Makita launches battery promotion

To celebrate the launch of its new XGT 40V Max battery platform, Makita UK is offering your trade customers the opportunity to claim a free 40V 2.5Ah battery with selected XGT product purchases via a redemption scheme.

The battery promotion entitles your trade customers to claim a free 40V 2.5Ah lithium-ion battery with purchases of selected products within Makita’s new cordless 40V XGT range. The selected products must include the suffix ‘GD101’, ‘GD102’, or ‘GD103’ and be purchased by your end user customer before the 30 September 2020.

The promotion offers retailers the opportunity to incentivise sales of the new Makita XGT range, whilst providing added value to the end user as a cost-effective way to expand their capabilities with XGT – a genuine solution for high demand, industrial applications.

Once a qualifying XGT ‘GD101’, ‘GD102’, or ‘GD103’ product has been purchased within the promotional period from an authorised Makita dealer, the end user can then claim their gift within 28 days of purchase, via a dedicated microsite and simple process. End users will need to submit their details and proof of purchase and on successful application, they will receive their free gift after 30 days.

Kevin Brannigan, Marketing Manager at Makita UK, said: “We are delighted to release a new redemption scheme that celebrates the launch of our new XGT 40V Max battery system. With XGT, end users experience the same high power associated with mains-powered corded machines, but with the increased flexibility of cordless, making XGT the ideal solution for high demand, industrial applications.

“The redemption scheme provides end users with a cost-effective gateway into the new 40V XGT system, whilst providing our valued retail partners with an opportunity to offer increased value to end users, whilst we take care of all the logistics.”

Makita is running a consumer awareness campaign to promote scheme and is encouraging retailers to promote their participation by sharing, reposting and retweeting Makita’s redemption alerts on Facebook and Twitter, using #MakitaRedeem.
