The Story Lab, Carat & Unlock Instant Rewards For Beachgoers With Mastercard

Dentsu Aegis Network agencies The Story Lab and Carat have partnered with to unlock instant rewards for beachgoers in a series of pop-up activations for Mastercard Debit Rewards.

Designed to spread the word and drive awareness of Mastercard’s Australian-first debit rewards program amongst its Millennial audience, the distinctive, personalised beachside activations have injected a bit of fun into the punters’ everyday.

Against the striking backdrops of Sydney’s Cronulla Beach and Melbourne’s St Kilda Beach, and incorporating the larger-than-life vision of artist George Rose, beachgoers were given the opportunity to physically unlock a wealth of instant rewards from one of four vintage school lockers.

From beach games and sunnies, to Event Cinema tickets, Crust Pizza vouchers and Xbox gaming codes, each reward was guaranteed to make the recipient’s day just a little bit better, while directing them to access even more rewards and offers through the Mastercard Debit Rewards program online.

Namita Sopal, group business director at The Story Lab, said: “Mastercard’s new and innovative debit rewards program is designed with the Millennial audience in mind; for which experiences of being rewarded can seem few and far between.
