If you tend to shop in one particular place a lot, loyalty cards can be a great way to bag up some extra rewards and money off your shopping.
As long as you are not tempted to spend more or buy from a particular place, just because there’s a loyalty card in your purse, they can be a great way to get money off vouchers and freebies.
Here is MMM’s list of some of the best loyalty cards around:
Great for money off vouchers. You can also use points towards money off UK attractions. Go online to club card boost to double or even triple the value for days out or eating out.
|Boots Advantage Card
You get 4 points for every pound you spend and 10 points for every pound you spend on baby products if you are part of Boots Parenting Club. You can use the points to buy products from Boots. So for example, if you accumulate 500 points, that will be worth £5.00 worth of points to spend on what you like from the store.
This one is a good all rounder. You can collect points from hundreds of stores and spend them in various outlets such as Sainsbury’s, Argos and Amazon.
|Shell Drivers’ Club
With petrol prices in the UK being one of the highest in Europe, it is worth keeping this in your purse. You can collect points towards money off vouchers for petrol.
|Superdrug Beauty Card
Relatively new to the market, but worth having if you shop at Superdrug. Collect points towards money off your shopping.
|Avios (previously known as Airmiles)
This is a great loyalty scheme that can help you save up toward flights, car hire and hotels. You can collect Avios points in a number of ways, through grocery shopping, petrol and Avios e-stores.
Some people argue that loyalty cards are simply a marketing gimmick to make people spend more. But MMM believes that they can be worthwhile, particularly if you shop in one place a lot. For example, the Tesco Clubcard sends you money off vouchers and the points can quickly add up – it’s a no brainer if you shop there weekly. Just don’t be fooled by bonus points offers and don’t shop somewhere just because you can collect points.
