Arena Rewards

What is Arena Rewards?

Arena Rewards is a free customer loyalty program that allows participants to earn ARP (see below) by participating and engaging in activities on the Alienware Arena website. Earning ARP will raise your level on Alienware Arena and entitle you to a variety of rewards as detailed below. 


What are Arena Rewards Points (“ARP”)?

When you participate in Alienware Arena, you earn Arena Rewards Points (“ARP”). You can track your accumulated ARP through the Arena Rewards page. Earning ARP will raise your level on Alienware Arena and entitle you to a variety of rewards.

ARP can be tracked on your ARP Status Indicator (“ASI”) which displays ARP by category as well as daily, weekly and monthly results.


How do I earn ARP?

Being active on the site will always present opportunities for earning ARP.

  • Quests
    • By participating in daily and weekly Quests, you may gain ARP over time.  Quests consist of short, interactive games that have a chance of rewarding up to 100 ARP per Quest.
  • Voting on Member Content
    • Earn 1 ARP for every 5 votes (upvoting or downvoting). Voting helps curate the content on the site by rewarding members who contribute good content. Votes may affect a member’s Community Gain, and may result in rewarding that member with additional ARP.
  • Consecutive Logins
    • Earn 1 ARP multiplied by the number of consecutive days you log into Alienware Arena, up to a maximum of 10 days, at which point the counter will reset to 0 (day 1 = 1 ARP, day 2 = 2 ARP, day 3 = 3 ARP, etc.). 
  • Community Gain (“CG”)
    • Every post (video, image, thread, news or other posts, except for replies) has a hidden behind-the-scenes CG score.
    • CG is affected by other members voting on your posts.  As your post’s CG raises (based on the net from upvotes and downvotes), you will gain additional ARP.  
    • Members with higher ARP Levels, affect CG greater than lower ARP Levels.
    • CG scores and voting values are not publicly viewable.
    • The number viewable on each post shows the total number of upvotes minus the total number of downvotes, not the post’s hidden CG score.
    • If a post’s CG score drops below a certain threshold (based on the number of downvotes), the post will be automatically hidden and marked for review. If it is subsequently removed by an admin because it violates the TOS (such as SPAM, offensive, discriminatory, etc.), the following ARP deductions will occur.
      • Loss of all ARP gained from the post.
      • Loss of an additional 10 ARP.
      • Loss of 1 ARP for any member who upvoted the removed post.


What are ARP Levels and Tiers?

There are 30 ARP Levels divided into six Tiers: Noob, Casual, Enthusiast, Veteran, Hardcore and Elite. Gaining new ARP Levels and reaching new tiers will unlock new rewards and perks to use on the site. For more information on available perks and rewards, visit the Rewards Page.


What are Master Levels?

There are 5 Master Levels on Alienware Arena: Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum and Interstellar. Each time you reach the maximum ARP Level, by earning 500 ARP, the following will happen: (a) you will be granted access to your next available Master Level; (b) your ARP Level will reset back to 0 and (c) you will begin another journey toward the next available Master Level (if any).    However, you will retain all current perks and rewards already earned and be able to select new rewards at each tier.  Upon completion of all Tiers and Master Levels, you will no longer be able to claim more rewards, though you will continue to accumulate ARP for fun.


How do I claim Arena Rewards?

Digital rewards are automatically applied to your Alienware Arena account after you reach the required level.  View your rewards here

United States Residents Only:  Members residing within the United States (excluding Puerto Rico, Guam, and other U.S. territories and protectorates) who are at least 18 years of age can select 1 of 5 different rewards per Tier and choose an additional reward per Tier for each Master Level earned.  When a member reaches the next Tier, they will be prompted on the rewards page to select a reward. 

Redemption of some rewards require that:

  • You are or become a Dell Rewards member before you can redeem it, and/or
  • You provide a shipping address.


Why are some Arena Rewards only available in the United States?

Currently, our distribution can only ship to members located in the United States


I have a suggestion for Arena Rewards.  Who do I send it to?

All site suggestions should be posted in the “Suggestions” forum.


Why did I lose ARP?

You will see your ARP balance decrease if an image, video, group, comment, or event you added/created was removed. Content is removed when it is deemed inappropriate by an admin or moderator.  Members will lose all ARP gained on the post when it is removed.  Posts that do not follow the Alienware Arena Terms of Service (such as spam or posts that are offensive, discriminatory, etc.) will result in an additional loss of 10 ARP per removal, and the possibility of being banned from the site. 


What are Dell Rewards?

Dell Rewards (“DR”) are redeemable toward purchases directly from Dell, including Alienware, and may be provided to Alienware Arena members from time to time as a game prize, Tier reward, or randomly as a benefit of community engagement.  Rewards expire 90 days from the issue date.
