The lovely Mary-Lou of Patio Postcards asked her readers recently how many store/brand loyalty cards they carried. It was a good question!
A quick scan of my purse reveals seven store loyalty cards.
They are, from the top …
Costa Coffee – a national chain where The Boy Child and I spent a lot of time when he was younger. Points become money to spend in store.
Monsoon – a clothing store that’s a little pricier than average. Points become money off vouchers.
Tesco Clubcard – the loyalty card of a national supermarket. Points can become money off vouchers or converted to air miles. Guess which option I chose?
Waterstones – the UK’s only surviving national chain of bookstores. Points become money to spend in store.
Boots – the loyalty card of the UK’s leading nationwide chain of chemists. Points become money to spend in store. Plus, card holders regularly receive additional money off vouchers.
