Starting Oct. 4, through Oct. 31 customers who join the Beyond+ loyalty program will get a bonus card whose $29 value matches the membership fee. The program gives members a 20% discount whenever they make a purchase, as well as early looks at holiday deals and free standard shipping.

All shoppers who spend $75 from Wednesday through Saturday will get $25 in My Funds Rewards that they can use any time in a 30-day period to purchase linen, kitchen accessories and other products.

And shoppers who purchase $200 worth of merchandise online on Oct. 13 and 14 will earn $50 in My Funds Rewards.
