Buzz Channel reserves the right to vary the value of Bee Points and the number of Bee Points offered for any survey..

At any time prior to you requesting your voucher, you may log in to your membership area and transfer the amount in your Voucher Rewards Total to a Fundraising Group or nominated school.
