If BzzAgent had a drummer-in-residence, I’d cue a drum roll. Because what we are about to share deserves some dramatic build-up. After months of discussion and planning – not to mention a busload of patience on your part – we are getting ready pull back the curtains and reveal the new rewards program. In fact, it all starts now.
Here’s how it’ll all go down. We’ll introduce our new programs (yes, plural!) in three phases:
- The Countdown:
Over the next few weeks you’re going to start seeing some changes on BzzAgent.com as we get the system ready for these big improvements. The changes may look subtle at first – some messages here, a little hint there – but they all are part of the larger picture, so pay attention! We know you’ll likely have more than a few questions along the way. So, each week on the BeeLog we will respond to at least one Agent question – either posted in the comments thread, posed on an outside site like bzzz.heavenforum.com, or submitted us by other means (email, IM, carrier pigeon). Go ahead and ask away!
Then, in mid-May, the next phase will begin, where we say goodbye to the old system and hello to the new one. This is when you’ll be able to finally use all of the points you’ve gained thus far. Whether you have a ton of points built up or just a hard-earned few, you’ll have the opportunity to turn those points into great stuff.
- The New World:
Shortly thereafter, everything will start anew. This “new world” will have two components: a way to earn status (a friendly and simple evolution of the “Tiering” system) and a better way to earn stuff (a better rewards system!). Don’t worry, all of the hard work you’ve put into your status thus far will remain intact.
More to come very shortly, but consider this the beginning of the official countdown. Here we go!
