5 Fashion, Beauty And Jewellery Retailers With Amazing Reward And Loyalty Programs
If you’ve ever fallen prey to ‘Spend and Save’ at Country Road (guilty!) then you know... loyalty programs are where it’s at!
There’s nothing like getting rewards to motivate spending, are we right? It’s so enticing to spend when you know you can build points for future store credits!
At Francesca we’re all about building a community and making sure our beautiful customers get a great experience and worthy rewards (you know in the name of solid gold and sterling silver bracelets, earrings, rings and necklaces) for their loyalty.
We have an amazing loyalty program that offers our Franc Fam points and opportunities to receive free jewellery gifts as well, something we think really helps spread the love (especially at Christmas).
We’re not alone either, there are so many fashion, beauty, tech retailers that now offer loyalty programs and with great success! Australians, as it turns out love loyalty programs!
According to a survey conducted by Mastercard (as published on Retail World Magazine), nine of ten Australians have a loyalty card in their pocket and out of the whole Asia Pacific region, 62 per cent of Australians believe a loyalty program helps influence their shopping behaviour.
And well, who hasn’t spent more on their credit card just to earn frequent flyer points? It’s a thing!
While we’re all about travel and frequent flyers at Franc —with our latest Firenze heirloom jewellery collection inspired by our time in Florence in Italy —it turns out nationwide 79 per cent of Australians admit their most drawn to retail loyalty/rewards programs above airline and financial institution schemes.
Which we’re so about... just saying!
But aside from being fans of our own Francesca loyalty program, as serious shoppers, designers and trend forecasters, it’s safe to say in the name of ‘research’ we’ve pretty much sussed out all the best retail loyalty programs.
Out of love for our Franc fam, we’ve decided to do a wrap of the top five loyalty/rewards programs we recommend across fashion, beauty, jewellery retailers.
Read on for our curated edit of the best rewards and loyalty programs across Aus retailers.
