iHerb Rewards Program
Rewards Program Period
The Rewards Program is on-going and participation is subject to the terms and conditions set forth herein (“Rewards Program Period”).
The Rewards Program is open only to iHerb customers who are at least eighteen (18) years of age or older at the time of participation. This Rewards Program is void where prohibited or restricted by law. Your participation in the Rewards Program and use of Your Rewards Link and Rewards Code (as each is defined below), constitutes your full and unconditional agreement to the terms set forth in this Agreement, and iHerb’s decisions and interpretations, which are final and binding in all matters related to the Rewards Program.
General Rewards Program Information
Subject to the above eligibility requirements, You may participate in the Rewards Program when You purchase products offered for sale on the Site. When You complete Your first order, You will be enrolled in this Rewards Program and be deemed a participant in the Rewards Program in order to receive credits towards Your future iHerb purchases (“Rewards Credits”).
Rewards Credits earned under this Rewards Program can only be used by You towards Your future purchases made on the Site or can be redeemed for cash after reaching a certain threshold as indicated in the Rewards FAQs.
Once enrolled, You will receive a customized link (“Rewards Link”) as well as a special code (“Rewards Code”). Both the Rewards Link and Rewards Code will be associated with Your account.
You can receive Rewards Credits when new and existing customers that You refer to iHerb (“Referred Customer”) place qualifying orders using Your Rewards Link or Rewards Code.
Earning Rewards Credits
You can refer potential Referred Customers through Your Rewards Link by:
- Going to your favorite product, category page, or creating a shopping cart of Your favorite products. Next, click on the “Share” button on the top-right corner to share your Rewards Link, or
- Going to Your order history and clicking on the “Share” button for each order to share with others.
You may also earn Rewards Credits if a Referred Customer enters Your Rewards Code at checkout.
Once a Referred Customer clicks on Your Rewards Link, they will have seven (7) days to complete their order. You can earn Rewards Credits for qualifying orders that will be applied to Your account in accordance with the Rewards Program Accounting and Payment Information section listed below.
You may receive a (i) five dollar USD ($5 USD) Rewards Credit for any orders placed by a Referred Customer for products sold on the Site or an additional percentage or dollar credit in the event that iHerb, at its sole discretion, decides to run a special promotional program from time to time.
What Rewards Credits Can Be Used For
iHerb lets You use Your Rewards Credits in a couple of different ways to give You greater flexibility. Your Rewards Credits will automatically apply to Your future orders and will appear in Your shopping cart when signing into Your iHerb account. If You have Rewards Credits remaining at the end of each month above a certain threshold, You may be eligible to cash them out. You can find more information on the cash-out process in the Rewards FAQs. Rewards Credits cannot be used towards any shipping costs, sales taxes, or other similar charges.
Subject to the below restrictions, there are no limitations to the amount of Rewards Credits that you can receive. However, You may use only one account per person and no more than five (5) customer accounts per household can participate in this Rewards Program.
iHerb will track orders that qualify under this Rewards Program and may make those tracked orders available to You for up to three (3) months.
For the purposes of determining the participant that will receive Rewards Credits for each qualifying Referred Customer order, iHerb will look to the Rewards Link or Rewards Code that was last used when finalizing such Referred Customer order.
iHerb reserves the right to pause or block your participation in the Rewards Program, as well as reduce or adjust any Reward Credits if iHerb determines in its sole discretion that the participant is in violation of any of the terms of this Agreement, or is in any way abusing iHerb’s Rewards Program. Paused accounts will be unable to use or earn Rewards Credit. If Your account is blocked, Your Rewards Link and Rewards Code will not earn Rewards Credits and all pending and available Rewards Credits will be zeroed out.
Rewards Program Accounting and Payment Information
The actual amount of any earned Rewards Credit will be calculated based on a percentage of the total net purchase price of the qualifying products ordered by a Referred Customer.
Rewards Credits will generally be posted to Your account within thirty-five (35) days following the qualifying transaction which is completed by a Referred Customer (“Pending Credit”).
After the 35-day period referenced above, Pending Credits will be available in Your account to be applied to future purchases (“Available Credit”). Available Credit expires one hundred-eighty (180) days after posting to Your account. The 180-day expiration period resets when You earn new Rewards Credits during this time period.
Once an Available Credit has been used, that amount will be deducted from Your account (“Used Credit”).
Any Pending Credit or Available Credit may be adjusted accordingly in the event that a Referred Customer subsequently returns or refuses a previously placed order (“Cancelled Credit”), for technical errors, or corrections.
If You meet or exceed the minimum thresholds, You may elect to cash out Your Rewards Credits and receive payment. iHerb partners with Hyperwallet (powered by PayPal) to cash out Rewards Credits if supported by your country. See the Rewards FAQ for the list of countries that Hyperwallet currently supports. Payment will be delivered within fifteen (15) business days after the participant elects to cash out, and up to thirty (30) business days for participants in countries not supported by Hyperwallet. Any Rewards Credits in a participant’s account that is below the required cash out threshold will be rolled over to the next month subject to the terms above.
