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...If you order 50 PV (just think of it as $50) worth of products, you earn points that you can cash in on products. If there's ever a month when the budget is tight or you just don't feel like you need 50 PV worth of items, the only requirement to keep your perks is a 1 PV order. That means you can just grab a single oil or a lip balm or a tube of toothpaste and call it a day. You won't earn points on orders under 50 PV but you'll maintain all of your perks! 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 very reasonable & fast AND YOU EARN POINTS ON YOUR SHIPPING FEE AS WELL. 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 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. There are also months they 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.
+ I have yet to be restricted on what I can "spend" my points on. Diffusers are excluded but, other than very rare exceptions on certain oils/products, you're free to use your points on whatever you'd like! 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. I'm also a huge fan of their supplements and I'm PICKY about supplements (and have tried tons), so I'm getting some of those items from Doterra as well. The other part is that my family loves many of the products so much more than what we used to use. Examples of this are toothpaste and mouthwash. My husband loves it and even my 6 year old will use it when before they wouldn't go near what I was using because they disliked the taste so much. 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!
