How would you like to be part of a loyalty programme that rewards you without you having to do anything? If you’re out shopping, you don’t have to remember to carry a loyalty card or find an app on your phone. If you’re a local business, you don’t have to install new software or provide extra staff training. It really is as simple as it sounds!
Mi Rewards is the brand-new programme that rewards you through a clever, secure process where you link your debit/credit cards to your Mi Rewards online account. Every time you spend £1 on one of these cards in a participating business, you get one ‘Mi Point’. Once you have enough Mi Points, you’ll be sent a free Perth Gift Card! That’s more money going back into Perth’s businesses, keeping spend local and benefiting the whole city.
How did Mi Rewards come about?
Perth, was the first city in the UK to have it’s own Gift Card that people can buy and give as gifts to friends, family, colleagues or employees. This model has now been replicated in towns and cities across the UK. The team behind the Gift Card wanted to develop a way to reward people for spending, too. It made sense to link the two together in a programme that’s the first of its kind in the UK, possibly in Europe.
How does it work?
We know that simple is best when it comes to technology. So we’ve made the Mi Rewards registration process easy and quick. Here’s what you do:
Fill in your details (name, email address, home address etc)
Choose a password
Pop in the details of one or more of your spending cards – Visa Debit, Visa or Mastercard. (Your card details are not seen by any of the businesses you visit.)
And that’s it! Now whenever you spend money in one of our registered shops, cafés, salons, clinics or leisure providers, you’ll start earning points right away!
You can check your points at any time, too, by logging into your account
Points means prizes (and perks and Gift Cards!)
Those points will accumulate and earn you Perth Gift Cards to spend in over 50 local businesses. Even better, in the meantime we’ll send our customers regular perks and give you the chance to win fantastic prizes. (See our competition at the end of the article!) And to say a big thanks for shopping locally, we’ll also throw in some random acts of kindness.
Perks that we’ve offered so far include:
- Half-price boating on the Tay
- Two-for-one breakfasts at Willows Coffee Shop
- 40% off paddleboarding at Willowgate Activity Centre
- Jumping the queue at the Zombie Maze during Perth’s Halloween Night
- Free glow sticks from Fun Junction Toys for the Fireworks
Where can you Earn Mi Points?
Already more than 40 Perth businesses have registered with Mi Rewards, including gift shops such as Boo Vake and Silver Linings Design Studio, eating places such as Tabla and Grayson’s Wine Café, salons such as Charlie Taylor and The Cutting Room and health providers such as The Althos Clinic. You can earn them while having fun at Willowgate Activity Centre, Alba Airsports or Perth Leisure Pool. And you can earn them paying for a show at Perth Theatre / Perth Concert Hall or a film at Perth Playhouse!