You will be responsible for any and all tax liability arising from any Rewards Credits you accumulate under the Rewards Program when you accumulate six hundred dollars ($600) or more in a year, regardless of country. iHerb is obligated by United States federal law to obtain tax information from Rewards Program participants who are United States citizens or United States residents (W-9) and from Rewards Program participants who are not United States citizens or residents but whose businesses are taxable in the United States (W8-ECI). Upon creating an account with iHerb’s partner, Hyperwallet (powered by PayPal), users will be asked to submit the appropriate tax form. If iHerb believes You are a Rewards Program participant from whom iHerb is obligated to obtain tax information and You do not provide this information upon request, iHerb reserves the right to withhold your Rewards Credits cash out until You provide this information or otherwise satisfy iHerb that You are not a person from whom iHerb is required to obtain tax information. For US citizens or residents, information about submitting tax information is also available on Hyperwallet (powered by PayPal). For limited countries not supported by Hyperwallet, please send tax forms (W-8 BEN for individuals, W-8 BEN-E for businesses) to [email protected].
General Rewards Program Restrictions

Applicable Law; Jurisdiction; Individual Arbitration; Waiver of Jury Trial; and Class Waiver:
All questions concerning the construction, validity, enforcement and interpretation of this Agreement shall be governed by and construed in accordance with the domestic laws of the State of California, without giving effect to any choice of law or conflict of law.
iHerb and You (collectively the “Parties” and individually a “Party”) further agree that the following agreement to arbitrate is part of an agreement made in interstate commerce and is governed by the Federal Arbitration Act (“FAA”), 9 U.S.C. §§ 1-16, and that on questions of the constructive, validity, enforcement, or interpretation of the agreement to arbitrate, the FAA shall control. You and iHerb Entities agree to arbitrate, on an individual basis, any controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or in any way related to this Agreement, including but not limited to claims based on contract, tort, negligence, statutory or regulatory provisions. It is expressly intended that the iHerb shall have the ability to enforce this arbitration agreement. EACH PARTY IS GIVING UP (WAIVING) ITS RIGHT TO SUE IN COURT AND TO HAVE ANY CONTROVERSY, CLAIM OR DISPUTE HEARD BY A JUDGE OR JURY.
YOU AND IHERB ENTITIES EXPRESSLY AGREE TO ARBITRATE ANY CONTROVERSY, CLAIM OR DISPUTE ARISING OUT OF OR IN ANY WAY RELATED TO THIS AGREEMENT. THIS AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATE ALSO APPLIES TO THRESHOLD ARBITRABILITY ISSUES, INCLUDING ISSUES RELATED TO WHETHER THE AGREEMENT IS UNCONSCIONABLE OR ILLUSORY AND ANY DEFENSE TO ARBITRATION.
THE PARTIES ALSO AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT IN YOUR AND OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, NOT AS A CLASS, PURPORTED CLASS, COLLECTIVE, OR OTHER REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE OR JOIN MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE, COLLECTIVE, OR CLASS PROCEEDING. IF ANY PORTION OF THIS CLASS WAIVER PROVISION IS HELD INVALID OR UNENFORCEABLE, IT SHALL NOT BE SEVERED, AND THE ENTIRE AGREEMENT TO ARBITRATION SHALL BE UNENFORCEABLE.
The mutual promise by you and iHerb Entities to arbitrate these disputes, and to do so on an individual basis, rather than to litigate before the courts or other bodies, provides the mutual consideration for this agreement to arbitrate.
Either Party may exercise the right to arbitrate by providing the other Party with written notice of any and all claims forming the basis of such right in sufficient detail to inform the other Party of the substance of such claims, and a demand to arbitrate those claims. In no event shall the request for arbitration be made after the date when institution of legal or equitable proceedings based on such claims would be barred by the applicable statute of limitations.
Unless you and iHerb otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside by a single neutral arbitrator agreed to by the Parties or, if one cannot be agreed upon, pursuant to the then-current American Arbitration Association’s (“AAA”)_Consumer Arbitration Rules. Arbitration shall be in accordance with the then- current AAA Consumer Arbitration Rules (available online at www.adr.org.) or, if those rules are no longer available, the applicable rules selected by the arbitrator; provided, however, that no rules permitting class, collective, or other representative arbitrations shall be used. In the event of any conflict between this agreement to arbitrate and the rules governing the arbitration, the terms of this agreement to arbitrate shall control.
The Parties are entitled to representation by an attorney or other representative of their choosing, and at their own costs. Each Party shall pay its own attorney fees. The parties agree to abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator; provided, however, that the arbitrator shall not have the authority to award punitive or exemplary damages or to issue injunctive or other equitable relief. The arbitrator shall issue the award in writing and therein state the essential findings and conclusions on which the award is based. Judgment on the award may be entered in any court having jurisdiction thereof.
Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules.
You may not assign this Agreement, by operation of law or otherwise, without our prior written consent. Subject to that restriction, this Agreement will be binding on, inure to the benefit of and be enforceable against the parties and their respective successors and assigns.
The failure of iHerb to enforce your strict performance of any term of this Agreement will not constitute a waiver of such term and will not be considered a waiver or limit that party's right thereafter to insist upon strict adherence to that term or any other term of this Agreement. You agree that regardless of any statute or law to the contrary, any claim or cause of action arising from or relating to the use of the Site or this Agreement must be filed within one (1) year after such claim or cause of action arose or such claim or cause of action will be permanently barred. The "Liability Disclaimer" provisions of this Agreement are for the benefit of iHerb Entities as defined herein, and each of these individuals or entities shall have the right to assert and enforce these provisions directly against your on its own behalf.
