PROGRAM DETAILS

SIGNING UP
You will need to fill out a Direct Dollars authorization form that can be sent to you via email by emailing DirectDollars@mnidirect.com, speaking to your sales representative, or filling it out in the store on your next visit.

EARNING POINTS
For each $1 spent at any MNI Direct location, you will earn 1 point. Growth Points can also be earned by increasing 2018 purchases over 2017 total purchases. At the time that you exceed purchases from 2017, you will begin earning double Direct Dollars Program points on those increased purchases. To be eligible for growth bonus points you must have purchased from MNI Direct in 2017.

Points will appear on each invoice. You will see the points you earned on that days purchase as well as your total earned points. Points can be used for redemption as long as your account is in good standing.
