May 20, 2020: Please note Hot Streak Challenges are temporarily being paused while we work on enhancing some functionalities and features.
What are Hot Streaks?
Hot Streaks is a brand new feature that enables Teespring users to win rewards. By completing your challenge for the week, you win a reward and unlock a new ‘hot streak’ challenge for the following week.
Who is eligible for Hot Streaks?
This feature is in beta and being rollout out to accounts over time. We’re excited to roll out Hot Streaks to all Teespring users in the coming weeks. Visit your Teespring dashboard now to see if you’ve unlocked this feature and start your first challenge today.
How do Hot Streaks work?
Once you’ve gotten access to this feature you will see a Hot Streaks tab in the overview section of your Teespring dashboard. From here you will see this week’s Hot Streak challenge.
How long do Hot Streaks last?
Challenges last from Sunday to Sunday (11pm PT / 2am ET) and you can complete one challenge per week. Aim to complete your challenge before the end time on Sunday to receive your reward and unlock the next challenge.
What are my challenges based on?
Challenges are customized based on your personal performance. As you become more successful with Teespring your challenges and rewards will be modified to keep up with your progress.
What happens if I ‘fail’ to complete my challenge?
Not to fear! Your current hot streak will simply refresh, allowing you to attempt to complete your challenge the following week.
What types of rewards can I win?
Winners can receive prizes like free samples, new pricing discounts, Teespring sponsored sales, giveaways, store credit, personal account managers, and more!

How do reward tiers work?
You are assigned a reward tier each week based on your performance in the previous week. There are three reward tiers; bronze, silver, and gold. Each tier contains a different set of rewards. The higher the tier, the more valuable the rewards.
Each week, you will have a target amount of sales. If you achieve your target you will maintain your current rewards tier the following week. If you exceed your target you will unlock a higher tier the following week. If you miss your target, you will go down one tier the following week.
- Bronze: Free sample
- Silver: Free sample or a sponsored sale
- Gold: Free sample, sponsored sale, or a sponsored giveaway
Keep in mind gold is the highest tier, so your aim is to reach and maintain the gold tier every week. We plan to expand the variety of rewards per tier, so keep an eye out for updates!
Note that all users start with no tier, and if you accomplish your goal then you move up to Bronze in the following week.
Do rewards expire?
You must claim your reward within seven days or you will lose access to it. Once claimed, the reward will be saved in the rewards bank of your Hot Streaks account. You’ll have 30 days to use the reward before it expires.
