I like the new Al-Shaya card system. While in a shopping spree last weekend, I purchased an article of clothing from one of the many Al-Shaya retail shops and changed my mind about it once I got home. When I checked the receipt I was surprised to see that they don't allow refunds, but I can have it added as credit to an Al-Shaya card. When I went back to the shop the next day, the sales lady explained to me that I can add the amount of the returned item to this card and I can use the money to purchase anything from ANY of the Al-Shaya owned shops within a time-frame of one year. Amazing! I can also use this card as a gift card by adding any amount of money to it and giving it to someone as a present. I love that idea! There are so many options to choose from!
Among my favorite Al-Shaya shops are: Kiehl’s, Boots, MAC, Debenhams, H&M, TopShop, and River Island.
