Shop Your Way(SM) Introduces New Rewards Partners Offering Members More Points at More Places BURGER KING®, Groupon®, Avis Car Rental®, Hearst Magazines and Others Join Shop Your Way's Expanding Partners Program
HOFFMAN ESTATES, Ill., July 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Shop Your Way, a free membership program and social shopping community with tens of millions of members, has announced a major expansion of its rewards program with the addition of more than 50 brand-name partners. Once the exclusive membership program of Sears®, Kmart® and Lands' End, Shop Your Way has expanded to include more partners in more categories, making it possible for members to earn rewards through more places than ever.
"Members are already shopping for many of these products and services and now they can be rewarded for it," said Eric Jaffe, senior vice president of Shop Your Way. "Our goal is to make it easy to earn rewards wherever you shop, and our growing partner network shows we are poised to deliver."
Shop Your Way partners include BURGER KING® restaurants, Groupon, Avis Car Rental, Hearst Magazines, Budget®, 1-800-FLOWERS®, Red Envelope, LifeLock®, ScoreBig, and Shoney's. Examples of everyday discounts and rewards include $25-$50 in points back on services; up to 10 percent back in points on events and entertainment tickets; and two-percent or more in points at thousands of restaurants.
Partners also frequently present limited-time member promotions, above their regular offers. For example, BURGER KING® restaurants just launched a limited-time "Burger Back" promotion that gives members up to $10 ($12 for VIPs) in Shop Your Way points on one BURGER KING® restaurant purchase using their eligible Visa or MasterCard (through July 31, 2014, may only be redeemed once per member).
"It's like getting one entire Burger King meal back in free points," Jaffe said.
BURGER KING® restaurants are among the partners contributing to Shop Your Way's expanded rewards offering via the Card Link program; members register their eligible Visa® or MasterCard® debit or credit cards one time, then automatically earn points every time they make a qualifying purchase with a participating partner. Rewards earned from either program can then be redeemed on millions of products at ShopYourWay.com.
"At Burger King, we're always looking for new ways to deliver value to our customers," said Samuel Heath, Director of Market Intelligence at Burger King. "Partnering with Shop Your Way makes it even easier to choose Burger King. It's 'great fire-grilled burgers – with a bonus.'"
Additional opportunities for members to save and earn include: Groupon – Members simply purchase any Groupon deal featured on ShopYourWay.com/Groupon – including all of the same localized offers they're accustomed to seeing – and they'll automatically receive five percent back in Shop Your Way points; and Hearst Magazines, which is offering specially-priced one-year subscriptions to popular magazines like Good Housekeeping, Woman's Day, Cosmopolitan, Esquire, and Car & Driver and more at ShopYourWay.com/Mags. Plus, members earn 4,999 points ($4.99) for each subscription purchased.
