  • YEARLY SPEND
  • How is my yearly spend calculated?
  • Between November 1st and October 31st, every Penningtons purchase, whether in-store or online, is applied towards your yearly spend. If an item is returned, the corresponding amount will be deducted from your balance.
  • Does my spend carry over into a new program year?
  • No, all spend is cumulative during a program year and does not carry over into subsequent years. Members who attain the Privileged or All Access levels during a program year will start the next year at that level. The program year starts November 1st and ends October 31st the following year.
  • How will I know what my spend level is?
  • You can check online, by signing into your account, or contact Customer Care (1-866-388-4785) to find out your spend balance.
  • Where do I enter my loyalty membership number online? / How can I ensure that my online purchases are included in my loyalty spend?
  • You do not need to enter your loyalty membership number at check out. There are multiple ways in which your online purchase may be captured in your yearly spend.
    1. 1. Sign into your account when making your purchase.
    2. 2. Create an online account if you do not have one.
    3. 3. If you have created an account in-store, you will still need to create an online account. Ensure that your personal information matches your in-store account and the two will be merged. This is recommended as you will be able to view your loyalty spend within your account.
    4. 4. Check out as a visitor using the same email address and delivery address that is in your existing in-store account, and your online spend will be added to your yearly spend. This is not recommended as you will not be able to view your transaction history in your account at a later date.

  • It can sometimes take up to 10 days for your balance to be updated. Do not worry; your balance will reflect all purchases.
