HSS Hire begins issuing Nectar for Business points
The UK tool hire company HSS Hire has joined the Nectar for Business loyalty programme as a points-issuing partner, with a 31-day double points offer for new members. From 5th April 2006 customers of HSS Hire have begun earning points through the Nectar for Business programme, operated by Loyalty Management UK (LMUK), a subsidiary of Loyalty Management Group (LMG).
Points are available for the hire of tools and equipment, and for the purchase of tools, equipment, maintenance, repairs, training, safety wear, and consumables.
HSS is awarding its customers 2 points per £1 spent (excluding VAT) on the value of each transaction.
Points bonus To claim their points, customers simply present their Nectar for Business card (or a domestic Nectar card) with each transaction. The points are automatically credited to the customer's Nectar account.
Until the last day of July 2006, Nectar card users will earn double points on their first month's worth of transactions at HSS Hire. (After the first Nectar-linked transaction at HSS Hire, double points are awarded for all transactions in the following month.)
Trade link Instead of showing a Nectar card with every purchase, trade account customers can simply have their Nectar account number tied to their HSS TradeCard account.
And, to avoid any possible doubt about ethical employee behaviour, HSS Hire's terms and conditions state that employees cannot collect points for their personal Nectar account based on money spent by their employer.
Nectar points are available from HSS outlets and concessions in the UK and the Isle of Man, as well as for purchases made by telephone and through the company's web site.
