TORONTO, Sept. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Points (TSX:PTS) (Nasdaq:PCOM), the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, has extended its existing relationship with the AIR MILES Reward Program, Canada's most recognized loyalty program, to further leverage the Points Travel services. Through the expanded relationship, AIR MILES Collectors have the ability to use Miles when booking on over 330,000 hotels across the globe through Points’ industry-leading white label hotel booking platform.
Through a single integration with Points’ Loyalty Commerce Platform, which powers the Points Travel services, AIR MILES is offering its Collectors a wider range of redemption opportunities with a world-class hotel supply. This program enhancement is following a successful partnership launch in 2016, which saw AIR MILES leverage Points’ platform to offer its Collectors the ability to earn miles on hotel stays through Points Travel services.
“We are thrilled to expand our relationship with AIR MILES, creating enhanced engagement opportunities for the AIR MILES Reward Program,” said Rob MacLean, CEO of Points. “This new offering empowers AIR MILES Collectors to do more with their miles. We look forward to continuing to support their program growth, leveraging our platform to power new features and offering more flexibility to members for years to come.”
Points Travel can be quickly integrated into any loyalty program's web and mobile properties to create a highly-converting, travel eCommerce offering that is program-branded and leverages the capabilities of the Points Loyalty Commerce Platform. The user experience is simple and intuitive, taking members from consideration to purchase in just a few clicks, ultimately rewarding members with thousands of points or miles as well as being able to redeem points for bookings at thousands of hotels and car rental companies around the world.
