We give you a dedicated manager for the life of your programme, supported by our team of behaviour change experts.

What are BetterPoints and BetterTickets?

BetterPoints are reward points with real cash value. They can be exchanged for vouchers or donated to charity, directly through the app.

BetterTickets are like lottery tickets. They are automatic tickets for prize draws that you schedule. The more BetterTickets someone has, the greater chance they have of winning.
