Notes: Must forward order confirmations to receive credit for purchases. Members are REQUIRED to visit Henwen’s forum and acknowledge posts made by Dizawardsmom, otherwise account will be terminated. Can only redeem for rewards in a 30 day window following the end of a quarter, otherwise earnings roll over. Note that the site owner does not consider this a rewards program but rather a community that awards its members.
Premium membership lowers redemption costs but costs 2000-6000 points depending on level of membership (copper, silver, gold, platinum).
Site is currently being revamped.
