  • 5,000 award points for each OAP membership sold
  • Minus any chargebacks – If you’re charged back dollars, you’ll be charged back the proportionate number of points to match the new policy value. Chargebacks after the qualification deadline will be applied to next year’s incentive trip point total.

*Unique rules apply for some funeral homes including Selected Services; please confirm with your manager if you have any questions.

Managers may participate as an Advance Funeral Planner and receive points on business that they personally produce as outlined for AFPs. Additionally, managers will earn an override equal to one fourth of the award points earned by an AFP in their region.

Advance Funeral Planners must earn a minimum of 1,000,000 points to qualify for the trip (May 1-6, 2021). Additional points as well as Academy points can be used for room upgrades, extra nights, excursions, etc. Rollover points carried over from previous years can be used for upgrades and excursions once the AFP or manager has already qualified based on 2020 sales.

  • The base cost for Thailand is 1.7 million points. This is the cost of attending the trip. It’s a little more than the qualification level, which is 1.4 million points. We’re keeping qualification low, so more people can qualify. If you were here in 2015, we did something similar for our Europe trip (1.2 million to qualify, trip cost of 1.6 million).
How can I pay for or earn the 300,000 point difference?

You can use rollover points from previous years, you can use additional qualification points, you can keep earning points until Jan 31, 2022. You can even pay for all or part of the 300,000 points with cash. Any points left after you’ve paid the total 1.7 million base cost can be used to pay for upgrades and excursions (or rolled over to another year).
