What are points?

Points are the system of reward on Investor Voice. Everything you do will be rewarded with points.

What do points offer me?

As they say, “points mean prizes”. Every 100 points you accumulate allows you to purchase an entry into one of our monthly prize draws.

Each prize draw gives you the chance to win a wide range of different prizes including gift experiences, weekend breaks and tickets to major events.

You can see the next two month’s upcoming prizes by heading over to the Prizes page and they will also be listed in the newsletter.

How do I earn points?

The main source of earning points is through completing activities. Each time you complete an activity, you will be rewarded with 50 points. There are only 50 points available per activity, regardless of the amount of entries you post. These points are awarded instantly once you submit your entry. A quick poll offers 25 points. These points will be awarded when the poll closes. Please note there are no incentives for forum posts except for on special occasions.

In addition to the standard points for completing an activity, there are also additional points to be won in some activities for the entries that are placed first, second or third. These rankings are determined by the highest average star rating an entry receives, as rated by all the users. They are rewarded in the following way:
  • First place – 150 points
  • Second place – 100 points
  • Third place – 50 points
If there is a tie, both users will be rewarded with the relevant place points.

From time to time there will also be bonus points given to members who the moderating team feel have made an outstanding contribution to the community* – be it helping other members or simply being active within the forum (*moderator discretion is final).

During times of special occasions, double points may be offered on activities. Any event such as this will always be made clear in advance through the newsletter and in the description of the activity.


When is the monthly prize draw and how do I enter it?

The closing day to enter the prize draw will be the last working day (Monday-Friday) of each month. The draw will then take place a few days following this close, with the winner informed shortly after.

You are free to enter any prize draw you wish, providing you have enough points to buy an entry. If you wish to save points for more entries into an upcoming draw, you are free to do so. There is no limit on the amount of entries you can have per prize draw.

To enter a prize draw, simply head over to the Prizes page and click the check box of the prize draw you wish to enter. Then scroll down and hit redeem. 100 points will be deducted from your balance.

Every winner will be announced in the Investor Voice Newsletter and on Investor Voice
