A new partnership between French retailer Auchan and loyalty app operator Naomi will see shoppers receive money back on their in-store spend.
Using a mobile application, customers can track their refunds swiftly and automatically receive a percentage of the total amount of their shopping at each checkout.
'Recover Purchasing Power'
The move is part of Auchan's attempts to ease the impact of inflation on shopper's baskets.
Customers can build their refunds up to a sum of €10, upon which they can receive a gift card to the store.
This is in addition to the Auchan Waaoh loyalty kitty and regular promotions, the retailer noted.

Auchan And Naomi App
To avail of the programme, customers need to download the Naomi application and create an account and connect a bank account through Budget Insight, a partner approved by the Bank of France.

When it reaches €10, the app generates a reusable physical or digital gift card, which can be redeemed in all partner brands.
