How can I earn and maintain a higher tier status?

As a member, your tier status is valid for a period of 12 months and will depend on the Upoints earned in the last 12 months. Tier Upoints will be recalculated at the end of 12 months and you will be moved to a tier that reflects your current Tier Upoints balance. It is possible to downgrade more than one level. However, if the total number of Upoints earned in the last 12 months meets the required limit for any of the higher tier levels, your membership will be instantly upgraded.
