Firestone Financial Corp. a provider of equipment financing, announced the launch of Firestone Partners, a rewards program for its customers in the amusement and vending industries.
“This is our way of showing appreciation to our loyal customers. The program is quite simple, the more you finance, the higher the rebate at the end of the year,” said Larry Yaffe, Firestone’s senior vice president of sales and marketing in a prepared statement.
The program will pay a half a percentage point on all business funded in 2012 for those customers that finance above their annual target. Customers have two ways to redeem their reward; they may opt for cash back paid in January 2013 or receive 2013 membership with the National Automatic Merchandising Association (NAMA) or the Amusement Machine Operators Association (AMOA).
NAMA membership is available for new operator members and those operators that were not members of NAMA in 2011 and 2012. “We look forward to the success of the program and welcoming new NAMA members,” said Dean Gilland, NAMA vice president of sales and service.
Jim Hines, Firestone’s vice president, commented, “With our promotional loans with interest rates as low as zero percent, and our cash back program, operators can put more money in their pocket by using Firestone.”
