Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 31, 2012
Polaris Marketing Research Inc. announced today the findings from their latest survey of online Americans, supported by Research Now for data collection and analysis: Majority of Americans participate in five or more customer loyalty programs.
All 1,222 respondents were asked how many customer loyalty programs they participate in with five or more loyalty programs being the majority. Although men and women show similar percentages of participation, women and men show significant differences in the types of loyalty programs. Grocery loyalty programs had the highest amount of participation for both genders, but women were significantly more likely to participate in grocery and retail loyalty programs. Men were more likely to participate in loyalty programs related to services (auto, rental, and hotels), travel, and credit cards.
Further women were significantly more likely to use their loyalty cards “all the time” and men were significantly more likely to use their loyalty cards “sometimes”.
“While both men and women equally participate in loyalty programs, women tend to use it more frequently. Women are significantly more likely than men to use loyalty programs “all the time” for grocery and retail shopping. In fact, women were more likely to use all loyalty programs mentioned more than men,” said Polaris President Jan Carlson.
The number of loyalty programs men and women participate in did not differ by gender, but the types of loyalty programs and usage of the program did.
