There are three (3) levels within the Program which are determined by the number of points that you accumulate within the January through December calendar year (via spend and non-spend qualifying activities) in your account. By creating an account, you will be automatically enrolled in the Program at the Silver Status level. Earn at least 1,500 points in order to automatically proceed to the Gold Member level. If you earn at least 5,000 points you will then automatically qualify for the Platinum Edition level.
Once you reach a specific tier within the Program, you may receive exclusive benefits that are only available to members at that Member Level. The points accrued within the January through December calendar year will determine the measure of your tier within the program for the following calendar year. Once points accumulated meet or exceed the membership level point requirements, you will automatically qualify and be entered into that membership level regardless of your "redeemable points balance."
