Rewards4Racing is the UK's first ever rewards programme dedicated to fans of the turf and is operated by The Jockey Club, the largest commercial group in British horseracing.
More than 250 popular high street and online retailers with over 3,000 outlets have signed up to be part of the Rewards4Racing loyalty programme, which offers its members the ability to accrue points from everyday purchases. Examples of participating retailers include Marks & Spencer, Sainsbury's, Tesco, Boots, amazon.co.uk, B&Q, John Lewis, iTunes, thetrainline.co.uk, Debenhams, Thomas Cook, Blockbuster, Hotels.com, Austin Reed and Halfords.
Rewards4Racing points can be turned into a series of racing rewards at all 14 of The Jockey Club's racecourses, including Wincanton. Rewards include food and beverage discounts or free items, free tickets, ticket upgrades, hospitality packages, free racecards and special 'money can't buy' items that will be introduced regularly.
Rewards4Racing is free to join for all Jockey Club Racecourses customers. Anyone who buys an advance ticket online for any of The Jockey Club's 14 racecourses will be enrolled in the programme and given membership details.
The programme uses award-winning cardless technology, so that members do not need to carry yet another card in their wallet. Instead, members gain points at participating online retailers by clicking through to their sites from www.Rewards4Racing.com. For purchases in store, spend is tracked and members collect points once members have registered their payment cards at the secure Rewards4Racing website. To claim rewards, Rewards4Racing members should simply visit www.Rewards4Racing.com and select their preferred offers across The Jockey Club's portfolio of racecourses.
Speaking at the launch of Rewards4Racing, Paul Fisher, Chief Operating Officer of Jockey Club Racecourses, said:
"The Jockey Club's Rewards4Racing loyalty programme is all about giving something extra back to racing fans for their support. Simply by making purchases on the high street, online and on our racecourses, members will earn rewards quickly to make their racing experience that little bit more special.
Our research shows that most people who come racing absolutely love it, but we need to give them more reasons to be loyal, so that a once-a-year visit turns into enjoying our sport more regularly. We believe British racing's first ever rewards programme is one major way to do that and help take another step forward in a highly competitive sport and leisure environment."
Fisher noted that already frequent racegoers will enjoy the benefits of the loyalty programme:
"As well as a means of encouraging people to go racing more often, it'll be great for racegoers who already visit us regularly. We'll be able to reward their loyalty through Rewards4Racing, which they've told us is high up on their wish list."
