Loyalty Magazine Awards: Winner

Best Coupon/Voucher Based Loyalty Programme 2017

The i2C team were at the Loyalty Magazine Awards this week and were delighted to win Best Coupon/Voucher Based Loyalty Programme 2017 for our work with P&G. Congratulations to the whole team.

The Baby and Beauty category in UK supermarket Sainsbury’s grew 1.6% last year, driven by customers shopping more frequently. This was true of most subcategories except Haircare, which saw a 4.3% decline in spend. The i2C team designed a haircare loyalty programme intended to drive incremental category growth by championing P&G brands and increasing spend per customer by making them feel rewarded.
