So I do not want to use excel but was wondering how hard would it be to create something that held names, email, phone, amount and time. Then lets say if David paid for items twice a week, I will need for it to tell me how much he spent on a weekly, monthly and quarterly basis along with points that would be accumulated.

Not sure why you are averse to excel (or its equivalents: g-sheets, apple numbers, open/libre office calc, lotus123, or even smartsheet). This would be a breeze for any of them. Not harder, at all.
I could this in my sleep if I had the time (I don't, sorry).
OK, there are 2 issues i see with the way you ask the question, first: the title says "something more advanced than excel".. it will be hard to find something thats "more advanced" than a software that exists for about 30-40 years and is worth billions of dollars. - of course it is only advanced in the area it was developed for.
On the other hand you post this in the development forum which implies you thought about a custom program. If so, there are many questions that come up:
-) what programming languages are you able to use
-) in which environment has the final product to run
-) especially interesting: what is the data source? so how do you gather the informations about names, email, phone amount and time?
Sure there are many more questions but i am not sure if it is the direction you were thinking at all

But all the criteria mentioned in the OP are so basic that many many tools can do it easily, including Excel and those equivalents that I already mentioned.
