A new initiative that has been organised by County Meath Chamber Of Commerce, and is heavily supported by local businesses is the Mí Meath gift card, something we at Meath Live strongly back as a way if supporting local enterprise as we emerge from lockdown.

Mí Meath is NOT just a gift card, aimed just at the retail market and it is NOT simply another retail loyalty card offering points per spend – it is MUCH MORE.

Mí Meath is designed to encourage consumers to buy the card for PERSONAL USE, as well as buying it as a gift.

Offering unrivaled choice, it can be used for the purchase of consumer goods and services from ALL business sectors operating within County Meath, both in-store and online.

Gift cards often lie unused, and with a reducing balance and expiry date, offer bad value for the user.

The Mí Meath card has NO reducing balance and can be re-loaded in real time through our website mimeath.ie so offers excellent value to customers.

As the card only needs to be renewed every 2 years, subject to a small renewal fee to cover the cost of p&p, it is essentially currency in your pocket, similar to a debit card.

We also encourage our retail partners to offer an additional discount to consumers each time they use the card at POS in store or at checkout online, so they are rewarded immediately for making a purchase from your business.

The more they spend, the more they save. This is the real incentive for consumers to buy and use the card continuously.

For businesses wanting to register it’s free to do so and full details can be obtained on www.mimeath.ie or from 046 9046060
