Introducing Digital Punch Cards 👊

Our First-to-Market Rewards Solution is Here: Meet Digital Punch Card 👊

If you run a coffee shop and offer one free coffee for every 10th punch on a punch card, customers are more incentivized to come back to buy your coffee more often. 

But why is that?

Research into human behavior reveals that the closer customers see themselves reaching a goal, the more likely they are to come back and order again until they reach it.

This is why we’ve built our new first-to-market feature, Digital Punch Cards!

Using a format most everyone can recognize, Digital Punch Cards are embedded directly into your customer portal and allow subscribers to see and visually track their rewards journey in real-time and then seamlessly apply rewards to upcoming orders.

Now, you can engage customers with their favorite punch cards – digitized

How Does It Work?

At Stay AI, we believe in creating highly visual subscriber journeys that keep customers engaged throughout their order cycles and show them their progress toward exciting and exclusive rewards.

This feature is easy to set up and is customizable to your needs. 

  • Step 1: Choose the number of “punches” 
  • Step 2: Select the incentive or reward to give subscribers who reach the last punch on their card – this can be a free order, product, and more
  • Step 3: Select a minimum order value required for subscribers to receive a punch to ensure all rewards are met after passing a specific threshold

Our Digital Punch Card widget lives in the upper portion of the customer portal dashboard, making it seamless for subscribers to log in and view their progress at any time to see how close they are to their next reward.

By gamifying the reward experience with fun, punchy visuals, Digital Punch Cards take rewards strategy to the next level.

Digital Punch Card & ExperienceEngine Work Hand-in-Hand

With ExperienceEngine, you can utilize our AI to split-test different products as gifts or the same product with varying discount amounts on a subscriber’s upcoming order to see which offers are the most successful in reducing churn in the cohorts identified as most likely to cancel. Digital Punch Cards take this a step further by providing an opportunity to surprise and delight subscribers at key milestones. 

By first using ExperienceEngine to determine which incentive works best for your target audience, you can decide what reward(s) will work best as incentives for your Digital Punch Card.

For example, let’s say your brand is trying to determine whether a free shaker bottle or a free key chain best optimizes retention. You can use ExperienceEngine to set up a free shaker bottle on order three and A/B test it against a free key chain. Through that A/B test, see which one has the highest success rate for retention and how the product and order cadence drive AOV. 

That data will directly impact how to set up Digital Punch Cards, allowing you to make data-driven decisions when selecting which product and order number should apply as the punch card incentive.

Stay AI sets your brand up for success with real data-powered analytics, backed by rigorous split-testing, that you can then apply to a Digital Punch Card that will run for six months, a year, or however long you want it to.

Get ready to take the subscriber journey further by offering your customers an unparalleled brand experience—and an even greater LTV.
