LoyaltyPoint, Inc. operates as a holding company for merchant, school, and nonprofit loyalty marketing programs. The company markets loyalty programs that generate contributions to schools and nonprofits based upon supporter purchases through various online, store, catalog and stored-value (gift) card merchant participants.
