Oily Economics: Essential Rewards
OILY ECONOMICS series, part 4 –
Evon McDonald, Young Living Diamond, FCCI
Essential Rewards trumps every subscribe and save or credit card cash back program by a long shot. Here’s the comparison on those numbers
Easy Math: How much are you really getting back? On your credit card you get “cash back” on what you’ve already spent. It goes back on your card statement. As a wholesale member, you just don’t even have to spend it.
|AMAZON/CREDIT CARD||ESSENTIAL REWARDS|
|5% of $10 = $0.50.||24% of $10 = $2.40 0FF|
|5% of $50 = $2.50.||24% of $50 = $12.00 0FF|
|5% of $100 = $5.00||24% of $100 = $24 0FF|
BUT on Essential Rewards, the savings don’t stop there! After you have purchased your $50 item for $38 instead of full price, THEN you get your “cash back” on your purchase in the form of 10, 20, or 25% (based on the length of your enrollment) in rewards points. Still more than you just got back from Target.
Personal example: I’ve been on Essential Rewards for over 24 months, so I earn 25%, and on average, I am awarded 75-80 points with each Essential Rewards order. Those points spend DOLLAR FOR DOLLAR on hundreds of full-size products, so it’s like having a Young Living store-credit gift card in my pocket at all times! I save my points to splurge on my Savvy Minerals makeup, a product that I’ve been wanting to try, or to use in an “emergency” when I run out of an oil or supplement that I need to replace in between ER orders.
But wait…there’s more!
On Essential Rewards, you also receive a loyalty gift at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months…EVERY YEAR! (WHOOP…WHO DOES THAT?!)
Obviously, becoming an Essential Rewards member has tremendous advantages not only to other subscription services, but even over placing random monthly orders. Sure, you can do that, and you are more than welcome to! But being an Essential Rewards member ensures that you get to enjoy all those extra freebies and rewards points for those free shopping sprees that we all love so much. Just ask any Young Living member who’s ever needed a little retail therapy the day after returning home to reality after the International Grand Convention. 😉
