Sainsburys Bank is supporting the use of reward schemes for credit card customers, saying they can help save money.
With over 8 out of 10 credit card users saying they will probably be spending less than last year on their cards the providers are looking at ways to incentivise their customers to use them, and reward schemes have proved very successful. The Nectar scheme is typical of the new approach to customers say Sainsburys Bank. Such cards provide real benefits to users, with the ability to save money on other items they use in their lives and ultimately reducing their costs.
The other point about reward schemes said the Sainsburys Bank spokesman is that they differentiate the credit card from many others. The usual 0 percent interest offers are everywhere so something different and real is the best way to attract users.
