Community Rewards Overview
Michael’s IGA Community Rewards program will carry on the great community support that the L<eongatha Supermarket has been known for over many years.
Our pledge is to support community groups through every shopper scanning a new Community Rewards Key Tag, and community groups can benefit by receiving 1% of these purchases back in a cheque at the Big Cheque days held at the end of the fundraising year usually in September.
Michael’s commitment to the substantial funds that this program will generate is significant in such a competitive business. Our approach to this is that our customers and the community are our shareholders and therefore we have pledged a large portion of our profits to this program 365 days a year.
The program makes sponsorship support fair and available for all eligible local community organisations, so in reality it has no limits.
How the program works
Customers join the Michael’s IGA Community Rewards program instore by receiving a bar coded key tag that needs to be scanned at the checkout each time they shop at Michael’s IGA. Customers have the choice on joining, to allocate their points to a community group or collect personal rewards for those points or a combination of both.
The basis for points is one point for every $1 spent plus numerous bonus points ranging from 5-50 points for specific single ticketed product purchases.
Michael’s IGA Community Fund.
Michael’s also manage a Community Grants fund, this fund generates money through specific product purchases as well as point donations from customers wishing to share their points amongst the community apart from the groups listed to the right. These Grants are generally decided on an annual basis depending on funds available.
