Rewards Program Period
The Rewards Program is on-going and will continue until terminated in accordance with the terms and conditions set forth herein (“Rewards Program Period”).
The Rewards Program is open only to iHerb customers who are at least 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 Code or Rewards Link, constitutes your full and unconditional agreement to these Terms and Conditions 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 iHerb’s website or apps. 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 iHerb.com or an iHerb app and cannot be redeemed for cash. iHerb offers a different program which may provide for a cash payout. [To apply for our cash payout program (“Affiliate Program”) please visit: https://signup.performancehorizon.com/signup/en/iherb
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 linked to the participant’s account.
You will receive Rewards Credits for orders placed by a new and existing customers that you refer to iHerb by either using your Rewards Code or Rewards Link (“Referred Customer”).
In order to refer using your Rewards Link, you may either:
- Go to your favorite product, category page, or create a shopping cart of your favorite products. Next, you should click on the share button on the top-right corner to be able to share your custom Rewards Link, or
- Go to your order history and click on the share button for each order to share with others.
You may share your Rewards Code by advising your potential Referred Customers to use your Rewards Code in their shopping cart.
Once your Referred Customer places an order through your Rewards Link or provides us with your Rewards Code, and once such orders are completed, shipped, and paid, then you will earn Rewards Credits for such orders which will be applied to your account in accordance with the Rewards Program Accounting and Payment Information section listed below.
You may receive a (i) 5% Rewards Credit for any orders placed by a Referred Customer for products sold on the iHerb site, (ii) 10% Rewards Credit for any orders placed by a Referred Customer for iHerb’s house brands (which can be found at https://www.iherb.com/c/iherb-brands), (iii) or an additional percentage credit in the event that iHerb, at its sole discretion, decides to run a special promotional program from time to time.
Your Rewards Credits will automatically apply to your future orders and will appear in your shopping cart when signing into your iHerb account. Rewards Credits may only be used as credit for purchasing products and 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, only one account per person and up to 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 months.
For the purposes of determining the participant that will receive Rewards Credits for each Referred Customer order, iHerb will look to the Rewards Link or Rewards Code that was last used when finalizing such Referred Customer order.
Rewards Program Accounting and Payment Information
The percentage calculations for the purposes of calculating the actual Rewards Credit amount will be based on the total net purchase price of the products ordered by a Referred Customer.
Rewards Credits will generally be applied to your account 30 days following the applicable transaction which is completed by a Referred Customer (“Pending Credit”).
After the 30 day period referenced above, Pending Credits will be available in your account to be applied to future purchases (“Available Credit”). Available credit expires 180 days from when they become available in your account.
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”).
General Rewards Program Restrictions
iHerb reserves the right to invalidate Rewards Credits if it determines that such credits were improperly credited to your account, obtained fraudulently or in violation of these Terms and Conditions.
Rewards Credits do not constitute property, do not entitle you to a vested right or interest, and have no cash value. As such, Rewards Credits are not redeemable for cash and are not saleable, transferable or assignable for any reason.

iHerb assumes no liability for discrepancies, delays, omissions, inconsistencies or errors in the calculation and the crediting of the Rewards Credits.

The trademarks, service marks, trade names, and logos (collectively, "Marks") contained on the Site, including without limitation iHerb® are the sole property of iHerb. In addition all page headers, custom graphics and custom icons are Marks of iHerb. iHerb grants you a limited, non-exclusive, non-transferable, non-sublicensable, revocable license to access and use the Materials and Marks only in the manner permitted by iHerb for your personal and non-commercial use only (the “License”).

When used in this Agreement, the term "including" will be deemed to be followed by the words "without limitation".
Applicable Law; Jurisdiction; Dispute Resolution 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.
To the fullest extent permitted by law, you and iHerb Entities agree to arbitrate 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. EACH PARTY IS GIVING UP 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. YOU ALSO AGREE THAT ANY ARBITRATION MAY ONLY BE BROUGHT IN YOUR AND OUR INDIVIDUAL CAPACITIES, NOT AS A CLASS, PURPORTED CLASS OR REPRESENTATIVE ACTION. THE ARBITRATOR MAY NOT CONSOLIDATE MORE THAN ONE INDIVIDUAL OR ENTITY’S CLAIMS, AND MAY NOT OTHERWISE PRESIDE OVER ANY FORM OF A REPRESENTATIVE OR CLASS PROCEEDING.
The mutual promise by you and iHerb Entities to arbitrate any and all 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. 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 Entities otherwise agree, the arbitration will be conducted in the county where you reside by a single neutral arbitrator and in accordance with the then current rules for resolution of disputes of the American Arbitration Association (AAA) (available on line at www.adr.org). The parties are entitled to representation by an attorney or other representative of their choosing. The parties agree to abide by and perform any award rendered by the arbitrator. 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.
