Asos A-List: Tiered Rewards Scheme
UK fashion e-tailer Asos has launched a tiered loyalty programme dubbed the A-List, offering a sliding scale of spending privileges. Shoppers can enrol after placing just one order for any item. For every £1 ($1.40) spent, members receive five points, with 500 equating to a £5 ($7) voucher, valid for six months.
Playfully incentivised, the scheme is divided into four entry points, according to the shopper's level of spending. Entry Level members (newcomers to the scheme) must spend £80 ($111) to reach 400 points in order to graduate to Level 1. This entitles them to rewards including two double-points days per year, a 15% birthday discount and one free next-day delivery.
To graduate to Level 2, shoppers need to spend £200 ($279) or 1,000 points in one transaction – granting them two more double-points days, a second free next-day delivery, and early access to sales, in addition to the Level 1 perks. To reach the highest level, they need to spend £600 ($836), the equivalent of 3,000 points – earning four triple-points days and three additional next-day deliveries, as well as other exclusive offers.
Shoppers receive their points 29 days after their initial purchase, assuming there are no returns.
