Scene+ Members Can Now Earn Points at Home Hardware
Scene+, the Canadian loyalty program, is partnering with Home Hardware stores across Canada. When shoppers use their Scene+ card at Home Hardware, they can earn more Scene+ points on their next home improvement purchase.
"We are incredibly excited that Scene+ is now available at Home Hardware locations across the country," says Kevin Macnab, President and CEO of Home Hardware Stores Limited. "Our Dealers are always looking for ways to bring value to their customers and now with Home Hardware joining Scene+, Canadians can instantly redeem points for the tools and products needed to complete their home improvement projects."
Scene+ members will earn 50 points for every $50 spent in a single in-store or online Home Hardware purchase when using their Scene+ Loyalty Card. Cardholders can earn double the points for every dollar spent at Home Hardware when paying with their Scotiabank® Scene+ Visa* Card. When using their Scene+ Loyalty Card in tandem with their Scotiabank® Scene+ Visa* Card, shoppers will earn both offers when they purchase from Home Hardware in-store or online.
For every 1,000 Scene+ points earned, cardholders can redeem a $10-off reward that can be used on any purchase at Home Hardware stores or homehardware.ca.
