Thumbtack Pro Rewards is made up of three tiers - Silver, Gold, and Platinum. Not only do these tiers recognize your consistently great service, but they also come with rewards! Here are some of the rewards you can receive - as you reach higher tiers you’ll unlock new rewards.  

Silver rewards include things like expedited support
, Thumbtack swag, and exclusive success workshops.

Gold rewards include things like priority phone support, eligibility for our pro partnership committee, and marketing support.

Platinum rewards include things like a Top Pro badge and access to concierge support.

You qualify for rewards by earning points as you accept jobs and respond to new leads. And by continuing to offer excellent customer service on Thumbtack.

    What if I don't get enough leads to even earn enough points to get Platinum? Last MONTH I got 6 leads. At this rate I will 1800 points and will NEVER be able to be a platinum Top Pro. I have been a Top Pro with Thumbtack since they started the program and use it in my marketing all the time. Now it is impossible for me to get it because I don't get enough leads from TT. When I called customer support I was told to make myself more available. I take Sundays off. ONE DAY A WEEK OFF! I also hide my company when I am working a wedding because it would be highly unproffessional to be on my phone sending quotes when I am supposed to be working someone's wedding. And with the response time requirements on Top Pros, I would NEED to reply in the middle of wedding or I would be penalized.


    This new system is horrible. Get rid of the points system per lead. Do something a little more fare for pros who don't get as many leads.

    @Galager thank you for your thoughtful response. As a former wedding business owner myself, I definitely understand your concern and it says a lot about your dedication to your clients. Remember, the response time requires that 1-hour response only a percentage of the time, not all of the time. Also, you can use things like saved replies so that you can quickly respond to customers without taking time away from your work. As far as leads go, if you want to DM me we can take a look at your account and see if there is anything else we can do to get more leads. And let's keep this dialogue open - please keep sharing your experience as this rolls out.

  • It says our company is at platinum status, but how do we claim our rewards? I need to speak with a Thumbtack representative, but getting ahold of someone is nearly impossible. We are supposed to have a "concierge" - where is this feature?

    Hi @vocallabnyc congrats, that is amazing! If you go to your rewards overview page you can see where to register for things like the Success Workshop or Marketing Workshops (if you can't find where, just let me know!), and your Top Pro badge will automatically show on your profile so you don't need to do anything there. If you will send me a DM with your best email/phone number I will have a member of the concierge team reach out to you - you are automatically routed to that team when you call or email, but I think support is pretty backed up right now coming back from the holiday closure and I want to make sure you get taken care of!

    Well, some time has passed and this new system is still terrible. I have been a top pro with TT since the program started and a 'Best Of' pro for years before that. I got a grand total of 6 leads last month. SIX! How am I supposed to be able to get Top Pro if it is based on the number of leads YOU SEND ME?

    At this rate it will take me 40 months (over 3 years) to get enough points from enough leads from TT to qualify for your platinum level.

    @Galager Sorry about your frustration. You need 2400 points to qualify for Platinum - you already have 1000 points and you have until the end of February to reach 2400 (not sure where your 40 months math came in, but you get 100 points for each lead, so you are on track). You also already have the star rating and response time to get there (you actually have 100% response rate which is really amazing).

    I understand that these are tough times for events, as not a lot of people are gathering in big groups. But, new rewards cycles begin every 3 months, so every 3 months you have a chance to re-qualify. And, hopefully things pick up soon! Hope this helps!

  • How does someone with 2 hires (not me) get Top Pro status? What's the math?

    @bgood2021 If you look at the requirements, "hires" is not one of them, because it is on the customers to mark pros as hired, so it is hard to accurately track. So even if it says someone was only hired 2 times, chances are they have been hired more than that. Hope this helps!
