Loyalty & Reward Programs increase sales and drive repeat business

Your customers are the key to your business’ success so why not reward them with a loyalty program to ensure they keep returning?

Loyalty or Rewards programs are launched using a card made of PVC plastic that has a magnetic stripe on the back.

The card can be used to accumulate points, dollars or rewards in a merchant’s store or business. The card can track visits, products purchased or total dollars spent. The merchant can predetermine the levels of rewards or points on the program.
