100 free B2B / B2C Privilege Card memberships for BARBIE members!

The Privilege Card is a 3-in-1 loyalty card concept unifying consumers, businesses and suppliers.

The concept is to promote local and independent businesses whilst offering consumers a nominal discount and/or value-added service at partner businesses.

Similarly, businesses will also benefit from increased consumer patronage and secure better rates with suppliers.

Sponsored by Matthew Clark, some of the local partners include: Audi Bristol, Mint Room, Rosemarino, Fraser Besant Lighting, Bristol Film Festival and others.

We have secured 100 complimentary business memberships of the Privilege Card for our BARBIE members ahead of a major marketing push, and these will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis.

Relevant to businesses that are willing to offer a nominal discount to members.
