This year, we started something new here at Hot Sauce Depot called our Customer Rewards Program. We already try to keep our prices low, but we wanted to try and find another way to help our online retail customers save money—especially those of you who have been shopping with us for so long!
The way the program works is that you get one point for each dollar you spend on hot sauce, BBQ sauce, snacks, etc. (but not shipping costs--sorry!). Those points add up in your account, so when you reach a certain amount, your points automatically turn into a coupon code. You’ll get an email so you know when this happens. Then just enter that coupon code at checkout to get a discount off your next order. So 250 points are redeemable for a $5 reward, 500 points are redeemable for a $10 reward, etc. You’ll also want to keep your eyes peeled for Double Points Days, when you earn DOUBLE the points for each dollar you spend, so you’ll reach your coupon code even faster and can buy more of what you already buy anyway.
To keep track of your points, just log into your account at Hot Sauce Depot, and click on the Rewards Program tab (see the screenshot below). There, you’ll be able to see how many points you have so far, how many reward dollars you have available to spent, your coupon code, and also the date of when the coupon code will expire.
Although points don’t expire, once a reward code has been generated, you have to use it within 90 days. As an unused reward code approaches its expiration date, you’ll get a reminder email in advance so you’ll have time to buy hot sauce with your code before it expires.
Just remember that you have to have a free account at Hot Sauce Depot in order to start accruing points. If you use Guest Checkout every time you place an order, you won’t be getting credit for every dollar you spend. Besides, why would you want to keep checking out as a guest and enter your information all over again anyway? :) It’s so much easier to have a free account so you don’t have to re-enter your shipping information each time. Plus, your previous orders are saved in your account, so it’s easy for you to keep track of which hot sauces you’ve already tried and want to order again. There’s even a Reorder button within your previous orders, so you don’t even have to go searching the site for your favorite hot sauce every time you log in. Just click Reorder and get exactly what you got before. Easy!
We hope you like the new Customer Rewards Program. Thanks again for choosing Hot Sauce Depot as your one-stop shop for all things spicy!
