London, United Kingdom, 2006/08/23 - Image Source, the world’s leading independent producer and brand for creative and commercial 'royalty free' stock photography, has announced it has expanded and updated its customer loyalty scheme, WISH.
Previously, WISH points could only be redeemed for gift vouchers from Amazon® and iTunes® (and Apple Store® for members in the USA only) or for discounts on future purchases from Image Source Direct.
Image Source has now added Leisure Vouchers® and Voucher Express® as direct suppliers. Leisure Vouchers® offer gift certificates for a wide variety of restaurants, hotels, attractions and holidays such as Café Rouge, Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Alton Towers and Thomas Cook Holidays. Voucher Express® offer gift certificates for a huge range of high street shops such as Selfridges, John Lewis, HMV and Boots across the UK.
In addition, clients that can’t accept gifts to employees can now put their WISH points to good use by donating their cash value to the registered charity of their choice through Justgiving®.
“We are delighted to offer a much wider range of gift suppliers”, said Phillip Jennings, Image Source Marketing Director. “To our knowledge, the Image Source WISH scheme is the most generous loyalty scheme in the industry and our members now have many more ways to reward themselves. We are also thrilled to be able to offer the opportunity to donate the value of the points to a choice of over 1600 charities.”
The online redemption functionality has also been updated and is now fully automated. Phillip adds, “The new system means WISH members will be able to redeem and receive their certificates, gifts and discounts much more quickly and easily than before.”

Customers who sign-up to the scheme earn one WISH point for each Pound, Dollar or Euro they spend at Image Source Direct, plus 25 Bonus points for their first purchase after signing up.
