What kind of deals/discounts should be offered as part of the discount program?

The discounts may be for a particular product or service (I.e. 15% off drink products), or maybe a whole store discount (I.e. 5% discount across the store). TYFDSAI has 2 membership levels and you may choose to offer different discounts to different levels (I.e. 5% off for basic members or 10% off for 3-star members).
