Brent Hoberman

, Group Chief Executive, said: “We are delighted to be linking up with Egg to develop with them a
new refreshing product for their customers who will be able to
receive quality offers easily accessible online. This deal is
strategically important because it demonstrates lastminute.com`s
ability to leverage its cutting edge technology, its exclusive
product depth and its creativity”.


Jerry Toher, UK Managing Director Egg said: We know that Egg customers value holidays and entertainment and our
recent research reveals that consumers rarely understand points based
loyalty schemes, in fact more than two-thirds of loyalty scheme
participants never redeem any rewards. Partnering with Lastminute.com
will therefore allow us to offer a range of compelling and relevant
offers to customers online each and every month. What is more, 5%
cash back is a great reward for Egg Card customers booking with
lastminute.com.”
