When retail investors discover TiiCKER, some have questions about how stock perks work. So the editorial team periodically digs into our mailbag to answer some common questions about TiiCKER. We want you to get the most out of the platform that rewards shareholders for simply owning stock in their favorite companies.
Question: “I’m new to TiiCKER and when I went to sign up for an account, I found I qualified for a few items of swag, which is cool, but I’m looking for some more valuable perks. What are some of the other types of shareholder rewards found on the platform?” – Sylvia M., Tulsa.
Answer: That’s a great question Sylvia and I’m happy to go through the various types of rewards available on TiiCKER simply for owning shares of your favorite stocks. You touched on swag, which is indeed one of the perks found on the platform. But it is far from the only kind of reward you might be eligible to receive.
But let’s talk about swag a bit more before I move on to answering your question. Some of the swag found on TiiCKER is pretty sweet and certainly nothing to scoff at, especially since you don’t have to do anything except own some shares of the company’s stock to be eligible.
You can pick out great merchandise from partners like Recruiter.com (Tii:RCRT) and retail investors with just one share of Lionsgate (Tii:LGF.A) can get 20% off swag from the official Lionsgate store. Not a bad deal at all since you probably hold shares of these companies in your portfolio already.
Yet there are many different types of perks available from TiiCKER. Swag is just one of them. Some of the most popular types of rewards found on TiiCKER are our gift cards. Many companies want to reward shareholders with a gift card and individual investors love them.
TiiCKER funds a couple of our own gift card rewards to get retail shareholders like you excited about redeeming perks, which is where many individual investors begin to engage on TiiCKER. For connecting a brokerage with at least $100 in holdings, retail investors can choose either an $11 Amazon or Visa gift card.
These gift cards get even more valuable from our brand partners like Real Good Foods (Tii:RGF), which offers its investors with at least 3,750 shares (held for at least a week) a $500 Visa gift card.
Another popular reward class comes in the form of a discount from the company. There are dozens of examples on TiiCKER and can be quite valuable. For example, Willamette Valley Vineyards (Tii:WVVI) offers 25% off wine to shareholders with 100 shares in the company. Wolverine Worldwide (Tii:WWW) offers 30% off to shareholders with a single share to purchase from one of its shoe brands like Bates, CAT, Chacos, Harley Davidson, Hushpuppies, Keds, Merrell, Onlineshoes.com, Saucony, Sperry and Wolverine.
Some companies on the platform reward shareholders with their own products. A good example of this is Aterian (Tii:ATER), a leading technology-enabled consumer products platform that builds, acquires, and partners with best-in-class e-commerce brands, which uses TiiCKER to introduce its shareholders to its brands like Vremi by offering 50% a few products for owning just one share.
A growing number of companies on TiiCKER are offering exclusive and/or experiential perks to reward their shareholders. One perk that just launched is this category is a trip to the “John Wick: Chapter 4” Premiere. Retail shareholders with a single share of Lionsgate can claim an entry for a chance to win a trip to the Los Angeles Premiere of John Wick: Chapter 4, which includes airfare, hotel and a ticket to the red carpet event. In fact, Lionsgate is a TiiCKER innovator when it comes to its rewards. The entertainment company also offers stockholders with 100 shares that they hold for at least four weeks a commemorative stock certificate featuring a few of its most popular films such as Dirty Dancing, Twilight and Reservoir Dogs.
We love working with innovative brands like these to bring retail shareholders unique, valuable and fun perks simply for owning shares in their favorite companies.
So you are correct Sylvia, TiiCKER does reward shareholders with swag, but that is only the beginning. We hope that you poke around TiiCKER and discover some new companies and brands that believe in rewarding individual investors like you. You will find the valuable rewards go far beyond the sweet swag you’ve already discovered.
