Saks Fifth Avenue is making big changes to its loyalty program, including automatic, free membership to SaksFirst, free in-store and online shipping for cardholders, and access to special and private events. To celebrate all the changes, the department store will also kick off "5 Days of Firsts" at the Manhattan flagship on the week of January 28th.
The highlight is definitely on Monday, when Saks will offer free $100 gift cards to the first 500 customers who show their Saks card. Tuesday's incentive isn't as exciting—it's free yogurt on the fifth floor, for those who claim the offer via Facebook—but on Wednesday things pick back up ?free same-day delivery in NYC for Saks cardholders. On Thursday, those same cardholders will receive 1000 bonus points on their first purchase of the day, and on Friday, cardholders will get double points on their beauty purchases.
And for the entire week, anyone who signs up for a new SaksFirst card gets a free $25 gift card. Our advice? Stop by with your store card on Monday to cash in on that 100 bucks—just make sure you get there bright and early.
