How rollovers work on the WW program

Got a special event coming up? Find out how rolled over SmartPoints® can help you make the most of your Budget.

In many ways, Mondays and Sundays can seem worlds apart. On a Monday, most of us are full of good intentions, we’ve got work or school commitments to occupy us and the social calendar is pretty empty. Keeping our well-being on track is usually quite straightforward. Weekends can be a different story— long, lazy lunches, birthday celebrations and evenings out with friends present an assortment of opportunities for us to potentially eat or drink more than you planned. This needn't be a cause for concern. When it comes to eating, every day is unique, which is why WW offers plenty of flexibility to help you achieve your goals.

 

What are rollovers?

 

Some days, we don’t use all the SmartPoints assigned to our daily Budget, while on other days we use them all—and maybe a few extra. Finding your balance is a matter of drawing on rollovers: the unused SmartPoints that you can ‘roll over’ to the days when you need them most. Each day, up to four unused daily SmartPoints will roll over into your weekly Budget. You can use them however you like—for a glass of wine, a dessert, or simply as a safety net on a night out. Or you can choose not to use them at all. The flexibility of rollovers and your weekly Budget means there’s no need to deny yourself anything. It goes to show that you can still make healthy choices while maintaining the lifestyle you love.

 

How will I know when I have rollovers?


If you have any extra SmartPoints at the end of the day, you will get a message letting you know how many SmartPoints were added to your weekly Budget. Rollovers will reset at the start of your Wellness Check-in week. If you don’t want to rollover SmartPoints into your weekly bank, you can opt out in your WW app settings at any time.
