The Hi-Tech Investor: A good point
Sunday 25 April 1999
Anyone can sign up for the scheme and accumulate points, either for shopping online, or perhaps just for requesting information or registering on a website. Rather than discounts, Ipoints members can order bonuses such as gift vouchers or, if they have enough points, air tickets. Companies offering Ipoints include Amazon.co.uk and the web-based insurance broker Screentrade. Ipoints may be offered to customers who opt to administer their accounts or investments over the net.
The most visible part of the Prudential's presence on the internet is Egg, the direct bank it created last year. The internet is at the heart of Egg's approach: the bank is providing free internet accounts and it also plans to sell discounted PCs.
The Prudential has also been adding to its own website. Where the website scores is in its very clear descriptions of complicated financial products. The Pru was heavily fined for its role in pensions mis-selling. If the website is anything to go by, the company has learned its lesson.
