How do I earn prizes?

Community Booksellers must achieve the required personal sales PQV threshold through Personal, Event and/or Referral Sales. The annual registration fee does not count toward the Winter Challenge.

Where can I see my progress towards achieving the challenge?

This landing page showing all Community Booksellers in the running — as well as the PQV they’ve earned — will be updated weekly and winners will be announced in the Facebook Group. The final list of achievers will be posted on the landing page the week of February 14, 2022, and winners will be notified via email.

What if I cannot attend the Barefoot Retreat?

Step 3 winners who do not attend the Barefoot Retreat will be given the option to receive an alternate prize of $100 in Barefoot Bucks (redeemable for $200 in Barefoot Books products when applied to a personal order). Barefoot Bucks must be redeemed within 180 days of the date they are earned. Barefoot Bucks are non-transferrable.

There is no substitution for the Barefoot Behind-the-Scenes experience (Step 4). This prize is non-transferrable.

When will I receive my prize?

All achievers will receive a notification via email with instructions on how to redeem their prizes. All prizes will be dispatched by June 19, 2022*. Please note, in the event of an unforeseen circumstance, Barefoot Books reserves the right to substitute prizes if required. Acceptance of these prizes authorizes Barefoot Books to use winners’ names, images, etc. in future marketing materials.

Fulfillment will happen as follows:

    • All achievers will be sent an email by February 28, 2022 with a link to claim their prize, choose prize options (Steps 1 and 2), and provide a mailing address (Steps 1 and 2).
    • Step 3 and 4 achievers will be asked to confirm Retreat attendance by June 1, 2022. Those who are unable to attend the Retreat event may request an alternate prize of $100 Barefoot Bucks, which will be added to their accounts by June 30, 2022.

*Prize redemption date subject to change based on availability. All Winter Challenge prizes are non-transferrable.
