Rewards Programs

Posted: Updated:

WSVN -- Fern Fischbach loves to shop at Loehmann's.

Fern Fischbach: "I'm always looking for something new."

Because she shops here at least once a week, Fern didn't hesitate to sign up for the insider club gold program. For a $25 annual fee, members get 10-percent off every purchase advance notification of sales and promotions and birthday perks too.

Fern Fischbach: "I think customers have loyalty to companies that are service oriented and do something for the customers."

Experts say if you shop frequently at a particular store, loyalty programs are worth checking out.

Mike Letizia: "I think in this economic climate today retailers are becoming a little more competitive. I think it's important to enhance the experience customers receive when they're in the store."

Some membership programs also offer perks. At Costco, an executive membership costs $110 a year but you also get back a yearly check totaling 2 percent of what you've spent.

Ed Flaherty: "I think that all people are looking for some sort of reward especially if they're going to the same place and shopping over and over, and I think that retail establishments are realizing that."

Sherrie was happy with her rewards check.

Sherrie Nivelt: "We got back $163 at the end of the year the rewards pay for the executive membership by itself."

Then there are loyalty programs that don't cost anything. Join up and get a membership card, spend money and earn perks at winn-dixie you can get discount gas.

At Sephora its free gifts.

Maryestela Aguliar: "I think it's very important just for a consumer to ask if a rewards program is available to them. You want to have them feel a little more appreciative of their business so they keep coming in and they're repeat clients."

It's all about analyzing your spending habits and working the perks that benefit you.
