Every little helps

Advantages: Do get some money back, easy to use, easy to get
Disadvantages: Many places cheaper
I thought this was a relatively new concept that I'd picked up a few months ago but have since found out that it has actually been around for a while, would have been useful in the time when I shopped there a lot!
It is very easy to get a card. I got a form because the person serving me asked if I would like a waterstones card, but I'm sure they would be happy to give you one if you decided to ask for it. It is just a form with your basic details on such as your address and email, it doesn't take very long to fill in and it is important that you do this so you can get all the different offers through via email. In addition to this, there is a plastic card attached to the form which is unusual to get the actual card straight away, quite convenient.
Everytime you shop in waterstones you use the card, just hand it over when making your purchases and the sales assistant will put your points onto it for you so its nothing too hard. For every £1 you spend you get 3 points and each point is worth 1p, so for example if you bought a book that was £6.99 then you should earn 18p back. This isn't really a fantastic sum of money, but getting 3% back is better than nothing so every little helps really. While it is good if you are getting something anyway, don't go out of the way to shop at waterstones because of the card - I don't use this a lot because I often find it many times cheaper to just shop on amazon.
Summary: Getting a bit back
