My Science Perks

My Science Perks is FREE! Log in or create a free Home Science Tools account, place an order, and earn up to 6% back* when your order ships!

Thanks for your interest in our Rewards program! We’re working on some exciting changes to the program. You can expect the new program to have a fresh look and be easier for you to earn and redeem rewards every time you shop with us. Stay tuned – we’ll be back up and running tomorrow!

Hassle-Free Savings

My Science Perks is our new rewards program that awards you points for every purchase. The more points you earn, the faster you advance through VIP levels to earn even more!

Join. Earn. Save.

To join, create an account with Home Science Tools and you'll be enrolled in the My Science Perks program automatically. We’ll give you 200 points (equal to $2) just for joining!
(Note: If you already have an HST account, just sign in, My Science Perks uses the same account so you have less to keep track of.)

Earn points by placing an order while logged in to your account. You can redeem points in increments of 100 ($1). For example, earn 200 points to take $2 off your next order, or save up your points and earn 2,000 points to get $20 off an order!

As well as placing online orders while logged in, you can earn points and special rewards in other ways:

  • Like or Share our Facebook page.
  • Follow Home Science Tools on Instagram.
  • Review products you buy from Home Science Tools.
  • Refer your friends to shop with us—they get a reward, too!
  • Tell us when your birthday is and you’ll get points on your special day each year!

Three VIP Levels – Silver, Gold & Platinum 

As you earn points, you upgrade levels, unlocking additional rewards and perks along the way. Earn more to save more!

  1. Silver members earn 2% back on all purchases (2 points for every $1 spent)
  2. Gold members earn 4% back on all purchases (4 points for every $1 spent)
  3. Platinum members earn 6% back on all purchases (6 points for every $1 spent)

Everyone starts at Silver and advances to Gold after earning 1,000 My Science Perks points.

When your order ships, your reward points will automatically be added to your account. To check your balance, click on the blue “My Science Perks” button on the bottom of any page to be taken to the My Science Perks center. Then, sign into your HST account (which is also your My Science Perks account) to view your balance, redeem points, see how many points you need to move up to the next tier, and check out all the ways you can earn more points!

A. Yes, you will earn points based off the order subtotal amount.

Q. How can I get credited for referring friends to the My Science Perks program?

A. Access your referral link in the My Science Perks center (via the button at the bottom of any page on our site). You can share the link directly or use the buttons to share via Facebook, Twitter, or email. When your friend follows the link, he/she will get a coupon for $5 off his/her first order. You will earn 500 My Science Perks reward points ($5 in store credit) when the coupon is redeemed on the first purchase with a new HST account. (Please note that referred customers must create an account on our site at time of purchase, guest checkouts will not count towards a referral!)
