JunoWallet's Mobile App Leads the Social Gifting Category of Social Media
SOUTH BEND, Ind. Sept. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Introducing Social Gifting - a brand new category of social media. This week, South Bend Regional Airport (SBN) became the first airport in the world to GO LIVE with the new JunoWallet – JunoPoints program. Travelers tweet, travelers Facebook, travelers check-in on Foursquare. Now travelers checking in at SBN via Foursquare (and soon Facebook) also earn JunoPoints for check-ins good towards the redemption of a gift card.
Once earned, JunoPoints are stored in your JunoWallet wallet, an application available for iPhone, iPad 3G and all Android devices. After accumulating 10,000 JunoPoints, travelers can redeem those JunoPoints for a $100 mobile gift card, honored at all food, retail, and parking locations at the South Bend Airport.
It gets better; SBN is proud to announce our first JunoPoints HotSpot advertiser, The Travel Card – powered by the Travelocity Network. To reward check-ins at SBN, users can find HotSpot locations and ads where they can download a $50 Vacation Cash Card, powered by the Travelocity Network, using JunoWallet. The travel cards are redeemable for travel to more than 55,000 hotels, resorts, and airlines worldwide from within the Travelocity Network. Watch for more HotSpots at SBN and offers for travel related products, and your favorite local retailers, restaurants, and bars.
"We are proud to reward our travelers using location based loyalties," said Elizabeth Cecconi, Director of Marketing and Development at the South Bend Regional Airport. "By rewarding travelers for their check-ins we now have the opportunity to engage our passengers on a new level. Social gifting and social buying are a brand new social media paradigm – what we are doing is delivering small amounts of happiness in the form of mobile gift cards and certificates."
How it works:
- Each JunoWallet or Foursquare (linked to JunoWallet) check-in at SBN earns JunoPoints, ranging in point values from 20 to 2000. When the user accumulates 10,000 JunoPoints, they can redeem a $100 gift card which is loaded onto the user's mobile phone.
- Any iPhone, iPad 3G, or Android user can use JunoWallet and link their Foursquare account to JunoWallet, which earns the user JunoPoints for each check-in. JunoWallet gift cards can then be redeemed and used direct from the user's mobile device at all food, retail and parking locations at SBN.
