Why Digital Rewards

Reward your recipients minutes after their dedication to your business. 

People love instant gratification. And right now, there is nothing closer to instant in the world of rewards and incentives than digital rewards. Because they can be delivered via a link embedded in an email, they can get in your recipients’ hands more quickly and be redeemed online or in select stores minutes later.

Minimize indirect costs of your reward program.

Digital rewards have far lower production costs—because there’s nothing to print, nothing to mail—that also translate into faster production time.

Speed of delivery and redemption are two big factors fueling the growth in popularity of digital rewards. According to a 2017 study by PayNXT 360, the digital rewards market—at $44 million in 2017—is projected to grow to over $81 million by 2021.3

Digital rewards support your business strategy.

  • Create a stronger association between the reward and the action it’s attempting to incent
  • Forge a deeper connection between the reward and your brand
  • Deliver a positive experience to incentive program participants through expanded reward choice and fast delivery
  • Reduce costs associated with reward production and delivery
