The BEST thing about Young Living is that it offers every single one of us help and encouragement on our health journeys. And we are ALL on a health journey, whether we know it or not. Some of us are just getting started and trying to figure out where to go next, and some of us have been working on our wellness for a while.
For many of you, getting started with the Premium Starter Kit was a HUGE step! An AWESOME and huge step! I know it certainly was for me. But it is just the beginning! There is so much more to YL than JUST the starter kit.
Make sure you’re never without your must-have Young Living products! Essential Rewards (ER) allows wholesale members to earn points on their monthly auto-ship orders that can later be redeemed for FREE PRODUCTS!
So How Do You Take Advantage Of The YL Lifestyle Without Breaking The Bank?
Two words: Essential Rewards.
Let’s first talk about what Essential Rewards is!
Essential Rewards is your monthly wellness subscription box! Each month, you customize a box of wellness goodies according to what YOU want. It’s even better than those other monthly subscription boxes because it is customizable. You can now use your Premium Starter Kit (PSK) as your very first ER order!
Now You Might Be Asking, How Is This Going To SAVE Me Money And Why The Heck Would I Want To Sign Up For Essential Rewards?
Let me break it down!
First, you receive free points. When you’re on the ER program, you’ll get points BACK on all of your rewards purchases.
Month 1-3 receive 10% back in ER points.
Month 4-24 receive 20% back in ER points.
Month 25+ receive 25% back in ER points.
% value is calculated from the PV total. 20% on a 100 PV order = $20 back in ER points.
Your ER order is a gift in and of itself. Then you get to use your rewards point to give yourself another gift, and another, and another… and aren’t the best gifts the ones you pick out yourself?? 🙂 After you have been on ER for two consecutive months you are able to cash in your points to redeem free goodies in your third month!
The SECOND Reason To Join ER Is Because YL Is Going To Send You Loyalty Gifts* Every 3 Months For The First Year Then Once A Year Thereafter.
At 3 months, you’ll be gifted a 5 ml bottle of Peppermint Vitality oil!
At 6 months, you get a free 5 ml bottle of Thieves Vitality!
At 9 months, you get the amazing 15 ml Tea Tree!!
And at 12 months, you’ll get an exclusive, 5 ml Loyalty Blend specially formulated by Gary Young!
Every year after that, you will receive a new loyalty blend created just for ER members.
The THIRD Reason To Be On Essential Rewards Is That When You’re On ER, You Have Access Yo EXCLUSIVE Kits That Are Only Available On ER.
When you’re on ER, you can get the Everyday Oils, Thieves, and NingXia Red Essential Rewards kit at an even bigger discount!!
We drink NR EVERY. DAY. So this is the best way to order it. We also can’t get enough Thieves.
These discounted kits are ONLY available when purchasing through ER. It’s a bonus for being on Essential Rewards.
How Do I Order On ER?
All you have to do to enroll in ER is to log into your virtual office and click on “Essential Rewards” on the left-hand side of your screen. From there, the website will walk you through how to enroll. You can also call Customer Service at 1-800-371-3515 and they’ll set it up for you. Your third option is to hop on the live chat through the website and do it that way!
The monthly minimum requirement for an Essential Rewards order is 50 PV, or about $50. The majority of the consumable items are the same number of PV points as the dollar amount, but not all. Some non-consumable items like diffusers have fewer PV points, but you can still buy them on ER. The point is, pay attention to how many PV points are in your cart not the dollar total amount of your order. You need 50 PV.
You would probably (and by probably, I mean… most definitely) be spending that $50 somewhere else like the grocery store or Target on things like cleaning products, vitamins, shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste, laundry detergent, and more. You have to buy those things anyway! Why not buy them from Young Living where you KNOW the products are safe and free of harmful chemicals? We call this transfer buying. You’re transferring your dollars from the grocery store to Young Living. You’re getting up to 25% back in points while buying from YL and supporting a bunch of families and their small businesses in the process!
YOU will pick your order date! So maybe you know you get paid on the 15th of every month, so you want to schedule your date for the 16th! You have the option of changing your date each month. Want to order earlier than the 16th? No problem. It’s flexible, just change your shipping date!
Then, load up your ER cart with whatever you want that month. Each month, you have until midnight of your order processing date to customize your box of wellness goodies!
What Is PV Assistant?
While you’re logged into your Virtual Office, get your PV assistant set up! PV assistant is basically a backup cart in the event that an item goes out of stock and your monthly ER order drops below 50 PV. If your order processes below 50 PV for the month, you will start back at month 1, earning 10% back.
You can set your PV assistant up to keep your order above whatever number you choose (at 50 PV or above).
I recommend setting your PV assistant minimum amount to at least 100 PV for a few reasons.
1) Get FREE shipping for ordering 100 PV.
2) When you commit to 100 PV you are supporting your health even more.
3) 100 PV on ER ensures you receive every single penny from bonuses and commissions when you have members underneath you ordering.
Also, YL will select the items that appear FIRST on your list. So I recommend choosing less expensive items first to list on the PV Assistant! YL has MANY items under $15!
PV Assistant will SAVE YO BOOTY if something goes out of stock at the last minute. It’s a lifesaver! Use it. Love it!
How Do I Redeem My Points?
Rewards points can not be redeemed through an ER order. You will have to place a Shop order to cash in your points.
When you go to check out, there will be an option to redeem your ER points! You can use your points on products that have a PV amount that is equal to the dollar value of the product (again, PV points usually equal the dollar amount, but not always).
One awesome thing is that you can split payment! You need to have enough points to cover a product but you can use points to pay for some of your products and put the rest on a credit card or use PayPal.
Do I Have To Sign My Life Away?
Great question! No! You do NOT have to sign your life away to join the ER program.
In fact, you can cancel ANYTIME with NO penalty whatsoever. I don’t know about you, but I was SUPER relieved when I found this out. The last thing I wanted was to feel like I was locked into something.
If you want to (although I can’t think of a single reason you would want to) cancel, all you have to do is give Customer Service a ring or jump on the live chat and you can cancel. You’re NOT STUCK at all.
If you’re going to be ordering ANYTHING at all from YL, I recommend that you do it on ER and at least get the points! Why not? If you decide it’s not for you, feel free to cancel, but I think you’re gonna love it!
And IF All Of That Wasn’t Enough, YL Has One More Amazing Things For Us Every Single Month.
Every. Single. Month. Young Living offers us different promotions and they are always AMAZING! They usually have a theme or correspond to the season, but they ALWAYS add HUGE extra value to our order.
There are now FOUR different tiers at which you can qualify for free shipping and these extra promotional freebies: 100 PV, 190 PV, 250 PV and 300 PV. And as you can guess, each tier gets you even more freebies!
