Innovation within the clubs industry

How the humble debit card is providing innovation within the clubs industry

When it comes to spending club rewards points, Community First has been working with rewards program providers and participating clubs to give members the ability to spend their rewards points at thousands more places. 

Community First has developed a unique account with a Visa Debit Card, designed to integrate with the rewards or loyalty program of participating clubs. Unlike traditional redeeming methods, members are able to transfer earned points to dollars on their Visa Debit Card, opening up thousands of new places to spend rewards points as the card can be used anywhere Visa is accepted.

Traditionally, club members redeem points via gift cards, or by other in-club purchases. An additional benefit of using a Community First Visa Debit Card linked to a participating rewards program is that reward points don't ever have to expire once they are transferred to dollars on the Visa Debit Card. This offers a huge benefit to members, as points can be accumulated over a longer period of time which means added value.

Community First has already launched the product across a number ofNSWclubs thanks to the established partnership with a number of rewards program providers. 

Community First continues to work within the clubs industry to use innovation to add value and meet the needs of the communities in which we live and work.
