- The survey estimates that UK consumers own around £1 billion in loyalty card points
- 37% of Britons say they are anxious before Christmas
- More than seven million people started saving for the holidays in September
- Only one in five checkpoints per week and one in ten never achieved
Don’t waste your time rummaging in the back of the sofa for lost pennies and pounds to beat the vacation cost of living crisis.
You may already be sitting on the source of the money you saved without even thinking about it.
A new study suggests that UK consumers own around £1 billion in loyalty card points – on average around £19 per adult.
Three-quarters of respondents describe themselves as “sophisticated shoppers” – and even more participate in loyalty programs.

However, only one in five checks loyalty points weekly, and one in ten never checks the value of points.
Only 24 percent of people surveyed in the Co-op survey will use their loyalty card points saved this year. But most are still afraid of being able to afford Christmas.
The research found that more than 37 per cent of UK consumers said they were already nervous ahead of the holiday season.
The study found that more than seven million people started saving for Christmas in September.
More than 80 percent of those surveyed admitted they treated their grocery purchases differently in the run-up to Christmas, with 25 percent now buying fewer branded products. The research comes after supermarkets rolled out Christmas products early to help consumers ease the cost of living crisis.
Marks & Spencer released their entire collection of decorations online in September to help spread the cost of Christmas.
Some retailers have decided to remove the minimum spend on online products and expand their return policies.
Sainsbury’s has revised its return policy to assure customers that they can shop ahead of time and know that unwanted gifts can be returned. Customers have until January 31 to return unwanted items – the usual deadline is 30 days.
John Lewis extended the deadline to return to January 28.
