Young Living Essential Rewards

Essential Rewards come into play for those of you who have a wholesale account. You are not required to sell or distribute anything to reap the benefits of an Essential Rewards membership. See how to sign up.

What are Essential Rewards?

Essential Rewards (ER) is an autoship program where you purchase 50 PV (PV actually stands for PERSONAL VOLUME, however, for this to make more sense, in this post I am referring to PV as point value) every month. Usually, the Point Value is dollar for dollar in price value, but not always. Look at the PV of each product you are purchasing to make sure your PV (not necessarily amount spent) equals 50 every month.

With the Essential Rewards program, you will earn points toward future product purchases. This program rewards you for every autoship purchase of 50 PV or more. You are allowed ONE Essential Rewards autoship purchase per month, but can make as many regular orders as you wish. (Regular orders do not accumulate ER points.)

How do I earn points?

Each month on the Essential Rewards program gets you a certain amount of points – a percentage of what you purchase back in points that you can cash in at a later time to buy other wonderful Young Living products.

  • In the first six months (months 1 – 6), you get 10% back in ER point credits.
  • In the next six months (months 7 – 12), you get 15% back in ER point credits.
  • In every month after, beginning with month 13, you get 20% back in ER point credits.

That can add up fairly quickly, especially if you are taking advantage of the monthly promos, and even more quickly once you hit month 7. Your points begin to accumulate as soon as your order ships, and you can view your ER points every time you log in to your Virtual Office; they are right there on your main page.

How do I get an ER Account?

If you are just now joining Young Living, you can start on the ER autoship program right now! See how to join here, and then after selecting your Starter Kit, below it you will see Essential Rewards. In addition to the Starter Kit, you need to choose one of the Essential Rewards Kits and your autoship date.

If you are already a YL Wholesale Member, and want to join ER, you can sign up one of two ways. You do NOT have to purchase an Essential Rewards kit, ever, unless you want the products that come in them. {For example, the NingXia Red Essential Rewards kit is the absolute cheapest way to purchase NingXia Red.} If your account will not set up without one, add one, then add the products you want, and then delete the kit.

  • Online through your Virtual Office: This is where you purchase your YL products. Simply log in to your account, click “Essential Rewards” in the left-hand column, and follow the instructions.
  • Or, call YL at 1-800-371-2928.

Do I have to order the same things every single month?

No! This is the beauty of the ER program. You can change what you order every. single. month. The only “minimum” you have to reach is 50 PV. There are NO other requirements at all! This is a fantastic way to build your oil supply and try new oils and products.

It is super-easy to change your orders each month. Simply log in to Virtual Office, click on Essential Rewards in the left-hand corner, click the little “Edit” button, the “Add Products” tab, and the “Add Products” or “Remove Products” button to get your cart just like you want it. When you are finished, click the “Save Essential Rewards” button at the bottom.  Follow all the steps for shipping & payment and you’re done.

How do I redeem my points?

After two consecutive months in the program, you can redeem your points by calling Young Living customer support or through your Virtual Office.

When redeeming your points, pay careful attention to the item or items’ POINT VALUE, not price. As I mentioned above, most oils have a dollar-for-dollar price-to-point amount, but not all. If you are wondering how much point value you have to “spend,” here is an example:

  • If you have 100 points in your account, you can redeem them for any product with a PV value up to 100 PV.
  • OR if you have 100 points in your account, you can redeem them for multiple products that have a TOTAL PV of up to 100.
  • All ER points redemption must be placed via “Quick Order.” You cannot use these on your Essential Rewards order.

When redeeming your points, please be aware that they do not cover tax or shipping.

I’m in the ER program, and I’ve decided I don’t want it any longer. What happens now?

If you decide the ER program is not a good fit for you, that’s ok! Before you cancel, just make sure to cash in any accumulated ER points because once you cancel, they are gone. Use up those points, and then call YL customer service to cancel, with no penalties.
