Hotel starts contactless rewards scheme
The Gateway Hotel in Nottingham has started a loyalty scheme using sQuid’s contactless smart card solution.
The UK hotel’s new ‘We Love to Reward You’ loyalty programme offers guests contactless smart cards that can be used to make purchases in the hotel and collect rewards points that are redeemable in the hotel’s bar and restaurant.
The hotels general manager Mandy Goldsmith sasid the card has two purses – one for making payments and one for storing loyalty rewards. Customers will be rewarded with one pound for every five pounds spent, which is paid back in to the loyalty purse on their card.
The cards are sold for £5 and come with £10 of reward pre-loaded for signing up.
Goldsmith added: “Our loyalty scheme will not only appeal to new customers but will also reward frequent customers. Customers are provided with an online account where they can view their transactions; keep track of their loyalty funds and then top up their card online.”
