Rewards Credits

  • How are Rewards Credits earned through referral purchases calculated?

    When Your friends or Your family make a qualifying purchase through Your Rewards Link or manually enter your Rewards Code at checkout, You will earn five US Dollars ($5 USD) in Rewards Credits for each of their orders. Of course, be on the lookout for other great Rewards offers, like Super Rewards that iHerb may run periodically.

    Our newly revamped Super Rewards offer allows you to earn an additional 10% commission on any iHerb Brand products. This means you can earn more than $5 Rewards Credit on every referral purchase made. For example, if your friend made a $100 purchase when shopping via your Rewards link and $50 of your friend’s order is iHerb Brand products, you will get $5 from that referral purchase + an additional $5 (10% of the $50) from the Super Rewards offer.

    You can earn $1.00 in Rewards Credit for each eligible review submitted on or after October 1, 2020, whether that review is positive or negative.

    Similarly, you can earn $0.10 Rewards Credit for each eligible helpful vote that You receive on or after October 1, 2020 from other customers on Your answer to a posted question, up to a maximum of $100 in Rewards Credits per answer.
