Save while you spend

With the constant rise in the cost of living, many consumers are feeling financially pressured and are constantly looking for ways to save money and stretch their budgets.

In addition to the traditional savings channels, have you considered joining a rewards programme that can help you save while you spend on everyday expenses?

The Own Your Life Rewards programme from Liberty will save you money and give you access to experiences you thought might not be possible in your current financial situation, such as a spa pamper session, eating out with friends, renovating your home or taking a family holiday at the end of the year.

The best part is that all members get the full discount as advertised and the savings are immediate.

You don’t have to tirelessly accumulate points before you are able to enjoy the benefits at higher tiers or levels. Simply redeem your rewards directly from affiliates using the different methods available (depending on the outlet).

There are more than 70 top-notch partners to choose from, with a total of 100 reward offerings across health, shopping, fitness, communication, entertainment and travel.

Some of Liberty’s most popular partners include Virgin Active, Planet Fitness, Vodacom, Nu Metro, Exclusive Books, Sandton City parking, Barloworld, Mangwanani Day spa, Hirsch's Home Store and Makro.

Since the launch of the programme, just over a year ago, Liberty has saved its Own Your Life members in excess of R64-million, about R500 per person per member.

“The thinking behind Own Your Life rewards was not to be ‘just another’ rewards programme that clients sign-up for and soon forget about because they feel the effort is not worth the benefit they receive.

“Also, with South Africans becoming savvier with their money and looking for real value, we wanted to make a significant difference to their lives by putting cash back into their pockets.

“We used our industry knowledge to introduce quality partners that will enhance our members’ every day lives and actually make a difference,” says Sonja Fourie, divisional director for strategy at Liberty Own Your Life.

The innovative rewards programme is also the first in the market to introduce mobi apps for Blackberry, Android and iPhone, thereby giving members quick and easy access to their discounts on a device of their choice.
