It’s new year’s day and as tradition goes in my family, it’s a day of family fun, braai-ing and loads of laughs. Despite being away from home, I will be sticking to tradition and with Robindale and Ferndale Spar’s Sparbucks programme and their “My Spar loyaltykard”, I have all the more reason to.
Living right around the corner from Ferndale Spar, I decided to register for the Sparbucks programme. All I had to do was to go to their kiosk counter where I was requested to fill in my details, including my name, address, email address and contact details and immediately thereafter, I could use my card to swipe on my purchases and redeem loyalty points instantly.
With the “My Spar loyaltykard”, cardholders gain special privileges including specials on selected goods only for cardholders.
The only downside about this programme is that, because it is currently being run as a pilot, Ferndale and Robindale Spar’s in Johannesburg are the only one’s running with it, however, if you are in the vicinity, make use of the programme and reap many great rewards.
With the programme,earn points when shopping at participating retailers and have access to exclusive deals, competitions and promotions and save money while you’re at it. You can manage and redeem your points online and the exclusive deals activate at the till instantly.
Receive emails and SMS’s notifying you or their latest deals, specials and promotions and never miss out on a saving.
Saving on your grocery spend has just become easier. Earn 1 Sparbuck for each R1 you spend and earn 10 000 Sparbucks before making your first redemption. When redeeming, every 100 Sparbucks earned is equivalent to R1 for you to spend on your earnings. Redemptions are done in store at the terminal. To check up on your balance, simply visit their site.
Now I can easily and happily go do my new year’s day braai shopping, knowing that what I’ll be gaining goes beyond simply my purchases, but I get rewarded at the same time.
Here’s to hoping that the Sparbucks programme rolls out to other Spar’s too, so that you can reap the benefits just as I have.
