JN rewards members with attractive discounts

Along with its ongoing Financial Literacy Programme, which teaches the principles of money management to enable members to become frugal spenders and be smart with their money, Jamaica National recently launched its JN Rewards Programme.

The programme allows members to benefit from attractive discounts at participating Rewards Partners. The objective is to promote savings.

The JN Rewards Programme features 'Rewards Partners' located across the island, offering up to 20 per cent in discounts on products and services in categories such as hotel and travel, food and drinks, beauty and spa, health and wellness, automotive and home-and-garden supplies.

Debbie-Ann Williams, partnership and community relations officer, Jamaica National, said the launch of the JN Rewards Programme is part of a rebranding exercise for the initiative, formerly the JN Discount Merchant Programme.

"We are making a more vigorous push for the rewards programme; and will increase its visibility, so that more JN members are aware of the savings benefits," Williams explained.

"One of Jamaica National's priorities is to find ways in which our members can achieve financial independence, and savings and investments, through proper money management, is of great importance. Therefore, being able to benefit from discounts on merchandise will directly impact on their ability to save," Williams outlined.

She said approximately 100 JN Rewards Partners are on board, the list is growing and members simply need to use their JN cards to automatically qualify for the savings.

"All that is required is a JN debit, credit, money transfer or retirement card," she said.

"The cards are swiped at the point of purchase. However, if, for whatever reason, you are not using your card to pay, then you can show the card, pay with cash and receive the benefit of the discount."

As the summer season rolls into place, Williams encouraged members to be on the lookout for JN-Branded Rewards Partners, for discounts on those "well-needed items and services," to make the summer months a more cost-effective and enjoyable purchasing period.
