ATLANTA // PRNewswire-FirstCall // -- Specialty retailer Aaron's, Inc. (NYSE: AAN), the nation's leader in sales and lease ownership of residential and office furniture, consumer electronics and home appliances and accessories, and LQ Management LLC, operator of La Quinta Inn and La Quinta Inn & Suites, have teamed up to provide their customers exclusive discounts and offers.
Aaron's customers will enjoy a discount at participating La Quinta hotels by using the discount promo code included in the 27 million advertising flyers distributed monthly by Aaron's. Aaron's employees will receive special offers from La Quinta, as well.
La Quinta customers who currently receive email communications from the hotel company will be extended an offer to enjoy $50 off their first payment on any new lease agreement from any of the Aaron's stores throughout the U.S. and Canada. Aaron's has a wide selection of name brands for customers to choose from, including Dell, HP, LG, Sony, Frigidaire, Mitsubishi, GE, Sharp, Xbox, Maytag, JVC and Philips.
"The demographics of Aaron's customers and La Quinta customers are very similar, so the two companies working together made perfect sense," said Gary Reeves, Director of Partnership Development for Aaron's. "This program also demonstrates Aaron's commitment to continually seek out creative new ways to offer value to its employees and customers across the nation."
Derek Blake, Vice President of Marketing for La Quinta, said, "We became interested in an affinity marketing program with Aaron's after we discovered that many of their employees were choosing La Quinta for their travel accommodations. The initial idea evolved into the ideal team effort - two cohesive brands, sharing the same customer base, can now offer savings in extended areas for millions of customers. It's the perfect example of a win-win situation."
