I was just about to post about this too. I was wondering why the points price went sky high outta noooowhere. But I can understand it. I mean, I bet a bunch of people only do the missions to get free stuff, which is pretty jacked up.
Since our site was revamped, we’ve seen a lot more people taking action for animals, and in order to manage the costs, we’ve had to increase the point value on some items in the Street Team store. But no worries! We’re constantly adding new missions to the “Take Action” page so you’ll be able to rack up those points in no time!
@SkiVegChick-Nope, your points won’t be taken away.
Thanks so much for being on the peta2 Street Team and helping animals!
peta2’s Street Team is a unique program and each year we spend thousands of dollars purchasing and shipping Street Team goods for free to Street Teamers all around the world. Since we launched our new website this year, we’ve seen a huge increase in people helping animals and completing missions, and in order to manage costs, we’ve had to increase the point value on some items in the store. Not all items were changed, some stayed the same and some were even lowered—and this change will help us create and ship newer Street Team goods in the future.
Please remember that peta2 has to pay for each piece of merchandise we send and then also pay for shipping—which adds up. We add new missions every week so that Street Teamers can earn points, so if you need a few more to order your fave good, please check out peta2.com/Actions to get earning! Also keep in mind that the real award should be knowing you spoke up for those who need it the most.
Thanks so much!
