And like any wedding guest who wants to look their best in a room full of dresses, House of Fraser have drawn our attention to a Recognition event from today, Wed 14th May (Happy Birthday, NKOTB Danny Wood) until Sunday 18th May (the day after NKOTB Jordan Knight's birthday)...perhaps to try to cajole customer's away from the Debenhams Summer Spectacular event? Who knows what John Lewis or Selfridges are up to?
I'm a fan of the direct percentage off back in my purse, however, and do not own a store card. House of Fraser's event seems to reward bonus points to customers who shop using their Recognition Mastercard, although if you have the standard Recognition loyalty card these may be applied to you, too. I haven't yet cottoned on to this loyalty scheme, as, frankly, you can't beat Boots Advantage card or Tesco Clubcard for their rewards (This morning I actually started looking forward to Autumn's Boots madness when I realised my Clarins exfoliator is only a third full!). Terms and conditions of the Recognition event are there and on the House of Fraser website. I am not a financial whiz and have no authority on financial matters.
So, dear shoppers, please shop responsibly this week (and beyond, obviously), whether you prefer a discount as I do, or offer your own loyalty. But, again, do let me know if you spot a bargain!
