US Retail Loyalty Programs: Decoding Consumer Behavior To Build Lasting Relationships

What's Inside

Loyalty programs play a vital role in driving customer engagement, customer retention and lifetime value, ultimately increasing sales and profits. In a March 2024 Coresight Research survey, a net 39.5% of surveyed US consumers reported spending more with a brand or retailer since joining their loyalty program.

How can US brands and retailers gain a competitive edge in long-term customer loyalty? We analyze proprietary survey findings to uncover what US consumers want from loyalty programs, and discuss the opportunities for retailers to drive engagement and sales through AI (artificial intelligence), gamification, experiential rewards and more.

  • Consumer changes in spending levels since joining a loyalty program
