When I tell someone their annual membership with doTERRA is free they have a hard time believing me.
We are so programmed to believe there is a catch with everything.
In this case, it is actually true.
The first year of membership with doTERRA costs $35. This cost covers your access to doTERRA for wholesale prices, specials and promotions and provides a free wellness consultation and immediate access to purchase products at wholesale discounts of 25%-50% off retail. This part of the $35 is valued at $25. The remaining $10 goes towards your welcome kit packet that includes a catalog of all the doTERRA products, information on the company and details on maximizing your membership. It also covers your account setup and support on using your products safely.
The initial fee of $35 can be waived if you purchase an enrollment kit. Those kits vary in price and are special collections of oils commonly used by most people. Purchasing an enrollment kit is the best value when you are new to doTERRA as you not only waive the $35 membership fee but you also get a significant discount on your first set of oils and products.
In the majority of cases an enrollment kit is perfect for a new user. Not only are you saving significantly but you’re getting a nice foundation to start using oils immediately and have adequate variety for a multitude of things you will need and use.
The great thing about doTERRA is they understand we are not all one-size-fits-all.
If someone doesn’t want an enrollment kit but would rather customize their selection of products, the option of purchasing the initial enrollment fee and adding on the products of your choice is available.
Free Membership Renewal
When your membership comes up for renewal the cost is $25. With that renewal you will receive a free bottle of 15ml Peppermint valued at $27.33. (Note, there was a price reduction on Peppermint from his former cost of $27.50) With a wholesale membership, all doTERRA oils and products are at least 25% off retail prices. There are other ways to increase the savings of those products that I describe in other posts.
So, this all works out to just over 52% savings on what it is costing you to get the oils provided by the 2018 #1 global leader in essential oils….
Wholesale membership of $25
Membership works like a big-box membership store like Amazon, Sam’s Club, Costco, BJ’s, etc.
You renew your membership each year and have access to the special pricing and offers of that merchant
By the way, think about this for a minute –
Amazon’s Prime Membership is $119 a year and you don’t get anything back as a price reduction or a free product for being their customer. In fact they raised their price from $99 to $119 earlier this year too.
Sam’s Club, Costco and BJ’s are all around $50 per year to renew and again you do not get a discount or free product when you renew
So why would you buy essential oils and natural products from these other places? You’re paying way more for their membership and taking a chance of not having “fresh” or guaranteed oils and products.
doTERRA refunds your wholesale membership cost by sending you a 15ml bottle of Peppermint valued at $27.33.
Total cost before savings: $52.33
Total cost after savings applied: $27.33
Total cost to you: $25
Here is a screenshot of what that looks when you renew your wholesale membership and are on the doTERRA Loyalty Rewards Program.
In the screenshot above, the person’s account is renewing for their membership so the renewal fee of $25 is applied. The free bottle of Peppermint automatically appears.
This person also donates $1 each Loyalty Rewards Order for the pay-it-forward support activities doTERRA funds through their Helping Hands Foundation. See post from May 25, 2018 titled, “Paying It Forward.”
Finally, this person participates in the Loyalty Rewards Program and as a result is also receiving the free product of the month. That product could be any oil or product and is revealed the first of every month. The product of the month is usually a product priced at least $10 and usually higher.
The savings are for real.
You can enjoy excellent oils and natural products with significant savings.
Free is for real.
