With the holidays coming people are trying to buy food for holiday dinners and gifts for Christmas, but inflation is making that harder.
There are ways people try to save as much money as they can, and one of these ways is by joining a store loyalty program.
The issue with loyalty programs is that they come with a cost, according to News10NBC. The costs include the store being able to track your purchases, how often you make purchases, and how much of what it is you’re purchasing.
Deanna Dewberry with News10NBC did research to see which loyalty programs were the most consumer friendly and benefit the customer the most.
Kohl’s loyalty program will give you a dollar for each point you earn, with a $5 coupon for every 100 points. That’s for every $100 spent, giving you 5% cash back.
JCPenney gives customers a $10 coupon for every $100 they spend, which is equivalent to 2.5% cashback.
Amazon Prime is $139 annually and gives customers free shipping and streaming services.
Walmart+ is Walmart’s competition for Amazon Prime and costs $98 annually. It also comes with Paramount streaming.
In addition to great loyalty programs are stores that have a price match policy.
