How To Appeal to a Kiwi? With Reward Points
• Warehouse Money conducted a nationwide Warehouse Money Matters Survey
• Warehouse Money Matters Survey involved four key areas: insurance, credit cards, sources of information and savings
• The survey revealed 42% of Kiwis with a credit card use their card to collect reward points
Financial services provider Warehouse Money has conducted a nationwide survey to find out more about ordinary Kiwis’
relationship with credit cards and insurance.
The Warehouse Money Matters Survey revealed 42% of Kiwis with a credit card say they use them to collect reward points.
Hadyn Halls, Executive General Manager for Warehouse Money says this largely comes down to the feeling of fulfilment
they get from using their cards. “Reward points incentivise the use of credit cards for card users. It’s about creating
a win-win experience for the user.”
“Warehouse Money has two credit cards with the Warehouse Money Purple Visa Card in particular directly meeting the
consumer's desire for rewards,” says Halls.
The Warehouse Money Purple Visa Card earns two Purple Dollars every time a customer spends $150 at The Warehouse
in-store or online and one Purple Dollar for every $150 spent elsewhere. The rewards can only be redeemed in store at
The Warehouse and the card also charges no set up, annual fee or additional cardholder fees. The Warehouse Money Purple
Visa Card was awarded a 5-star rating for outstanding value by Canstar in its recent Credit Card Rewards star ratings.
Halls says the Warehouse Money Matters Survey was established to get a better understanding of all Kiwis’ thinking
around how they want to save their money.
Some of the questions included:
• How many credit cards do you currently hold?
• Who do you currently have a credit card with?
• There are many reasons why people choose not to obtain a credit card. Can you please tell us why you don’t currently
have a credit card?
• And what is the most important reason why you don’t have a credit card?
“We wanted to get a better understanding of how much Kiwis knew when it came down to their personal finances – including
what they’re missing, their level of comfort with money and what they consider when it comes to their funds, insurance
and savings,” says Halls.
