Leaderboard

What are XP/Leaderboard Credits? Both the XP Ranks and Badges are awarded based on your interactions with the program and are for bragging rights only. These points cannot be redeemed for prizes and have no bearing on your total points balance. XP stands for 'Experience Points', and are collected over time for the amount of participation one has with the system. So, the more you interact with the site the more XP you will earn.

Why did I not get XP for that Trivia? There are 3 reasons why you may not get credit.

  1. There is a cap on the amount of XP credit that you can receive at one time. You can enter Survey, Listen & Win, and Trivia instances at a maximum rate of 1 question per 60 seconds. Any activity which exceeds this cap will not be credited with XP, or count towards your standing on the leaderboards found at the right-hand side of the program. Unfortunately, there is currently no way for us to manually credit XP in cases where your activity pace exceeds this cap. To ensure that you receive credit for all instances that you interact with, it's best to wait 2 minutes between instance interactions.
     
  2. The "Discovery Mon-Fri Trivia FUN" and "Healthcare Points Zone!" generally contain a mix of instances which credit XP, and those which do not. You can tell whether an instance will be crediting XP by the type of participation required. If you read an article, then return to the rewards page to enter an answer, you will receive both Traditional Points and XP. For the type of quizzes where you do NOT need to enter an answer on the rewards page after taking them, you will receive points only. No XP will be credited for this second content type.
     
  3. You may not have Cookies enabled on all sites. Please verify that you are accepting all 3rd party cookies.

Are Leaderboard/XP points redeemable? Bear in mind that XP is completely different than Traditional Points. XP credit cannot be redeemed for any prizing opportunities at this time, and is only a visual representation of your participation in the program. Traditional Points are what you use for prizing, and they are earned regardless of the type of points earning instance you interact with.
