Design Trade VIP Program

Members of the design trade handling the bidding process on behalf of their clients can receive a $500 Visa gift card for every client who signs a contract with a Sweeten general contractor.

Here’s how it works:
  • Post a renovation and choose that you’re “representing owner” as a designer or architect.
  • After you’ve posted a project, we’ll reach out to confirm your eligibility for the Design Trade VIP Program.
  • As a Design Trade VIP member, you’ll receive a $500 Visa gift card for every client who signs a contract with one of their Sweeten general contractor matches.
