Can you believe it! I have a 10% discount now! I'm so excited.. I really depended on that 15% discount prior to the change and I'm happy that I'm atleast back to 10%!!! So I guess it isn't impossible I also had more then half the points needed when the new change happened, plus all the extra bonus points in the past month & the orders I have placed with all the new CHA stuff! I wonder if ill ever make it to 50,000 maybe just maybe

Anyone else close to getting 10% or have you gotten back there yet?

Congrats! I had 10% before and I've managed to get to 5%. I think that's as far as I'll get.

Yea I had the 15%'for about a month right before the change! And after the change I was sooo PO I didn't think I would ever get to 10% let alone 15% but I did and I'm happier then ever because I got there before the bulk of the CHA releases! That was the main reason I was so upset about the change to begin with was because my list is forever long and that discount helps alot! Other then me shopping here what really helped me get to the 10 was those bonus points I got from twopeas and all the points I got during the CHA event! Hoping something like happens again so I can get my 15 back, the hard part now is gonna be having to keep it for more then a year I don't know if its possible will see!

Congrats!

I had just hit the 15% discount range about a month or so before they changed everything. Knocked me back to 5%. I still have about 800+ points just to get to the 5% with specials.

It's made me think before filling up my cart lately. I'm not sure that I'll get to the 10%. I may get close, then I'll have prior purchases expiring & it will knock me back down.

This is helping me, though. I don't like having to itemize my non-taxed on-line purchases at tax time because that number looks bad when DH sees it as one lump sum. So if I reduce my on-line spending here, that's less that I will need to claim.

I was at 10% before the change and am only at 5% now which stinks because I spend a lot of money here. I'm only 16,492 points so I'm only just past the half way mark to get to 10% off.

Do they ever take your points away. Meaning you early yearly and then start over the next calendar year?

Yes, they don't wipe all your points away at once, but they do expire in one year from the date you earned them so say i just earned 100 on 1/31/13 on 1/31/14 they will expire and my points will then be 100 less! Thats the one thing that really stinks about the change is that 50,000 points which equals 15% is a heck of a lot of points.. Even with the bonus points monthly its still very impossible for some people to reach and say a person where to a reach it .. It expires in a year! So if it took you 364 days to earn that 50,000 the next day they will be gone! I personally think that the new goal is a tad extreme to maintain! If we where able to reach it without the points expiring then I think it's a little more realistic!

I think the bottom line is that 2 Peas could afford to give the discounts they were giving in the past. I wonder if ANYONE still has the 15% discount anymore.

It may just be the cost of having free daily Garden Girl videos.

Congrats!

I had just got to 10%, used it once, and a couple days later the change to the program was made. Now I am not even to 5%.

I'm still not sure how this whole thing works. I was at 6971 a few days ago and now I am at 7371. Not sure where that 400 points came from. I do post some but not a ton. Plus I haven't uploaded a LO since the CHA challenge.

I got back to 10% during all of the CHA chatter and such. I agree it was nice to have that before all of the new CHA releases hit the shop and I hope we see more opportunities to earn points like that on a regular basis.

How could I find out where I am (in terms of point/status progress)? I browsed around, and I can't figure it out. Can someone let me know? Thanks!

To see your points just hover over the STORE tab up in the header and then click on customer loyalty program. It will show you how many you have and what the different levels are now.

Yes I know it is only jan. that's why I'm pretty sure I know ill get back to 15% soon enough.. If its not from shopping then defiantly from earning extra points for being active! I made sure during the CHA to get ever single point I could have lol! & when feb. 1st comes I will be posting like crazy for the extra 300 points! During CHA I posted the 60 comments with in one day lol.. It's a fun challenge to me to see how many points I can earn! I'm almost at 31,000 and when the change happened in the beginning of the month I only had about 15,000! So needless to say if I keep up this earning I will be at 50,000 in no time! I'm excited to see what kind of bonus coupons and other things we receive through out the year!

Jennifer check your points after each post that you make today too. I did the 60 comments on the first day of CHA chatter but I think the monthly posting points are separate from that because I've still been getting points for each post I make on the boards since then. Uploads too.

Hooray! Enjoy!

The loyalty program and the budget for Garden Girl videos are unrelated. You definitely help support the education we provide here though by shopping from the products they relate and recommend below their projects and videos.

Yea I know I realized that just the other day between those extra points and the recent $81 order I placed it put me right to 30,099 points! When I noticed the other day that I was still earning points I did my 60 posts in a matter of a few hours because I wanted to place another order for new items in the shop and I knew that I was gonna be getting to 30,000 so I was soo excited and I stayed up late commenting on every post I could think of lol.. Trying to find 60 different post that you can reply to isn't that easy let alone having to type all the answers and whatever else.. Lol I didn't wanna just put one word answers or comments or create a bunch of different threads I don't think that's far & or you shouldn't be able to earn points like that by cheating lol.. So I read thread after thread and added my two cents to the subjects I liked lol.. I need a life gotta get that discount!!!
