True retail therapy: reaping rewards from your weekly shop

4 October 2019

Imagine having the weekly shop delivered next-day to your door and getting rewarded for it. Doesn’t sound too shabby, does it? Or a day spent picking up toiletry bits and bobs in Boots, a new phone charger in Currys, something for the kids in Smyths, and then heading home in a taxi – all the while knowing you’ve cashback coming back into your account after your day’s spending.

These are the kind of retail perks that permanent tsb customers have enjoyed thanks to GoREWARDS, which has led Ireland’s new-fangled, forward-thinking cashback offerings.

As our shopping becomes more flexible, our tolerance levels for being tied to a single retailer and jumping through hoops for deals is understandably dropping.

The big decluttering of our wallets and bags is underway: take all those loyalty cards you signed up for years ago, clutch them to your chest and see how many of them really spark joy. It’s high time you let your debit card do the talking when it comes to being rewarded for your retail loyalty. Ready to make cashback less complicated?

The rewarding way forward

That’s where cashback reward programmes come in. In partnership with Visa, Current Account holders can avail of cashback deals from big high street players by simply getting on with their shopping. With GoREWARDS having kicked off this quiet but effective revolution in 20161, permanent tsb continues to innovate on behalf of the customer.

So how does GoREWARDS work?

It's really as simple as using your Visa Debit Card to redeem offers from a bunch of your favourite brands.

To get started, sign up for free with your email address. It's available to personal Current Account holders over the age of 16, and you can add up to 5 cards.

From there, your shopping choices serve to create a kind of private breadcrumb trail, allowing us to make your GoREWARDS as relevant as possible. Every week, you'll receive fresh, personalised offers directly related to the kinds of things you like to buy.

Once you've signed in and find an offer that takes your fancy, you can redeem it by paying with your registered card. The cashback takes care of itself, appearing in your account within 5 working days. It's a handy way of avoiding a situation where cashback deals aren't matching with your everyday shopping habits.

What kind of deals can I expect?

The kind of retailers who have partnered with GoREWARDS also takes care of that. A wide variety of needs are met. For example, partnerships at time of writing include Currys, Boots, Dunnes Stores, Smyths and FreeNow. Offers are subject to change, with the evolving list of deals keeping things fresh on a weekly basis. One-time offers, like getting €5 back on your cinema trip to Omniplex, have previously popped up as extra treats.

It's all achieved without placing cumbersome admin between you and your money. Intuitive and effortless. No vouchers. No coupons. No codes.
