PerksCard Network Launches New Website Platform Promoting Loyalty, Savings and Discounts
St. Paul, MN (March 23, 2010) – PerksCard Network, a premier loyalty savings and discount network, announces the launch of a new website and program platform.
The PerksCard program is a lifestyle discount and saving program enabling industry leaders to attract and retain their customers, members and employees. Through its customizable platform, PerksCard provides individuals with access to discounts and savings on products and services they use every day in their communities and online.
The new program platform offers enhanced tracking, reporting and marketing capabilities, and the new PerksCard Network website (www.perkscard.com) provides users a more efficient and seamless experience so they can quickly search for local merchant discounts, featured offers, online mall offers, and insurance/voluntary benefits.
Local Merchant Discounts – PerksCard makes it easy for cardholders to locate discounted products and services from local merchants in the communities where they live.
Featured Partners – PerksCard participants receive further discounts and special promotions through a network of Featured Partners, made up of national retailers and service organizations, which offer individuals unique savings and discounts.
Online Mall – Participants can search and compare prices through access to PerksCard Network’s Online Mall. Purchases are securely made using a major credit card, and the Online Mall provides a vast amount of businesses and categories for individuals to choose from.
Insurance/Voluntary Benefits – An added value of being part of the PerksCard Network is the opportunity to access voluntary benefits and insurance coverage. Coverage is provided by industry leading carriers in all 50 states, and insurance calls are handled by licensed insurance representatives. Participants may inquire about health insurance, auto, home and life insurance, dental, limited medical benefits products, and more.
Local Mapping – With Local Mapping, participants can search for specific merchant discounts in their neighborhood simply by entering their zip, address, or city/state. Search results are listed in an easy to read format and are mapped for location identification.
Merchant Benefits – Merchants in the PerksCard Network are able to effectively promote their businesses by posting information about their businesses, discounts/offers, and printable coupons to the PerksCard website, as well as through periodic emails sent to registered PerksCard members. In addition, new, time-saving management tools can help merchants run their businesses more efficiently, and all merchants will automatically get access to a wide selection of discounts specifically for business owners.
“ It is very exciting to see our new platform and technology in the market,” says Bob Dow, President of PerksGroup. “We have worked long and hard to make PerksCard best-in-class, and will be launching our new platform with some of the biggest employers in the country. The initial response has been overwhelmingly positive. Our clients see this as a great retention and motivational tool that adds value and savings for their employees and the merchants will see it as a means to drive traffic and save money in their business.”
