Farmingdale, N.Y. — D'Addario, the world's largest maker of musical instrument accessories, has just launched Players Circle, the only customer rewards program in the musical instrument accessories sphere.

The online rewards program is the digital evolution of a concept Jim D'Addario, CEO of D'Addario & Company, first conceived in the 1990s.

The process is simple: players sign up online, enter the serial numbers from their purchased packaging, and are rewarded with redeemable points. Other ways to earn points include getting others to sign up, and sharing content on social media.

Points are redeemable for accessories and gear, including many different lines of D'Addario strings for electric, acoustic, classical and bass guitar. All remaining instrument product lines will be phased in over the course of the year.

This enables players to sample different styles of their choosing. Shipping and handling costs are included in the point redemption. D'Addario plans to launch similar rewards programs for their accessories, woodwinds, percussion and orchestral brands in the future.

Upon signup, rewards program members are also automatically entered to win large-scale prizes, such as guitars, effect pedals, accessories and digital exclusives.

Players Circle is currently open to US-residents only with plans to expand the program globally.

Tried to sign up, but could not. The form required a "valid referral email address or code". So, how does one get a referral?

I left that field blank and signed up, didn't have a problem. You might try again. If you continue to have problems we have a couple of D'Addario reps that are members.
