We are the sum total of our experiences.

When it comes to rewarding your team, should you prioritize things or experiences?

Our research shows that almost half of employees prefer an experiential reward, and this seems to reflect the larger population, since 74% of Americans now prioritize experiences over products or things. Millennials, in particular, are leading the charge. ✈️

We all want to live life to the fullest, after all.

Like me, for example! This summer, I spent time in Paris fulfilling a childhood dream to immerse myself in a new culture and live like a local for a few weeks. I planned the entire trip myself; discovering trendy places to eat, live, explore, and shop. I treasure my memories from that trip, and it’s encouraged me to look out for new travel experiences.

The great thing about Bonusly is how we’re able to redeem our points for things that enable those experiences, like airfare, event admissions, hotel rooms, and more. It makes the work we do and the recognition we receive even more meaningful, knowing that our dedication pays off in the form of a great time. 🎉

Through our partners, we’re able to offer unique experiences for your employees to choose from. So what exactly do we have to offer? Here’s a small sample of our hundreds of reward options.

1. Travel

Land, sea, or sky? Bonusly’s catalog has 'em all. 🙌✈️🛳🚕

Through our rewards partners, we are happy to offer travel rewards for customers to take some time away from the office. Bonusly customers can purchase airfare, book a cruise, or rest easy knowing they can use their points for an Uber ride back to their hotel.

Take your points and turn them right into a gift card for your next getaway!
