September 29, 2014 Moneris

With the Moneris AIR MILES reward miles Program, small businesses can now take advantage of Canada’s premiere coalition loyalty program.

Toronto, ON – September 29, 2014 – Moneris Solutions Corporation (“Moneris”), Canada’s largest credit and debit card processor, is offering small business merchants the ability to provide their customers with AIR MILES® reward miles for their purchases through the Moneris AIR MILES reward miles Program.

Moneris small business customers will now have access to a turnkey loyalty program to help drive sales for their business. The program will help businesses acquire new customers who are AIR MILES Collectors, increase customer loyalty and grow existing customers’ spend. Merchants who sign up for the value-added service simply leverage their existing Moneris technology that has been integrated with AIR MILES program support.

AIR MILES is a loyalty reward program all retailers and consumers are familiar with, but has typically not been readily available to smaller merchants across Canada.

Jeff Guthrie, Chief Sales Officer, Moneris Solutions.

“Thanks to our relationship with AIR MILES, we’re able to bring this loyalty program to our small business customers and reaffirm our commitment to assist in the growth of small business. This new program helps level the playing field for businesses who haven’t been given the opportunity to take part in loyalty programs,”says Jeff Guthrie.

As part of the Moneris AIR MILES reward miles Program, merchants can decide how many reward miles per dollar amount spent program members will receive. The program also gives merchants the ability to offer customers bonus reward miles to further amplify local marketing initiatives and in-store promotions.

We are delighted to be working with Moneris to give their small business merchants access to one of Canada’s most recognized loyalty program. With over 10 million active AIR MILES Collector accounts, this offering will certainly help Moneris merchants attract new customers looking to earn valuable reward miles.

Blair Cameron, Senior Vice President Client Services, AIR MILES Reward Program.

Effective today, small businesses interested in leveraging the program can sign up for Moneris payment processing at www.moneris.com. Existing merchants may contact Moneris merchant support at 1-866-319-7450 to inquire about the program.
