A.S. Watson Group is delighted to launch the “Get Rewards Around The Town” 18 District Cross-Merchant Consumer Spending Stimulation Reward Scheme (“The Scheme”) on 16 September (Wednesday). MoneyBack members can simply use the MoneyBack App to enjoy a wide variety of in-store exclusive benefits from almost 3,000 outlets, ranging from major food and retail chains to small neighbourhood stores. The scheme aims to stimulate local consumption, which in turn will help to revitalise and give Hong Kong’s economy a much needed boost.

The Scheme is rolled out through the Moneyback platform, the largest loyalty programme in town, with the hopes to encourage retail and catering outlets to provide in-store offers and promote cross-merchant shopping in 18 districts. The scheme has received an overwhelming response since its launch in July. In just 2 weeks, 300 merchants and nearly 3,000 retail and catering outlets have participated in the scheme, including restaurants, fashion and accessories, social enterprises, health food, pets, sports goods and other merchant stores working together to support Hong Kong’s economy! Meanwhile, many new feature stores are also seizing this opportunity to reach out to more neighborhoods through the scheme.

Malina Ngai, Group COO of A.S. Watson Group and CEO of A.S. Watson (Asia & Europe), said, “A.S. Watson Group loves and cares about its community as all Hong Kong people do. Due to the pandemic, unemployment in the retail industry has hit its highest rate since the SARS crisis, while the food and beverage sector has also seen unemployment rates rising to 14.7% in July. People’s daily lives have been impacted significantly so we need to support each other during such a difficult time. As the situation eases, stimulating local consumption should be the first step to getting the economy back on track. Therefore, Moneyback has launched the “Get Rewards Around the Town” scheme donating 1.8 million face masks to encourage local consumer spending, in hopes to drive at least 1 million times the amount of spending which is equivalent to more than $50 million in retail sales.”
