I have been participating in the JC Penney Rewards Program since November and so far I have earned $30.00 in free savings certificates. I love this program because they are running a promo this year where you earn double points if you make a purchase each month.
To claim your free $5.00 reward, go to jcprewards.com and enter promo code 3006. This offer is valid through March 31, 2009 and is for new members only.
One thing that I love about being on JC Penney's mailing list is that they periodically send you coupons for $10.00 off a purchase of $10.00 or more. I got two of these in February and used them get new pajamas for my daughter for $1.25 each. These were brand new Carter's pajamas. You really can't beat that. I just got one of these coupons today and I can't wait to use it.
For those of you that order at jcp.com you should be able to get the same $10.00 off a $10.00 or more discount by entering code BUDDING when prompted at checkout. This discount is completely separate from the Rewards program, so even if you don't sign up for that, you should still be able to take advantage of this offer.
