Spend Your Loyalty Points And Miles As Cash With M2O
Getting for your purchases the loyalty points that can be exchanged for free goods or services amazes and encourages to spend more. Yes, in theory, that sounds cool. But in fact, collecting a significant amount of points could be a difficult game, and spending bonuses could be even a bigger challenge. 57% of customers abandon loyalty programs because it took too long to earn points or miles, the Colloquy Loyalty Census revealed.
The second challenge is expiration dates. Thus, if you make a purchase at Sephora, you’ll receive bonus points that have an 18-month term of validity. If you do not plan to return to this store, you will lose your points. As for miles, they are usually valid from 20 to 36 months or even zero out once a year, on December 31, which makes them useless if you’re not a frequent flyer.
One more problem is too complicated and confused conditions the loyalty programs sometimes lay. Obviously, clients hardly want to deal with the schemes like “10 points are $1 and $30 is a 50% discount for the next purchase in November.” Instead, customers will choose to give up.
As a result, customers cannot make use of their benefits and purchase really needful things while companies throw millions of dollars on ineffective and vain loyalty programs. People’s interest in such programs could be increased if they had an opportunity to gather all these points and miles in one place and spend them at their discretion at any time. Is it indeed possible?
“Yes,” answers a Korean startup M2O. The idea of the M2O project is to pick all the clients’ loyalty points and miles and put them into one repository, the so-called “Mileage Bank.” Powered by blockchain, this place will allow customers to securely store their bonuses here and freely spend them without worrying about any expiration dates.
Bringing their plans into life, the project team has launched an internal cryptocurrency — M2O token, which opens a wider scope of actions for customers. They can convert their rewards into digital money and trade, exchange, as well as make payments or contributions using it. To make this process more convenient and smoother, the M2O project has created M2O wallet.
About the Project
The M2O project is targeted at building a platform that integrates miles and points based on blockchain. It aims to aggregate all the user’s rewards in the reliable “Mileage Bank.” The customers will be able to convert their bonuses into M2O tokens and spend them as fiat at a range of stores affiliated with the project.
This solution developed by the M2O team will allow people to enjoy their bonuses at any time and any place not thinking about their expiration dates. The project team has created a secure and easy-to-use M2O wallet to make transactions quicker, more effective, and more secure thanks to blockchain technology.
M2O will start the global ICO campaign soon. It will begin on October 29 and last until November 23. People can buy 30,000 M2O tokens at the price of 1 ETH, which is the minimum contribution during the token sale.
