Make your notice and image predictable
People are conservative by their nature and better perceive experienced in the past incentives rather than absolutely new ones. Due to pre-defined patterns of behavior, people easily accept only well-known images, shapes and phrases.  So, you should better use familiar symbols like stars, circles, ribbons for your labels and regular promotional phrases.
