Last week I was chatting to the girls at Rosewood Truro florist, who had just met Simon and Ryan from Something Back. They were very interested in what they were told, so I decided to investigate their venture and understand how it works.
Something Back is a new and innovative reward scheme founded by Simon Chegwidden and Ryan Poon and based in Truro.
If you buy goods or services from a local independent company listed on SomethingBack.co.uk, you will receive reward money to use in another local, independent businesses. For example if you take out a mortgage and receive £150 reward money which you spend in a local salon or nail bar. You could purchase a new kitchen, receive £100 and spend it in a top end local restaurant. Or even purchase a holiday from a chosen travel agent, receive £50 reward and treat the kids to a surf lesson at a local surf school.
At the moment Ryan and Simon have been assembling local businesses where you, the customer, can spend your reward money. Already several Truro businesses are a part of Something Back, such as Archie Browns, B Juicy, Grounded, 108 Coffee House, Champagne & Nail Bar, The Cornish Food Box, and many more in Truro, Newquay and Falmouth. Reward businesses are selected on their reputation, products and customer reviews.
Something Back plans to officially launch this summer, once it has sufficient goods and services to offer customers.
If you are a business and would like to attract new customers by offering reward money to or would like to be considered as a local business where customers can spend their reward money then please get hold of Ryan on 07756532608 or Simon on 07747600828.
