Supermarket giant Asda has launched their first loyalty rewards program. It comes at a critical time in the cost of living crisis, as millions of people across the UK are grappling with rapidly rising food, fuel and energy costs.
But how can this new plan help you as food prices skyrocket? Asda promises to reward customers with “pounds not points” that they can use for a grocer in the future. The scheme was tested in 16 stores last year and proved to be a success, with the chain rolling it out in all 633 UK stores. Asda Rewards is now available nationwide.
To get started with Asda Rewards, you need to download the Asda Rewards app on your mobile device. You can download it from the Apple App Store or Google Play Store. Downloading is easy and fast, which means you can start receiving your rewards quickly.
When you shop online or in store, you can earn Asda Pounds. Simply scan barcodes on the app when you shop in a physical store. To make money online, make sure you are logged in to your account at checkout. The Asda Board will be accumulated and added to the Cash Pot. This Cash Pot can then be converted into coupons for cash from your future grocery stores.
Rewards can be earned not only from shopping at Asda but also from completing ‘missions’ or purchasing Star Products. Quests are added to the app regularly and include spending above a certain amount on your visit or buying certain items from a particular department.
For example, the quest might be to spend £50 on a given day to earn £1.50. Similarly, you can buy 5 health and beauty products for £2, or 10 pieces of fruit and vegetables for £1.5. Quests change frequently, but you can do them without even realizing it!
The Star Products also change frequently and include some of Asda’s own brand and branded items. When you purchase a Star Product, you can get an instant boost i.e. 10% of the item price. For example, if you spend £1 on a Star Product, you will get 10 pence instantly into your Cash Pot.
You can find Star Products on the Asda Rewards app. If you are shopping online, the Star Product will be highlighted. Not only will you get your money back on your purchase of a Star Product, but it may also be part of a special offer or discount.
