WAYNE, N.J., Oct. 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Toys"R"Us, Inc. today announced a series of exciting loyalty incentives shoppers can take advantage of this holiday season through its 35 million member-strong Rewards"R"Us® program, as well as expanded advantages for new and existing "R"Us® Credit Cardholders, whether shopping at Toys"R"Us® and Babies"R"Us® stores nationwide or online at Toysrus.com and Babiesrus.com. The retailer continues to bolster its loyalty incentives as it reaffirms its commitment to its most devoted customers, while also giving new shoppers compelling reasons to shop the brand.
The company's point-based loyalty program, Rewards"R"Us, was created to thank its best and most frequent customers for their patronage and offer them additional opportunities to find great values and enjoy special services. The program will be enhanced this holiday season through three unique incentives: "R"Us Credit Card Super Saturdays, Double-Wish-ious Wednesdays and a first-ever, private pre-Black Friday incentive. While loyalty members enjoy unique perks and benefits throughout the year, in addition to accruing points for purchases – two points earned for every one dollar spent on most Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us purchases in-store and online* – shoppers will delight in increasing their loyalty earnings during the months of November and December.
"All year long, we continually seek new ways to engage with and reward our most loyal customers. Especially during the holidays, our goal is to provide consumers with even more compelling reasons to shop our brand, while helping them fulfill the wishes of the children in their lives," said Amy Avitabile, Vice President, Integrated Marketing Communications, Toys"R"Us, U.S. "Our enhanced loyalty incentives are just some of the ways we are showing our appreciation of our most faithful shoppers – both long-standing and new."
"R"Us Credit Card Super Saturdays
Beginning November 2, and continuing every Saturday through December 21, "R"Us Credit Cardholders will be eligible to receive 10%** off their Toys"R"Us and/or Babies"R"Us purchases when they use their "R"Us Credit Card in-store. Shoppers who elect to open an account during the exclusive promotional period can also receive an additional 15%** off their purchase. Making the deal even more enticing – it is stackable with other offers – granting shoppers maximum ways to save this holiday season. Those who wish to apply for an "R"Us Credit Card can simply visit any "R"Us store nationwide or Toysrus.com/rewardsrus.
New this holiday season, Rewards"R"Us and "R"Us Credit Cardholders are eligible to earn double reward points every Wednesday in November and December (November 6 – December 25), on all in-store and online purchases at Toys"R"Us and Babies"R"Us. While Rewards"R"Us members can receive four points per dollar spent during these promotional days, those who make purchases using their "R"Us Credit Card can receive eight points per dollar*** (500 points earned = $5 in Rewards"R"Us Reward Dollars).
