For small and medium-sized enterprises: Miles & More launches a partnership with qiibee and expands its offers for members

qiibee, the leading blockchain-based B2B marketplace for customer loyalty, facilitates a seamless connection for SMEs to join the Miles & More loyalty programme. The integration opens up broader avenues for members to earn and redeem miles.

FRANKFURT AM MAIN, Germany, Dec. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Miles & More, loyalty programme of the Lufthansa Group, is advancing its strategy to broaden the range of its partner network. Partnering with qiibee, the leading blockchain-based B2B marketplace for customer loyalty, SMEs can now easily join the programme. For Miles & More members, this expansion grants access to a wider and more diverse range of partners, including those at a regional level, where they can earn and redeem miles throughout the entire travel chain and in everyday life with partners such as luxury fashion platform Fashionette.de, VIP Hospitality marketplace Daimani Group, and Swiss-based digital asset wallet, Swiss Fortress.

Effortless integration thanks to blockchain technology

qiibee will create customized and appealing marketing packages for SMEs within the Miles & More programme. Through their platform, prospective enterprises can effortlessly initiate a collaboration. As qiibee’s marketplace is built on the qiibee rewards chain, loyalty rewards generated through these partnerships benefit from decentralized validation and storage. Compared to traditional loyalty-reward programs, this technological integration removes the reconciliation costs between partners, generating enhanced connection between enterprise and customer. Further to the enhanced exchangeability offered by a singular decentralized loyalty ecosystem, qiibee will oversee the contractual, commercial, technical and promotional management of these partnerships.

More partners that will connect seamlessly with Miles & More through qiibee’s marketplace are speciality Tanzanian coffee house Edelweiss Coffee,  Zürich’s largest furniture store and online retailer Schubiger Möbel, crowd-investing platform Conda.ch, and successful family-run eyewear sellers Brillen.de. In the future, qiibee will focus on expanding their ecosystem by onboarding more partners and launching a Shopify plug-in for SMEs to connect with Miles & More without requiring an integration, enhancing accessibility to qiibee’s offerings.

Johann-Philipp Bruns, Managing Director of Miles & More GmbH and responsible for Retail & Sales said, “The partnership is a win-win situation for everyone. We are expanding our partner network with exciting and diverse enterprises. These in turn gain access to our members and thus to a further, demanding target group in the premium segment, which they will reward for their loyalty in future. By incorporating local partners, the programme becomes even more relevant in everyday life and offers our members even more opportunities to earn and redeem award miles.

Gabriele Giancola, co-founder and CEO at qiibee said “The qiibee blockchain is 100% focused on the needs of the loyalty market, featuring instantaneous, low-cost transactions, and full control over data privacy. We are proud to present this unique offering to our initial partners and excited to scale future collaborations between numerous new partners and Miles & More. This will position our technology further as the industry standard for Web3 loyalty partnerships.”

Anja Rodionova, Head of Marketing at fashionette, said: “As part of the Miles & More network of partners, we’re delighted to now reach Lufthansa passengers and potential customers. Fashionette, just like Lufthansa, attaches a great value to high quality and excellent customer experience. Hence we are confident, that this cooperation is a perfect match.  Besides that, qiibee makes the integration of Miles & More incredibly convenient for us, which made it a simple decision for us to participate in the collaboration.”
