Many businesses have found that loyalty cards are a good way to retain customers and reward them for continuous use of their services.
Customers, on the other hand, love the discounts, savings, and benefits they can get from a loyalty card.
Taking a cue from the business sector, the Pag-IBIG Fund also offers a loyalty card to its members. They came up with this program to show their appreciation of Pag-IBIG members by offering additional perks that go beyond housing loans.
“We want to maximize the value of Pag-IBIG membership through the Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card,” explained Florencio Galang, Jr., Officer-in-Charge of the Office of the Vice President for Public Relations and Information Services Group of the Pag-IBIG Fund.
“The project is our way of showing loyalty to our 16.4 million members, as it makes Pag-IBIG more relevant in the lives of Pag-IBIG members through benefits that they can enjoy more frequently. What we did was to tie up with private sector entities that can offer discounts and privileges to our Pag-IBIG members,” he added.
According to Jejomar Binay, former chairman of the Pag-IBIG Fund board of trustees, membership grew from 8.8 million in 2010 to 14.8 million in 2014 and 8,000 more are signing up every day to get one.—which means that many are now taking advantage of this benefit of having a loyalty card.
What is the Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card?
The Pag-IBIG Loyalty Card is an additional benefit Pag-IBIG members can apply for wherein they can enjoy discounts on purchases with several affiliated establishments.
The card may be used for groceries, gas, restaurants, health care clinics, schools, beauty clinics/salons, hardware stores, courier services, etc. Pag-IBIG has teamed up with 213 establishments so you will be able to utilize and maximize the usage of this card.
