Green Aqua Points and Coupons

Green Aqua has been offering discounts to our customers from the very first day of our business in 2009. The reward system has grown to be really popular among our returning customers in Hungary and has been expended to the English language webshop too. As a rule of thumb we can say, that the result of this system will leave you with a maximum of 5% discount after your purchases! Collecting and spending points is a straightforward process. This page will explain it in detail.
Please be aware that the procedure of giving and deducting points is not instantaneous - as it is mostly made by hand during order processing. For example, the points earned for webshop reviews will have to be approved before the new balance is shown in your account. Another - more frequent - example: you will have to wait until your order is shipped (processed) before you can spend your points for that particular order - for a new purchase. You will see "pending points" or "pending approval" notes in your account until our colleagues process it by hand - this is not an automatic process. You will in turn see how many points you have collected (and pending) until that is done.
Besides Green Aqua points you can also use Discount Coupons in our Webshop. Please read the instructions on how to use these codes before posting your order - codes sent in order comments will not be accepted. Details at the bottom of this page.

How many points do I earn after my orders?

As a basic rule Green Aqua will reward 100 points after each 7.8 Euros that you spend in your order. You will get an additional 100 extra points after each 31.25 Euros that you have spent. This will leave you with an approximate 5% discount after your purchase that can be used later. (Active).

Can I use or can I earn Green Aqua Points during physical shop purchases?

Yes, you can use your points to get get discount after purchases at our shop, but you will not get any points after purchases (this reward system was mainly introduced for internet orders). Please let us know if you wish to use Green Aqua points before the payment process in our shop. You will only have to give your email address as reference, point deduction will be manually done by our colleagues.

What is the validity of the Green Aqua Points?

Current setting allows you to use your points for 6 months after they appear in your account. Green Aqua aims to maintain this policy for longer times, but we reserve the right to restructure our points system at any time which could result in loss of your points if you fail to use them. You will receive two warning emails before expiry of your Green Aqua Points, so you will have enough time to plan and use them in our shop. All points that expire will be deleted from your account after the validity period.

Using Points
in your Shopping Cart

There are two places on our website where you can use your existing Green Aqua points. You can only access these pages if you have at least one product in your Shopping Cart.

The first option is to drag your mouse over the shopping cart icon on the upper right corner of the page and click the "View all" button. This is your Shopping Cart page.

On the top of your Shopping Cart page you will find a slider under the "Spend your points" section. You can specify how much you would like to use for a particular purchase if you move the slider to right and left or click the plus and minus buttons. As a second option here, you can check the "Maximize my discount with points" checkbox to use all your points - but only up to the limit of your current order value. The total discount is recalculated automatically on the right side of the page, under the "Discount" EUR amount.

On the example from the picture we chose to spend 322 points which have resulted in an automatically calculated discount of 1.03 Euros - visible on the right. The Grand Total was recalculated accordingly. (If you have a Discount Codes, you can use that also on the Shopping Cart page by entering your coupon code and clicking Apply Coupon).

Using Points
on the Order Review page

The second option of using your Green Aqua points is at stage 5 of the Checkout procedure, under "Order Review".

You will find a similar "Spend your points" section here, with a slider and a checkbox. The method is the same: you can use the slider (and the plus and minus icons) to specify an exact amount of points you wish to use, or check the maximizing box. The amount of the total discount (visible on the right) will be automatically recalculated after each change.

We have checked the "Maximize my discount" checkbox in the example. You can see that this has resulted in spending 1000 points which means a discount of 3.2 Euros (remember the daily EUR/HUF rate of 320 at valid on the time of this transaction). The Grand Total was recalculated to include the Discount.

You can use Discount Codes (otherwise known as Coupon Codes) in our webshop. These codes will be delivered in many ways to our customers, for example via Newsletters (Newsletter subscription at the bottom of the page).

Validating Coupons
on Shopping Cart page

You can apply Coupon Codes on the Shopping cart page. There has to be at least one item in your cart in order to view the option. To display your shopping cart, please move your mouse over the shopping cart icon on the upper right corner of the webpage and click on the "View all" button. (This button will only appear if you have already placed at least one item in your shopping cart). The middle of the Shopping Cart page has a "Discount Codes" section, this is where you will have to type in or paste your coupon code.

It is important to click the "Apply Coupon" button right after pasteing your code in the textbox. If you do not validate your code, your discount will not appear in the Grand Total. Once you are done with that, you can click "Proceed to Checkout".

Important Notes

The points usage is protected by a Green Aqua "monitoring system" that enables us to scan and easily find an eventual abuse. Please use the system as designed. Green Aqua has the right to withdraw from the transaction, clear you points and remove your profile completely in the case in which we suspect fraud.

If you have further questions or comments in regards of our Points System, please contact our Customer Support.
