NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Better Mortgage, a digital mortgage company trying to improve access to home financing through transparency, honest guidance and zero commissions, today announced that they will be one of the first third-parties to take advantage of Samsung Reward’s new API.
Samsung Rewards works just like a points-based airlines rewards program. Users are rewarded for meaningful engagements with their Samsung device – such as using Samsung Pay at checkout, using Bixby or signing up for features within Samsung Health -- through earning Samsung Rewards points. Now, with Samsung Rewards’ new API, Samsung and Better customers alike will get rewarded when they get pre-approved for a mortgage, lock in a rate or fund a transaction.
“Samsung and Better are both committed to using technology to improve people’s lives, which at its core, means removing friction from the process. At Better, we’ve made it possible to get pre-approved for a mortgage in as little as three to five minutes without the hassle of cold calls or bait-and-switch pricing,” says Better’s CEO Vishal Garg. “By integrating with Samsung Reward’s API, we’re able to provide an even better customer experience to a new audience who wants to do everything from paying for coffee to buying a home right from their phone.”
- Better Mortgage will be a featured partner in Samsung services.
- Samsung Rewards customers will be able to navigate to Better.com from Samsung services to earn points when they hit three milestones throughout the mortgage or refinancing process: (1) getting pre-approved, (2) locking in a rate, or (3) funding the transaction.
- Using the Samsung Rewards API, Better Mortgage can securely confirm that a customer has achieved these milestones.
- Samsung Rewards customers can use these points to redeem items such as Samsung products, gift cards, entries into Instant Win opportunities, or even redeem for a Samsung Rewards card.
“Our new Samsung Rewards API is really important to bring innovative developers such as Better Mortgage into the Samsung ecosystem and provide greater value to our customers. And now, Samsung customers can be rewarded with Rewards points as part of their online home buying journey,” said Nana Murugesan, Vice President and General Manager, Services and New Business at Samsung Electronics America.
