Signature status Bon-Ton cardholders have the following benefits, as of 2015: exclusive cardholder savings, birthday offers, email promotions and a $20 rewards card for every $200 spent on the card. Elite status Bon-Ton cardholders are eligible for the above benefits plus elite savings and free shipping, according to Bon-Ton's website.
Customers approved for a Bon-Ton credit card initially receive Signature status credit cards. Customers can use their card-linked benefits immediately. After spending over $1,000 on their Signature status card in a calendar year, Bon-Ton customers receive an Elite status credit card, reports the Bon-Ton website. Customers can manage their accounts or pay their credit card bills online.
While using the card, customers can double their rewards points by purchasing items from the store's monthly featured department. For example, in June 2015, the men's department was the store's featured department. Once a customer receives a $20 rewards card after spending $200 on a credit card, the customer can use the rewards card alone or combine it with other rewards cards for a larger total discount. Bon-Ton customers can also use rewards cards on designer brands. However, customers can only use rewards cards on purchases over $50, according to the Bon-Ton website.
