You earn Karma points by fulfilling rides that other Sociali members have requested, as well as by completing some of the initial setup tasks, such as Adding family members, Importing your contacts to Connect with people you know and more (see Menu -> Karma Points for a complete list). KPs that you earn by fulfilling rides can be redeemed for real gift cards for merchants such as Walmart, Amazon, Starbucks, Dunkin Donuts and other major retailers (“conversion offer”). KPs have to be redeemed in increments of $25. Currently, 100 KPs equals $1 (aka ‘KP conversion rate’). KPs that you earn by completing setup tasks are not redeemable for gift cards. Only KPs earned by fulfilling rides are redeemable for gift cards, but all KPs can be redeemed for requesting rides. To redeem your earned KPs for gift cards simply email KPRedemption@sociali.US from your registered account email, with the subject ‘Redeem KPs’, and mention how many KPs (in increments of 2500 KPs = $25) you would like to convert to gift cards, your name and postal address, and a merchant from the list above. The gift card will be mailed to your address. Gift cards will be issued 2-4 weeks after your emailed request. Sociali reserves the right to issue or deny the gift cards. Gift cards will be issued for KPs earned by fulfilling real rides for genuine Sociali members, which involves transporting one or more passengers in a vehicle over a reasonable distance (‘ride activity’). Sociali may cross check the ride details for which KPs have been awarded, with the passenger(s) of those rides, to verify ride activity. Fraudulent ride activity or inflated ride activity or suspicious ride activity, or a misuse of the Sociali app or platform, or any activity not in accordance with the Terms & Conditions of Sociali could lead to denial of your conversion request, removal of KPs related to such inappropriate activity and even the suspension/deletion of your account. Sociali reserves the right to change or cancel this ‘KP to gift cards redemption’ option at any time without notice to anyone. For KP related questions, email info@sociali.US with the subject ‘KP Question’. This conversion offer is open while supplies last, and limited to a maximum of $50 per person per month. The conversion offer is only available for accounts based in the USA at this time, for rides offered and fulfilled in the USA only.
