Our incentive program is a customer savings program where the more you spend, the more you save. Here’s how:

- Discounts will occur automatically at the time of purchase.
- If you attain a higher tier during the calendar year, you will advance to the next level of discount. In addition, you will receive retroactive credit for prior sales during that year, that you would have achieved under the new tier! This credit will be applied to your account.
