    Frequently Asked Questions

    Will I lose my spot on the leaderboard or my badges if I purchase an item from the store?

    No, you will not lose your spot on the leaderboard nor your badges.  However, the store will deduct these points from your available balance.  For example, if you have 5,000 points and you purchase a laptop sleeve for 2,000 points, your point value will reflect 3,000 but your spot on the leaderboard will not change.  In other words, the leaderboard runs off of your lifetime balance and all of your earned badges will stay in your profile.

    Is the shipping cost covered?

    Yes. There will be no cost to you.

    What countries do you ship to?

    United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Germany are currently the only countries we ship to.

    My points were deducted, but I don't live in any of the eligible countries for shipping. How can I get my points back?

    Please email for assistance.

    How soon will I receive my item?

    After your order has been processed and shipped, you should receive your item within 7-10 business days. If an item is on backorder, you may not be notified automatically. You will receive your item, but it may take up to 30 days to restock the item.
