Loyalty Program

A program that encourages customers to shop consistently at the same place. Generally, a loyalty program issues a card (much like a credit card) to a customer, who swipes the card before she pays for her goods. The card identifies the customer and makes the purchase eligible for a discount or some other benefit. Loyalty programs are most common at the retail level.
