Tesco’s Clubcard is long due a makeover

Loyalty cards and the insight they bring have proven invaluable to businesses. However, discounted prices hold an appeal, particularly with today’s money-pressed shoppers.

Though loyalty programmes are a great asset, businesses shouldn’t become complacent. Customers tend to get used to loyalty programmes quickly, so a reward scheme should not be allowed to become too familiar. The rumoured plans of a digital Clubcard later this year is a great example of how updating an existing programme, which will allow customers to tailor their rewards, can secure interest.
