SPAR Switzerland celebrates successful first year of customer loyalty card

March 12, 2019 IN THE CATEGORY: Digital and Marketing

It’s been a year since SPAR Switzerland launched its customer loyalty card, SPAR Friends. Available in all SPAR Supermarkets in the country, the card has been hugely successful, attracting 150,000 members so far.

Instant benefits and discounts

Unlike many loyalty cards, the SPAR Friends card doesn’t require point collecting with customers benefitting from each purchase. Every week, in addition to the many SPAR promotions, SPAR Friends cardholders can take advantage of an additional four to five products on promotion at discounts of up to 50%. Furthermore, one cardholder a day has the chance of receiving a full reimbursement of a transaction.

SPAR Friends cardholders also receive a 10% shopping voucher on their birthday, which can be redeemed within two weeks. They also receive SPAR Switzerland’s customer magazine free of charge six times a year. The magazine includes recipes, valuable nutrition advice, customer benefits, and crafting and decoration ideas.

First anniversary raffle

To celebrate the first anniversary of the SPAR Friends card, SPAR Switzerland is organising a raffle for newly registered cardholders. The raffle participants have the chance of receiving one of 10 vouchers worth 100 Swiss Francs from the Switzerland Travel Centre. The lucky winners can discover their country by train or indulge in a stay in a luxury hotel.

The SPAR Friends customer card, which can also be used as a keychain, is available to all SPAR Switzerland customers aged 16 and older and can be found in any SPAR Supermarket in the country. Membership can be requested through the SPAR Friends App (via Google Play or the App Store), or at any SPAR Supermarket.

Information about SPAR Friends promotions and discounts is available on the SPAR Friends App, in the SPAR Switzerland Newsletter and in SPAR flyers.

About SPAR Switzerland

SPAR Switzerland, originally an independent family-owned company with a local shareholder structure, was founded in 1989, when it was granted the licence by SPAR International to operate the brand.

In 2000, the family-owned business was transformed into a holding company with three operating companies: SPAR Handels AG, TopCC AG and SPAR Management AG. This move helped to give the company a modern, future-oriented structure. The business has recorded steady growth over the years, combining corporate and independently owned stores, spanning forecourt retailing to large supermarkets.

In early 2016, SPAR Switzerland announced the sale of 60% of shares to SPAR Group Limited, South Africa. The existing management team and shareholders remain in the business.
