OAK BROOK, Ill., January 3, 2013 – Ace Hardware, the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the industry, proudly announces the launch of Instant Savings, a program exclusively for Ace Rewards members that allows them to receive valuable discounts instantly, right at the register.
No longer will Ace Rewards members have to redeem rebates through the mail and wait the four to six weeks it typically takes for those to be processed. Ace’s most valuable customers can now receive Instant Savings on their purchases right at checkout.
Customers can find the featured Instant Savings offers by looking for the Instant Savings logo on products advertised in Ace’s circulars and throughout the store at their local neighborhood Ace Hardware.
To receive Instant Savings offers, customers must simply present their Ace Rewards card at checkout or ask the cashier to lookup their Ace Rewards number by providing their phone number or last name and five-digit zip code.
“There is no doubt that The Helpful Place is getting a lot more helpful to our best customers,” said John Surane, Senior Vice President, Merchandising, Marketing, Advertising & Paint, Ace Hardware Corporation. “We have made it even easier for our customers to shop with Ace by delivering more value and convenience for them. We constantly look for ways to add value for our customers, and Instant Savings is a major new exclusive benefit to our Ace Rewards loyalty program that does just that.”
Instant Savings is just one of the benefits of being an Ace Rewards member. The program is free and will continue to provide exclusive member benefits such as 10 points for every $1 spent, a $5 Reward for every 2,500 points earned, money-saving coupons and sale reminders, along with helpful tips and content.
