I don’t think a blog can adequately convey how much of a blast we had at West Fest. Many thanks to the West Town Chamber of Commerce for putting on a great event, and to the many friends and neighbors who stopped by the Ox&Pen booth to spin the Wheel of Loyalty. There weren’t any slow moments during the weekend. Some people came over hoping to hear more about a universal loyalty program; some wanted to know what all the commotion was; and some stopped by solely because they like anything and everything purple.
The Ox&Pen booth was conveniently positioned near Roots Pizza and Bleeding Heart Bakery and Café; the fact that we were giving away gift cards for the two hot spots and buying shots at Roots for Ox&Pen members may have been part of the reason for the ever-present and excited crowd huddled around our booth.
We gave away hundreds of prizes, including gift cards, sunglasses, t-shirts, water bottles and tens of thousands of universal loyalty points. We made new friends and networked with local merchants interested in the platform. We ate delicious food from Frontier, our booth neighbor, and cooled off with a few ice-cold beers. Check out a few photos from the weekend on our Facebook page (you can like us too while you’re there!).
It was an awesome weekend and we can’t wait until our next festival appearance—Wicker Park Fest on July 28 & 29! See you there!
P.S. Those of you who took home loyalty points, keep in mind you can redeem them anywhere in the network! They’re yours to use whenever and wherever you’d like! For a list of rewards you can get with your loyalty points, sign in to your Ox&Pen account and click this link.
