It has been revealed that loyalty card owners in Britain are holding over £1.3 billion (around ¢2.2 billion) in unclaimed loyalty points in their wallets and purses!
Around 9/10 people subscribe to a loyalty card scheme and about 1/7 of these people have an average amount of £28.60 (¢47.84) left unclaimed.
At Qmee we make claiming your rewards as easy as possible – just a click of a button and your PayPal account is filled with your pennies, but some companies seem to make points redemption a bit of a chore. This is probably why so many of you forsake claiming them.
How many time a day are you asked for the multiple loyalty cards that take up much-needed space in your wallet? Do you ever bother getting your card scanned? This could be because some companies don’t tell you the real value of what you’re collecting, make a point of finding out when you’re next in store – they could be more beneficial than you know!
However, we are still saving more than we are wasting, with the total points redemption equating to £2.1 billion (around ¢3.5 billion) in savings – so that’s something for the conscious among you!
