"sQuid eMoney launches pre-pay contactless smart card with Pizza Hut Delivery stores in Dundee"
10 September
2009 - Dundee

http://www.squidcard.com/images/sq_phdelivery_cardthumb_001.jpgsQuid eMoney today announces a new Pizza Hut branded pre-pay contactless smartcard for customers at stores in Dundee.

The eMoney smartcard uses contactless payment, the latest innovation in retailing. It combines ‘pay as you go’ to make life easier for customers with a loyalty email voucher scheme giving customers rewards to redeem in-store.

With three stores in Dundee and Dunfermline now accepting sQuid eMoney payments, this is an extension to sQuid’s launch across the City of Dundee, where they already work with Dundee City Council, the National Entitlement Card (NEC), the University of Abertay and local Dundee retailers.

sQuidcard provides contactless eMoney services in retail and campus networks. With an ability to provide an available-to-all prepaid card and to deliver multi-purse technology, sQuid is much more flexible than bank card or other loyalty schemes. It has been specifically designed to replace cash transactions in fast retail environments, and is compatible with transport smartcard applications including ITSO.

Andrew Pollard, the franchisee owner of the three stores says, “I am pleased to be supporting the local community here in Dundee while being among the first to use this innovative and new payment scheme for our customers. sQuid means that we can make our customers life easier at the point of purchase, while rewarding loyal customers with some great deals at the same time."

All sQuid eMoney cards are accepted at the participating Pizza Hut Delivery stores and they are also launching with a limited edition branded card, which can also be used across Dundee. Customers can register their cards online and then view their transactions, top-up their card and receive special money off vouchers by email.

sQuid is a new kind of cash: smart cash. It can be used to pay for those everyday items, such as your morning coffee, a mid morning snack, your lunchtime sandwich or evening pizza treat. It saves time, is more convenient than cash, and helps you keep an eye on where your money is going. sQuid is an independent eMoney network, you can’t get into debt and you don’t even need a bank account to use it, making it ideal for everyone.

'It’s great to be working with Pizza Hut in Dundee, following on from some other successful trials we have undertaken with similar high profile, high street brands.  We are extending the use of sQuid across the wider Dundee community and the way that people pay for everyday items; we’re making life so much easier', says Adam Smith, Managing Director of sQuidcard. ‘By incorporating easy payment on a branded card for Pizza Hut and emailing personal voucher rewards to registered card holders, customers will be able to enjoy hassle free payments whilst benefiting from some great deals’
