Mediaplanet Publishing Inc. and COLLOQUY Announce the Release of "The Essential Guide to Loyalty & Rewards" in USA TODAY

Share Article

2013 has been dubbed "The Year of the Loyalty Program," so Mediaplanet Publishing Inc. and COLLOQUY have teamed up to explain why that is, and how to make the most of your loyalty and rewards programs this summer and beyond.

Mediaplanet Publishing Inc. and COLLOQUY announce the release of "The Essential Guide to Loyalty and Rewards" hitting newsstands today in USA TODAY in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Atlanta and the surrounding regions.

According to research, customers rank loyalty programs as one of the most important factors when considering a purchasing decision. However, in 2011 alone, an estimated $48 billion worth of rewards were issued, yet only one third--or $16 billion--went unclaimed. From this information we can conclude that while today's consumers recognize the notable value rewards programs add, something is hindering the consumer's decision or ability to redeem their rewards.

In "The Essential Guide to Loyalty and Rewards" Mediaplanet and COLLOQUY have highlighted the "best in show" of the industry, and have showcased the simple side of rewards redemption in order to make the loyalty rewards system more accessible to today's consumers, bringing engagement back to the forefront of the brand-consumer relationship.

Some of the major highlights of the feature include how to reap seasonal travel rewards, going further with fuel and auto rewards, highlights from the 2013 COLLOQUY Loyalty Census, a case study on how future hall-of-famer Derek Jeter has embodied loyalty, how companies can engage in RFID technology, and much much more.
