Customer Loyalty and Rewards Programs - UPDATED!



**UPDATED**

I love customer loyalty cards, rewards programs ad email lists! It's probably bordering on addiction. I have a crazy number of those little cards on my keychain, and my wallet is stuffed with even more. Below is a list of some of my favorites and where you can go to sign up.

Consider this list a work in progress. I plan on updating it and adding more details over time. Feel free to leave a comment if I missed one (or several!) - I'd love to add it to my list!

Store Loyalty Cards:

Good Cause: 4 ways to give for FREE!


Each Wednesday, I try to post a cause that you can donate to for FREE. Here are some of my favorite ones that are still active:



For every person who takes this online quiz, Kohler will donate $1, up to $1,000,000, to Habitat for Humanity. The ad says it will take 90 seconds, but it took me more like 15 seconds - so easy!


You can donate $1 to the American Red Cross for FREE, thanks to Curel. All you have to do is head on over here, enter your email address and click the button. Curel will donate $1 for every click - up to $250,000 - to American Red Cross.



With your help, Kraft will be donating up to 1 million boxes of Kraft Macaroni & Cheese to Feeding America. Once you click on the "donate" button, you'll be prompted to enter your name, email address and a friend's email address.



When you pledge to give up bad tanning habits for good through the Glow in the Dark Campaign, Jergens will donate $1 to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Jergens will donate $1 for every pledge made up to $20,000.

My $.10 trip to Kroger!

Total OOP: $.10 (one dime!!!)


E-coupons (the ones you load to a shoppers card from your computer) have always seemed like a tricky concept to me. Each week, I'd watch as some of my favorite bloggers would stack e-coupons with paper coupons to get some freaking sweet deals. Well....I'm happy to report that I finally got brave enough to try these things out for myself! Because I was a little hesitant about using e-coupons for the first time and wasn't sure how/if the overage would work, I decided to start small.

Here's the breakdown:

2 Lady Speed Stick deodorants - $1.50 each
= FREE

1 Speed Stick deodorant - $1.50
- Used $1.50 coupon from regional mailer
= FREE

3 Crest toothpastes - $1 each
- Used 2 $.50 coupons from insert (doubled to $1)
- Used 1 $.75 coupon from insert
= 3/$.25

1 Quaker Quakes - $.99
- Used $.50 coupon from sample (doubled up to $.99)
= FREE

Dentastix - $3.99
- Used $2.50 printable coupon
- Used $2.50 e-coupon from Shortcuts (These will stack with paper coupons.)
Total: $1.01 MONEYMAKER

Chex Mix - $1.99
- Used $.50 e-coupon from Shortcuts (e-coupons do not double)
= $.49

Subtotal: - $.27 (Love it when it's negative!)
Total OOP: $.10 (includes tax)
Total savings from sales and coupons: $25.31


It wasn't a huge trip, but I'm still pretty happy with the results!



*** Watch for an upcoming post on using e-coupons! ***
