The premier loyalty programme “Lafarge-BonusLink Dealers’ Rewards” is a first of its kind to be offered to the hardware store dealers where their Lafarge bagged cement purchases can now be translated to BonusLink Points.

 

“We have many hardware store dealers who have been loyal to our Lafarge brand over the years and we have been looking for ways on how to provide extra benefits to them. BonusLink is Malaysia’s first and most successful consumer rewards programme and has over 12 years of excellent track record behind their name. We believe that this partnership will provide more value to our loyal dealers by giving them BonusLink Points on their cement purchases.” said President & Chief Executive Officer of LMCB, Bi Yong Chungunco.

 

Victor Goon, General Manager of BonusKad Loyalty Sdn Bhd added “We are confident that Lafarge dealers will appreciate the additional value they will get with BonusLink Points.
