Loyalty cards. Are they worth the hassle?
If you’re like most people, you’ve got a stack of loyalty cards in your wallet. Whether it’s the grocery store, the pharmacy, or your favourite clothing store, having a rewards card means that you can get back a little something extra every time you shop. But are those rewards really worth the effort? Let’s take a look at the benefits of your loyalty cards and how you can help boost your rewards even further.
Loyalty programs offer discounts and points that can be redeemed for other items or discounts in their respective stores. It’s an easy way for us to get a little back for spending our hard-earned money. Two of Australia’s biggest grocery stores reward you with points for just doing your normal shopping and after a few visits you can redeem your points for a discount on your next bill and over time this can mean a significant amount of cash back. But it’s not just getting cash back, we’ve all heard the stories of our friends and family redeeming points for overseas holidays – so a little can turn into a lot!
Why do stores have loyalty cards?
Scanning your rewards card at the check-out passes valuable information on the products you buy and the time you shop onto retailers so they can entice you with offers on products you’d find valuable. They also use this information to make sure stores can handle consumer demands at peak times. In return for providing this information, you get a small reward that can mean a significant amount over time lowering your overall spend – it’s win-win!
What can we do to increase our rewards?
That’s where Shping comes in! Using your Shping app, available from Google Play Store and Apple store, allows you to scan barcodes on products within participating stores (including Woolworths) to find out more about them – such as nutritional information and reviews – as well as collect rewards coins with a receipt upload which translates into real dollars that you can cash out!
A number of Shping users are cashing out $75.00 a month by doing all the in-app activities like writing reviews, scanning barcodes, engaging with brand content. Shping makes this possible by allowing brands, not stores, to reward their customers so you can turbocharge your rewards by using your store loyalty cards and using the Shping app.
All of this adds up to huge savings over time—a great reward that really makes it worth it! Best of all it’s made to work with the current loyalty card system so it’s an addition not a substitution. Shping has even included a way that you can store your loyalty cards inside the app. You’ll never miss out on maximizing your rewards again!
Loyalty cards may seem like small potatoes but they can add up to some significant savings over time—especially if you use apps like Shping to maximize your rewards! The key is understanding how these programs work so that you can make sure that all your purchases count towards your rewards balance. So take the time to read through the fine print of any loyalty program before signing up so that you know exactly what kind of rewards are available and the best way to use them! With just a little bit of research and effort, you’ll be able to maximise your returns while still getting great value on all your purchases – now that’s worth it!
