Dubai is home to over 3 million residents and millions of visitors throughout the year. Dubai is also home to many loyalty programs.

Remember, loyalty programs and reward programs are marketing dollars (or dirhams) spent to effectively keep you “loyal” towards the brand. It motivates you to spend more to reach a goal, and save more too. If you are someone who doesn’t care about reward points or makes only one purchase per merchant, then loyalty programs are not for you. But, if you anyways spend at merchants that have loyalty programs, why not maximize the potential to save along the way.
