If this is your first time giving blood with Vitalant, we have a special thank-you. Give the gift of life, and you’ll receive $30 in gift cards!

Give blood for the first time Oct. 4-Oct. 18 at any Vitalant blood donation center, and we’ll thank you with $30 in prepaid gift cards.* Be sure to use the code New2Give-1001-O when making your appointment at a Vitalant donation center or mention this promotion code when they come to donate. (NOTE: New Jersey/New York donors are excluded from this promotion.). 


In less than an hour of your time, you'll save up to 3 lives, and also receive a free health screening. All blood donors get a cholesterol test and other heart health assessments as part of the blood donation process.

Important information about this thank-you gift:

  • The bonus points offer is for participating donors who come to donate from Wednesday, October 4 through Wednesday, October 18, 2023, at any Vitalant donation center.
  • Use code New2Give-1001-O when making your appointment.
  • Donors are encouraged to opt in to the recognition program prior to their donation. However, donors will have a 14-day grace period after their donation to opt in to receive points for that donation.
  • The gift card(s) will NOT be handed out at the blood donation location.
  • A redemption email will NOT be sent. Instead, within 7-14 days after donation, enough bonus points will be added to the donor’s account to redeem for $30 worth of the gift card(s) of their choice.
  • Donors must log in to their donor account to access the online donor store to redeem their points for the gift card(s).
  • Donors must have a valid email address in their Vitalant donor record to get the electronic gift card(s), which will be emailed to them.
  • Some donors may qualify for additional promotions during this same time frame.
  • Bonus points: Enterprise donors who schedule an appointment without using the code, but come to donate and mention the code New2Give-1001-O can call the CCC at 877-258-4825, option 2, to be included on a list of donors who will manually receive the bonus points.
