The new mobile application combined to the existing go4sport customer card, offers a comprehensive multi-channel loyalty program in all company’s stores in Germany.
Sportpoint will enable its customers to benefit from a wide range of functions, whether they use Go4sport or the mobile application, they can collect bonus points, receive tailor-made digital coupons and rebates or view the latest news and campaigns on their mobile devices. They will also be able to view their bonuses in real time and spend through their prepaid card function.
Based on their personal preferences, customers can also opt-in to receive individual digital coupons which they will combine with their bonus points for additional savings. The application also includes a store finder and an overview of SportPoint’s current offers.
