Loyalty programs for luxury stores

Loyalty programs often take the form of cumulative discount programs, but this is not something that buyers of luxury goods value, and not at all what allows a luxury retailer to increase their profits.

Luxury shoppers love a special, personalized service, they seek to enjoy the shopping process. Therefore, it is necessary for them to develop loyalty programs based on impressions and memorable experiences.
