Our contests and rewards
Our contests and reward programs.
Last Updated: April 28th, 2022
Our CircleIn rewards & contests provide students with incentivized ways of studying with their peers on CircleIn. Specific study actions completed on CircleIn provide points students can earn and track in their Leaderboard. Each of our contests reward students based on their effort, skill, and merit in their performance on our platform.
In order to be eligible for our contests, you must follow the following rules:
- Complete designated, eligible action(s) as outlined in contest
- See full points breakdown and eligible study actions here
- Complete said action(s) within the designated time range or by the specified end date for that contest
- Action(s) must comply with the CircleIn Community Guidelines, otherwise the user will risk disqualification. Please see full Community Guidelines here
- Top earners have an increased chance of winning contests as they are not randomized or raffle based. For contests, all participants will be put in order of who has done the most during the contest. The top users who completed the most contest related actions will be selected as winners.
Our verification system will go through and validate the content of your action(s) after the contest duration ends. Selected winners are notified by email.
Ongoing Contests (Spring 2022) - (Spring Contests & Rewards end May 27th)
A weekly contest held from Monday 12:01AM UTC to Thursday 11:59PM UTC of each week. User(s) must complete designated study action(s) as outlined in the missions panel on the right sidebar in the web app.
'Top Earners' have an increased chance of winning as this contest is not randomized or raffle based. A top earner for the CircleIn Fridays contest is defined as any user that exceeds the minimum requirement of the designated study action outlined for that week’s contest, also known as "mission", as stated on the support page here. All participants will be listed in order of who has completed the most of that "mission", or study action, during the contest duration. The top 200 users that have the most contest related study actions will be selected as winners.
We select approx. 200 winners each week. Winners will receive an Amazon e-gift card by email and a congratulatory email Friday by 5PM PST.

Users that meet the minimum required earned points will be eligible to receive an e-gift card as their reward prize for the monthly reward contest. Top earners have an increased chance of winning as this contest is not randomized or raffle based. A top earner for the CircleIn Monthly Reward contest is defined as any user that earns more than the minimum required points (300,000) and does so through a variety of study actions (see full list of eligible study actions here).
