How I Bought $300 Worth of Young Living Products for FREE! (hint: you can do it, too!)

Oh I just love free stuff… especially when it’s stuff that I get to PICK OUT!

300 Dollars of Young Living for Free

Are you wondering how I was able to pick out $300 in products this last month and get it all FOR FREE??  Two words: Essential Rewards.

Young Living Essential Rewards Program

Young Living has a phenomenal rewards program for loyal members called Essential Rewards.  You can read all about it here.

In a nutshell, you earn credits for free products on all your monthly Essential Rewards (ER) orders!  When you have been in this program over a year, you earn 20% back in Essential Rewards points on your ER orders!! (Months 1-6 you earn 10%, months 7-12 you earn 15%, months 13+ you earn 20%)

This means that for every $100 I spend, I am currently earning $20 back.  In addition, some of the monthly promotions include ADDITIONAL rewards points, so some months, I am earning up to 30% back in ER points!

Cash ’em In!

ER points can then be used just like cash to buy products (a few exclusions apply).  I love having a stash of ER points, especially if something I need is out of stock.  As soon as it comes back in, I can immediately purchase it with my points instead of waiting to add it to my monthly Essential Rewards order.  You only need to pay for shipping when you spend your points!  Also, you can cash in your points from your new Virtual Office, which is so nice.

You Can Do It, Too!

To start earning free product credits, you simply need to have a wholesale account and sign up for Young Living’s Essential Rewards program.  I have earned so much free product this way (well over the $300 I just redeemed!), and you can too!!  Don’t forget that when you combine your monthly ER order with the monthly promotions, you can earn even more freebies.  :)

Why are Some Young Living Products Packed Like This?

Young Living Packing

Did you ever receive something in your Young Living order packed like the picture above and wonder what in the world the deal was??  I received several items like this before I finally found out!!

When your oils and products come packed in a resealable bag with a cardboard-looking sheet of something, here is why… those items are flammable, and they need to be packaged this way for shipping.  The cardboard-looking piece is actually an absorbent pad in the event that these flammable items would spill or leak during shipping.

I know this is not earth-shattering information, but now you know why some items are packed like this!

Two Ways to Earn Free Young Living Products!

2 Ways to Earn Free Young Living Products

Did you know there are TWO ways you can earn FREE Young Living products?  Yes!!  And you can combine them for even more benefit!

Way #1 – Young Living’s Monthly Promotions

Every month Young Living has a different monthly promotion, offering free products and bonuses when your order reaches certain minimums.  The minimum usually starts at 190PV, and the 190PV promotion is usually one or more free bottles of essential oil!  You can earn more product/bonuses if your order reaches 250PV and even more if it reaches 300PV.  (note – PV is typically the wholesale dollar value of the item, before tax and shipping)  Here is October 2014’s monthly promotion as an example:

October 2014 Monthly Young Living Promo

So when you are ordering, keep in mind those promotion levels (190PV, 250PV, and 300PV)!  There have been many times my orders have come to, say, 185PV… If I wasn’t paying attention, I would have missed the monthly promo!!  These are the times I add something small to my order (like a couple lip balms or a Thieves Waterless Hand Purifier) to get me to the next promotion level (190 PV in this case) so I can earn some free goodies.  :)

Way #2 – The Essential Rewards Program

The Essential Rewards Program is Young Living’s optional monthly autoship program.  This program is GREAT because you earn Essential Rewards points on your Essential Rewards orders, which can be redeemed on regular orders like cash!  (a few exclusions apply)  So with every Essential Rewards order you place, you are earning free product!!

Months 1-6 – Earn 10% back in Essential Rewards points

Months 7-12 – Earn 15% back in Essential Rewards points

Months 13+ – Earn 20% back in Essential Rewards points

You can read more in-depth about Young Living’s Essential Rewards program here.

Double Whammy!

If you are enrolled in the Essential Rewards (ER) program AND place an ER order of 190PV or more, not only will you be receiving ER points to redeem like cash, but you will also receive the FREE products from the monthly promo!

Let’s say you are earning 20% on your ER orders since you’ve been enrolled in the ER program over a year, and you place a 190PV ER order…

You will earn 38 ER points (20% of 190, equivalent to $38 wholesale) PLUS you will earn the monthly promo at the 190PV level, which is usually worth anywhere from $30-$60 retail!  If your order is higher, you will obviously earn even more ER points and potentially be eligible for more monthly promo items!

Bottom Line

The best way to earn the MOST FREE PRODUCT is to hit one of the promotional levels (190PV, 250PV, or 300PV) with your monthly Essential Rewards order – this will earn you the max amount of free product!!!

All About Young Living Essential Rewards!

You may have heard of Young Living’s Essential Rewards program and wondered exactly what it is… this post is for you!!  There’s even a video at the end showing you how to enroll and manage your order.

YL Essential Rewards Program

Fantastic Benefits Including FREE PRODUCT Credits!

Essential Rewards (ER) is Young Living’s monthly autoship program.  There is no cost to sign up for this program, and your order must be at least 50PV each month (50PV usually equates to $50 before tax and shipping).  ER is not required, but it does have some really great benefits:

1.  Earn free product credits on all your ER orders – 10% back during months 1-3, 20% back during months 4-24, and 25% back after 24 months.  I’ve gotten LOTS of free product this way.  :)
2.  Less expensive shipping
3.  Some ER kits are available that are not in the regular catalog, at even more discounted rates (the Thieves ER kit is an example)
4.  Free gifts from Young Living at 3,6, and 9 months, and a bottle of ‘Loyalty’ at 1 year!

You can change your order every month (and should, depending on what you need!), it just needs to be changed by midnight on your ER date and has to be at least 50PV.  So for instance, my date is the 2nd, so I always make sure my order looks how I want by midnight on the 2nd of each month.

Cancel Anytime

You can cancel ER at any time, but you do need to call in/live chat to cancel.  Simply emptying out the items in the ER order WILL NOT cancel your autoship!  They will just send you what you ordered the previous month!

When Should You Sign Up?

When you get to the point where you are ordering regularly and/or replacing products, you should really consider signing up for Essential Rewards.  If you are ordering at least $50 worth of products a month and aren’t on ER, you are missing out on earning FREE PRODUCT!

How to Sign Up

You must have a wholesale account/be a distributor (not a customer) to sign up for Essential Rewards.  If you don’t have a wholesale account yet, you can sign up here.  When you’re in your Virtual Office, simply click the ‘Essential Rewards’ link on the left.  Below is a video showing how to sign up and manage your order.

How to Redeem Your Essential Rewards Points

To redeem your Essential Rewards points for free product, you can do it from your Virtual Office.  Your points are evenly exchanged for the PV of an item.  The only thing you will need to pay is shipping!  Below is a video showing you how to redeem your Essential Rewards points.

If you have questions about this program, please don’t hesitate to get in touch!
