In a UK first, Vodafone’s VeryMe programme will let customers gift rewards to friends and family
  • Vodafone is the first UK operator to offer customers the option of gifting rewards through its loyalty programme.
  • VeryMe Rewards is giving customers the ability to gift the perfect night in to a friend or family member, regardless of what network they are on.
  • Recipients can choose from a vast selection of blockbuster titles from CHILI (worth £4.99).

VeryMe Rewards from Vodafone is giving customers the ability to gift the perfect night in to a friend, family member or loved one in a UK network operator first.

From today, VeryMe customers will be able to gift selected offers to a friend or loved one regardless of which network they are on. The first offer is a film rental from CHILI (worth £4.99). The lucky recipient will be able to choose a film from a variety of blockbuster titles that suit all ages and tastes to enjoy in the comfort of their own home.

To gift the offer, customers simply open the My Vodafone app, click on VeryMe Rewards and tap ‘Send Gift’ once the offer has been claimed. Customers will have the option to send the offer via text, email or WhatsApp. Once the recipient has received the offer, all they need to do is follow the link to claim their film rental.

Max Taylor, Consumer Director, Vodafone UK, said: “We know our customers want to be able to give something back to their friends and families. We’re delighted to be the first UK operator to let customers gift their rewards via VeryMe, and the first offer is a film rental on us.

“This is only the beginning – be sure to keep an eye out for even more great giftable rewards from some from big-name brands over the coming months.”

VeryMe Rewards launched in November 2018 and 28 million rewards have been claimed to date. The loyalty programme uses machine learning to tailor and personalise deals to meet individual tastes, with daily rewards including free treats and money off well-known brands.  Over time, the app will learn what customers like so that they don’t miss out on deals from their favourite brands.

VeryMe Rewards can be accessed via the My Vodafone app which can be downloaded from the Apple Store and Google Play Store.


 Notes to editors

Customers will not be able to redeem their reward once it’s been gifted to someone else.

CHILI offer is available to gift or redeem from 00:01 on 6 August to 23 :59 on 19 August.

Full Ts&Cs can be found in the VeryMe Rewards section of the My Vodafone app.

Having made the UK’s first mobile phone call and sent the first text message, Vodafone has a history as a tech pioneer. In 2018 we made the UK’s first live holographic call using 5G, and were first to start carrying live 5G traffic from a site in Salford, Greater Manchester. We now have 5G in more places than anyone else, with multiple locations now live across the UK and the rest of Europe.

Today we serve more than 18 million mobile and fixed line customers in the UK, with 4G network coverage at 99%.  Our customers voted us the UK’s Best Mobile Network at the 2018 Trusted Reviews Awards – for the second year in a row. To help deliver Gigabit UK, our full-fibre broadband roll-out programme now covers 15 UK towns and cities through partnerships with CityFibre and Openreach.

Connectivity is at the heart of what we do as it gives us a huge opportunity for good. We are using our network, products, talents and technology to help society prosper and respond to significant social and environmental issues.  Our free Digital Parenting magazine is helping families and schools across the UK to navigate the online world safely.
