Whether you’re a new Member or been with us for a while we thought we’d put together a handy guide to help you make the most of your membership. You can use online discounts, and access great activities, rewards and special opportunities.
With Young Scot Membership you’ll be able to earn rewards points by completing activities online or in your community. Once you’ve built up your points, you’ll be able to exchange them for awesome rewards.
Complete activities to build up your points total. Find activities by clicking on ‘Rewards’ and select ‘activities’ in the filter. There are quizzes, surveys, articles to read and more. At the end of the activity you’ll get a points code to redeem to collect your points.
To complete an activity online, you’ll need to be signed in. Find an activity you want to complete and click the pink ‘Get Now’ button under ‘Ready to Get Started?’ to sign in and complete the activity. If you’re already signed in, you’ll be able to complete the activity straight away.
