In case you missed it... There's two different rewards programs that my customers can choose to participate in. One is offered by CTMH, one is offered by me.
Want to know the differences and which will suit you best? Read on!
It comes down to a few things.
Do you want to pay a fee to join with a yearly renewal fee?
Do you want to be rewarded for online only purchases?
Do you want to be rewarded for every purchase and every session booking you make?
Let's start with Preferred Rewards.
Preferred Rewards is run and offered solely by Creating with Kara Davies.
Program started: July 2019.
Type of rewards program: punch card based, punches are earned for workshop sessions/retreat bookings AND for purchases made in person AND purchases made online via my website.
Sign Up Fee: no sign up fees, ever.
Sign Up Bonus: 1 additional punch.
Bookings: One punch issued for each scrapbooking session booked. After 5 scrapbook punches, the 6th session is free (up to $20). If your chosen session is over $20, you pay the difference. One punch issued for each cardmaking session booked or Card Kit Club subscription purchased. After 5 cardmaking punches, your 6th Card Buffet or Card Kit Club subscription is free.
Purchasing: Purchase $30 from me, get a punch. After you've spent $150, get a free gift. Purchases made on my website, as part of a group order, and from my studio (in person/cash & carry) all count toward punches.
Do rewards expire: Yes, if you choose to sign up as VIP Customer* or if you choose to cancel your Preferred Rewards membership.
Earning example: Sign up and make a purchase of $45 from my studio. You'll get 1 punch for signing up and 1 punch for your purchase for a total of 2 punches. Sign up and make a session booking. You'll get 1 punch for signing up and 1 punch for your session booking for a total of 2 punches.
Extra rewards: one extra punch for session booking or Card Kit Club subscription or purchase made in your birthday month, advance notice of new workshop schedules and bookings, Card Kit Club subscription discounts, bonus gift at Craft Retreat, and more as offered by Creating with Kara Davies.
