Bayer PLUS Rewards general questions that apply to all programs

Here is a list of the most commonly asked questions relating to the Bayer PLUS Rewards program.

If I’m enrolled in the 2020 program, do I need to re-enroll in the 2021 program?

No, those currently enrolled in Bayer PLUS will not have to re-enroll in the 2021 program. Your membership will automatically carry over to the new program year.

Will the program rewards roll over from year to year?

No, Bayer rewards will not roll over from year to year. For instance, points earned in Market Year 2021 will expire April 30th 2022, and the account will be reset before redemption for the next year begins.

How does redemption work and what if I don’t see my rewards?

When can I redeem my rewards?

2020 program:

From November 1, 2020 through April 30, 2021, growers with an available rewards balance (from the 2020 program) will be able to redeem 100% of their rewards.

Growers who redeemed 50% of their rewards during the early redemption period will be able to redeem the remaining 50% of their 2020 rewards.

2021 program:

From May 1, 2021 through October 31, 2021, qualifying growers who have met or exceeded the $1,500 threshold, can redeem 50% of their rewards.

From November 1, 2021 through April 30, 2022, growers with an available rewards balance (from the 2021 program) will be able to redeem 100% of their rewards.

What do I need to do to qualify for redemption?

You must have $1500 in Bayer rewards to request redemption, with a minimum amount of $500 per check.

Do 2021 purchases count towards my 2020 rewards?

No, purchases made on or after September 1, 2020 count solely towards the 2021 program.

How do I redeem my rewards?

Follow these three easy steps to redeem:

  • Login to the Bayer PLUS Grower Portal
  • Click on Redeem Cash in the left menu
  • Follow on-screen prompts to enter redemption amount and recipient information before submitting your request.

After submitting, you will receive a confirmation email as well as the redemption receipt.

Check out this helpful Bayer PLUS Grower Portal tutorial that includes step-by-step instructions on the redemption process as well as other key features.

Are there any other ways my rewards can be used?

How you use your rewards is totally up to you! When you redeem through the ‘Request Check’ function within the grower portal, you can have the check sent directly to you, your retailer, a deserving family member/friend or even the charity of your choice (Recipient/organization must be in the U.S.).

How long will it take for my check to arrive after redeeming?

Your check will arrive within two weeks after redemption.

What if I don't see my purchases and rewards?

If you don’t see your purchases or rewards or if you think the information within your portal view is incorrect, don’t hesitate to Contact Support. If you prefer, you can also contact your retailer who should be able to help you look into it.

Do note, 2021 purchases (those made on or after September 1, 2020) will not appear in your portal view until May 1, 2021.

Why is my Total Rewards balance different from my Available Rewards balance?

As you make redemptions throughout the year, the amount redeemed is removed from your Available Rewards balance total. Your Total Rewards balance will not change as it represents all the rewards you have earned through Bayer PLUS.

Will I be able to see all of the qualifying products that I’ve purchased?

Yes, you will have visibility into the purchases that your retailer(s) have reported related to your Technology ID(s). Do note, 2021 purchases will not appear in your portal view until May 1, 2021.

What if I don’t remember, or cannot find, my Technology ID?

If you can’t find your Technology ID at the time of sign-up you will be able to 1) look up your ID, 2) create a new ID, 3) use your Bayer Innovation Plus Loyalty ID or 4) contact the CIC for assistance.

Will you ensure that the head of the farm will receive all rebates?

Rebates for all Bayer PLUS Rewards will be calculated and paid at the Farm Unit/Head Farm level. The Head Grower is the only person who can request the redemption.

Will Bayer PLUS issue 1099s for rebates?

We do not provide 1099s on rebates.

Will I need to report my own sales information?

The retailer(s) will report Grower Sales Data so you will not have to do any reporting to have your rewards calculated.

Does Bayer Offer Grower Financing on Crop Protection Products?

Yes, our partnerships with John Deere Financial and Rabo AgriFinance provide our growers with financing options on a variety of eligible crop protection products. Download the flyer for details on Grower Finance programming for Market Year 2021.
