Your monthly discount is calculated based on your average shipping spend over the last 6 fiscal months period.
A Fiscal Month begins on the last Sunday in a calendar month and ends on the last Saturday in the immediately subsequent calendar month. The calculation occurs automatically on the last Saturday of each calendar month and the discount is applied to your shipments over the next Fiscal Month.
Here’s an example of how it works:
- Purolator received a total of $5,000 in shipping revenue from Co. ABC over the last 6 Fiscal Months of 2011. This is known as the “Assessment Period”.
- We take the total shipping revenue received over the Assessment Period ($5000) and divide it by the number of business days in the last 6 calendar months (126 business days) to get the average shipping revenue per day for Co. ABC ($39.60).
- Then we annualize the average shipping revenue per day ($39.60) over the number of business days in the last 12 calendar months or, in this case, January to December 2011 (252 business days) to get the estimated annual shipping revenue with Purolator ($9,997.20).
- Based on an estimated annual shipping revenue of $9,997.20 (or monthly shipping revenue of $831.60), Co. ABC’s discount for the next Fiscal Month will be 15%.
The more you ship, the more you save!

When will I start to see my savings?
If you had a 6 “Fiscal Month” shipping history with Purolator immediately before enrolling in the Purolator Business Rewards program, the discount you are entitled to under the program will automatically be applied to your shipments so you will start to see your savings right away. A Fiscal Month begins on the last Sunday in a calendar month and ends on the last Saturday in the immediately subsequent calendar month.
If you are a new Purolator business account customer or do not have a 6 Fiscal Month shipping history with Purolator immediately before enrolling, and you were not eligible for any Program-related discount or promotion in effect at your date of enrollment, you will not receive a discount in your first Fiscal Month in the Purolator Business Rewards program. You will start to see savings in the second Fiscal Month after enrolling if you shipped with Purolator in your first Fiscal Month in the program.
