MFA Oil Co., which operates 77 Break Time convenience stores across Missouri and Arkansas has partnered with VERGE Retail, using its Connect smartphone platform to launch a loyalty program.
With the loyalty features built into the Break Time app, c-store customers are rewarded each time they use their iPhone or Android to check into a store, enabling them to game for the opportunity to unlock premium coupons, while building points for future savings. The branded app also features instant prizes and coupons based on a customer’s personal preferences.
“With our Break Time app built on the VERGE Connect platform, we’re giving customers an enjoyable experience as they interact with our brand daily in a way that provides value and savings to them, while also rewarding them for visiting our stores more frequently,” said Jackie Maxwell, Break Time general manager and vice president of MFA Oil.
“Today—more than ever—convenience store chain operators seek something that in the past was far more difficult to achieve without mobile technology: converting brand-agnostic customers into brand-loyal customers,” said Carson Kuehne, VERGE Retail chief innovations officer. “With our platform, the loyalty program is turnkey and self-contained within the app, so it is quick to deploy, easy to use and highly effective because it delivers the brand to the hands of customers every single day in a way that is fun and rewarding.”
