You are not required to purchase products monthly if you have your own doTERRA account. Having your own doTERRA account is like having a Costco or Sam’s Club type of an account. You purchase products whenever you wish. The price to join is only $35 for the first year and gets you access to wholesale pricing at 25% off retail (optional yearly renewals are only $25 and come with a free bottle of peppermint). If you purchase 50PV each month you accrue points that you can redeem for free products and can essentially purchase everything below wholesale, but you are not required to purchase monthly. Taking part in the monthly loyalty rewards program is completely optional.
If you want to take advantage of the monthly loyalty rewards program (LRP), you get rewarded each time you shop. It’s like going to Target to get your month’s worth of products and getting a gift card on your way out to use next time you are ready to shop. With the doTERRA Loyalty Rewards Program you accrue points that you can then redeem for free products. The program is totally optional and can be cancelled at any time.
