MotorV8 cardholders can transfer to new BONUS contactless MastercardDavid Burton
Help is at hand for those MotorV8 card holders who did not spend their available credit before the Dec 31 deadline.
All cardholders were notified about the closure of the MotorV8 incentive programme and the fact that the MotoNovo Finance Visa cards would stop working on 31 December 2020.
And in response to these communications, the majority of cardholders did indeed spend all their available credit before the 31 December deadline.
However, there are a number of people who did not, and whose accounts have a credit balance at this time, but now they have no working card to enable that credit to be spent.
Because the MotoNovo Finance prepaid Visa cards were ’non cash vouchers’ to satisfy HMRC requirements, unspent credit cannot simply be converted into a ‘straight cash funds transfer’ without risking a range of tax/National Insurance implications for everyone.
Therefore, in order to help as many people as possible in this situation Performance Bonus has brought forward the launch of our new BONUS trade incentive scheme and can transfer unspent MotoNovo prepaid Visa card credit onto the new (non cash) BONUS prepaid contactless Mastercard – valid for 36months with no monthly management fee.
To achieve this transfer, the BONUS card costs £9 to set up and there’s a 3% funds transfer charge (both deducted from the MotorV8 Visa card closing balance).
Cardholders can manage their BONUS cards on the BONUSme.uk App, where they can monitor their balance, freeze/unfreeze their cards, see their PIN reminder plus keep an eye on their spending and Bonus credits.
Launching shortly into the dealer market, there is even the facility for dealers to use the BONUSme app and card to encourage introductions and reward their customers for introducing friends and family to the dealership.
We are in discussion with a number of motor trade supplying companies to encourage them to offer their own rewards through the new BONUS card (the vision being ‘one card – multiple ways to load it’). BONUS Cardholders will receive full details shortly.
With the lockdowns of 2020-21 inflicting significant economic hardship on whole sectors of the economy – many independent dealers being among them, we believe that the time is perfect for BONUSme and we are determined to emerge into 2021 with a stronger motor trade incentive programme even than MotorV8.
If you would like to transfer funds to the BONUS card ASAP and understand that the £9 card fee and 3% transfer will be deducted from the balance transferred, please simply click on this link to access the secure form to request your credit balance be transferred from your old MotoNovo Visa card onto your new contactless BONUS prepaid Mastercard.
