We see it as a win-win situation where the customer gets to use the gift credit they were holding for a product of their choice while we at Aerus get to create a new customer relationship.
Dallas, TX (PRWEB) March 10, 2008
Aerus, formerly Electrolux, announced today that consumers holding unusable Shaper Image gift cards and gift certificates may redeem them at participating Aerus locations for 50% off any Aerus purchase.
Aerus, a franchise organization, with over 500 locations in North America, sells vacuum cleaners, air filtration systems, water purification systems and a range of other products all designed to create a healthier home environment.
Aerus made the decision to offer the discount after Sharper Image announced, in its Chapter 11 Bankruptcy proceedings, it was suspending the acceptance of Sharper Image gift cards, rewards cards, gift certificates and merchandising certificates.
"We did not want to see the customers holding gift-card credit to have to pay for the consequences of a company's misfortunes," explained Aerus Chairman and CEO Joseph P. Urso. "We are confident that customers will find terrific products and great value for their Sharper Image gift cards at Aerus, and we are happy to extend this offer to former Sharper Image customers." said Aerus Chairman and CEO, Joseph P. Urso. "Sharper Image customers are looking for creative, helpful technologies. Historically, through the Electrolux brand and today, through the Aerus brand, we offer extraordinary quality and believe that Sharper Image customers will be extremely pleased with the benefits and value found at Aerus. Many of our products create healthy living environments, which will appeal to most Sharper Image customers."
Richard Luisi, Executive V.P. of Sales in North America for Aerus said, "Our Aerus locations are ready and prepared to accept Sharper Image gift cards and we are excited about the opportunity to service these customers.
"I am sure they will be very pleased to see how they are able to convert the credit they are holding into Aerus products that help them create more healthy living environments," Luisi added. "We see it as a win-win situation where the customer gets to use the gift credit they were holding for a product of their choice while we at Aerus get to create a new customer relationship."
Customers can redeem their Sharper Image gift cards by visiting any participating Aerus location, where they will receive a one-time discount of 50% off their Aerus purchase - up to a maximum savings of $200 - regardless of the amount on the card. The offer is valid for in-store purchases and until May 31, 2008.
