Is It Permissible to Use Loyalty Cards?

Hanafi Fiqh

Answered by Ustadh Salman Younas

Question: Assalam aleykum

Is it permissible to use loyalty cards, that offer points every time you shop at the store and can then be used to get a certain amount of money deducted from the price of a product?

Answer: Assalam aleykum,

This would be permitted. The points or rewards you earn from using such a card is considered a gift from the retailer to you. As such, there is nothing wrong with using such cards.
