Store Loyalty Cards... A Few of the Biggies

     There are so many store loyalty cards these days that it’s hard to keep track of them all!  Here we dug up the information on a few of the local biggies.  They all have great things to offer, but sometimes you need to be careful about which ones you pick (when it comes to the ones you need to pay for).  As for the free ones, why not sign up?  You aren’t losing anything, and may even be surprised about what you can earn!

Sephora Beauty Insider Card

The Beauty Insider card from Sephora is a free membership that you can sign up for either in store or online.  For every dollar that you spend, you earn 1 point.  You can then redeem your points for deluxe samples.  Single samples usually run about 100 points, but for 500 points you can usually get a ‘set’ of something – be it an eye shadow palette, OPI nail polish trio, etc.  The samples are always changing, so you can save your points and redeem them whenever you wish.  If you love makeup and spend any amount of money on it, this card is worth getting as you can save up points over the long haul.

HMV PureHMV Card

For $3.00 you can get the PureHMV card at any HMV location or online.  You earn 100 points for every dollar that you spend, and can redeem the points in the “HMV Arena” on their website.  You can redeem your points for posters, products, signed items, and many other things, with the average redemption level around 75,000 to 125,000 points.  While you can redeem for some cool things, the redemption levels are a little high, but it’s a good card if you purchase a lot of music.

La Senza Prestige VIP Club Card

The La Senza Prestige card has a $10.00 annual fee, and you can sign up for it in store or online.  With this card you get a coupon booklet upon singing up (it even includes a coupon for a free pair of underwear during your birthday month), 10% everything in store for the year, exclusive email offers and sneak peeks at upcoming sales and events.  This card is definitely worth it for the price, and can pay for itself with the purchase of a few bras or some pajamas.

Shoppers Drug Mart Shoppers Optimum Card

The Shoppers Optimum card is a free card that you can sign up for in store or online.  You earn points for everything that you spend, and then redeem the points for money off of your purchases.  The best way to use this card is to only shop on 10x, 25x or 50x the point days, or for products that you earn bonus points on.  The current redemption levels are 8,000 points for $10.00, 22,000 for $30.00, 38,000 for $60.00, 50,000 for $85.00 and 95,000 for $170.00.  This card is worth it, but only buy on sale days or when products that you need are on sale – it can be an expensive place to purchase all of your essentials.

Hallmark Rewards Card

The Hallmark Rewards card is a free card that you can sign up for in store or online.  Upon signing up, you get a $5.00 off of a $25.00 purchase coupon.  With the card you can purchase 5 Hallmark cards for $15.00 (up to $6.00 each) anytime, receive exclusive offers and promotions via email, enjoy members only prices on select merchandise during certain times and receive invitations to members only sales and events.  This card is definitely worth it – so go sign up today!

Chapters Plum Rewards Loyalty Card

The Plum Rewards card is a free loyalty card that you can sign up for in store or online.  You earn 100 points for every dollar you spend, and get coupons via email for bonus points, etc.  There are also promotions in store where you can ear bonus plum points for certain books and products.  You can also save up to 5% on your online purchases at, enjoy free in store wifi, be notified of upcoming sales and events before the public, and even have book and product recommendations emailed to you based on the items that you buy.  The card nor the points ever expire so long as you use the card once a year.  This is definitely a card to sign up for, as the perks definitely outweigh the hassle of carrying around yet another store card.

Guess Guess List Rewards Card

The Guess List rewards card is free to sign up for, which you can do either in store or online.  You earn 1 point for every dollar you spend, and when you reach 200 points you get $10.00 off of your purchase.  With this card you also get double points on your birthday, enjoy exclusive events and offers, and even look at your purchase history online.  When shopping here, it is not hard to reach the 200 point level quite quickly, so it may be worth it for you even if you shop here only occasionally.

Body Shop Love Your Body Loyalty Card

The Love Your Body card can be obtained in store or online, and has an annual fee of $10.00.  With this card, you receive 10% off everything in store and online, a coupon for $10.00 off your purchase on your birthday, $25.00 off your purchase and free renewal when you’ve earned 8 points, exclusive email offers and promotions and sneak previews of new products.  You earn one point for every qualifying purchase over $25.00, and two points for every qualifying purchase over $50.00.  We love this store and their products, so this card is worth it for us.  The card pays itself off after you have purchased $100.00 worth of product.

American Eagle/Aerie AERewards

The AERewards card can be used at American Eagle Outfitters, Aerie and Aerie Kids, and is completely free.  You can sign up for this card in store or online, and with it you receive 1 point for every dollar spent (points are totaled up every 3 months).  When you reach 100 points you get 15% off of your purchase, 20% off with 200 points, 30% off with 350 points and 40% off with 500 points.  You also get 15% off for the month of your birthday.  Further, when you use this card at Aerie, when you purchase 5 bras you get the 6 one free.
