TorbCoin: A Brief History

 Every  TorbCoin  has a value

Every TorbCoin has a value

(In-Progress, Launching January 2019) Here at 718, we have been searching for a customer rewards tool that made getting involved with the shop even more rewarding. All of the solutions we found were digital/phone-based, and seemed like things we would never implement.

So, we decided to make our own collectible coins and currency, rewarded for various feats and purchases, and redeemable for cool stuff.

Very low-tech, collectible and fun…think of it as the opposite of BitCoin (whatever that is)

Each TorbCoin has a value on the back. Save up for some great items and perks. Or, keep them in a drawer somewhere like you did with those old Chuck E, Cheese tokens (incidentally, Chuck E. Cheese just went from tokens to a “Stored Value Card”, so we are definitely going in the right direction).
