UseMyBenefits.com aspires to become “The Google of loyalty program benefits.” We don’t know why you can’t walk into a store or shop online or walk into a restaurant and have one place to go on your computer or smart phone to immediately find out whether you have a discount, cashback, free item, service or other benefit available to you at that time and place, because of the credit cards you have and the organizations you belong to, such as auto clubs, professional organizations, alumni associations, etc.
Americans hold 3.8 billion loyalty program memberships. But, 81% say they don’t know what their benefits are or how or when to use them. Our goal is to fix that and make it easy for consumers to find and use their benefits, when and where they need them.
The groundwork for UseMyBenefits was laid more than 15 years ago when founder, Robin Baker, decided there had to be a better solution than his desk drawer and pockets to sorting through the mounds of perks and discounts he was offered through multiple travel reward programs. That’s when he first came up with the idea of a loyalty program benefits aggregator. Baker formed a team of experts in patents, finance, technology, business development, internet application development, digital marketing, and web design to formalize his vision.
Today, UseMyBenefits houses information in one central location to help you extract the hidden value out of your reward programs, groups and associations and is successfully functioning as a loyalty program benefits aggregator. The site pairs user inquiries and location-based services with loyalty program benefits to help consumers save money and access the best deals with ease.
UseMyBenefits uses the latest search technology to allow members to search and sort by benefit type, location or vendor based on what they want to buy,when and where they want to buy it. And in the future, the UseMyBenefits community will get extra value from the site by learning the ins and outs of deals from members who rate and share their experiences.
The UseMyBenefits.com business method is protected by U.S. patents 5,864,822 and 6,266,648 with additional patents pending.
The company is based in West Palm Beach, Fla.
