Are you eyeing a new treadmill or cricket bat, or want to kit out the entire family in leisurewear? As one of Australia’s largest sporting goods retailers, rebel offers a wide selection of equipment, clothing, fitness accessories and more. And with its revamped loyalty program, rebel Active, you could pocket rewards by shopping in-store or online.

We take a look at the benefits of becoming a rebel Active member and what you can expect.

What is rebel Active?

The loyalty program of rebel sports stores across Australia, rebel Active rewards customers with exclusive benefits and offers, plus the ability to earn and redeem points on purchases.

The program is free to join, and you can take advantage of the perks online or when shopping at over 160 stores Australia-wide.

How do I earn rebel Active points?

The points-earning structure of the rebel Active program is simple. Members earn 1 point for every $1 spent on products in-store or online.

The only exceptions are gift cards, services, donations, and purchases made via direct debit – none of which will earn you any points.

You also can’t earn points on purchases that you’ve paid for using points or store credit, and you won’t earn points on shipping costs when shopping online.

As for the value of rebel Active points, 100 points is equivalent to $5 off a future shop. This means you can easily nab a future discount when purchasing a pair of running shoes, a basketball ring or home gym equipment.

As an example, if you spend $2,000 at rebel, you’ll earn enough points for $100 off your next purchase.

How do I redeem rebel Active points?

As mentioned, 100 rebel Active points are equivalent to $5. But this doesn’t mean that you need 100 points to make a redemption. That’s right – there’s no minimum number of points required for a redemption, so you could redeem 47 points, or 1,047.

Similarly, there’s no minimum order amount required in order for you to pay with points.

Your rebel Active points can be used to offset purchases made both in-store or online. Here’s how to redeem your points online:

  • Log into your rebel Active account.
  • On the ‘Payment’ page during the checkout process, you’ll be able to view any points available. Select ‘apply rewards’ to use your available points to pay for all or part of your order.

When shopping in-store, simply present your digital membership card, mobile number or email address to the team member, and let them know you’d like to redeem your available points.

Note that rebel Active points have a hard six-month expiry from the date you accrue them, so be sure to redeem your points before then.

What are the benefits of rebel Active membership?

The drawcard of the rebel’s loyalty program is the ability to earn and redeem points. Namely, the more you shop, the more points you’ll accumulate to offset future purchases.

But there are a few other benefits to being a rebel Active member, including:

  • Discounted member pricing
  • Early access to sales and products
  • Member-only prize draws
  • Exclusive offers and experiences
  • Information about latest product promotions
