- When you join the loyalty program, you receive a welcome bonus of 100 points.
- If you purchase our mochi skin set worth RM 459, you earn 918 points (1 RM = 2 points), adding to your total points balance.
- Your total points balance will now be 1018 points (100 welcome bonus points + 918 points earned from the mochi skin set purchase).
- If you redeem 1000 points for RM 20 off, you will have 18 points left in your account.
- For subsequent purchases, you can use the unlocked discount coupon of RM 20 off, and for every ringgit spent on your 2nd order, points will be credited to your account again.
Remember, the more you shop, the more points you earn, and the more rewards you can enjoy on your skincare journey with NIHON. Happy shopping!
