With consumers trying to save money in any way that they can and merchants trying to retain loyal customers, merchants rewards program are popping up everywhere. Cindy and Tricia surveyed Sunshine Rewards members to see which were their favorite merchant programs that you can combine with Sunshine Rewards coupons and cash back.
* What are the point of the programs? Some merchants make it easy to learn about their programs while others seem to hide them.
* Traditional cash programs where you get a percentage back from every purchase to spend later on the site. Great examples are drugstore.com dollars, eBay bucks, and Football Fanatics.
* Points programs where you get points for purchases and can later convert them to credits on the merchants site. Most popular included Best Buy Rewards Zone and 1-800-Flowers Fresh Rewards. A new one to Sunshine Rewards is SubscriptionAgent.com.
* Loyalty programs where you do not get get free merchandise credits but you might get even better deals. Prime examples are the Shoebuy 10% coupon for repeat buyers and the Sephora Beauty Insider program.
