ION Rewards users now have access to the nation’s largest mobile rewards marketplace, consisting of 100,000 retail locations including top brands in apparel, automotive, coffee shops, electronics, entertainment, movie theaters, home improvement, hotels, office supplies, restaurants and sporting goods. The first truly universal loyalty rewards program, ION Rewards combines secure and convenient mobile payments (no physical card required) with instant rewards, essentially paying users to pay with their phones.
Purchases are completed with two taps in the app using a linked credit or debit card or a third tap to apply earned IONs toward any purchase during checkout. Users earn 2 percent or more of every purchase completed, in real-time, with no pending wait periods, and on top of any rewards they may receive from their bank or credit card provider. IONs spend like cash on anything, any time at any merchant in the ION marketplace; there are no restrictions and IONs never expire. Users also earn 2,000 IONs for simply downloading the app, setting up an account and completing the email verification process.
“Today’s savvy consumers expect mobile payments and loyalty rewards to be convenient, simple and have no limitations,” Ronald Herman, CEO and founder of Sionic Mobile, explained. “There are plenty of loyalty programs available but most are confusing and have restrictions that make them difficult to use. We wanted to create the ultimate user experience by first building the largest variety, multi-channel merchant marketplace where consumers shop or dine regularly. Next, we made rewards immediate, relevant and easy to earn and spend at any ION merchant with no strings attached.”
The fourth generation ION Rewards app uses proprietary, three-tier fraud detection technology, providing one of the most secure mobile payments and rewards platforms available today. The app also leverages tokenized payment processing to protect consumers, merchants and banks.
