when i went to 7-11 last friday to buy my hotdog sandwich, the cashier asked me if i already had an everyday rewards card or if i would like to get one. being a sucker for these type of rewards card, i agreed to get one. for Php 10.00, i got this card.
essentially, this is a card which you present to the counter each time you make a purchase at your nearest 7-11 store, and then you will earn points for your purchases. you earn 1 point for every Php 50.00 (single or accumulated) that you spend. you can also earn additional points by activating your card, completing your profile, and linking your facebook account. point balances can be checked either thru sms of by logging in to your account.
you can also check the website to see their rewards catalog. you can see how much points are needed for a certain item. when you want to redeem something, you can also do it in the site or you can do it via sms. you will then receive a reference number which you will be presenting to the store cashier when you make your claim.
after i had bought the card, i repeatedly tried to activate/register it that same day, but unfortunately my sms won’t go through the number indicated. yesterday, i saw a post at one of the stores that they encountered some technical difficulties that is why my registration didn’t go through. they have now changed the numbers, or you can likewise activate your card via the website.
i think this is a good thing for those who frequent 7-11 for quick snacks and meals. at least there is something that you can get out of your “pricey” purchases at this convenience store.
