We believe there’s nothing more exciting than being nominated for the Oscars of the loyalty industry: the Loyalty Magazine Awards. Each year, industry experts honour the organisations that are excelling and achieving the extraordinary in our industry. We are delighted to announce that all our entries have been nominated but reinforce that without our clients, partners and consumers worldwide we wouldn’t be able to revolutionize loyalty and create impact across the globe. Our nominations are summed up below.
Nominated in two categories: Best Social Corporate Responsibility (CSR) Initiative Linked to Loyalty and Best Short Term Loyalty Initiative.
To help families In Australia develop healthier eating habits, supermarket chain Coles ran a promotion offering Fresh Stikeez – small, fruit-shaped characters – as giveaways. The aim of the Stikeez campaign was twofold. Firstly, it would stimulate sales by giving customers a free fruit or veggie Stikeez character for each $30 AUD spent in the store. Secondly – and no less importantly – it would promote healthy eating by challenging Australian kids to eat fruit and veg in all colours of the rainbow every day by taking ‘The Rainbow Challenge’.
The cute Fresh Stikeez quickly became a hype throughout the country. They improved Aussie kids' eating habits, increased Coles' turnover, and powerfully linked the supermarket brand to fresh, family food.

Nominated in two categories: Best Use of Gamification to Enhance Loyalty and Best Short Term Loyalty Initiative.
Together with Kaufland International, BrandLoyalty took millions of children and their parents on an unforgettable Star Wars mission, inspiring them to leave their everyday life behind for just a moment. For two months over the busy Christmas period last year, the Kaufland supermarket chain ran a 'spend-and-get' (instant loyalty) programme called 'Mastering the Force', based on the latest Star Wars movie. For each €10 they spent in-store, shoppers received a Star Wars card as a reward. Customers could also buy a collector's album in which to display all 48 cards.
So far, so traditional. But as befits a promotion built around the iconic Star Wars story, fans of the saga could get their hands on some of the most advanced technology the loyalty universe has ever offered. Read more in our case study!
Nominated in the category Best New Loyalty Launch of the Year.
To celebrate the 24th anniversaries of Carrefour China and Toy Story, BrandLoyalty teamed up with Disney to launch its first Instant Loyalty Promotion in China. Built around Toy Story 4 'Micropopz' giveaways, the omnichannel programme focused on increasing traffic, digitally enhancing customer loyalty, and creating a magical retail experience.
Our Toy Story 'Micropopz' toys proved an instant success, bringing joy and excitement to millions of Carrefour shoppers, while leveraging new ways to reach millennials and shoppers via one of Disney’s most recognisable franchises in China. Next to that, we were able to enhance digital customer loyalty via the specially developped WeChat app platform which drove 250,000 customers to sign up for the digital platform on the first day!
