The LoveIOM Incentives are back!

All LoveIOM Gift Cards purchased between now and Christmas benefit from 25% extra value added to them for free up to a maximum of £10. So, if you were to buy a £40 LoveIOM Gift Card, you’d receive a £50 to spend.

However, if a business was to use them for corporate gifting, there are more options.
• A business would be able to purchase physical LoveIOM Gift Cards with their corporate branding on them, to give out to their staff this Christmas (or indeed anytime)
• If they were to take advantage of the incentive, they’d also be able to purchase gift cards worth £20, for example, with a 25% discount, saving them the 25% on their gifting spend.
• Or they can choose to give their employees the extra value.

Corporates can look into gifting here and you can get yourself or your loved ones a gift card here
