Puntos mean prizes - become a member of Club Peroni! 

Club Peroni promotion

Peroni Nastro Azzurro, the UK’s No 1 Italian premium beer has extended its loyalty scheme – Club Peroni – to encompass all independent on-trade outlets that sell its 330ml bottles.

Initially launched to reward Italian restaurants, Club Peroni has now been extended so that the growing base in the on trade can reap the rewards of stocking Peroni Nastro Azzurro. 

For each on trade case of Peroni Nastro Azzurro, a point or in this instance a punto (“Italian for point”), is printed on the case and the puntos can be simply torn off and collected by Peroni stockists.  Outlets then send their puntos to a Club Peroni freepost address to be ‘banked’ and once enough puntos are collected; outlets can then redeem their puntos for great rewards online or through a catalogue detailing all the items available.   

The puntos can be used to obtain both point of sale materials such as the coveted Peroni branded glassware or they can be used to treat yourself or your outlet to something special such as a Gaggia Classic Espresso machine! 

An example of the rewards available include:-
• Bar Blade                                                        10 puntos
• Men/Ladies T-shirt                                        16 puntos
• Set of 6 half pint glasses                             28 puntos
• Sony Digital Camera                                     208 puntos
• Sony Playstation                                             652 puntos
• Gaggia Classic Espresso Machine           659 puntos

To join the free Peroni loyalty scheme, customers of Peroni Nastro Azzurro can call 0800 731 1728 or visit www.clubperoni.com where they can register as a member to receive a kit containing a catalogue detailing the gifts that they can redeem, a handy collector box to store their puntos and a Peroni key fob.

Natalie Bell, Customer Marketing Manager for Miller Brands said; “At Miller Brands we’re always looking for ways to bring value back into the beer category and to our customers.  Club Peroni is a way to say thank you to loyal Peroni stockists for their commitment to us in building such a great brand.”
