FiveStars Overview

What is FiveStars?

Need a better way to reach your customers? Fivestars is a custom loyalty automation platform that brings customers back 2x more often with text, email, and mobile app marketing tools. We provide you with a free Customer Touchscreen to sign up customers easily. With AutoPilot and Unlimited Promotions, stay top of mind by automatically reaching out to your customers with the right offer at the right time. We also provide detailed reporting on your customers' visit and spend behaviors.
Once customers have signed up to your loyalty program, they are sent an automatic text requesting their emails and birthdays. From here, AutoPilot can launch five sets of automated marketing campaigns with messaging, offers, and timing associated with event triggers. Offers and promotions are sent to your customers via text or email and customers can claim their offers directly from these texts and emails. When a promotion or offer is claimed it is directly pushed to your point of sale system, meaning that the customer can go to the store, scan their card and redeem their promotion.

Not just for your normal businesses.

As I mentioned before, Fivestars has enabled me to engage with my clients and their parents without having to make them spend a lot of money for other tutors and learning academies. They are able to enjoy the coupons and rewards while having the feeling that they can trust my abilities in teaching and tutoring. Fivestars has been easy to use and very important to my business.

Great Rewards Program that Is Used for Local Businesses

Overall, Fivestars is a great resource and I would encourage everyone to download it because it is nothing like saving. It doesn't take much time to access and is very easy to use.

Fivestars Review

My overall experience is pleasant, I think Five stars is great because it helps the business owners to gain more attraction/ traffic and the customers point of view is receiving discounts/ bonuses.

They are able to enjoy the coupons and rewards while having the feeling that they can trust my abilities in teaching and tutoring. Fivestars has been easy to use and very important to my business.

Pros

I like being able to implement rewards for students that I work with to encourage them to keep on attending tutoring sessions while saving a significant amount of money compared to other starting prices for other private tutors. It is also an incentive for parents or students to push their kids to keep on developing their skills while supporting my own tutoring business.

Cons

There is nothing wrong with this software. I have enjoyed every feature and I am excited for new updates and ways to engage with my clients.

Overall, Fivestars is a great resource and I would encourage everyone to download it because it is nothing like saving. It doesn't take much time to access and is very easy to use.

Pros

I absolutely love saving money. It doesn't matter how much, but I love saving money. Fivestars helps me do just that. Different businesses use Fivestars to host their rewards program, and you can easily sign up and save big. Two stores that I frequent that use Fivestars is Plato's Closet and Once Upon a Child. Using just your phone number you are able to sign in and keep track of points, access coupons, and view sales or promotions that are occurring in store. I love saving and this app helps me to do just that.

Cons

I have thoroughly enjoyed Fivestars. I have no complaints, but I do wish more businesses would use it. However, overall, it has been great to use.

Pros

It is super easy to use, anyone can figure out how to use it from the front or back end

Cons

The representative who signed us up told us it was a year contract. At the end of that year we could cancel, he promised there would be no new charges after the prepaid year. He no longer works for them. Shortly before payroll was due Fivestars pulled $2400 from our account. We had no warning. I called them, they set up a phone appointment. They never showed for two of those phone appointments. I finally spoke with Silvana who told me they would refund the $2400 if and only if I signed a new contract promising to pay them monthly for the next year We did not want to continue the service, but if i didn't sign that, they would not give me the $2400 back. Even after I signed it, it took them over a week to give the money back. It has been 10 months and we received an email stating that we needed to let the know if we don't want to renew next year. We never received that email the first year, but all the same I clicked on the link to let them know there was no way we were renewing. Guess what? They set up a phone interview, you can't cancel on their website. I got the call from them today and I was able to terminate the contract for two months from now, when the 12 month contract i signed under duress expires. But then, she told me we have to mail back the two tablets. I was quite sure we paid for those becuase that's what their rep who signed us up told me. So now we were told we paid for those up front, but we have to send them back, we even have to pay for t

Pros

Pros: extremely easy to use and very user friendly. I like that you can customize your account by adding a photo of yourself where you keep track of your points. I really like the point system, too. When your getting close or at a reward, it emails you to let you know. All you do is type in your phone number and bam your points are linked to your account and whatever store your using this at can see your points, photo, and add points the second you sign in with your phone number.

Cons

The least I liked about it is depending on the type of store using it, sometimes it can take awhile to rack up the points.

Pros

One of the things I love about fivestars is, it is really easy to register. All you have to do is download the application and add you name and phone number. I've gotten many discounts and bonuses from the companies i consume/ purchase from.

Cons

Sometimes its a bit difficult to navigate through the app, simply choosing and finding places where to purchase from.
