Live Science's parent company, Purch, launched a new member loyalty program today (Sept. 22) that will help consumers to make purchase decisions that best fit their needs and are the most economical, the company said in a statement.

Perks will be part of Purch's Active Junky platform, which is a site that provides cash back and price comparisons for all kinds of outdoor gear and apparel, and also on the ShopSavvy App, one of the world's largest mobile online shopping apps. Over time, the membership program will be incorporated into other Purch brands, such as Tom's Guide, Tom's Hardware, and other sites, the company said.

Purch Perks members, who can join for free online, will receive cash back on lots of purchases, exclusive deals, relevant reviews of products written by tech and science editors of Tom's Guide and other Purch sites and rewards based on level of program loyalty and activity. Further benefits will "evolve over time, with increasing value based on participation and engagement," Purch said in their statement.

Just glancing through Perks savings, you'll see the types of products range from Orion telescopes to Otter phone cases to Skullcandy speakers and more.

"As we continue to expand our content and commerce capabilities, we've thought a lot about high-value services that simplify the consumer purchase journey and create a tighter connection between buyers and sellers," Greg Mason, CEO of Purch, said in the statement. "Purch Perks is yet another service we're offering to our members to seamlessly facilitate their buying decisions and cement their loyalty."
