The app allows consumers to manage their Spinx Xtras loyalty card by earning gas discount rewards, redeeming gas discount rewards at the pump and paying for their purchases at the store via mobile payment.
Customers can receive a five-cent-per-gallon discount when using Xtras to pay for their fuel purchase.
Spinx marks the first c-store retailer to offer a mobile app combining a loyalty program with a method of payment option, thus eliminating the need for customers to carry a physical card, while still providing easy access to their Xtras rewards balance.
National Payment Card Association is processing payment transactions for the app via the Federal Reserve’s Automated Clearing House network. To make a payment, consumers must link their Xtras card to their bank account, thereby creating an electronic check.
“It was very important for us to provide our customers with a heavily secured payment processing platform,” said Stan Storti, executive vice president and chief financial officer for The Spinx Co. “We want to offer our customers the best value in the safest manner.”
The app is available for free in Apple’s App Store and Android’s Google Play.
