Are you prepared for Cyber Monday? Have you searched the advertisements and narrowed down your favorite deals? Will you have a comfy sweater, a strong cup of coffee and your credit card waiting on your desk tomorrow morning?
Before you begin shopping make certain you have everything in place. Do you know what you want to buy and how much you are willing to spend? Do you have a list of coupon and promo codes available for your favorite stores?
Have you signed up for loyalty programs? If not here is a list of the best ones out there. Sign up for these before you start shopping and save even more!
Macy’s Plenti Program
Macy’s has teamed up with Exxon/Mobile, AT&T and Rite Aid with a program called Plenti. You will earn Plenti Points every time you shop at Macy’s. Once you register your card and reach a balance of at least 200 points you will be able to use Plenti points for extra savings. Make sure to check your account and activate all Macy’s offers. These targeted offers will save you even more. For example, this week some shoppers are reporting offers to earn 10X the points on qualifying purchases during Macy’s Cyber Week. That means you can earn ten points per dollar!
Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards
The Kohl’s loyalty program is called Kohl’s Yes2You Rewards. Every time you spend $100 at Kohl’s you will receive a coupon for $5 off. These coupons are awarded at the beginning of the month and are typically valid until the end of the same month in which they were rewarded. After you sign up you may receive additional bonuses from the Yes2You Rewards program including a birthday present and extra reward offers throughout the year.
Sephora Beauty Insiders
If you intend to purchase makeup or other beauty products this Cyber Monday then sign up for the Beauty Insiders program at Sephora. You will earn one point for every dollar you spend. These points can be accumulated and cashed out for beauty samples. You will also receive a free gift on your birthday and multiple coupons throughout the year for further savings.
Through the JCPenney Reward program you will earn one point for every $2 you spend. Once your account total reaches 200 points you will receive a $10 rewards certificate that can be used on any future purchase. These points remain active in your account as long as you remain an active JCPenney customer. To keep those points you need to make one purchase at JCPenney every calendar year.
My Best Buy Rewards
Do you plan to shop for electronics on Cyber Monday? If so, make certain you are a member of the My Best Buy Rewards program. Through this program you will earn 0.5 points per $1 spent on qualifying purchases at Best Buy. When you reach 250 points Best Buy will send you a $5 reward certificate which can be used in store or online. The more you spend at Best Buy the more you’ll earn. If you spend $1,500 per calendar year you will qualify for Elite Status and will begin earning 1 full point for each $1 you spend plus you’ll earn free shipping with no minimum purchase amount!
Before you shop at any of your favorite stores inquire about loyalty programs that can help you earn discounts on future shopping trips. Let stores reward you for your continued patronage. Especially on Cyber Monday, a day when you may spend a good deal of money!
