FSA Perks – Rewards Program Overview

With the FSA Perks rewards program, FSAstore.com was able to migrate to points-based promotions instead of cash discounts.
For example, FSAstore.com could identify customers who had not shopped in six months. For these “at-risk” customers, a win-back promotion was delivered that offered bonus points for making a purchase within a week. This promotion proved effective at engaging customers who were likely to be lost.

Engagement with Rewards Program

FSAstore.com used the rewards program to increase customer engagement. For example, a website feature named FSA Tracker enabled customers to input their FSA deadlines and receive email reminders to notify them when their spending deadlines were approaching. Unfortunately, customers were not utilizing this feature. To encourage customers to provide these details, FSAstore.com used rewards points as an incentive. Bonus points were awarded to customers who entered their spending deadlines. This resulted in a noticeable increase in FSA Tracker use.

Promotion Using Rewards Points Instead Of Discounts

  • Winback Promotion: Reward at-risk customers with bonus points when they buy within a limited period.
  • Redeemed But Not Purchased: Target customers who exchanged points for coupons but did not make purchases.
  • Sweepstakes: Sweepstakes activity around the shopping season to encourage more participation and engagement in the program.
