Andrew Mitchell marks 10,000th reward in Sutton’s ‘Rewards In’ Scheme and praises Sutton BID for its support

Andrew Mitchell MP has marked the 10,000th reward of the Rewards In Sutton Coldfield scheme as the initiative hits the six month mark on a high. The milestone was quickly surpassed with over 12,500 rewards earned by Monday.

Sutton’s MP sat down with Mike Bushell, manager of the Sutton Coldfield Town Centre BID and Guy Chatburn, Managing Director of Rewarding Visits, one of the innovative scheme’s founders which is used by over 5,000 Suttonians, to discuss the success of the initiative before visiting participating businesses.

The Rewards In loyalty card, which is also available as an app, is free to use for all and affords users upgrades, discounts, special offers and freebies at over 40 participating business across Sutton. During the visit to participating businesses Mr Mitchell heard how it was not just national chains benefitting, but small independent businesses were also thriving on the scheme.

In the meeting with Mike Bushell and Guy Chatburn, Andrew Mitchell heard the plans to build on the success by installing kiosks across in the town centre, which will print out vouchers for participating businesses.

Guy Chatburn comments: ‘It was great to be able to show Andrew the way Rewards In is benefitting businesses in Sutton but also to be able to share the positive way the BID has supported my emerging technology start-up company. At Rewarding Visits we are pleased to have the opportunity to work with such an entrepreneurial and forward thinking team.”

Andrew Mitchell commented, “The Rewards In scheme has been a huge success and I am very pleased to have been able to mark the 10,000th reward with Mike and Guy. Both the BID and Rewarding Visits deserve much credit for the initiative which has proved its popularity with Sutton business owners and shoppers”.
