How to Design a Membership Rewards Card That Customers Want

Is your membership rewards program floundering, or maybe you don't even have one yet? Companies like American Express, AT&T, and even Marriott offer rewards to their clients. By offering clients an incentive to use your product or service, they are more likely to continue to come to you - and even send people your way.

When you start putting together your membership program you will need to think about a few different things:

  • How will you advertise your membership rewards program?
  • Will you offer a tiered program with different reward categories?
  • How will clients accrue points in your program?
  • What will your membership rewards cards look like?

Why does a membership card design matter?

The card design will not only draw people's attention, but will encourage them to actually keep the card with them! Wallets and purses get filled with receipts, appointment cards and various membership cards. What makes your card unique enough that people will actually want to carry it around with them?

Here are some great examples of membership rewards card designs:

Custom Shape and Die Cut Business Cards

Camera Shaped Writable Membership Card

Custom shape or die cut cards, such as this camera-shaped card, are a fun way to stand out. When people look through their wallets to find your card, customs shapes are not only easier to find, but they also encourage use.

Custom Cards that list Member Benefits 

Membership Benefits Cards

Listing the member benefits on the card itself not only helps your clients, but also your employees. There is no question about what the membership program offers. This is especially useful if you update your program or have different membership levels.

Faux Chip Cards
