Nectar cards, Tesco Clubcards, Boots Advantages cards, Avios – if we were to sign up to every loyalty reward scheme that gets offered to us then our wallets would be bulging at the seams with pieces of plastic.
Most of us like the idea of receiving the benefits seemingly on offer through loyalty schemes, although it’s not practical to say yes to everything. With this in mind Virgin Money has looks at which ones are worth your time, as well as how to get the most out of them.
Their research has thrown up a number of interesting points that may not be clear when first signing up to a scheme, such as these insights on the Boots Advantage Card: “Many Boots stores have extra offer kiosks for personalised money-off coupons and offers based on the purchase history stored on your Advantage Card. Just put your card in the machine to access them.”
“Once you are finished with your old electrical items, like digital cameras, MP3 players, sat navs and mobile phones, you can swap them for Advantage Card points. These will be automatically loaded onto your card within 30 days. You just need to register at Boots Recycle, and send the goods in the freepost envelope you’re sent. An 8GB 3G iPhone is worth more than 5,000 points – which is £50 to spend!”
