How can I maximise my Bonus Points?
|Question||How can I maximise my Bonus Points?|
|Answer||Donations are added together so it's wise to maximise your bonus points by following the tips below.
There are break-points for donations totalling up to €25.00 that are particularly worth taking a look at.
For example, you donate €6.00 and receive 20 bonus points. If you then donate another €3.00 (totalling €9.00), you will receive no further bonus points as your total still falls within the first break-point (€5.00-€9.99)
If, on the other hand, your next donation was €4.00 not €3.00, you would have reached the second break-point (€10.00 - €14.99) so that your bonus points would total 50 (ie. 30 more points).
Break-points, these apply to all of your donations added together:
It looks complicated but the bottom line is this, for donations of less than €25.00, donate in €5.00 steps and if you've already donated an amount in between these ranges, make it up to the next break-point.
Another thing that seems to be complicating matters is that some Paypal servers give the donor the choice of donating in Euros or their local currency. If you do your own calculations and donate in say USD, you can bet that Paypal will use a fractionally different currency multiplier and your donation amount might fall short of a break-point by a few coins.
