What is Essential Rewards (ER)?

It’s a monthly loyalty program where you earn points for your purchases.

Think of it like Stitch Fix or Birch Box but instead of clothes or makeup, you’re getting a monthly box of wellness products AND you get to choose exactly what you want.

So here’s how it works – you enroll in the program in the Virtual Office.

It’s a monthly $50 PV commitment and really so easy to make that when you make healthy swaps in your home with Young Living products.

For instance, you can get Thieves toothpaste, Thieves laundry soap, Thieves dishwasher detergent, ART skin care system, vitamins, protein powder, and, of course, more essential oils.

You’re probably buying most of this anyway from Target, Wal-Mart or the health food store, but not getting anything back.

With Young Living, you’ll get 10-25% back in points for your purchases and discounted shipping. You can then redeem your points to get FREE products.

We’re going to walk you through how to set up y our ER and why you need to try for at least 4 months so you can start earning 20% back (which you earn after your third month in the program)… AND you’ll get a loyalty gift from Young Living too. Win-win!

Scroll through each graphic below to learn all about it – what it is, the benefits and how to get started.

#1: Welcome to Essential Rewards!

Woo-hoo! We’re so happy to have you here. We’re going to use this photo album to show you why Essential Rewards ROCKS!

You’ll learn about the benefits of Essential Rewards, how to set it up, and how to CASH in those points.

#2: Why We Made the Switch

About 3 years ago, we started on our oily journey to clean up our home. Literally.

We had learned that there were toxins lurking everywhere – kitchen, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and even the laundry room.

We had assumed that stores like Target and Wal-Mart sold products that were safe for homes, but little did we know most of those products contained toxins that were poisoning our bodies.

Those toxins have been linked to serious health issues that frankly aren’t listed on the labels of products like shampoo or body lotion, but when we looked it up on the EWG.org and the Think Dirty app we were SHOCKED.

We found that most beauty, personal care, cleaning and laundry products contained a TON of toxic chemicals, such as endocrine (hormone) disruptors, which can accelerate aging and cause fertility issues; carcinogens, which mean they can CAUSE cancer; and allergens and skin irritants.

In addition, most of those products contain synthetic fragrances that were linked to respiratory issues and asthma.

That’s when we knew we had to make a change for good. We wanted to use products that were good for our bodies and our family.

We couldn’t afford to do everything at once, so we started making changes with 2-3 products at a time. First, we got the premium starter kit.

Then we got on Essential Rewards and started placing monthly orders so we could replace things in our home – like Thieves Toothpaste and Thieves Household Cleaner.

We cleaned up our home a little each month and now we’re chemical free.

And the BEST part is that with each monthly order we racked up ER points for our purchases so we could make those healthy swaps even FASTER!

Truth be told… We have thousands of dollars of Young Living products in our home that we got for FREE thanks to Essential Rewards.

#3: What is Essential Rewards?

Who else gets excited when the Young Living box shows up at the door? We do!

Well, with Essential Rewards – you’d get a Young Living box at your door every month.

Think of it like Stitch Fix, Birch Box, or Kiwi Crate – it’s a subscription box but instead of clothes or makeup, you’re getting a monthly box of wellness products AND you get to choose exactly what you want.

So here’s how it works – you enroll in the program in the Virtual Office.

It’s a monthly $50 PV commitment and really so easy to make that when you make healthy swaps in your home with Young Living products.

For instance, you can get Thieves toothpaste, Thieves laundry soap, Thieves dishwasher detergent, ART skin care system, vitamins, protein powder, and, of course, more essential oils.

You’re probably buying most of this anyway from Target, Wal-Mart or the health food store, but not getting anything back.

With Young Living, you’ll get 10-25% back in points for your purchases and discounted shipping. You can then redeem your points to get FREE products.

Watch this video tutorial (https://youtu.be/zqkiUA3UcrQ) by Gold leader Kristina Teaff and we’ll share more about Essential Rewards and what your monthly box might look like.

We recommend just giving it a try for at least 4 months so you can start earning 20% back (which you earn after your third month in the program) AND you’ll get a loyalty gift from Young Living too. Win-win!

 

#4: Essential Rewards Simplified

You just learned a TON about Essential Rewards in the last video. But we want to make it super simple to understand how it works – especially for those of you who are more visual.

