SpaFinder Launches Unique Spa Rewards Program – No Purchases Required


New York, NY (June 30, 2009) − Spafinder.com, which attracts millions of spa consumers to its award-winning, content-rich spa and wellness website, today announced SpaFinder Rewards, the first loyalty program that rewards consumers simply for sharing their opinion or booking a spa appointment online. As soon as they join, members immediately begin earning points toward $50, $100 - and even $500 - SpaFinder gift certificates, that can be redeemed at over 5,000 high-quality spas worldwide for treatments, getaway vacations, products and more.

SpaFinder’s program is designed to reward consumers for activities they normally perform at the popular spa portal. For years, spa enthusiasts have turned to SpaFinder.com to find a spa that best meets their needs from among the thousands of vacation, day and medical spas listed in SpaFinder’s online directory. Consumers can also earn points when they purchase gift certificates at SpaFinder.com.

Unlike rewards programs with time-limits and redemption restrictions, SpaFinder points never expire as long as the member takes some form of action every 18 months – whether simply posting a review or redeeming their points.

SpaFinder’s Rewards Program At A Glance:

* Rewarding Opinions, Not Just Purchases: For every spa review a member posts within the 5,000-plus SpaFinder.com database/social community, they earn 10 rewards points.

* Book Online, Rack Up Points: Each time a member books a treatment using the website’s convenient new online booking tool, SpaBooker, they earn two points for each $1 in treatments booked and completed.

* Give, and Receive: For each $1 spent on SpaFinder’s gift certificates, consumers earn a corresponding number of reward points. Spa certificates are one of the gift market’s fastest-growing categories, and SpaFinder has been the leader since the industry’s inception.

To join SpaFinder Rewards, consumers simply sign up for the popular Club Spa newsletter, and they’re instantly enrolled - and with a gift of 50 points at registration to get them started. For every 1,000 points accumulated, consumers earn a $50 gift certificate; for every 2,000 points they earn a $100 gift certificate; and for 10,000 points, a $500 gift certificate.

Club Spa members can also take advantage of ‘insider’ benefits like special spa deals delivered to their inbox, as well as exciting spa and wellness news, promotions and contests.

Sallie Fraenkel, Chief Operating Officer at SpaFinder, noted: “Spa-going has been transformed from an occasional ‘indulgence,’ and is increasingly a core part of people’s health and wellness regimes. With millions of regular, passionate spa-goers worldwide, and particularly in these stressful times, relaxation should have its rewards—and with our unique new program, it finally does.”
