Why does Shop Samsung need access to my Contacts?

Samsung Galaxy Note 10 & Note 10+ (2019)

I noticed last night upon opening the Shop Samsung app that I was signed out. Started to sign in again, but received a dialog box asking for access to Contacts. Chose the Deny option, but if so then there does not appear to be a way to use the app as a signed in user; just as a Guest.

Since I’ve purchased a few things over time and have some points, would like to access that information. I imagine that I could achieve similar via the Samsung website.

Maybe a long time ago I granted access to Contacts, and have forgotten. Question still remains, why does Shop Samsung app need access to my Contacts, and why can’t I sign into the app unless allowing access?
