If a waitlist for Escape becomes necessary, the list will be organized according to the total number of Lifestyle Credits earned by the Social Marketer during the entire qualification period (March through August).

Social Marketers will have twenty-four hours from that notification to confirm their spot with flight receipts or their spot will be offered to someone else.



We are looking forward to our 2021 Escape Trip in Los Cabos this November! However, we are very mindful of the ever-changing conditions around COVID-19, gatherings, and travel. As a special exception this year only, we are offering 20,000 points to those who choose not to attend, to be applied to the 2022 Escape qualifications.

Please note that this is a one-time allowance because of the complicated circumstances surrounding travel, as well as personal health and safety. In the coming years, we will not be able to offer points to those who choose not to attend. If you do not attend but qualify for Escape, the additional 20,000 points will be added at the beginning of 2022 Escape qualifications. No additional action is needed.

*If you have already registered to attend Escape and wish to cancel and instead take the 20,000 points, you must email escape@modere.com by October 1st or incur a $600 penalty. *

How do I reserve my spot?

What are the two waves? When will I be able to decide what wave I am in?

At the time of registration, Social Marketers will have the option to choose between two dates. 

Wave #1: November 3 – 7, 2021

Wave #2: November 7 – 11, 2021

Social Marketers DO NOT have the option to stay for both waves. When one wave is filled, the only option will be the other wave. 

Can I reserve a spot in one of the waves before registering, or for another Social Marketer on my team?

No. We are unable to reserve or hold any spots for Social Marketers that are not yet qualified. Registration in one of the two waves is first come, first served. When one wave is filled, you will only have the option to attend during the other wave. 

What if I qualify in August and there are no more available rooms?

Once all rooms are filled, Modere will establish a waiting list with priority based on the most Lifestyle Credits earned. Social Marketers will have twenty-four hours to confirm their spot with flight receipts or their spot will be offered to someone else.

Will Modere cover the cost of any excursions?

No. Any excursions will come at the expense of the Social Marketer. They will also need to be booked by the Social Marketer. Modere will not book excursions or any additional experiences will in Cabo. 

Should I reserve my spot if I’m not sure I’ll be able to attend?

Please do not confirm your spot unless you are absolutely sure you will be attending. You will also need to show proof that you have purchased your flight to Mexico when you register. There is a cancellation/no-show fee of $600 that will be charged if you have registered, and then you are unable to attend for any reason. 

Will there be an airfare cash-out if I don’t use up the allotted amount earned?

No. If you don’t use the entire $600 credit, any remaining balance will be forfeited. 

What happens if I am unable to attend?

If a Social Marketer is unable to attend the Modere Escape, they must notify Modere in writing. If you have already registered for your spot, there will be a cancellation fee of $600 for cancellations made after October 1st or no-shows at the event. If you have not registered and reserved your spot, there will be no penalty or cash-out option. Please submit all cancellations via email to escape@modere.com.

I qualified for the 2020 Escape trip that was canceled due to COVID-19. What does that mean for this year? 

2020 Escape qualifiers were offered two options in place of the 2020 trip:  

  1. Escape Bonus + 15,000 points towards 2021 qualifications: All bonuses have been paid out and your points will be shown in the miscellaneous section in your escape widget.
  2. Deferment: Your spot has been guaranteed for the 2021 Escape trip (accommodations for two ONLY). To qualify for airfare or additional upgrades, you will still need to meet the minimum lifestyle credits for the respective rewards. Although you are guaranteed a spot on the 2021 trip regardless of final qualification during this period, no previous lifestyle credits will be added during this qualification period. Upgrades must be earned using only the credits accumulated between March and August (2021) during this qualification period.

Why are my Escape points showing differently than my rank in my back office?

Lifestyle credits are based on your Team Builder Bonus rank. So if you are being paid as a Director 2, but only qualifying at the Director 1 Team Builder Bonus level, you would get 10,000 lifestyle credits for the D1 rank. Team Builder bonus rank is calculated using your Enrollment Organization Points (EOP). You can find more details on this in the compensation plan brochure.

When will my bonus points show up for being a Modere Mover each month?

The Modere Mover bonus points will be visible in the “Modere Mover Consistency Bonus” section in your back-office widget. These points will be updated on a daily basis and awarded to qualifying accounts once you have achieved 30 or more Mover points during the qualification period. These 10,000 bonus points can only be earned once during the qualification period.

Does Modere cover my transportation while in Cabo?

Modere will cover transfers from the Cabo Airport to the resort. All other transportation will be at the expense of the Social Marketer. 

What kind of travel documents do I need for Los Cabos, Mexico?

It is the responsibility of the Social Marketer to have proper travel documentation, including a passport.

What if I want to extend my stay?

Qualifiers are welcome to arrive early in Los Cabos and/or extend their stay, at the expense of the Social Marketer.
