Ad Nut

Is 'loyalty programme' just another word for 'cult'?

It is in this fun spot for Australian grocery chain ALDI by BMF. The campaign also includes a calculator that purports to show the folly of devotion to loyalty schemes.

Ad Nut greatly enjoys this deadpan TVC, which posits that loyalty programmes are like cults.

But the star of the campaign, for ALDI by BMF, is the Reward Scheme Calculator. You input how much you spend on groceries each week and then find out how long it would take to earn specific rewards at competing grocery stores.

Ad Nut also calculated it would take 73 years and $382,000 to get a laptop.
