The number of Members who have redeemed Points increased by more than 80 percent year over year.

We have redesigned the user experience and added exciting new apps to the platform, increasing engagement on by an order of magnitude. As we serve Members better and they engage with more experiences within our shopping system, we see that they also spend more money shopping.

We are creating the membership shopping system of the future – an experience that combines rewarding, personalized, convenient and social experiences.
•Business Partners: We have brought partners like 1-800-FLOWERS, VISA and Burger King into our ecosystem, and we have expanded our relationship with Lands’ End, and Sears Hometown and Outlet Stores (“SHO”).
