Text Message CampaignText messaging companies are offering more and more services these days that are aimed at loyalty programs with consumers. We have seen companies such as Izod advertise in their stores for customers to become a text messaging loyalty member. All you have to do is send a text message to their sign up number.

In return they are offering a $5 text message credit back. Subsequently consumers can use this credit in the store towards any purchase they are making that day. Once you sign up, apparently you will receive text messages once and awhile. They will advertise some special that they feel you may be interested in. You can send a message to stop these future text messages at any time. Wait a reasonable amount of time and you can then rejoin and receive another $5 credit for another purchase. What a great deal!
