There are lots of reward, cashback and offer websites out there, but getting anything out of them can be hard work.
Building a profile takes time and effort, and when you’re all set up you’d be lucky to find a deal that’s right for you before you’ve trawled through loads that aren’t.
Oliver Southgate, founder of Get My Slice, saw an opportunity to harness the activity you already do online and use it to bring you straightforward, targeted benefits.
The Get My Slice app matches you with brands that your online behaviour suggests you’ll be interested in. Personalised offers are tailored to you so it’s more likely you’ll take one up – and when you do, you’ll be rewarded.
It’s no wonder Get My Slice is the fastest-growing rewards app in the UK. It cuts out the middleman and helps you take back control of your personal data, all while providing offers that are useful and appealing.
‘We launched in July 2020 and have been promoting the app – online, advertising on large billboards around London and even sponsoring the Australian Open tennis recently on TV’, says Oliver. ‘This has driven huge growth in our membership, which is really exciting for us. We’re all about helping to make the internet work harder for individuals.’
It’s not just about rewards; the team at Get My Slice wants to give something back to nature by creating balance between business, commerce and the environment.
One of the brand offers from Get My Slice is with People’s Energy, a community interest energy provider on a mission to end fuel poverty and provide greener energy for all. As more people join, the energy becomes cheaper for everyone.
Get My Slice has also partnered with Offset Jewellery, a bespoke jewellery brand that plants 10 trees for every piece of jewellery purchased through the Get My Slice app. The trees are planted in developing rural communities around the world, with the coordinates engraved into your chosen piece.
Get My Slice has also partnered with My Green Pod Hero Pala Eyewear, a purpose-driven brand that funds eyecare projects across Africa. Similarly, the plant pots offered through a partnership with Ocean Plastic Pots are made entirely from rope and fishing nets, waste materials that risk polluting the sea and UK beaches.
Get My Slice also supports My Green Pod by promoting the sustainable and ethical products on our Marketplace. There is currently an offer with organic wine merchants and My Green Pod Hero Vintage Roots; a tree will be planted in the tropics every time a My Green Pod offer is taken up. 1,000 trees have already been donated as part of Get My Slice’s commitment to a more balanced and sustainable future.
