There are two types of promotional programs you can enroll in with Skupos Engage, Loyalty Fund Programs (LFP) and Brand Promotions.
What is the difference between Loyalty Fund Programs and Brand Promotions?
Loyalty Fund Programs (LFP) are put together by Altria.
The guidelines, requirements, and reimbursements come directly from Altria.
Brand Promotions are put together by the brands participating.
The difference is that Skupos powers their reimbursements. To receive these reimbursements you need to set up and verify your bank account in your Skupos dashboard.
💡 Tip: Enrolling in both of these programs is done through your Skupos dashboard in the Promotions section.
Enrolling in Promotions
Getting to the Enrollment Page
Once you have purchased Engage you can enroll your stores through your Skupos Dashboard.
On your dashboard home page, from the top menu, select "Promotions" then "Manage".
Enrolling in Altria Loyalty Fund Programs (LFP)
Step 1: To get started, select the promotion you would like to enroll in.
Step 2: Click “Add Unsubmitted Stores” in the right-hand corner.
Step 3: On the next screen, add a store to the program by clicking the “Add” checkbox in the Eligible Stores section.
You will also be shown any stores that are ineligible for this specific program.
Step 4: Select an offer from the drop-down.
This is the specific discount that you agreed upon with your Altria representative prior to enrollment.
Step 5: Enter the start date given to you by your tobacco representative.
This ensures that you will be reimbursed accurately. It is very important that the date entered here is the agreed-upon date provided by your tobacco rep.
Step 6: To finalize enrollment, accept all terms and conditions related to the program and click “Finish."
Editing Altria Enrollments
If you have made a mistake in your enrollment by selecting the wrong start date of LFP offer, you can make the changes inside of your dashboard.
Follow the instructions listed here on how to make these changes.
Brand Funded Promotions
Step 1: Select the promotion you want to enroll in
Step 2: Click “Add Unsubmitted Stores” in the right corner to add the eligible stores.
Step 3: Accept the Terms and Conditions and click “Continue.”
💡 Tip: When you opt into a brand-funded program (non-Altria) you will have automatically opted into future non-Altria programs. If you do not want to continue with the program, you can opt out before the program begins. If the program has already begun, you will need to contact Skupos Support to remove your store.
