Challenged with a lack of insight into the actual wearer of their apparel and accessories, AEO launched a non-tender rewards program to complement their highly successful proprietary credit card program. In one year the database shifted from 70% aged 40-54 to 13-34. The AE All Access Pass and its progressive digital evolution became a program many retail operators emulate to this day. The program annually delivered over $100,000,000 incremental lift and informed expansion with the Aerie brand.
Beyond informing the merchant planning team to optimize allocation/flow, the power of insight drove new store real estate planning, and credit card innovation.
Merchandise accumulation model was tested against traditional points for spend. Created a differentiated earn/ burn solution that drove traffic during best margin, lowest markdown periods
AEO was at the cutting edge of Mobile engagement with opt-in from their Millenials and Gen Z buyers. Social programs speaking to giving back through Live Your Life placed the AEO AAP member at the center of digital engagement.
Events were scheduled throughout the year with special access for members offering their own live concert from a cutting edge band, holiday shopping events with free merchandise and bonus earning events online to drive omni-channel growth.
An iconic department store chain with over 4,400 doors and 8 brands required a coalition loyalty program that could recognize and reward both its primary, as well as cross-brand, loyalists. Historically reliant on a proprietary credit card plus co-brand offering, the opportunity was there to reward all shoppers plus create an equity relationship that would lower attrition. The power of data and shopper insight was dramatic. The program acquired over 150,000,000 members, shifted markdowns to more profitable rewards, exponentially lifted omni-channel behavior and lifted marketing ROI by 20%!
Foundation started with understanding shopper behavior, attrition issues, role of loyalty to retain best as well as newly identified shoppers and the power of data to drive primary business as well as venture partnerships with new revenue generation.
Evaluated loyalty platforms and CRM solutions at global scale, negotiated “skin in the game” from providers and then implemented first time ever real-time CRM/Loyalty integration for each brand and cross-brand 24/7/365.
A first in retail achieved real-time recognition and reward across departments and store brands, and in any channel.
Based on performance the program was judged the best omni-channel recognition and reward program in North America for several consecutive years.
Casino players are a cruise line’s most valuable guests.
