With the new points bank, you no longer need to match the exact amount of items in your cart to the amount of points you have. The system will calculate the points you need to check out and will bank the rest for future use.

You can bank the following point card types:

  • 20 Point Plastic Urewards Cards
  • 15 Point Thank You Cards
  • 10 Point Happy 2021 Cards
  • 5 Point Plastic Urewards Cards
  • 1 Point Peer to Peer Recognition Cards

In order to use the points bank, you’ll need to set up an account on the Urewards Exchange. You can do this by clicking on the Person icon on the top right-hand corner of the screen, and complete the information on the CREATE MY ACCOUNT section on the right. You must use an approved UVA email address to create your account –,,,, or You’ll use this same icon to log in whenever you want to access the Urewards Exchange.

Once your account is created, you’ll be able to bank points, review your orders and manage you account information. And you’ll always know how many points you have available when you log in but looking at the orange oval points indicator at the upper right-hand corner of the screen.
