Saks is taking its invite-only loyalty program to the next level, including expanded digital services.

The luxury retailer launched a digital segment of Saks Limitless as digital offering tailored to e-commerce customers in 2021 to align with Saks' spinoff as a digital luxury pure-play by owner Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) and venture capital firm Insight Partners.

  • Complimentary services and perks: Saks Limitless clients receive access to complimentary services and perks including pre-order early access, “try before you buy” and surprise gifts for birthdays, holidays and membership milestones.
