What is Checkout With Points?

Market checkout with points

Checkout With Points is an easy and convenient way for cardholders to redeem their rewards points for a discount directly at checkout. Cardholders simply use their rewards card at the time of purchase to score a discount toward a qualifying purchase at merchants like Walmart, CVS, Walgreens, and more!*

If your financial institution currently offers Checkout With Points, part of ampliF’s innovative Real-Time Rewards suite, our marketing experts are sharing three tactics to help educate and market Checkout With Points to your cardholders.


1. Develop an Awareness Email Campaign

An awareness email campaign is considered to be one of the most effective strategies to keep consumers engaged with your brand. The key to a successful awareness email is to be informative and consistent. The email you develop should include basic information about what Checkout WIth Points is and simple steps of how it works. We recommended incorporating the three simple steps below within your email content to make your message relevant and valuable to cardholders.

  2. 2. Select: If you have enough points and your transaction qualifies, select “yes” when the screen prompts you to redeem your offer.
  3. 3. Save: Checkout & save! Score a $5 or $10 discount* to immediately apply to your qualifying purchase.
