Cultivate Loyalty

Loyalty program benefits have a high derived importance for consumers (Boston Consulting Group 2013 survey). 

One of the most basic loyalty programs is the “club card”, often inviting the holder to a free cup of coffee after a certain number of purchases (typically ten but sometimes as low as five).

This type of card is quite popular, in part because of the ease of implementation – printed business-sized cards are economical and very easy to hand out to customers buying coffee.

Travel mugs are also a popular way to offer loyalty benefits, perhaps with discounted refills. Millennials, the growing 18-33 year-old market, are quite fond of loyalty programs, with 77% participating in a loyalty reward program (NACS April 2014).
