If you plan to purchase essential oils on a regular basis, then the best way to get the most oils for the least about of money is by participating in the doTERRA “Loyalty Rewards” program. Loyalty Rewards are TOTALLY OPTIONAL, but it is the smartest and most cost effective way to obtain essential oils because you accrue loyalty rewards points for each purchase that is made. If you choose to participate it is basically like earning “frequent flier miles.” Once the points are accrued they can be used to get essential oils for FREE!
The amount of points that you receive increases over time, beginning at 10% and capping out at 30%.
Basically, if you think about it, you can really buy product at approximately a 50% discount off of retail when you combine a wholesale membership (25% discount) with the loyalty rewards points (10-30% back in FREE product).
Here are some other really great aspects of the loyalty rewards program:
In order to earn points, you only need to spend 50 PV per month. That will earn you points, and keep you progressing along the timeline above. However, remember if you are an IPC who is sharing the oils, your minimum to earn a commission is 100PV.
Recently, doTERRA added a hardship clause to their rewards program, which was very generous. This means you can maintain your points AND your accrual status (the level above), by placing an order of just $1. You will not earn points in that month if your order is between 1-49 PV, and your will not progress in point accrual status, but you will maintain all that you have accrued to that point. This can greatly help with occasional hardships.
Points can be redeemed anytime, so you can allow the points to accrue and cash in a lump sum.
Eligibility for the product of the month club! This is probably one of my FAVORITE aspects to the loyalty rewards program! IF you order 125PV by the 15th of the month, you will earn a FREE oil EVERY month! It is always different, and I find it exciting to see what free oil I receive in the mail each month.
You can modify your order each month through your virtual office, each month choosing the oils or products that your family needs. You can opt out of the program at anytime.
It has recently occurred to me that many people are still unclear where the financial benefits of the Loyalty Rewards Program are concerned. I admit, looking at it in a linear fashion, doesn't give you a clear cut answer as to the actual savings you're receiving by participating. At first, I didn’t really comprehend the value, especially when you start at 10%. But, when once you reach some of the higher tiers, the points REALLY add up fast. I recently just cashed in $400 in free product which I can use for Christmas gifts! That was really helpful for me at this time of the year when holiday spending makes funds a little tight. Let me break it down in dollars and cents, so you can see the ACTUAL savings.
SAVINGS IN THE FIRST YEAR @ $50 PER MONTH ACCRUAL STATUS PERCENTAGE RETURN POINT APPLIED FOR FREE PRODUCT MONTH 1-3 10% $ 15.00 MONTH 4-6 15% $ 22.50 MONTH 7-9 20% $ 30.00 MONTH 10-12 25% $ 37.50 ANNUAL Savings in 1st YRTOTAL$105.00Every year thereafter, once reaching the 30% status,get $180 in product
SAVINGS IN THE FIRST YEAR @ $100 PER MONTH ACCRUAL STATUS PERCENTAGE RETURN POINT APPLIED FOR FREE PRODUCT MONTH 1-3 10% $ 30.00 MONTH 4-6 15% $ 45.00 MONTH 7-9 20% $ 60.00 MONTH 10-12 25% $ 75.00 ANNUAL Savings in 1st YRTOTAL$210.00Every year thereafter, once reaching the 30% status,get $360 in product
Now, it really gets interesting if you spend $125 PV per month (ordered by the 15th) because you qualify for the free product every month. Since the product is different every month, I can’t precisely calculate the savings. But, let’s average the value of the free product at $12 per month, which would be an annual bonus valued at around $144.
Therefore the $125 PV per month savings would look something like this:
$262 per year in the first year + $144 in product of the month club = $406 savings $450 per year in subsequent years + $144 in product of the month = $594 savings
I personally spend approximately $200 per month on my loyalty rewards order. This includes supplements, and all the other oils we use daily plus our skin care products, shampoo and conditioners, and with that I even make most of our cleaning products. As for me, I would make necessary adjustments in other areas in order to heal myself in a purely natural manner. If anyone asked me what it is worth to know I am caring for myself and my family in a way that has no side effects, I would not be able to put a price tag on that. $200, to me, is a bargain in so many ways.
And, many find that by sharing the benefits of essential oils with others, they can actually offset the cost of their own products COMPLETELY! Helping others become empowered is not only rewarding, but can have financial benefits as well.
Let's raise awareness, and share these gifts with others so they, too, can experience these great blessings of health and happiness.
Let's take control of our health and help our family and friends do the same. And, in the process, you will see how your own cost will be reduced, if not FREE
