Then something happened: back in June, I found myself on Sloane street running errands (I was looking for a pair of Chanel shoes I’d been coveting a while) when I walked past Harvey Nichols and saw them advertising their brand new Rewards by Harvey Nichols mobile app. I think it was the last day of a promotion they were running for members of the Rewards scheme and so, since I was already in shopping mode, I promptly downloaded the app, filled in my details and went for a browse. Since the Chanel shoes of my dreams weren’t available in the Chanel store, I headed straight for HN’s shoe section and tried on all the sandals I could find, including my now favourite Proenza Schouler pair (which came home with me, sorry Chanel). Feeling rather pleased with myself with my sale purchase + added Rewards member discount, I also had a browse in the Beauty Hall to see if there was anything interesting going on. I was recently converted to Tom Ford beauty products and fragrances so I wanted to check that out as Harvey Nichols is one of their stockists in the UK. I will tell you more about Tom Ford beauty in an upcoming post, but let me just say I treated myself.
Why am I telling you all this? It isn’t just because I was pleased with my sale purchase or my beauty haul. It is because the shopping I did on that day earned me some pretty sweet treats courtesy of Harvey Nichols, as a member of their Rewards scheme. All that because I downloaded the free app (you can download it too on Apple or Android devices). With the Rewards app, you get 1pt per pound spent – and during double points promotions, you get, well 2pts per pound spent. My “day of indulgence” coincided with a double points promotion (which is going on until July 31st) so I earned a total of around 1500 points (don’t judge me) which will get me a luxury mani-pedi and I will show off my new sandals with freshly painted toes. Sweet!
In true Harvey Nichols fashion, the store has released a fun video to celebrate the new Rewards app, and I urge you to watch it as it will definitely put a smile on your face.
