Need a little extra cash for an upcoming fall gardening project? Sign up for WaterSaver Rewards and earn points for your water-saving practices. But hurry, you need to collect seven points before the end of October to earn a $70 coupon!
Sign up online at gardenstylesa.com/rewards. Once your registration is approved (we verify that you’re a SAWS residential water customer), you’ll receive a card with your name and unique rewards number. To earn points at qualifying events, you’ll need to show this card; don’t forget!
Points are earned simply by participating in conservation workshops or other events — or by retiring your irrigation system (functional or not). Then you’ll be on your way to earning a rewards coupon to buy plants, landscaping materials, rain barrels and more at participating vendors.
Browse the GardenStyle Events Calendar for qualifying events — they’ll be indicated as “rewards eligible.” Call to reserve a spot or just show up, depending on the event. There’s lots of exciting events during the month of October so don’t delay!
Here’s a hint: schedule a home irrigation consultation (two points) and retire that functioning in-ground irrigation system (five points) and you’ll earn that coupon lickety split! Again, you must earn those seven points by Oct. 31, 2017.
Your $70 coupon will automatically be mailed within one month to the SAWS service address provided during the sign-up. You can redeem the coupon for materials that contribute with water conservation efforts, such as:
Coupons expire Nov. 30, 2017 and will not be reissued.
Got water-wise ways? There’s still time to earn points that’ll get you a bonus coupon to buy plants, landscaping supplies and other water-saving materials.
