Savings Center

The savings you earn through the Appleseed's VIP Plus program are deposited into your Savings Center and sent out in the form of Appleseed's Savings Certificates redeemable anywhere Appleseed's Savings Certificates are accepted. Savings that are eligible for Appleseed's Savings Certificates include: shipping rebates, return shipping rebates, 5% back on grocery purchases, and 5% of purchases made through the VIP Plus Marketplace and purchases through our list of eligible retailers. You will receive a quarterly summary of your savings by email or mail if you have account activity during the previous 3-month period. Appleseed's Savings Certificates expire 90 days after the date of issue.

Once approved, these claims will be added to your “Pending Savings Certificates” total.) Once your savings reaches $10 at the end of a month, we’ll send you Appleseed's Savings Certificates. Any remaining balance under $10 will stay in your Savings Center as “Pending Savings Certificates” until you reach $10 again. (For example, if you have Pending Savings Certificates in the amount of $23, you will receive $20 in Appleseed's Savings Certificates, and the remaining $3 balance will stay in your Savings Center, where you can see it in the “Pending Savings Certificates” section.)
