And if each purchase brought in money? It is this idea which has inspired the operation Thau Foliz. Throughout the weekend, purchases made at the merchants in the city centre of the fourteen villages of the town of Sète (Herault) will be subject to an automatic reimbursement to the bank account of the customers.

This rebate is equivalent to 20 % of the amount of the note in the limit of 50 euros, 10 euros maximum refund per ticket. “The offer is cumulative from one store to the other,”says the chamber of commerce of the Hérault, the origin of the initiative. “It is not a reduction in scope by the merchant. This is the download of the app Keetiz (developed by a local company of the same name, editor’s NOTE)to which the client binds his / her bank account, which generates the refund as soon as the purchase is made by credit card”specifies the CCI, which funds Thau Foliz with the city Sète Agglopôle Mediterranean.
