TorbCoin: A Brief History
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, 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), more like Pogs.
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). Redeemable in December only.
