Quoted from the Toronto Star
"The Carrot Rewards app — which already has a quarter of a million Ontarians signed up — provides information and gives users a chance to earn points by answering short surveys and builds up user profiles, and "the beauty about the app is once it knows you well, it can target you with much more specific (information)," he also said.
The points plans available include Aeroplan, Petro Points, Scene (Cineplex) and More Rewards.
None of the personal information gathered is shared, Souvaliotis said, and aggregate data will not be sold. There's no advertising on the app.
Carrot Rewards purchases points from the plans, which it then sells to governments.
A free app that's all carrot, no stick — offering users loyalty points for completing quizzes and surveys about healthy living — has gotten a $1.5 million boost from the Ontario government.
The Toronto-based company behind it said "we are a nation so addicted to our phones and also incredibly addicted to our loyalty points ... so why not create something much more targeted, much more efficient" and more fun than a government advertising campaign, said Andreas Souvaliotis, the CEO of Carrot Insights, in a telephone interview.
Governments typically blast out ads on television or online, "which is a bit of a blunt instrument ... there's no real ability to target populations," he added.
The app is already in use in Ontario, British Columbia and Newfoundland/Labrador, and the federal government also jumped on board, pledging $5 million to cover the cost of the initial sign-up points and the bonus rewarded for referring friends."
