FAQs

Q: What ranks are there?

Lifetime Challenge Coins, visible in your profile, earn you rank titles which are displayed with your reviews. The higher your rank, the more active you are on Pathfinder.vet so the more you might be asked to special events or to get additional benefits and offers later on. The structure is subject to change, but you can never get demoted:

Q: A title? Is that all?

Nope! You can trade in coins with our growing list of partners, from small Veteran-owned and Spouse-owned companies to big time sponsors. This is a "thank you" to you for helping communities and lives improve with your suggestions and reviews.

Q: How can I get more coins?

The purpose of Pathfinder.vet is to share your knowledge and experience with others. Helpful reviews are the cat’s pajamas, so take the extra minute to put some detail and hints in there and earn thumbs up and more coins to trade in!

Challenge Coin History

Real Challenge Coins, the kind you get from military members and units, have a traditional use for being pulled out at a bar full of service members. The person with the lowest ranking coin (coin received from the lowest ranking individual, so a coin awarded from a Sergeant is worth less than a coin from a General) or someone without a coin to drop on the bar has to buy the next round of beers for the group.

We don’t have a bar at Pathfinder.vet, but we are building up our partners who are willing to offer you discounts and freebies. As we have different offers you will be able to drop some of your coins for things like free coffee, big discounts on gear, and so on. Your rank will not decrease: that is based on the number of coins you’ve ever earned. But you will have a trade bank so you will want to keep reviewing, keep voting on reviews, and keep getting friends to log in and mark your reviews as helpful so you can keep earning and using as offers become available.
