Community.   This is done by first logging into your GoVets Account, navigating to the GoVets home page, any product page, or even your GoVets Giving Beneficiary's page and clicking on the Share ICON.  This Sharing Icon will give you a special URL that you can share with your friends, family or anyone that you would like to include within your GoVets Giving Community.  As the GoVets Embassador of your Giving Community, you get to review and track how much of an impact you're making over time.  That is, you can view how many GoVets Members Sign-up and the GoVets Cash Rewards generated for ALL Beneficiaries within all 4 Generations of your Giving Community.  Each generation in your community includes GoVets Members that were recruited by existing GoVets Community Members from a previous generation.  As the Embassador (Generation 0) of your Giving Community, your direct referrals are considered to be Generation 1, their direct referrals are Generation 2, and subsequent referrals are Generation 3.   The GoVets Giving Tab within your Account profile specifies all these details and the overall impact that you're making!   If you were part of someone else's Giving Community, their information will be provided within the GoVets Giving Tab as Your Embassador.  

GoVets Members may or may not have a GoVets Embassador based on how they signed up for GoVets.  

 

When did the GoVets Medallion and GoVets Giving Program begin? 

Answer. The GoVets Medallion Program was launched in late October, 2022.  The program began assessing customer orders as of October 18th, 2022 for GoVets Medallion qualifications and upgrades.   Any orders made prior to this date do not qualify for the Medallion program.

 

When do GoVets Cash Rewards become available after I place an order with GoVets?  

Answer. GoVets Cash Rewards will be available in your GoVets Cash balance as soon as your order is shipped.  The same idea applies to GoVets Cash Rewards that GoVets contributes to your Beneficiary or any Referral Bonus Cash that is deposited into your Embassador’s GoVets Cash Rewards account.

GoVets Cash Rewards will be deducted from your balance as well as your Embassador’s Cash Rewards balance for returned or cancelled orders.  Cash Rewards will NEVER be deducted from your Beneficiary’s account after your order ships – even if the order must be returned, cancelled, and/or refunded. 

 

How does GoVets detect and deal with possible fraudulent activity related to the GoVets Medallion Program and the GoVets Giving Initiative?

Answer. We reserve the right to remove all Cash Rewards from your account or your beneficiary’s account if we detect any type of fraudulent activity / behavior.

 

What are prohibited activities related to the GoVets Medallion Program and the GoVets Giving Initiative?

Answer. The following prohibited activities or anything related may result in being removed from the GoVets Medallion program, the GoVets Giving program, and blacklisted from any further activity on GoVets:

  • Creating multiple fake or temporary accounts with the intent to defraud GoVets, our users, staff or community about your purchases, metrics, Giving Community.
  • Using false claims, false advertisements, false promises and/or false coupon codes about GoVets, GoVets Medallion, GoVets Giving, our Products, Staff or capabilities with the primary intent of increasing referrals within your Giving Community.

Note:  We reserve the right to reduce your level and/or remove rewards based on account activity.

 

When do I stop receiving GoVets Cash Rewards for orders made by any of my referrals?  

Answer. You will receive referral/affiliate GoVets Cash Rewards for all referrals that are signed-up from your shared referral URL.   GoVets will allow all customers to collect Cash Rewards for Referral Purchases for at least 1 year.  We will re-evaluate this model in late 2023 to determine if she should expand it or limit the referral GoVets Cash Bonus timeline.

 

Who qualifies to be Embassadors for the GoVets Medallion Program?

Answer. Anyone that signs up for a GoVets Member account can become an Embassador.

 

How do my Medallion Tier discounts show up in my shopping cart?

Answer.  Your Medallion Discount should automatically appear in your shopping cart once you login to your account.  If you see the code "Pre-Medallion" in your shopping cart, you have either not logged in or your account does not yet qualify for a Medallion Discount.   As a Medallion Member, you also have the ability to use several Medallion Coupon codes available to your EACH quarter and as you move up Medallion Tiers, you get new Coupon Codes with higher discounts and you get to use coupon codes from the lower Tiers!   Remember, the only way to use a Medallion Coupon Code is to first LOGIN so we can make sure that your account is eligible.

