Getting Your Free Loyalty Accounts
Nothing prevents you from signing up to (almost) every single loyalty program in the world right now, except perhaps your availability of time!
The majority are free for the reasons mentioned in the previous section: companies want low barriers to entry and high rewards for these programs so you remain a loyal customer for years to come.
To sign up, you’ll simply need to know which programs you’ll be targeting, then find the appropriate links. Be sure when signing up to put all the information into an easily accessible file. Store all this information for quick access when you need it!
