The Container Store launched a new tier-based loyalty program called Organized Insider. The loyalty program is based around how much you spend annually — you can qualify for the enthusiast tier ($0 to $299 annually), experienced tier ($300 to $900) and expert tier (more than $1,000) — and each features various perks like receipt-free returns, birthday discounts, early access to select new products or a year-end gift.

Current loyalty members will be automatically converted into Organized Insiders based on their 2021 and current 2022 spending. The Container Store also introduced its first-ever mobile app (on the Apple App Store and Google Play). You can use the app to shop, check available offers or exclusive benefits and find out how much you need to spend to advance to the next tier. The Container Store makes some of our favorite kitchen storage solutions and clothes hangers.
