Frequently Asked Questions


What is the Hot Potatoes Rewards Program?

Hot Potatoes® is a point redemption program offered to horticultural growers in Canada. To qualify, growers must purchase participating horticultural products from Bayer. Click here to see the eligible products.


Isn't Hot Potatoes only for potato growers?

Not anymore. Hot Potatoes began as a reward program available to potato growers. Now we’ve expanded the program to include a wide variety of products for horticultural crops from Bayer.


How long is the program active?

The Hot Potatoes Rewards Program runs for two years. The 2016/2017 program is active from October 1, 2015 until September 30, 2017.


I am a 2014/2015 Hot Potatoes member. Do I have to register for the 2016/2017 program?

No, you are automatically registered in the 2016/2017 program. If you’d like to be removed from the program contact the Hot Potatoes Rewards Centre at 1 877-661-6665.


How do I become a member of the Hot Potatoes Program?

You can become a member of the Hot Potatoes program by filling out this online form.


How does the program work?

The program is simple. For every $1 spent on qualifying horticultural crop protection products (based on manufacturer suggested retail price) from Bayer, you’re rewarded 1 Hot Potatoes reward point. As your point balance increases, you can redeem your points for cash or save up for the exclusive group trip.


When does the program end?

The program is based on the total purchases of qualifying products for the 2016 and 2017 seasons. All reward submissions must be made by November 30, 2017.

Can I add the reward points I collected in 2014/2015 to my 2016/2017 reward points total?

No, you cannot carry over any of your 2014/2015 reward points to the 2016/2017 Hot Potatoes Rewards Program. All of your unused points from 2014/2015 have been forfeited.


Can each member of my family join the Hot Potatoes Rewards Program?

Yes, however there should be one account per farm name. If you make horticultural purchases under multiple farm names, we recommend having one account for each farm.


Can I combine reward points with a family member or friend?

Only immediate family members may combine Hot Potatoes reward points. The Hot Potatoes Rewards Centre must receive a letter from, and signed by all parties, indicating that they wish to combine all available points. Contact the Hot Potatoes Rewards Centre by phone at 1 877-661-6665.


When can I redeem my points for a cash rebate and/or the group trip?

You can redeem your points for cash anytime, but can only redeem your points for the group trip to a sunny destination in 2018. If you redeemed your points for cash in 2016, you will be paid on all 2016 points even if the points were not in the system during time of redemption. If you redeem your points for cash in 2017, you will be paid on all 2016 and 2017 points (if you have not redeemed for cash in 2016) even if the points are not in the system during time of redemption. If you redeem your points for cash in 2017 and already redeemed for cash in 2016, you will be paid on all 2017 points even if the points are not in the system during time of redemption. If you choose to redeem your points for cash, you cannot switch to the group trip later on. If you choose to redeem the group trip first, you can redeem your remaining points for cash. Any points not redeemed by November 30, 2017 will automatically be redeemed for cash.
