Dreams Realised for GK Value Rewards Members

For young professional Collin Morgan, the idea of spending an entire day at the luxurious Jewel Runaway Beach Resort without handing over a penny promises to be one of the most exciting times of his life. And he intends to share it with his mother, whom he feels deserves to be pampered as a show of his appreciation for her undying love and support.

The promise of a day on the north coast, all expenses paid, is made possible by the GK Value Rewards (GKVR) Programme through which he has been able to save points for the day pass.

"Saving my points to show my mother a good time is so cool ... and was so easy. This programme gives each member a chance to enjoy some good times and to get well-needed products and services, just for spending at identified GraceKennedy subsidiaries," Collin said.

He intends to continue to save his GK Value Rewards points for a return trip to Jewel Runaway Beach Resort very soon.

"This programme could not have come at a better time -when the economy is challenging, yet Jamaicans want to enjoy the beauty of the island that so many visitors pay to experience," Collin continued.

Rebecca Munroe is a long-standing member of the Hi-Lo Preferred Customer programme, and she said: "The GKVR programme is easier and more flexible than the others that I know about. If I forget my card, they can search for my member ID using my phone number," she continued.

Both Rebecca and Collin are among hundreds of members who have benefited from rewards valued at more than $20 million since the GK Value Rewards programme was launched.

This year, members of the programme will see additional rewards added to the catalogue, as the company continues to make it even more attractive to existing and new members."

Points are earned when customers do transactions at: Bill Express, FX Trader, GK Insurance and Hi-Lo, and they also get double points if they use their First Global Bank credit card at these participating subsidiaries.
