Essential RewardsEssential Rewards (ER) is a free program that allows you to earn points on your Young Living purchases. You must be signed up as an Independent Distributor to be eligible for Essential Rewards.

What You Earn

The points you earn are based on how long you are actively enrolled in the program, and they can be used to purchase Young Living products.

  • 0-6 Months – 10% of of the PV of each ER order.
  • 6-12 Months – 15% of the PV of each ER order.
  • 13+ Months – 20% of the PV of each ER order.

What does that mean for my savings?

Since you’re already saving 24% on all of your orders by meeting the purchase requirements of being a distributor, by signing up with Essential Rewards, your savings over retail will be instantly deeper. These savings will grow based on how long you are in the program.

  • 34% Total savings the first six months.
  • 39% Total savings the next six months.
  • 44% Total savings for the remainder of the time you remain in the program.

As you can see, the savings and value really add up!

How to Earn

Earn by signing up for Essential Rewards and buying the products you already do. It’s really that simple. Below are a few notes that might help answer any questions you might have.

  • In order to earn, you must be signed up as an Independent Distributor.
  • You must spend about $50 a month (plus tax & shipping). (50 PV)
  • If you wish to earn a commission check with all applicable bonuses, in addition to earning points, you must spend about $100 a month instead (plus tax & shipping). (100 PV)
  • There are some basic commissions that you are eligible for at the $50 level, but the $100 level opens you up to several bonuses, making it a much faster way to begin covering the cost of your ER orders.
  • Your monthly orders can be any combination of products that you wish—oils, cleaners, toiletries, supplements, etc. —so long as the PV value (it shows you on the order page) reaches the 50 or 100 level you wish to get to.
  • If you have a month where placing an order is an issue, simply call and place your ER account on hold for a month. You may use one of these grace periods per year, if needed.
  • If you decide that you would no longer like to be in the program, simply redeem your points and then cancel by calling customer service. If you cancel before redeeming your points, they will be lost.
  • There is no fee for cancelling.
  • You are never under any obligation to continue in the program.

That’s it! The moment your order is shipped, you have points! Once you have been in the program for two months, you can begin redeeming them and enjoying the fruits of your savings.

Remember, you must be signed up as an Independent Distributor in order to enroll in the Essential Rewards program. You can read more about that here.

Bottom line – if you want to save money on great products, you will want to enroll in the ER program!

Hi Amanda,
I have been looking into getting a YL membership for a few weeks now. I came accross your blog, and I am just wondering how much I can save and how much it would cost for the popular home kit, if I sign up through you as my supporter..
Thank you,
Jessica

Hi Jessica,
The kit that most people choose comes with a full kit of oils and several samples of other products. There is also a Thieves kit that includes a several household Thieves products (cleaner concentrate, foaming hand soap, Thieves oil, etc. ) along with some samples. Both kits run around $170 and also include literature to help get started using the products. When you sign up with a kit (doesn’t have to be the kits above), you automatically save 24% off of the regular price.

YL also offer an optional rewards program to members, called Essential Rewards, and if you enroll in that you immediately save an additional 10 percent of each ER order for your first three months and then it goes up to 20% and then finally 25% after 25 months in the program. ER savings are given as points to redeem and basically = $1 per point. ER is totally optional but definitely a good idea if you find that you enjoy the products because the points begin to add up fast.

I have been so stumped on trying to understand what PV, ER, etc…. But I am so glad I came across your blog and felt like reading it as well as the comments helped. I just ordered my starter kit last month but am so interested in how to sell to others, as well as understanding everything. Initially when I bought my starter kit I believe it said I had a large # of PV, but this month it wasn’t there. So I signed up for ER this month. Sorry for the ramble…anyhow I am curious as to what PV assistant is and also how I can find events near me to attend to better understand starting all of this. I have loved oils for a awhile now and am so glad I was blessed at Christmas to be able to finally get started. Thank you for your posts!