How can I add my favorite Veteran Nonprofit Cause on GoVets Giving? 

Answer. We want to help Veterans. To that end, our goal is to have as many verified Veteran Nonprofit causes as possible on GoVets Giving.  If you’re a fervent supporter of a Veteran Nonprofit cause that you know can benefit from our exciting initiative, you can submit a Request to add them to GoVets Giving.  Whenever possible, we ask that you provide a point of contact from your favorite Veteran Nonprofit cause or have your cause sign-up DIRECTLY for a GoVets Membership account so they can quickly claim their Veteran Nonprofit profile on GoVets Giving and start reaping the rewards from being a beneficiary. 

 

Can I change my GoVets Giving Beneficiary? 

Answer.  Yes – you can change you GoVets Giving beneficiary at any time by logging into your account on GoVets, going to the GoVets Giving Tab in your account profile and selecting the new beneficiary you would like to associate with your account.  Alternatively, you can navigate to Giving.GoVets.com, research hundreds of Veteran Nonprofit causes and on the beneficiary’s profile page, click on “Make My Beneficiary” button.  This will redirect you to your account in GoVets and pre-select this beneficiary for your account.  Click “Save” and GoVets contributions will be made to your new beneficiary going forward.  The new beneficiary will also be the default beneficiary associated with any new members that you refer to GoVets.

  

How can I grow my Referrals and Giving Community? 

Answer.   Once you become a GoVets Member, please go to any Page that contains the “Copy & Share” Button, click on it and share it with your Friends, Family, Social Networks, relevant blogs, websites, and more.  As long as someone is not already a GoVets Member, when they click on ANY of the “Copy & Share” URLs you have posted or shared online, they will be part of your Giving Community and their purchases or their own Giving Community can have a direct impact on your Medallion Rewards, Medallion Status, and most importantly the impact you make to your GoVets Giving Beneficiary.  

 

Can I change the person who referred me in my GoVets Account?

Answer.   No.  When someone joins GoVets, the Embassador that refers them to their Giving Community is associated with their account until further notice.  It would not be fair to the original Embassaor who referred you as a GoVets customer. 

 

How are the GoVets Giving and Medallion Programs considered to be Crowdfunding initiatives for Veteran Nonprofit organizations? 

Answer. According to Investopedia.com, Crowdfunding uses small amounts of capital from a large number of individuals to finance a business and makes use of the easy accessibility of broad networks of people through social media and crowdfunding websites to bring investors and entrepreneurs together so they can expand the pool of investors beyond the traditional means.  Similarly, according to Donorbox.org, nonprofit crowdfunding is a form of fundraising to encourage public investment in an organization and can be used to specific programs within the organization or a generation donation to the cause. 

GoVets Giving’s Crowdfunding approach embraces both of these popular definitions by taking advantage of Giving Communities, and our use of the GoVets Medallion Program to encourage public involvement with Nonprofit causes of interest by shopping on GoVets or encouraging their Giving Community members to shop on GoVets with the ultimate goal of contributing proceeds to their favorite Veteran Nonprofit beneficiary(ies) found on GoVets Giving!

 

Can my Medallion Discounts be applied with any other discounts or promotions offered by GoVets? 

Answer. In most cases, GoVets Medallion Members can take advantage of multiple discounts and offers unless otherwise stated in the terms and conditions for those other discounts.  If you make a purchase on GoVets but decide to use a coupon code that offers a better discount than your current Medallion Tier discount, your order will still qualify towards your next Medallion Tier and you will still earn GoVets Cash Rewards related to that order.  In most cases, we may offer alternative (or better) discounts than your existing Medallion Tier discount and those discounts often do not stack within your cart.
