Have you heard of loyalty and reward schemes? If you have a regular supermarket or store that you use on a regular basis then you should be getting rewarded for your loyalty. Many supermarkets and store have loyalty schemes which can earn you points that can be redeemed against products or services.
Most store loyalty schemes can be applied for online or some have paper applications that take less than 5 minutes to complete. There are also some store that have apps that you can just get your phone scanned to collect more points. Once you have registered you can start to collect points each time you shop. The points can then be exchanged for money off products or services. Some of the loyalty schemes have a minimum cash out limit, which is usually £5.00-£10.00. It is a great way to earn money on regular purchases or save the points for purchasing special gifts, for example at Christmas.
Here are the links to the top 20 loyalty cards/apps:
Smaller retail stores loyalty schemes
There are many other reward schemes available and not just for large high street retailers. Smaller stores may operate a smaller paper based card that you collect ink stamps for each purchase. It is always worth asking if they have a rewards or loyalty card scheme. You may be surprised at which companies and services that you already use have one. For example, collect 10 stamps get a free cake or coffee.
The rewards on offer
So what can you get for the points you collect? Each store offers a different rewards, which have different monetary values. Some points equal a 1p some equal a £1.00, there is no one standard offering. With so much on offer, the savings you can make will stack up. For example I have used points off my weekly shop when money has been tight, saved points and used them to buy lots of Christmas presents which were also on special offer. It is up to you how and when you use the points you collate, but you have to start collecting today to reap the rewards. Let me know what great things you have purchased with your reward points.
