Thanks Again®, the leading consumer loyalty and engagement platform for airports globally, announced the launch of a new smartphone app for IOS and Android today. The new multi-airport app provides convenience and a better travel experience for frequent business and leisure travelers, allowing them to:
Easily locate the places they want to shop, park or dine across a growing network of 100+ airports.
Securely register up to 99 credit or debit cards.
Effortlessly keep track of the Thanks Again Points they rack up.
View and determine which reward option(s) they want, when they want.
Redeem points for travel-related rewards that help them vacation faster.
Concurrent with the mobile app launch, the company also introduced Thanks Again Points, their global currency that can now be used toward an array of travel rewards such as cash back, airline miles, hotel points and airport perks. No longer are members wedded to any one redemption option – now they can have it all!
“On average, travelers spend at least one hour in an airport before their flight.” said Ed Puckhaber, President and COO of Thanks Again. “With Thanks Again, we help them make the most of their valuable time there by allowing them to access just one app to conveniently locate shopping, dining and service-related merchants across a growing network of more than 100 airports. The bonus is that when they use the credit or debit card that is linked to their Thanks Again account for purchases at those airports, they can earn extra points which can be redeemed to help them get to their next getaway faster.”
Thanks Again teamed up with Comarch Inc., a technology firm that specializes in the design, implementation and integration of advanced IT services to develop the enhanced app. The duo is already working on the next iteration of the app that will include among other things, Blue Low Energy (BLE) beacon technology. BLE beacons provide consumers with targeted offers based on their location and proximity to airport stores and restaurants. The new technology was recently piloted at Burbank Bob Hope Airport in March and will roll out to Thanks Again-supported airports nationwide later this year.
The introduction of Thanks Again Points and launch of the enhanced app continues Thanks Again’s “Sweet 16” momentum – with a focus on delivering significantly enhanced products and services as well as global expansion into Canada, China, India, Japan and Latin America including a deeper strength across North America.
