Loyalty card reward scheme

Salvation Army Trading Company’s Brechin charity shop has launched a brand new customer loyalty card scheme this week that will help customers’ budgets stretch further by giving them the chance to earn up to £15 worth of rewards for shopping and donating.

The Bridge Street shop’s new ‘re:ward’ card is a free, double-sided loyalty card that rewards customers each time they spend £5 in the shop or donate their unwanted items using one of the shop’s reuseable ‘re:bags’.

Each time a customer spends £5 in-store, one side of their re:ward card, entitled ‘re:visit’ will be stamped, with 10 stamps entitling customers to a £5 credit to spend in-store.

On the other side of the card is the reward scheme for donations to the store, which works in conjunction with a re:bag – a reusable black, white and red bag that can be bought in-store for 99p.

Each time a re:bag is brought into the store full of donations, a stamp to the value of £2 will be given, replacing the current system of issuing £2 vouchers.

The customer can redeem their £2 stamp straightaway, or save up the stamps to spend together, with each card having space for up to 5 re:bag credits.

There is no limit to how many re:ward cards a customer can complete and no paperwork to fill out, with shoppers simply picking a card up in-store and presenting it to a team member to receive their stamps.

“In total, each re:ward card is worth up to £15 to regular customers who can earn £5 for shopping with us and £10 for donating to us, although it can be used just for donating or shopping – there’s no requirement to use both sides,” explains area manager for Salvation Army Trading Company Arlene McKenna.

Profit from Salvation Army trading Company Ltd’s shops is gift-aided to The Salvation Army to help fund its valuable work throughout the UK and Republic of Ireland such as homelessness services, elderly care, family tracing, support at emergency incidents and much, much more.
