Tim Winship one of the World's most influential Frequent Flyer writers and regularly quoted in the mainstream media, including the New York Times, USA Today, Business Week, Kiplinger's, Money, CNN, MSNBC, and Wall Street Journal, states "LoyaltyMatch could be the next big thing". From SmarterTravel
is the first and only place where loyalty program points and miles can be
converted into cash or merchandise from other programs. At LoyaltyMatch.com
shoppers can find members and pay cash to them for rewards from their programs.
That’s good news for all the frustrated loyalty program members who can never
seem to find what they really want. They can get cash to buy airline seats, they
can pay off debt or just use the money to have some fun. They can also shop for
thousands of items that they can buy or for which they can trade with other
LoyaltyMatch.com members. People who are not members of any loyalty programs can
also shop on the site.
All new member first transactions are free and
subsequent transactions are only $1.99 CAD each. In addition, 1 % of the funds
generated by each transaction is donated evenly to the Canadian Cancer Society
and World Wildlife Fund. There is also a Community Commerce section of the site
where members can sell loyalty program rewards for cash which can be passed on
to the local charity of their choice: http://www.loyaltymatch.com/LoyaltyMatch/communitycommerce.action
is also great news for the loyalty programs. They can benefit directly through
expansion of their offerings to online shoppers and the potential to reduce the
billions of dollars of financial liability that unused points and miles leave on
their corporate balance sheets each year.
