Smart Shopper points to offer rewards

By Staff Writer
The Pick n Pay Smart Shopper rewards programme earns customers point whenever they swipe their card at a till point.
 
Shoppers can spend the points that they earn at Pick n Pay stores on any of the items available in the store, including groceries, clothing and airtime, as well as to pay their utility bill.
 
However, customers can now also exchange their points for vouchers to use at any of Pick n Pay’s partners.

Head of smart shopper at Pick n Pay, Steve Hoban explained: “It’s all about giving our customers opportunities to treat themselves and their families in spite of tough economic conditions. It’s a value-added benefit we give to our customers simply for continuing to do what they have been doing and choosing to do their shop with us.”
 
Pick n Pay has partnered with a number of different retailers and companies to offer its customers value-for money deals.
 
Ster-Kinekor:Customers can exchange R30 worth of their Smart Shopper points for a 2D movie voucher from Ster-Kinekor at any Smart Shopper kiosk in the Pick n Pay stores.

Avios:This is a free travel rewards programme.

Absa:Absa Rewards members get a further 15% points, when they exchange their Absa Cash Rewards to Smart Shopper points. The website explains: “If you have 100 Cash Rewards and make the switch, you’ll automatically earn 115 smart shopper points.”
 
“Loyalty programmes are no longer simply ad-hoc reward incentives for loyal customers. They have evolved into highly sensitive vehicles for engagement with customers and a way to show them that they are being heard. The loyalty programmes that will be successful in the years to come are those which make efficient use of the data they generate to adapt and evolve with dynamic customer preferences,” reveals Hoban.
