Let's be honest, when it comes to customer loyalty programs, some are great at keeping customers excited and in the loop, while others are lacking. That's why we compiled a handy list containing 5 of some of our favorite customer loyalty programs. Some might be considered a non-traditional customer loyalty program (i.e. FourSquare), but we think what they are doing for local businesses is pretty cool and aligns itself with a loyalty program. Take a look at these 5 tweets on customer loyalty programs and don't hesitate to let us know what you think!
#1: Dropbox - refer a friend to Dropbox, you will be rewarded with 1GB of storage space and your friend will get 500MB. Sweet!
Best #customerloyalty example of the day goes to @Dropbox. When you refer a friend, you BOTH get extra space. Win. pic.twitter.com/LYmN2hdNjX
