Once you're all signed up with BetterPoints, you'll start to see rewards coming in when you travel around campus. All you need to do is choose either an active or sustainable mode of transport and you're on your way.

  • Refer a friend and be in with a chance winning 1,000 BetterPoints each week. Five winners will be picked every Monday

As part of the Choose Your Way Warwick programme we want to ensure that even in the winter months and in the run up to Christmas we encourage as much participation in active and sustainable as possible. That’s why with the BetterPoints app you can earn and win even more between now and the end of the year.

Early-bird prizes - We want as many people as possible to join the festive fun with Choose Your Way Warwick, so we are giving away TWO x £50 Amazon Gift Cards drawn from everyone who has joined the programme, taken the Baseline Survey and used the app to record at least one car-free trip by the end of November. 

Daily Prizes; 12 days of Christmas

Choose Your Way Warwick participants will have SEVEN chances to win every single day from 12-24 December, with £20's worth of prizes daily. All you need to do to enter is track a car-free journey of at least half a mile within the campus area using the BetterPoints app, then check your timeline the following day to see if you're a lucky winner.

Each day we'll give away:

o   1x 10,000 BetterPoints

o   1x 5,000 BetterPoints

o   5x 1,000 BetterPoints

You can earn up to four BetterTickets (prize draw entries) per day, so try to make all your short journeys on foot, by bike or using public/university transport to maximise your chances of winning. You can spend your winning points on any of the in-app vouchers, so the choice is yours!

Secret Santa

We're also going to run some surprise rewards to keep you on your toes. Make sure you're as car-free as you can be, and you record all your journeys in December to give yourself the biggest possible chance of winning!

You could ditch the car for a walk or use one of the University's e-Scooters or hire bikes (UniCycles at Warwick) to zip between buildings. If you need to go further afield how about using one of the plug-in hybrid vehicles which are available to rent from our Car Club scheme?

While you're out gathering points, make sure to check back regularly. We'll be recognising those who are really committed to sustainable and active travel, with prize draws and awards. You'll find these on this page and in your timeline.
