Cashback promotions are a cornerstone of modern business strategy, offering a powerful tool for companies to boost sales, enhance brand visibility, and forge stronger relationships with retail partners.

Cashback promotions using Gift Cards are a key marketing strategy that benefits both consumers and businesses.

How to run a Cashback Promotion

Let’s explore how they work and why they are effective:

What is a Cashback Promotion?

  • In a cashback promotion, when customers purchase a product, they can later claim back a predetermined amount of the purchase price.
  • Essentially, it reduces the overall cost of the transaction for consumers.

Why Do Consumers Prefer Cashback Offers?

  • Real Value: Consumers perceive real value in cashback versus discounts.
  • Simplicity: Cashback mechanics are easy for consumers to understand and for brands to communicate.
  • Tangible Benefit: Cashback offers provide a tangible benefit by giving them a percentage of their purchase price back or a fixed dollar amount.

Why Do Suppliers Prefer Cashback Offers?

  • Cashback Offers: can be accounted as marketing costs, rather than discounts which decrease the top line sales revenue numbers with marketing costs directly aligned to sales results.
  • Cashback Redemptions: allows Marketers to collect Customer details and create the ability for ongoing database relationship for Communication moving forward.
  • Selective Redemption: Only a percentage of eligible customers apply for their rebate, allowing brands to stretch their marketing budget and offer more generous incentives.
  • Execute Across Channels: Effective trade promotions leverage multiple channels to reach consumers wherever they shop. Embrace omnichannel marketing strategies that encompass traditional retail, e-commerce, social media, and mobile platforms. Coordinate messaging and promotions across channels for a seamless and cohesive brand experience.
  • MicroGifts can be fully personalised & branded to support your marketing and brand loyalty efforts.
