If you love earning cashback on your day-to-day shopping, then you really need spree in your life!

When payday rolls around, do you get the urge to head out to your favourite high-street store and indulge yourself in something a little special? It’s perfectly natural of course; and if you work 5 days a week, 52 weeks of the year, it’s only right you reward yourself for your efforts with a little (or large) treat.

But once you’ve put all your new clothes away, setup your newly purchased tech or finished that lovely meal, do you perhaps feel just a slight pang of guilt? That nagging voice that says, ‘hmm you didn’t really need to spend that much on those shoes’ or ‘you should have waited until the sales to get that new TV ’. All perfectly natural. After all, in today’s uncertain economic times, you never know what’s around the corner and consumers have every right to be savvy with their money and should look to make it stretch as far as possible.

So, how can you reward yourself and help reward your staff without having that nagging doubt. What if, you could visit all your favourite stores and earn unlimited cashback whilst you do - all without needing to open your purse or wallet?

SPREE: NEVER PAY FULL PRICE AT YOUR FAVOURITE STORES AGAIN!

With the Spree card, you can do all that – and more! It’s a pre-paid card which you can load up like a normal re-useable gift card and use just like your normal debit card. But, unlike normal pre-paid cards, Spree has unique features that make it an essential companion to the savviest of shopper – and here’s 7 reasons why we think it can add real value to your shopping trips:

1. IT GIVES YOU ACCESS TO EXCLUSIVE CASHBACK OFFERS

Let’s be honest – we’re all a little bit tight when it comes to spending our hard-earned cash. And there’s nothing wrong with that! It’s only fair that when we spend our money, we do it knowing we’re not paying over the odds. And this is something you can be sure of when using a Spree pre-paid card.

We’ve built up a huge network of partners over the course of Spree’s 12 years in the game, meaning that our pre-paid card members can get access to unlimited cashback deals at a great variety of retailers!

2. SPREE PRE-PAID CARDS LET YOU EARN CASHBACK ON YOUR DAY-TO-DAY SHOPPING

Spree pre-paid card members can earn cashback when they spend on their day-to-day goods and services; not just big purchases!

Let’s say you pop into Sainsbury’s to grab some lunch – by using your Spree card, you’d get cashback on any purchase you make, adding to your cashback total. Perhaps you head to Boots after work to get some sun tan lotion and holiday supplies – By using your Spree card, you’d also get cashback on all purchases.

But, the best part is that you can keep doing this too, as the amount of cashback you can earn is unlimited! Before you realise it, you’ve managed to save a significant amount of cashback to spend on something really special – all by simply using Spree for your normal day-to-day shopping.

3. CASHLESS SHOPPING WITH APPLE PAY & ANDROID PAY

Spree cards allow users to pay in stores with just their mobile phones using either Apple Pay or Google Pay – so regardless of whether you are an iPhone or Android user, we’ve got you covered!

Using Apple Pay or Google Pay means that Spree cardholders don’t have to worry about taking cash or credit or debit cards with them wherever they go. And with mobile devices often featuring fingerprint or facial recognition security features, it makes this form of payment infinitely more secure than cash or regular debit or credit cards.

4. ADDITIONAL RETAILER CASHBACK & DISCOUNT DEALS WITH THE SPREE APP

The Spree App is a clever little program that gives Spree cardholders access to the best cashback offers relevant to their location – meaning no more having to traipse around crowded shopping centres looking for a bargain.

Many of our retailers will also offer their own additional offers to further incentivise potential bargain hunters – handy for the January sales! These are automatically added by the retailers; users can then scroll through the best deals at their own leisure. Plus, the app also lets users check their card balance, top up their Spree card and manage their card all whilst on the move and all in one place.

5. THE POWER OF VISA

Unlike some other pre-paid cards out there, Spree pre-paid cards work in exactly the same way as your normal Visa debit card – so you can be sure that if you have money on your card, you can use it in exactly the same way as your usual debit card! Not only can it be used in-store with mobile-pay, chip & pin or contactless, but you can also use it whilst shopping on-line.

6. SPREE HELPS BOOST ENGAGEMENT IN THE WORKPLACE

Our Spree card has proven a hit over cash incentives as it can act as a more meaningful and longer-lasting reward or incentive. As it gives cardholders access to cashback rewards, organisations both large and small have learnt the essential value of helping their workforce’s wages stretch for longer by enabling them to earn cashback whenever and just about wherever they shop.

Financial worries are one of the biggest causes of stress in the workplace; by helping alleviate this, you not only sow the seeds for a successful company culture, but also shows staff that you care about their financial wellbeing.

But we don’t just hand over a stack of cards to companies and leave them to it – we’re also on hand to support organisations in any way they need with their engagement strategies; with dedicated account managers and a customer service line for all cardholders. We also work with organisations on effective strategies that gets the word out about these awesome cards and making sure people are getting the most out of them.

7. IT’S ONLY GOING TO GET BETTER AND BETTER

We don’t like just resting on our laurels when we’ve done something great, so we’re always looking at new ways to make Spree even more intuitive, user friendly and simply a must-have item. It’s one of the reasons why we have developed Google Pay and Apple Pay functionality (earning a prestigious Emerging Payments Association Award nomination in the process!) and with our list of partners always growing, Spree pre-paid card members can look forward to even more great deals in the future!
