With so many shopping options on the local landscape, it can be overwhelming deciding where to go.
Let’s face it, the majority of us shoppers want to find the best bang for our buck – and if there’s an extra incentive or reward for our patronage, even better.
Nowadays, some retailers are offering enticing perks to encourage shopper loyalty, including Quality Foods and its popular Q-Card Reward program.
Fun fact: Did you know Quality Foods was the very first grocer in Canada to offer a reward points program?
At QF, one can earn points instantly while purchasing everyday grocery items and redeem them to receive special reward, discounts and unique offers. This includes items out of the store’s seasonally released Q-Card Catalogue, community activities, such as Royal British Columbia Museum passes or selected food staples like milk and chicken breasts.
What many don’t realize is that in addition to the points, there are numerous perks to carrying a card.
Here are eight of the stores coveted secrets to maximize the points program and reap the rewards faster.
