Penny’s joins Fun MilesPOSTED: 02/22/12 1:12 PM
St. Maarten – Fun Miles N.V has added a third company to its list of growing partners since the year began. Penny’s Department Store in Philipsburg made the partnership official on Tuesday after months of deliberating on what would be the best way of giving back to its faithful customers.
“We have been discussing for a few months now because we wanted to study and understand the program, it took us a few months to decide,” the store’s manager Sunil Multani said.
He added that the idea was to have customers get added value for their hard earned dollars and a rewarding shopping experience.
“We decided to team up with Fun Miles so that every time our customers come here they can get back something extra.”
Fun Miles Account Manager Agnetha Huijting revealed that the collaboration would result in customers who spend at least ANG 2.50 receiving 1 Fun Mile and entry into a raffle competition. “Shoppers who swipe their Fun Miles card at Penny’s before March 13 will automatically enter a raffle to win five thousand Fun Miles every week. The winners will be contacted and announced in the media,” she said.
The five floor business boasts a large assortment of baby products, clothing, household appliances and bed and bath products. Multani said that “hundreds of customers” visit the store on a daily basis with clothing racking up the most sales.
Fun Miles is considered the Caribbean’s biggest free saving and redemption program spanning four islands. It has been in existence for thirteen years. Fun Miles card holders have the unique opportunity to redeem shopping points for things such as airline tickets, fast food or even jewelry.
