Who qualifies? 2-Star Membership & Autoship required.
Basic Idea: One can consider it as a "congratulatory" reward given when a GCooper attains a certain rank. This rank is achieved by balancing the total accumulated BV for each leg within the last 4 weeks. The reward is given out only once.
How do I attain the Rank of Bronze ~ Sapphire?
Ranks from Bronze to Sapphire require total accumulation BV within the last 4 weeks for each leg with the week ending on a Tuesday.
How do I attain the rank of Ruby ~ Diamond?
In addition to the total accumulation of BV within the last 4 weeks, ranks from Ruby to Diamond require certain ranks on both legs for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd generation sponsors.
For example, to get the rank of Ruby:
you must have a total of 24,000 BV accumulated within the last 4 weeks on both legs
there must be a silver rank in each of your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Generation Sponsors on both legs.
If Team Bonus is the cake and Matching Bonus is the Icing on the cake, Promotion Bonus is the cherry on top.
Once you attain a rank it is permanent, there is no extra effort needed to maintain the rank.
Notice that ranks higher than Diamond do not receive any cash bonus. Contrary to popular belief that higher ranks continue to get larger prizes.
