Have you got your High Street loyalty card........charity ones of course!!

Following on from my Give More post previously, I thought I would share with you how I show my loyalty AND get rewarded for it through my local charity shops.
I have used the Sue Ryder loyalty card scheme for years now and for every £5 you spend in their shop, you receive a stamp-collect 10 and you get a whopping £5 to spend on anything in their shop!!
For a die hard charity shopper like myself, this is a must have in my purse and I always seem to get at least 3-5 freebies a year!! I would really recommend you sign up for one-if you can't get in to a shop, then you can apply online for one here
 
Another loyalty card in my purse is from the Salvation Army which not only does a similar scheme but it also rewards you if you take in your unwanted items too! I've got all my stamps on my card now, so my next visit will be to choose my free item!!
 
 
A couple of days ago I also used up my stamped up Sue Ryder loyalty card so I thought I would show you my latest buys. I chose this Gap 1969 denim shirt for £3.75:
 

 
 
I also chose a Marks and Spencer dark olive and black snakeskin digital print blouse for also £3.75:
 

 
So both items came to £7.50 and  with my loyalty card discount I only paid £2.50 for both items!! That is what I call rewarding loyalty and these cards are a real incentive to shop at your local charity shops as often as possible.
 
 
Do you hold any loyalty cards for your local charity shops-if not, why not sign up as soon as you can!!

Hmmmmmmm. I'm unaware of any such loyalty card discounts. One store I shop at now and then gives 10% off with a receipt from one's last visit....

The snakeskin shirt is unique. bet you'll find some great ways to wear it - seems it could be dressy or casual depending.....:)

I have the Sally army one! They have to keep giving me new ones though, because I keep losing them! How's you?x

I had no idea Charity shops did this! I love that Denim shirt, what a classic!

I remember you mentioning this before. It must be a Southern thing as it's not available in Sue Ryder in the Midlands, the staff looked at me like I was mental when I asked! x

wow I never even realised that charity shops had loyalty schemes. Definitely well worth signing up to!

That's a great idea, I'll sign up too! I am back to blogging (my nickname before was Atelier) and I am very glad to see that you kept the blog alive :), it's good to get back to see your bargains!
