Rewards Points



It seems that some of our customers are having a bit of trouble using their rewards points that have accumulated, so we wanted to release a blog on how to use them.  First off, when you put a product in your cart it not only shows how much $ it would take to pay for the order, but it also shows how many points it would take to pay for that order as well.  We know that this is a bit confusing but please make a note that when you see the rewards points total in the cart, that is not how many points you have but rather how many points you would need to cover the order. 

As far as using the points that you do have......when you have your cart ready to go and you click "proceed to checkout", that will take you to the check out page where you will enter your address, shipping method, payment method, etc.  This is where you will have the option to cash in your points toward your order.  If you will refer to the screenshot you will see that the "Payment Method" box is a drop down menu where you can select credit, paypal, etc.  You will see an option for "reward points", select this option and it will show you your available points with an "apply" button.  Click the apply button and it will apply your points toward your order, then you can select credit or paypal to pay for the remaining balance, if there is a remaining balance.  We hope this helps!


We also wanted to make sure you all knew all of the details of how the reward point system works.  Here are the details....
