The points can be issued using a variety of methods — directly into accounts, over email, or via redeemable codes or certificates — without the constraints of being tied to any specific form of payment.
"With our Corporate Platform, we have streamlined the distribution process allowing for overall growth of our loyalty platform and an expanding customer base for our partners," said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points International. "We are excited to be able to continuously foster and utilize our great relationships with long-standing partners like Best Buy with developments such as the Corporate Platform."
Now, businesses of all sizes looking to grow brand loyalty can easily incentivize customers with popular Best Buy Reward Zone points. A fast and easy application process allows merchants to sign up for the program, and, once approved for participation, points can be offered the same day.
