Rewarding with points provides customers with timely purchase tracking to motivate loyalty and increase spending.  

In the ongoing exploration of loyalty programs, this article focuses on the next step in the Customer Connection Cycle: Rewarding with points.

There are a few ways to reward loyalty and to track customer purchases. One of them is with stamps and we talked in depth in a previous article. Today we’re going to talk about points.

Step 5 in the Customer Connection Cycle: Rewarding with Points

In the last several “Lessons in Loyalty” articles we explored creating and running a successful loyalty program. This month, we will talk about rewarding with points.

First, we looked into loyalty program foundations with the 3 E’s (having easy, empowering, and engaging programs) and the 3 C’s (clear, compelling, and consistent promotions and communications). Then we talked about solidifying the customer relationship by giving an overview of the Customer Connection Cycle, covering recruiting members into your loyalty program, member engagement strategiespromoting the program, and finally in-store excellence. Now, we will talk about rewards.

Strategies for Successful Point Reward Loyalty Programs

When launching a retail loyalty points program, one of your initial decisions is to decide the currency to track member purchases. You track money spent or assign numerical points. 

Stamps are very absolute and track the exact purchase of certain items. Points, however, offer more flexibility to give more weight to certain products, offer additional points for accomplishing tasks, and establish tiers and statuses.

10 Tips for Rewarding With Points for Loyalty Program Success

1

Award Points for All Products
Reward customers for all purchases, including fuel, in-store products, and carwash to avoid confusion. Allow points to be earned and redeemed in all categories (except age-restricted items like tobacco and alcohol when prohibited by law). Customize points allocation per product based on margins.

2

Award Points on Amount Spent
Award points based on the amount spent, not visits and transactions, to prioritize high-spending customers and avoid delays at checkout. With visit-based or transactions-based points, customers will attempt to pay in separate transactions or leave and come back, causing unnecessary delays at the register.

3

Reward Behaviors
Use points to reward customers for signing up, referring friends, sharing profiles, answering surveys, playing games, and sharing content. Celebrate birthdays with bonus points to build brand advocacy.

4

Create Customer Tiers
Recognize top customers with different tiers and offer exclusive benefits to higher tiers, creating an emotional connection and incentive to spend more.

5

Award Higher Base Points for Priority Members
Give higher base points to top-tier members to motivate them to reach and maintain higher tiers. Be sure to recognize them and celebrate their status whenever possible, too!

6

Better Burn Rates for Better Customers
Offer better conversion rates and lower point requirements for higher-tier members on select products.

7

Build in Generous Bonus Periods
Plan campaigns with double or triple points during key times to boost engagement and drive foot traffic.

8

Create Compelling Product Campaigns
Offer bonus points on specific products or categories supported by suppliers to increase sales and brand awareness.

9

Ensure Rewards are Accessible
Make rewards easy to redeem to encourage spending, trust, and recommendations. Highlight high-margin products as affordable rewards.

10

Allow Customers to See Unlockable Benefits
Show all members the benefits of higher tiers to motivate increased spending and loyalty.
