Creating happy family moments with Magnit

5 minutes

In 2018, Brandloyalty set about the mammoth task of launching the biggest ever loyalty campaign its history. Across more than 15,000 Magnit stores, BrandLoyalty gave shoppers the opportunity to collect for vivo | Villeroy & Boch ovenware with up to 97% discount. Magnit is one of the market-leading food retailers in Russia. The company is the leader in terms of the number of stores and territorial presence. BrandLoyalty and Magnit have had a productive partnership for four years, running numerous successful loyalty programs across single retail channels, which helped to attract new customers and to increase interest and excitement amongst existing customers.

Creating happy family moments with Magnit

Implementing a new loyalty strategy

In 2018, Magnit and BrandLoyalty established a clear loyalty strategy together: sharpen the offer for high valuable shoppers. With free (or almost free) A-branded rewards, we succeed in attracting and holding on to more loyal shoppers for Magnit and meet their needs.

Crossing all retail banners at once

Magnit still kept the desire to create one program for all regions and all retail formats. At that time, Magnit consisted of 13,424 convience stores, 467 supermarkets and 4,505 drugstores. In 2018, for the first time, a loyalty program was created to take place across such a big number of selling points. We designed a vivo | Villeroy & Boch ovenware range that could be bought for 19 weeks from September 2018, during the Christmas period untill January 2019. More than 30,000 pallets of products got shipped to the stores for the vivo | Villeroy & Boch program.

Creating a story

Creating a story

Hooking on one of todays' biggest consumer desires to have more quality time with families, we created a 'family time' theme that particularly focused on bringing families together.

To emphasize this, we developed an ovenware range for cooking fresh meals and eating together at the table. We all experienced that hosting a dinner party isn't as convenient as joining in at the table. Therefore, we focused on a concept and recipes to support shoppers in preparing meals upfront, saving time and effort.


Giving consumers a choice

Magnit offered consumers a choice - in this case, the choice of deciding how much discount they wanted to receive. For example, with 50 stamps, they could take advantage of a small discount on their selected product, while with a full card of 100 stamps, they could receive a discount of up to 97% on the product they wanted.

Different types of stamps

Different types of stamps

Two different types of stamps were created. The small stamps required a spend of RUB 250 in Magnit's mini-stores and pharmacies, while the big stamps (worth 2 small stamps each) were given out for each RUB 500 spent in supermarkets and cosmetic stores. In addition, a special shape and font were used in unique stamps.


Digitally enhanced experience

Throughout the Magnit vivo | Villeroy & Boch program, an exciting addition that drove the promotion's popularity was digital participation by customers. Inspired by the idea of recipe sharing, shoppers were encouraged to share their favorite recipes, with the chance of being rewarded with special points or prizes. More than 30,000 people downloaded the program app during the program, and more than 1,000 recipes were uploaded onto the sharing page. In addition, shoppers could use in-store touch panels to find a recipe and print it out.

Seeing the results at the checkout

In addition to the sheer number of uploaded recipes, shoppers were happy to save for vivo | Villeroy & Boch products returning regularly to ensure they could save enough stamps to complete their collection.
