An overwhelming 32 percent of participants came in once a week or more during the promotion.
Best Mobile Loyalty Innovation – The Greene TurtleGreene Turtle Rewards Gamification.”
In a competitive market for mobile apps, The Greene Turtle’s Turtle Rewards app has distinguished itself by engaging consumers with sports-related games and prizes that connect beautifully with the casual dining chain’s sports-loving, competitive guests.  User-friendly iOS and Android versions of the app serve as powerful guest-acquisition tools, registering guests in the program in order to play and receive rewards, quickly generating a positive financial impact on the business. Guests who played the games visit 89 percent more than The Greene Turtle’s average guest and spend 58 percent more than that same pool of guests.
Most Relevant Messaging – Duffy’s Sports Grill “Big Game Giveaway” was designed to keep fans coming in to the Florida-based sports bar throughout the NFL season – whether or not the guests’ favorite teams were winning or losing.
Best Loyalty Launch Winner – Beggars Pizza’s new loyalty program, the “Big Cheese Club,” was built for fast enrollment to ensure the loyalty program quickly made a positive business impact. In just six months, Beggars’ loyalty program met all of its goals for enrollment and registration, including a 7% boost in millennial enrollment.
Best Social Innovation – Thorntons “Matching Gift Campaign” leveraged the gas and convenience chain’s Paytronix-powered Refreshing Rewards program to simplify donations and reporting for the first localized charity campaign with the University of Louisville. As part of the partnership Thorntons integrated a donate-at-the-pump element, which contributed to the $6 million goal being met with guests donating $3 million dollars and Thorntons matching every contribution. With the Paytronix system in place and its first local market promotion successfully completed in Louisville, Thorntons is ready to execute additional campaigns that allow them to engage with their individual markets and give back to the communities it serves.
