NTT Com today launched the PointTalk Store webpage (http://affiliate.ntt.com/ocn) to help "OCN" Internet-access service subscribers earn their loyalty points more easily.
PointTalk Store provides information about affiliated retailers in Japan and the growing list of products and services that OCN subscribers can acquire with their accumulated loyalty points. Participating companies are expected to expand from 30 to approximately 100 by the end of March.
Under the PointTalk program, OCN subscribers receive bonus loyalty points for purchasing goods or services from affiliated retailers. PointTalk is separate from the loyalty programs of these retailers. Hence, an added advantage is that some purchases earn points for both programs "double-dipping" simultaneously.
Users simply enter OCN email address at the OCN PontTalk Store to reach the banner of online retailers for claiming points after making purchases. Participation in PointTalk is free of charge.
Users can check their current point balances online at http://506506.ntt.com/pointalk
Points also can be converted to other loyalty programs, including the mileage programs of Japan Airlines Corporation and All Nippon Airways Co., Ltd., loyalty points of NTT DoCoMo Inc. and Rakuten Inc. online shopping, as well as NTT Com bills for OCN and fixed-line services.
