Transcript: Purple Points - Students rely on loans Why Manchester? - We estimate that currently a student can spend up to £700 in these local shops on various items. This will show a £42 saving by the end of term Any Questions? e.g. New Zealand wines, Gaffs, Pizza Champion - Beats competition due to cheaper primary price and better savings - with any new business proposal there will be issues 'For When The Student Loan Doesn't Stretch' - a reward card that can be used in local shops around student areas. - Spending money in these shops, students can gather points, which can be redeemed once enough points are gathered - we hope that the card will provide more custom in the long run for these shops and they will see an increase in profit margins A student reward card - Sold during freshers fair - £7.99 £3 cheaper than National Union of Students (NUS) Purple Points! - Students given £1,200 each semester - After rent, weekly shops and acquiring academic text books there is little money to live off - These loans tend to become sparse by the end of each semester. - Points can be gathered from spending in these local shops Student Problems - If there was an incentive that could be used to draw in more custom to local businesses then this issue could be resolved and the local economy will benefit. - Reward cards in place do not show enough return to interest students - Nectar, NUS - High number of local nights out - students can use card when purchasing tickets on sites such as 'skiddle.com' - Smaller businesses lose a lot of potential custom from larger franchises such as Sainsbury's and Tesco - Will it be worth it for the local businesses? - Beneficial to university Card can be used to buy printer credits and accumulate points. Implementing the card Issues - We will offer the businesses registered with the card free advertising space on the website - Show offers and deals to attract customers - With the intent of charging for advertisement after one academic year and the card proving profitable for these businesses. - High number of independent businesses in highly concentrated student areas - Card only available for local, selected business. - This will increase these businesses custom and make it beneficial for them, enough for them to allow rewards to their customers, Local Issues - Budgeting can prove difficult The University of Manchester Reward Card - £1 = 6 points, 1 point = 1p
