Loyalty Program Breakage Rates

Points/currency which expires before it is used is said to have broken.Broken points cost nothing in rewards expense, but also gain nothing in customer engagement. Breakage allows the program to avoid investing in low value (and therefore slow accumulating) customers so there is more available to engage valuable customers. A balance must be struck between program costs, customer engagement/behaviour change ‘thresholds’ and breakage.
