From 1 February 2012, Nationwide Building Society is launching a new selection of offers through Simply Rewards, a reward scheme providing savings on major brands, available exclusively for its Visa debit and credit card customers.
Visa debit and credit card customers can access the discounts by logging on to the Simply Rewards website. There is no registration, no points to collect or fees to pay, so customers don’t have to wait to take advantage of the offers. Around 250,000 Nationwide customers have already visited the Simply Rewards site since the first round of offers was launched three months ago, with many taking advantage of the great deals on offer.
Some examples of the deals on offer:
- Carluccio’s - Free bottle of wine when two dine
- Holiday Inn - 35% off best flexible rates
- Wickes - 10% off when you spend £200+
Other discounts from providers such as Butlins, Urban Outfitters, Gourmet Society, Kwik Fit, aka Promotions (West End Theatre) and Virgin Holidays will also be available at the Simply Rewards website.
Graham Pilkington, Nationwide’s banking director, said: “Simply Rewards was launched in November 2011 and has proved popular with customers with over a quarter of a million customers already logging on looking to secure discounts on big brands. Customers paying with their Nationwide Visa debit and credit card can make big savings with a range of well known companies.
“The Society reviews these offers on a regular basis, so customers should check regularly to see the latest deals. The scheme continues to reward customer loyalty and is another example of Nationwide being ‘On Your Side’.”
