The Body Shop: LYB loves green...

Are you an LYB (Love Your Body) member of The Body Shop?  It's The Body Shop's club with a membership card that rewards you with discounts, free gifts and access to different perks and privileges. I've been a member of LYB since 2009 but I always lose my ID card.  Yes, I am "burara" like that. (laughs)
Now, The Body Shop decided to put an end to plastic membership cards and adopt a technology that enables its members to access their LYB membership anytime, using an iPad, iPhone or iTouch.  Android users need not worry, as it will be available for you too in a few months.


PVC is the most used material for membership, loyalty, or credit cards. On average 36 grams of CO2 is generated for every plastic card produced. Globally, over 10 billion plastic cards are produced every year for marketing purposes. Hence, 50 million kilograms of plastic waste and 200,000 tons of CO2 emissions are generated. To counter the CO2 effects of card production, we need at least 9.2 million trees.

To avail of your virtual membership card, all you need is an iPhone, iPad or iTouch and download a free app called Perkd.  You just sign up and search for The Body Shop's LYB card, have it scanned and voila, you can now use it anytime, anywhere...no need for that extra plastic card on your wallet.



Yey, at least now I don't have to worry about losing my membership card.
^_^

Each time you'll make a purchase, you can just hand over your gadget to the cashier so they can have it scanned and points will be added on your virtual ID.

The Body Shop Philippines is the first in the Asia Pacific to adapt this technology...cool!

For now, they will still be using this Rewards Card for your stamps. But they have plans of making it virtual too!

 It's time to cut your LYB card and go green instead!  


Here's a few more offerings from The Body Shop:

One of their awesome MUA helped me find my shades for the All-in-One makeup range

 During our visit there,  they have a promo where you buy any of their Body and Bath products for the regular price and get the next one for only Php100.  This offer is exclusively for SM Advantage and BDO Rewards cardholders.  Me, my mom and my sis went gaga over the promo and got a lot of stuff.  I wish this promo would be back soon!
(crossing my fingers)




For those who want to try out The Body Shop's Shiso White BB cream, you can get it for only Php695 (i think original price is a little over a thousand) if you swap your old bb cream:



Promo ends today, August 9.

Naku my mom pa naman eh gustong gustong mangolekta ng membership card hahaha

She is a long time LYB member, totoo nga madaming discount pag member ka. We got to buy a lot of Olive Oil mist just last weekend kasi sale at 50% off with LYB card. How cool is that?
