Q: Does the Bali Incentive Book have a Gold Card section as well?
A: No. This does not work in Bali. Many Balinese businesses are not ready at point of sale to process rewards cards.
Q: I heard there was a Bali Entertainment Book as well, can you tell me what happened?
A: Sure. We were originally called the Bali Entertainment Book. However, not all of our advertisers are in the “entertainment” industry. In fact, only a very small portion technically entertain. We responded to an overwhelming call to change to a more appropriate name. We changed our name to Bali Incentive Book.
Q: Why are there charities listed in the Bali Incentive Book?
A: As you know, charities put all of their resources (money, time, people) into their respective causes. The Bali Incentive Book has offered up to 200 spaces for businesses that are doing good in the world. Not all are technically “charities.” For example, one business that will be listed in the Yayasan / Charitable Services section gives a free school uniform to a school girl, so that she is allowed to attend school, every time a customer purchases two t-shirts from them. We give away these advertising spaces free so that you get to know about the charities; and, so that you have the opportunity to support them or help them out in some way.
