September 1st will be a good day. Not only are fall leaves (and scarves! and delicious lattes!) just around the corner, but Young Living’s autoship program Essential Rewards (or ER) will officially be better and more generous than ever. If you’re new to ER, we’ll break down a few of the basics. And if you’re a current user, we’ll explain how these updates will affect your monthly orders. Spoiler: It’s all good things.
What is Essential Rewards?
Essential Rewards is Young Living’s optional and free autoship program. Looking for a few bullet point highlights? You’ve got it!
- You can cancel at any time
- You can customize your order and order date each month
- Your minimum order each month is 50PV (PV=Product Value, typically a product’s dollar value before taxes and shipping).
If you want (a lot) more detail. Check out our Essential Rewards 101 page. It covers everything from signing up to cashing in points.
What are the Benefits?
Other than earning points you can use toward FREE products (more on that in a minute), here are a few extra special ER benefits.
- Reduced shipping
- Priority order for low-stock items
- Access to ER only products and kits
- Monthly ER only promo items
- Ability to earn more points on certain promotions
Now we’re getting somewhere! The ER makeover allows you earn points faster. Reminder: ER points are worth 1 PV. So once you have enough points to buy that oil or blend you’ve been dying to try, you can. For free. With your ER points.
The old scale worked like this:
- 1-6 months, 10% back
- 7-12 months, 15% back
- 13+ months, 20%
The new/enhanced/more generous scale will work like this:
- 1-3 months, 10%
- 4-24 months, 20%
- 24+ months, 25%
But wait, there’s more...
The new program also includes gifts(!) at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months.
How Does it Work for Existing ER Members?
The shift will be pretty straightforward for those of you who already use and love ER.
Percentage Points Status
You will receive the percentage points that align with the new scale. If you’ve been a member for 6 months, you’ll start receiving 20% back!
You will also have a chance to earn the milestone gifts. Everyone will start at month 0, and if you continue to use ER you’ll receive your first gift in 3 months.
