Have you noticed how your shopping style has changed over recent years? Perhaps it hasn’t changed at all, but according to studies conducted by Barclaycard and Brunel University the nation has changed their shopping strategy over the last five years.
In years gone by shoppers were loyal to brands and stores, these days all shoppers fall into one of four groups, and these groups are not limited to local or internet shoppers, the same techniques and traits are clearly visible across all shopping avenues.
The four groups are:
- The Bargain Hunter Gatherer
- The Profit Prophet
- The Screen Saver
- The High Street Pounder
Knowing what type of shopper you are has its benefits, like being able to change if you don’t really like the results, or realizing the most efficient way to maximize your shopping experience whether it is online or in the local store. According to the quiz, I’m a ‘Screen Saver’, which is pretty apt as I am a bit of a geek and spend a lot of time online!
Barclaycard has realized that every type of shopper has a collection of loyalty cards, and the rewards on the cards are not used on frivolous treats or special items, but rather on making your household income stretch further from one pay day to the next.
With this in mind Barclaycard has created a new card called the Freedom Rewards card which offers you double points on all purchases at petrol stations and supermarkets as well as an online shop where you can purchase items at discounted prices from popular brands.
