It then goes on to show how many tier points you’ve earned and a calculation of exactly how many Tier Credits you would earn under the new system. I’m a Seven Star for the first time as of November and I earned 104,000+ Tier credits. Under the new system based on the number of points I would be over the new 150,000 no problem.
The only thing not clear whether the Bonus points are active as of today or April 1st. Based on them doing a calculation on my bonus points I'm assuming that it starts as of January 1st. I have a question into Q & A that's awaiting a response.
