Bayer PLUS 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 already enrolled in Bayer PLUS, do I need to re-enroll each year?

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

Will the program rewards roll over from year to year?

No, Bayer Plus rewards will not roll over from year to year. For instance, rewards earned in Program Year 2021 between September 1, 2020 and August 31, 2021, expire on April 30, 2022 and your account balance will be reset to $0. Purchases during Program Year 2022 between September 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022, expire on April 30, 2023 and your account balance will be reset to $0.

Is there a minimum amount required to qualify for redeeming your rewards?

To qualify for redemption, your rewards balance must be at least $1,500 for Bayer PLUS Rewards, $500 for Bayer PLUS Potato, or $500 for Bayer PLUS Southern Fruit and Vegetable.

Why are my Available Rewards $0 if there is money in my Total Rewards?

If you have redeemed all Available Rewards, that amount will show $0 while the Total Rewards keeps track of how much you have earned in the program altogether. If you have Available Rewards, 50% of that may be requested starting May 1, 2021. You will still see Total Rewards until the other 50% is unlocked during the 100% timeframe. 100% of rewards may be requested starting November 1, 2021 through April 30, 2022.

If you have not redeemed any rewards and Available Rewards is $0 while you have an amount in your Total Rewards, you have not reached the minimum required for redemption. Your rewards must be at least $1,500 for Bayer PLUS Rewards, $500 for Bayer PLUS Potato, or $500 for Bayer PLUS Southern Fruit and Vegetable.

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

When can I redeem my rewards?

No, purchases made between September 1, 2021 and August 31, 2022 count solely toward the 2022 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, 2022 rewards will not appear in your portal view until July 1, 2022.

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, 2022 purchases will not appear in your portal view until May 1, 2022. Those purchases that will be in your portal view are not redeemable until July 1, 2022.

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. Rewards are not considered taxable income according to tax laws. Contact your tax advisor or accountant for questions.

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.
