Beedle's Shop, regardless of whether it travels by air, as in Spirit Tracks, or floats on the open ocean, as in The Wind Waker and Phantom Hourglass, offers a reward and point system that is managed through Membership Cards, which function to provide complementary services so long as Link remains a loyal, continuous customer. There are different levels of membership Link can attain as incentive to stay buying and selling items to Beedle throughout the entire quest, though all items purchased and sold are replenishable items only, such as Hyoi Pears, Treasures, and Bombs, just to name a few.

Accumulation of Points

Beedle offers Link a Membership with his business that details a reward system for Link if he continues to provide Beedle with consistent patronage. Accepting the Membership offer is free, except in Spirit Tracks, where Beedle charges Link with a down payment of 100 Rupees.

In the three titles, Beedle maintains a point count that stems directly from the amount of items purchased in his store; however, each of the games has a different take on how points are actually accumulated. In The Wind Waker, if Link buys one item, he gains one point towards his Membership; in Phantom Hourglass, each item has a different point value based on its price and type of Membership; and in Spirit Tracks, for every 10 Rupees spent, Link gains one point towards the next Membership. As long as Link buys items in Beedle's Shop, he will continue to accumulate points, but after he has obtained the final membership available, the point system will cease, as nothing further can be acquired through it.

Perks of the Membership Card

The purpose of the Membership is to benefit both parties: As Beedle sees an increase in the purchasing of his products, Link gets price discounts, complementary cards, freebie coupons, and even Treasures in return for his valued patronage. Each membership comes with a different perk, and obviously, as the memberships increase in value, so do the value and significance of the extras that come in conjunction with the Memberships.