So I’m just going to tell you. Essential Rewards is even BETTER than when I first started. It used to take a whole year to earn 20% back.

Now that happens after just 3 months on the program. And we never got loyalty gifts either. You guys sure are lucky. 

#5: Transfer Buying

We talked a little about transfer buying but let’s go over it more detail. So you might be thinking – I don’t have $50-100 to spend each month on Essential Rewards. I used to think the same thing.

But then we realized that I was spending the money already. So we could just STOP BUYING at Target, Wal-Mart or the health food store and start buying from Young Living.

That’s what we call transfer buying. You’re not spending more money – you’re spending money in a different place.

And with Essential Rewards you earn 10-25% back in points and earn loyalty gifts the longer you’re on the program.

I don’t remember Target or the health food store giving me 10-25% back or loyalty gifts.

Speaking of gifts… Did you know you can actually use Essential Rewards for giving gifts too? That’s one more thing we’ve stopped buying at Target.

Here are some fun GIFT IDEAS you can put on your next Essential Rewards order:

-Birthday for her: Joy, Dragon Time, Sensation Massage Oil, L’Briatne Lip Gloss/Scent, Satin Mint Scrub

-Birthday for him: Deep Relief Roll-On, Ortho Sport Massage Oil, Mirah Shave Oil

-Birthday for kids: KidScents, KidScents Diffuser, KidScents Bath Gel

I mean we still love Target and all, but let’s face it… I’d rather get my toothpaste and shampoo from Young Living.

I’ll save Target for toilet paper and socks for my kids.

#8: How to Get Started with ER – Step 1

Alright…you’re DEFINITELY convinced now!!! I knew it! Let me tell you how to join! It’s super easy.
Here’s what you do:

Step #1:
+Log into your Virtual Office and click the “Essential Rewards” tab on the far left column

#9: How to Get Started wtih ER – Step 2

Step #2:

+Click “Join Now”

+Pick exactly what items you want to come in your ER – aka your monthly wellness box (this is the FUN part!!)

You can easily look through the catalog OR search for products where the white bar is that says “product name or number”

+Then click “Save Monthly Order”

#10: How to Get Started with ER – Step 3

Step #3:

+Pick a date that you want your order to be delivered. You can change your date every month if you want!

So if you need to wait until later in the month to have your order processed, you can change it. Or if you want to get your box ASAP, move it to the first of the month.

If you are wanting your order to go through this month, you need to make sure you pick a date PAST today.

For example, when you are setting your ER up for the first time, if today was the 10th and you pick the 1st-9th, then your ER will be scheduled to process NEXT month.

Tips / Rules

+You have until midnight the day that your order processes to change your order.

+For wholesale members

+You must place a 50PV minimum order

+Be sure to double check your order the night that it processes to see if anything has gone out of stock. If things go OOS (out of stock), they won’t be included in your order.

+To ensure your PV isn’t affected when things go out of stock, make sure to set up PV assistant! It is super easy and makes sure you don’t lose out on those freebies and discounts you want!

+ If something goes OOS and your order is less than 50pv minimum, it sets you back to “Month 1” status and you lose your tenure with ER.

That’s why setting up PV assistant is great because you can add an extra shampoo, laundry detergent, lavender oil, hand soap, or anything you want that the system will automatically add to your cart if something goes OOS last minute. Don’t risk it – get PV assistant!

#11: How to Cash In ER Points

Now you have all these amazing points that you can turn in for free product, but how do you do it?!

You redeem your ER points in free products by placing a Quick Order. Select the item(s) you’d like to purchase with your points and put them in your cart.

When you get to the checkout page, look for “Essential Rewards Points”.

You will be able to select which products you can use your ER points on by clicking the box next to your product under the “essential rewards points” tab.

You are able to redeem your points after your second month of being enrolled in ER.

There are a very FEW products that you can’t use ER points on and this includes:

+Brand new products released in the last 6 months

+Products (like diffusers) that are not the full PV value. (The PV amount and dollar amount must be the same in order to be eligible).

A couple tips:<
+Look for the little blue flag next to the products in your VO. If they have the blue flag, they are eligible to be purchased with points.

+Your points don’t expire for an entire 12 months after earning them.
+You need to use ALL ER points before cancelling your membership if you decide to or your will forfeit your points.
