Consumers can now say goodbye to every single pesky loyalty card in their wallets. Barkback’s new rewards program is the last punch card they’ll ever need! Barkback, a Santa Barbara-based startup, has created a way for locals to gain access to hundreds of rewards, right in the palm of their hand. Unlike the typical paper punch card, Barkback’s app offers hundreds of cards in one place and goes wherever the user goes. The best part is, Barkback automatically gives away the first punch for free at all participating business - no purchase necessary!
Users simply download the free Barkback app on iOS or Android to discover participating businesses in their area. Barkback has signed on thousands of users who already have access, and hundreds of punches have already been redeemed in just the first week of the loyalty launch. Barkback users can earn free tapas at Milk & Honey, free ice cream at McConnell’s, and even a free four-course dinner for two at Julienne! Because who doesn’t like free stuff?
Barkback began by providing a private feedback channel, and has since grown to improve all facets of the customer experience to create a stronger local community. Barkback’s new digital loyalty program helps local business owners grow their businesses by keeping and engaging with their most valuable consumers. Customers can get rewarded with free meals, receive personalized messages about exclusive promotions going on that day, and even respond to push notifications that ask about their dining experience. The Barkback app delivers all of these features and more, all at absolutely zero cost to the consumer.
Stay tuned, because Barkback is growing rapidly and rolling out new features every month: next up, the ability to unlock even greater rewards by sharing with friends and loved ones, all through the Barkback app. Staying connected has never been easier!
