Ok, here's the deal: I was enrolled in another essential oil "rewards" program for about 4 years and it honestly just wasn't a great fit for my needs. I stuck with it because it felt like the smartest way to get the products I was using regularly but it led to me buying a whole lot of stuff I didn't truly need, just to avoid losing my perks.
Here's why I'm personally obsessed with Doterra's Loyalty Rewards Program:
First off, what is it, right? It's totally optional monthly shipment of products you want...think of it as a "wellness box" that you can customize each month based off of what you want & need.
+ It's not a set in stone, "all or nothing" type of program. This was HUGE for me. Let me explain...The only requirement is that you order ONE item per month. That's It. It could be something as small as a lip balm, a bar of soap or a $10 oil. You're going to get get all of your shipping cost reimbursed in product points on your order and you'll keep any points that you've accrued just by ordering one item each month. Months you DO place a 50pv or more order you're going to earn a % back on your entire order, in addition to getting your shipping credited back in points. The beauty of it is that you can flip back and forth....say you place a 50pv order for a few months and are earning 15% back and then a month comes when you only order a lip balm...you're always going to get your shipping reimbursed in product points, you're going to keep all of the points you've racked up AND you're going to stay at the 15% tier.
Also, if there's ever a time when you just need to pause your subscription for a month or two, Doterra will gladly do so for you without any penalty. You'll maintain your point accrual rate and any points you've already earned. AMAZING.
+ Shipping is super reasonable and fast! I pay $3.99 for shipping, receive my order in less than a week and earn $4 in product credit to cover it. BOOM!
+ The longer you're in the program, the more points you earn back on your purchases:
Months 1-3 = 10% back in product credit
Months 4-6 = 15% back
Months 7-9 = 20% back
Months 10-12 = 25% back
Months 13+ = 30% back
I speak from experience when I say that the way they tier this is amazing. With my old program I had to be subscribed for 2 YEARS WITHOUT MISSING A MONTH OF 50PV ORDERS to reach a 25% point earning level.
+ Opportunity to earn free products with your order. If you place a 125 PV order that process by the 15th of the month, you'll earn yourself a free product. A few times a years they'll also offer freebies for a 200 PV order. I've gotten tons of oils, a car diffuser and all sorts of great stuff this way. With my old program, I rarely spent enough to quality for the free product(s) and many months felt tempted to spend much more than I needed or wanted to, just to take advantage of a big bundle of "freebies" that was dangled in front of me.
+ There are very few restrictions on what you can redeem your points on. Diffusers and brand new or limited edition/seasonal items are excluded but, other than that you're free to use your points on whatever you'd like! Once newly released items have been part of the product line for a few months you'll be able to cash in points to get them, which is great! For years with my old program I would go to cash in my points, only to find out that what I really wanted was ineligible to be purchased with points.
You guys, I LOVE this program and feel like it's truly benefiting me, rather than costing me money that I don't need to spend. Part of that is due to the fact that I'm actually using my oils constantly (because they're working for me for more than just general first-aid type use) and I'm actually using up my bottles, rather than having them sit on a shelf. The other part is that my family loves many of the products so much more than what we used to use. For years it was just me using things like our essential oil based toothpaste and mouthwash because nobody else liked them. Now Jason and the girls are using everything from toothpaste & mouthwash to deodorant and lip balm. Obviously some of this is personal preference but we've found that we 100% prefer not only the oils but the personal care and cleaning products from Doterra over what we had used for years before...we just personally think they smell better, taste better and work better!
