Cash back Card: One loyalty card for all business sectors
Shopping has never been so easy: The Lyoness Cash back Card works just like a classic loyalty card but, unlike other popular loyalty cards – with this card the Members receive money back directly in their bank account. With every purchase they make, money accumulates in the Member’s personal Cash Account. As soon as $10.00 has accumulated, Lyoness transfers the money to the Member’s personal bank account.
Shop, receive money back and do something good
The Lyoness Child & Family Foundation was founded in 2008 as an independent charitable organization, which supports national and international aid projects under the slogan “Education. Opportunities. Future”. The Lyoness Greenfinity Foundation (GFF) was established in 2011 as a non-profit foundation. It is a politically independent, charitable organization that advocates sustainable environmental protection, realizes innovative climate protection projects worldwide, and promotes the use of renewable energy. With every purchase they make Lyoness Members support the projects of both Lyoness Foundations.
The businesses who present the free card to their patron and ask them to become members and to shop loyal to the Lyoness Merchants create a win, win, win for the community.
So what does it mean for the community? Every time a member who got a Free Card from a Lyoness Merchant or Member shops anywhere in the globe or on-line a small part of the money comes back to our community in the form of loyalty cash back and member benefits to the member who gave the person the card.
With every purchase the member will receive credit up to 2% of the purchase value on his/her Cash Account, thus saving a continually increasing amount in his personal Cash Account. From a certain amount, it will be paid to the private bank account of the member, without any deductions.
