2. Loyalty

What is your loyalty rewards programme?

Our points policy rewards you. When you register with us, you’ll receive points to save up and receive money off future purchases.

Does it cost to join?

No. Simply register an account with us and you’re ready to start earning straight away!

How does the point system work?

For every £1 spent, you will earn one point.
Each point is worth £0.01 off your purchase. For example, if you have 100 points, you can take £1 off your total.
When making a purchase, you can use up to 1000 points. However, the points used must not exceed 30% of the order value after any discounts have been applied.
For example, if you have 1,500 points (£15 value) and your order came to £50 after applying a discount code. In this case, 1,000 points (£10 value) will be deducted, and your new order total will be £40. Your remaining 500 points will remain in your account.
But if your order value was £20, only 600 points (£6 value) will be deducted, as 30% of £20 is £6.

When can I use my Shop Star rewards points and how do I apply them?

You can use your rewards points after your first order. Simply tick the box to apply your points to that order.
You must be logged in in order to collect points.

Are my points transferable and how do I check how many I have?

Shop Star points are not transferable nor are they redeemable for cash or anything other than a discount on Shop Checking your points is easy - simply log into your account and they will be on your main information screen.

Do loyalty points expire?

Points expire after a year of earning them. Points are subject to surrender upon use and will also be surrendered if purchased product is returned. Please note, Shop Star UK reserves the right to change or discontinue our points policy without prior notice.
