    While I wish the company good luck on their pilot run, as a consumer I find nothing new, innovative or intriguing about this. Many companies and restaurants offer their own rewards or have the opportunity to do so with out the addition of using a secondary company or an additional fee. It doesn't cost much to have a rewards program, as a simple business card with a stamp works for "buy 5 get one free" and has so for many years. I know I will still go to Coffee Company A because the coffee is better, not Coffee Company B because I get a reward.

    Tammy like it or not that is the consumer mind frame, and always has been. If you don't like that mentality then you shouldn't have started a business. You should be taking opportunities like these to connect to your customer's in a way that you haven't before, and support other local businesses in the process. Stay with, or ahead, of new consumer trends, just like this, will mean the difference in a business succeeding and failing. It is great to see local developers coming out with products like this. Congrats guys.

    As a business owner, I am so tired of this sense of entitlement of people expecting product for free. Even asking for discounts when there is already one in place once you reach a certain amount of items purchased. I am not looking to attract customers that want the best for less, but, rather pay a fair price for a great product! Just because you buy 10, does not mean you are entitled to get the 11th one free or rack up points to get something free!

      Perhaps you may be right but that just means you don't fall into the target market. Clearly not every product is made for everyone and this is one of those situations. It will offer businesses the chance to use a loyalty program who would not normally have the resources to offer one and also makes it easier for the customer by not having a million cards to keep track of.

      As a consumer I agree; the last thing we need is more of this "Buy three and get one free ........... malarkey", when I only need two! Discount and 'bonus' schemes are unecessary; just allow the retailer to sell competitively.
