American Express has a slogan “Membership has its privileges.” This saying so so very true!! There are so many membership or rewards programs that you can join where you will actually MAKE money while you spend. How is that for a great deal?
Famous Footwear – Join their club and you will get a coupon for $10.00 off of your first purchase using your card. Then, you earn points when you purchase shoes. Many times, you will get coupons for $10.00 off your next purchase. You will get a card mailed to you within 3 – 4 weeks. Until then, you can take your number with you to the store and get credit for your purchases.
When I signed up, I earned 10 points for filling out the profile and then 25 more points just for having my statements e-mailed to me!
JC Penney – You get $10.00 of a $10.00 purchase rewards sent to you as well as other great savings just for signing up. This one does not give you a card. Instead, it attaches your purchases to your debit or credit card.
Now, you all know I am advocate for cash. However, earning free clothing makes me willing to use my card. I just simply make my purchase and then on the way home, I stop by the bank and make a deposit back into my account for that purchase. So, I have still used my cash, but also am getting credit for my purchase!
Price Chopper – When you get the Chopper Card, your total spending is accumulated and you can actually get coupons mailed to you as a thank you for shopping.
In addition, Price Chopper has the Kids’ Club, where your children get something FREE every month. For example, the month of August, each child will get a FREE box of Fruit Snacks. As a mom of 3, I can say for sure FREE works!!! We have gotten chocolate milk and even popcorn in the past.
You must get this card in the store as you can’t apply on line.
Hallmark – Earn points for each purchase which earns you coupons to use on future purchases. This is great help if you happen to love the Keepsake ornaments, like me!
Borders – You get points accumulated as you spend. You will get coupons and special offers email to you occasionally. I received a $5.00 off my next purchase coupon the minute I opened my account.
You also will need to pick up this card at the store, but you can register it on line to get e-mailed savings and offers.
I know there are SO many more rewards programs out there. There is just not any way I can list every one of them here. If you aren’t sure if the store where you shop has one, just ask them. You never know when you can get signed up and start earning just by doing what you are already going to do — SHOP!
