The (coffee) cup that cheers: Finnbees launches new rewards scheme
Finnbees on Bray seafront has launched a new rewards scheme through VillagePod.
Anne Ferris, Cathaoirleach of the Bray Municipal District Council, David Forde of the Bray town management team, Conor O’Leary from Purple House and Urban X (pictred) were on hand to mark the launch with a socially distant coffee and dance off on Bray seafront.
Finnbees has collaborated with VillagePod to offer customers a contactless solution for payment, gifting and rewards while also supporting Purple House Cancer support with a donation of each payment made through VillagePod.
“We have been overjoyed with the local response to our reopening since the lockdown, with strict Covid-19 protection measures in place moving to contactless rewards was the next step,” said Paul Finnegan of Finnbees.
“Customers can now pay contactlessly using the VillagePod app with the reward stamps for purchase applied directly onto their app. No stamp cards, no contact and all the benefits of being a Finnbees customer still in place.”
Finnbees are rewarding all customers with free stamps so once they pay with VillagePod they are already on the way to achieving their free hot drink for a limted period.
Gifts can also be sent through the app and Finnbees are offering a special promotional Gift Card, purchased for €20 with a value of €22.
VillagePod Gift Cards are uniquely designed to suit all occasions, sent through the app to be used by the lucky recipient.
Contactless Gifting, no postage stamp required, all that is needed is a phone number and the app does the rest.
‘It has been an uncertain time for all businesses,” Cormac McKenna, the CEO of VillagePod said.
“VillagePod is supporting the local business community with a contactless platform for payments, gifting and rewards, with no cost to the customer and benefits to locally active causes.
“Having launched VillagePod in November we are delighted to be in over 80 businesses in the North Wicklow area with more contacting us daily.”
