Short Answer: Grifols offers bonuses for new donors and referrals. Rates vary by location, but the new donor bonus may be as much as twice the regular rate for a single donation, and you can receive it for your first few visits. For more about the Grifols bonus programs, see below.
Grifols New Donor Bonus Program
Grifols plasma donation centers offer a bonus for new donors (typically for the first few visits), though the bonus amount varies by location. While the company does not pay directly for plasma, it does compensate donors for their time and effort, and donors can visit up to twice per week.
To qualify for the bonus, you need to meet the donation requirements (listed below) and be a new Grifols donor. While rates vary, you can usually earn around $75 to $80 each for your first five visits (compared to around $40 to $55 each for subsequent visits). The bonus applies to more than just the first visit because donors need to make at least two donations before their plasma can be used.
Other Bonuses at Grifols
In addition to a bonus program for new donors, Grifols also offers a referral bonus through its Buddy Bonus Program. If you’re a qualified donor and refer someone who also qualifies and makes a donation, you can receive a bonus of up to $100.
The company advertises other periodic bonus programs online and on its social media pages.
To donate plasma at Grifols, you’ll need to meet several requirements, including the following:
- 18 to 69 years old
- Over 110 pounds
- Generally in good health
After verification with a valid photo ID, you’ll undergo a medical questionnaire and may need to complete a physical exam. If you don’t qualify, you’ll be rejected, meaning you can’t donate or deferred, meaning you can reapply at a later date.
While stricter than FDA donation standards, Grifols’s donation requirements are meant to prevent the possible transmission of diseases like HIV. Individuals who are temporarily deferred will be put on a registry until their deferral period expires.
