We've recently made improvements to our Making S¢ents Rewards program. Now it makes even more scents (literally) for you to shop at Motor City Candleworks.
For every dollar you spend at our online site, you will earn a certain number of points. The number of points you get varies with each product, and is stated right next to the retail price on every page. Some points will actually be worth equal to or more than the retail value of the product. Make sure you look out for those, and we'll post them on our sales and special page.
Next time you make a purchase, go to your account page, sign in, and scroll down to the link to your Making S¢ents Rewards Program. There you will see how many points you have earned. To redeem points, just fill in the box with the number of points you want to apply to your purchase, and you will now have the value of those points applied to your account. They will automatically be credited in cash to your next purchase.
So, how do these points accrue? Most items for sale show the number of points earned when you buy that item right under the price. What are the points worth? Every point corresponds to a penny. Let's say you buy an item that retails at $10.00. That item may say that you earn 300 points when you purchase it. If you do purchase it, you will now have 300 points which you can apply to your next purchase, and that will become a $3.00 (or 300 pennies) credit off the total of that next purchase. Points vary on every item. Most items have points worth at least 5% or more of the item's retail value. Some items have points equal to the actual value of the item, and sometimes (incredibly!) we even offer points valued in excess of the retail value of the item your are purchasing.
You can check your point balance in your "My Account" section. Just look for the link under the "Other Features" heading which is called, "Making S¢ents Rewards Program."
If this sounds too good to be true, of course we have a few rules, too. But they're simple. The number one rule is points don't last forever. When you make a purchase, your points on the purchase become active and you can use them once the order ships. From that time, the points are good for 121 days. If you don't use them in that time, they expire. Hey, that's longer than the expiration date on a loaf of bread! The oldest points you have will be used first.
As we said before, the points you earn are credited to your account when your order ships. When you place your next order, redeem as many points as you need before completing your order. Again, go to your "My Account" section and click on the "Making S¢ents Rewards Program" link. Choose how many points you want to redeem. 100 points are worth $1.00. Points may be redeemed in multiples of 100. The points you redeemed will show up in your shopping cart when you get to the checkout section.
That's all there is to it. With every purchase, you're earning cents towards your next purchase. It's like getting a discount every time you shop. Make sure you opt-in to receive our newsletter so you can see what items are currently being featured with extra points. You can join our mailing list by scrolling to the bottom of almost any page and entering your email address where it asks for it. There's nothing else to do. You don't have to sign up... you're earning points with every purchase automatically.
