Do I need an internet connection to redeem The Gulf Bank Entertainer offers?.
- To redeem offers, you will need either a Wi-Fi or Internet connection so that your account can be updated and your redemptions removed from the available offers in real time. This means that if you are sharing the mobile product with a friend or relative, you will be able to see the offers available in real time. The merchant will also receive an e-mail once a redemption is made, enabling them to honor the offer and apply your discount as it verifies the redemption.
How do I redeem an offer?.
- When you request your bill, you must notify the person attending to you that you want to redeem an offer via The Gulf Bank Entertainer using your smartphone. Then, while the teller is watching, tap on “Redeem” the offer. Make sure that the outlet is correct because some merchants have offers that can be redeemed at more than one outlet. The app will prompt you to enter your 4-digit PIN. When you have done this successfully, the app will ask for the merchant’s PIN. Simply ask the teller to enter their merchant PIN on your smartphone, and when they have done this successfully you will get a confirmation notice on your screen. The teller will most likely want to make a note of the reference number that appears on your screen so you should allow them to do this. If you accidentally moved past this then you can still see the redemption confirmation reference by going to ‘Savings’ and then ‘Redemption History’. The teller will then prepare your bill with the discount applied. The merchant will receive a receipt of the redemption by email and this will contain the same reference number for security purposes.
If I go to a participating outlet, click on “Redeem an Offer” on the Entertainer app and find that the merchant does not accept the offer for some reason, can I cancel the redemption?.
- Yes, you can cancel the redemption at any point until the teller successfully enters the merchant PIN. However, please note that a completed redemption may not be reversed. We are unable to reinstate mobile offers within The Gulf Bank Entertainer.
I have lost my redemption PIN. What do I do?.
- You can reset your PIN within the account section of the app, which, depending on your smartphone is either in the Main Menu, or within the settings screen.
Can I see how much I have saved?.
- Yes, when you successfully redeem an offer you will see an estimate of how much you have just saved. If you go to the “Savings” tab you will see the total amount of estimated savings you have made.
How do I find out how many offers I have left for a particular outlet?.
- Go to the merchant details screen and you will see all the offers available for that merchant. You will see how many are available, how many are locked and how many have already been redeemed.
Do I have access to the rules of use?.
- Yes, validity and rules of use are contained within the “Offers” screen as well as the “Account” section.
How do I redeem more than one offer at the same time – e.g. when I am with a group of friends and I have offers available to use?.
- You can currently only redeem one offer at a time. So if you want to redeem 4 offers at the same time, then you need to go through the process 4 times with the teller and he/she will then produce your bill with the total discount applied.
How does The Gulf Bank Entertainer work when using offers from the Body section or products*– e.g. when I go to a spa alone and want to use my offer for the next visit?.
The spa will accept your redemption the normal way and then provide you with a certificate, which you need to present the next time you visit the outlet. The certificate will contain the exact details of the complimentary treatment or service. You may use the certificate for:
• Another complimentary treatment for yourself during your current visit
• A complimentary treatment for a family member or friend, during your current visit
