Home Chef leverages Points’ Loyalty Commerce Platform

United MileagePlus Members Will be First to Earn Miles by Signing Up to Cook with Home Chef

Points, the global leader in powering loyalty commerce, today announced a multi-year partnership with Home Chef, one of the largest meal kit delivery companies in the U.S. United Airlines’ MileagePlus members will now earn frequent flyer miles when they sign up and make their first Home Chef purchase.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Points and United as our launch program,” said Rich DeNardis, Chief Revenue Officer, Home Chef. “The ability to seamlessly introduce our leading meal delivery service to millions of loyalty program members provides us with a huge customer acquisition opportunity.”

When members sign up for Home Chef’s weekly deliveries of fresh, perfectly-portioned ingredients, they combine incredible home cooking with earning more of their chosen loyalty program points or miles, starting with United Airlines’ MileagePlus. The transaction is seamlessly powered by Points’ industry standard Loyalty Commerce Platform.

“Linking leading brands like the highest rated meal kit company, Home Chef, to the loyalty ecosystem is the core focus of our Platform Partnerships strategy,” said Points’ President, Christopher Barnard. “First, we’re excited that Home Chef now offers a proven and compelling incentive that helps its customers get more out of their service. Second, we’re satisfied that offering loyalty members increased access through multiple channels allows them to get more out of their programs and is an engaging and profitable strategy for our leading loyalty program partners like United Airlines. We look forward to helping Home Chef continue to expand this exciting initiative by adding new programs in the coming months.”
