Safari Club International (SCI) has launched a new Membership Rewards Program that offers new and referring members everything from caps to Convention passes, a rifle scope, $100 gift cards, firearms and more. The program even rewards members for renewing their memberships – rewards all the way around!
The new program is a points-based rewards system that allows members to accumulate points from their efforts and loyalty, and that gives them a wide range of rewards from which to choose. The initial selection of rewards includes $50 and $100 gift cards for Cabela’s/Bass Pro, Dick’s Sporting, Amazon and Visa. There are also Triple Loc shooter vests, Sitka vests, a Remington knife, an SCI life membership, a Zeiss rifle scope, two Convention passes, Montana American W Vortex Optics, a Fausti Progress GLX 20 gauge, a Tikka T3 Lite 6.5 Creedmoor, a Browning A Bolt 300WM, a Browning X Bolt 300WM, and a Montana X-treme 300 WM. More rewards will be added in the near future.
Here’s how the program works:
Members can navigate to the Refer a Friend page after logging into their account. Here they are issued a recruitment link that they can share with friends by email, text, social media or on their websites. For every new member who joins, the referring member receives a package of points they can redeem for rewards. For a new one-year membership, they get 100 points; 300 for a three-year membership and 1,000 for a life membership. That’s for each new member they recruit. The new members also receive the same points for joining, as do all renewing members.
New members are hunters who are joining SCI for the first time or whose membership has lapsed for more than 12 months. Points are issued within 48 hours of completing a membership purchase. The member can then redeem the points in the SCI Rewards Store, which is also accessible on the SCI website under Membership Resources after logging in. They can also check on the number of points they have accumulated.
“The most effective membership recruitment tool we have is our own members,” says Mike Rogers, Executive Vice President of Member Services at SCI. “We wanted to create a program that would reward them for their continuing loyalty, encourage them to recruit new members, and reward new members all at the same time.”
The new program is easy to use, allowing members to share their referral code directly with a friend by email and text, or to create their own social media campaign with as much creativity and effort as they want. They can accumulate points for as long as necessary to redeem the rewards they most desire. The more they put into the program, the more they can get out of it. A system for SCI chapters to accrue reward points will be introduced in January 2022.
