The new Salvos Stores loyalty program is the first of its kind in Australia, rewarding regular retail costumers for their continued support. The Salvos Stores Club Card, introduced in March 2015 across Victoria, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and the Northern Territory, can be obtained by customers who register online.
The loyalty program gives savvy op shoppers the opportunity to gain points for shopping in Salvos Stores, which means more savings on recycled goods; a win-win.
Points can earned when shopping in store and can be redeemed against purchases at a later date. The reward system works by receiving 1 point for every $1 you spend in a Salvos Store. Once your points rack up to 50, you can redeem them against purchases using your Salvos Club Card when paying for your goods.
You can review your points balance by logging into your online account. Salvos Stores Club Card points do not expire unless you do not earn or redeem any points on your account for a period of 12 consecutive months. You can read the full terms and conditions here; note that you may need to register online first.
In addition to reward points and savings on offer, all Salvos Stores Club Card holders will receive invitations to VIP events and other exclusive Club Card special offers.
The idea behind the Salvos Stores Club Card initiative is to reward customers who regularly support Salvos Stores by offering further discounts, which then encourages more shopping and thus more funds generated for The Salvation Army.
With 215 retail stores currently trading across all states, you will no doubt come into regular contact with a Salvos Store. Whether you donate your unwanted goods or shop for recycled wares, why not register to become a Salvos Stores Club Card member to reward your shopping when you pop in for a quick look and go home with a bag full (we've all done it, yes?).
