Supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsbury’s and Lidl all offer reward programmes to shoppers. Asda has brought back its loyalty card to get shoppers saving money in time for Christmas.
Those who shop at Asda can start saving now every time they visit by signing up for a card.
While Asda does not have a general loyalty card scheme, the Christmas savers card is introduced each year to help shoppers organise the holiday.
However, those hoping to save must act quickly as they only have until November 15 to build up reward.
How does it work?
Customers can pick up a savers card in-store and register it online to protect the savings.
Each time they shop in a store, they can add a few pounds extra into their savings account.
Depending on how much you save, Asda tops up the account with bonuses to spend on Christmas stock.
Shoppers get £1 added when they save £30, £3 when they save £80, £6 when they save £130, £9 when they save £180 and £12 when saving £230.
Those who put away more than £280 will receive the top bonus of £15 from the supermarket.
All the funds earned before the November deadline can be spent like money in stores in December.
The funds can be put toward Christmas essentials such as food, decorations or festive clothing.
A statement on the Asda website reads: “Take the pressure off December by spreading the cost of Christmas throughout the year with the Asda Christmas Savings Card.
“The idea of the Asda Christmas Savings Card is a card and key fob, you can keep a card in your purse or wallet to top-up a few pounds here and there with your weekly shop throughout the year, and give the key fob to another family member who can do the same.
“The cards are linked so all the savings will stay in one central place.
“When you come to spend your savings and bonus, you can do so in-store at any of our checkouts, including Self Checkout and Scan & Go and also on George.com.”
The retailer explained shoppers can spend their savings online or in-store.
