Attention Bon-Ton Shoppers!
For frequent Bon-Ton shoppers, signing up for the YOUR REWARDS credit card might be a smart choice. You’ll earn a $20 Rewards Card for every $200 you spend. These points are redeemable on regular or sale-price purchases of $50 or more when you use a YOUR REWARDS credit card.
By using the YOUR REWARDS card at any of The Bon-Ton family stores (Bon-Ton, Bergner's, Boston Store, Carson's, Elder-Beerman, Herberger's or Younkers), on their websites, or in the furniture galleries, clearance centers, or furniture clearance centers, you will rack up points in no time and there is no limit on how many Rewards Cards you can earn! You’ll also receive special birthday and email savings offers.
This generous program also offers several ways to double the number of Rewards Cards you can earn, including:
- By making purchases both in store and online in the same calendar month
- By making a purchase from a featured department and any other department in the same calendar month. (Featured departments are announced to cardholders via Facebook, email, text, or direct mail.)
- Bon-Ton even lets you stack Rewards Cards on the same purchase, provided that the minimum transaction is still met: $50 per Rewards Card. Sale items are also eligible for stacking.
There are three levels of cardholders, based on how much is spent in a calendar year: Signature (under $500), Elite ($500), and VIP ($1500).
In addition to the basic rewards program Signature members enjoy, Elite members receive Elite Extras mailings including special offers, six times per year. Plus, Elites get free shipping discount per year on one online purchase of $25 or more. VIP members receive all Elite level benefits plus, Elite Extras mailings 12 times per year and free standard shipping every day on online purchases of $25 or more.
Even if you’d rather not open another store credit card, Bon-Ton still rewards shoppers, "any way you pay!" The LoveStyle Rewards program gives shoppers a $10 Rewards Card for every $200 spent, regardless of how they pay, plus a special birthday offer, and exclusive email promotions.

Bon-Ton began when Max Grumbacher and his father, Samuel, opened S. Grumbacher & Son, a one-room millinery and dry goods store in York, Pennsylvania. “The Bon-Ton” was another way to say the "elite" or "high society” in British slang at the time.
The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. credits its hardworking associates for its success over such a long period of dramatic changes in the retail industry. Highly adaptive and service-oriented, the family of stores and associates continue to provide outstanding service to their customers and communities, despite technological and cultural changes over the decades.
The Bon-Ton Stores Inc. has continued its long tradition of giving back and is very active with local charitable organizations. Over the years, the company helped raise nearly $350 million to support a large variety of local charitable organizations. For example, Bon-Ton’s 2016 Goodwill Sale collected 4.1 million pounds of clothing donations, which provided more than 592,000 hours of job skills training and employment services to local community members.
Other partnerships and donations include The Breast Cancer Research Foundation, United Way, local schools and nonprofit organizations, and various organizations of employees’ choosing, via the matching gift program.
The caring continues as Bon-Ton strives to form partnerships with diverse business and organizations including those owned by minorities and women.
Additionally, the company takes social responsibility very seriously. Its Social Compliance guide must be followed by all its suppliers and is designed to protect workers in the supply chain from travesties such as slavery and human trafficking.
