RewardsPay Partners With Scandinavian Airlines (SAS) to Allow EuroBonus Members to Pay With EB Points for Online Shopping

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 14, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- RewardsPay, Inc. (www.rewardspay.com), an innovative payment platform that enables frictionless redemption of loyalty and rewards points at online merchants, announced today that it has teamed up with SAS, one of Europe's leading airlines with more than 27 million passengers per year, to enable SAS's EuroBonus members to redeem their points for popular goods and services at leading online merchant sites.

RewardsPay also announced today that it has added the fashion site Boozt.com and the gifting site Smartbox, two successful online retailers, to its growing list of merchant partners. Boozt.com and Smartbox join other merchants including iTunes™, Facebook, World Golf Tour, Livemocha, Runescape, and many others allowing EuroBonus members to redeem their points for fashion apparel, shoes, gifts, music, movies, books, games and more through instant redemptions on the merchant web site.

"We are very excited to be able to offer our EuroBonus members an additional way to spend their points," said Nils Lindhe, Vice President Loyalty at SAS. "At SAS, we always aim to provide simplicity to our customers. Not everyone has the time and ability to fly for the points they've collected, and they appreciate being able to use their reward points to get the things they really want, wherever and whenever they want them."

RewardsPay makes redeeming EuroBonus points with merchants extremely easy and seamless. Shoppers simply select the RewardsPay payment button on the checkout page of a merchant's website, or browse through the EuroBonus rewards portal for participating merchants. EuroBonus members decide how much of the payment to make with points, and RewardsPay facilitates a real-time transaction that draws from the member's account.

"RewardsPay is a remarkable platform that enables our customers to increase their spending power by tapping into their EuroBonus points to make all or part of a payment," said Peter G. Jørgensen, CMO of Boozt.com. "The RewardsPay payment option is quick and easy, and allows EuroBonus members to use their points to purchase clothes and accessories from the more than 300 well-known fashion brands on our site."

EuroBonus members can start redeeming once they have accrued as little as 1,000 points. For more information, or to redeem EuroBonus points at RewardsPay merchants, consumers can visit http://www.flysas.com/en/EuroBonus/Spend-points/shop_spend_points/.
