Motocaddy Launches ‘Smart’ Free Bag Promotion

2.56pm 11th July 2018 - Corporate

Motocaddy, the UK’s leading trolley and cart bag brand, is connecting with its retailers over the popular summer months by launching a free bag promotion on any purchase of the brand’s revolutionary S5 CONNECT ‘Smart Cart’ models.

Between Tuesday 10th July and Friday 31st August, any golfer purchasing a Motocaddy
S5 CONNECT or S5 CONNECT DHC electric trolley, can claim a free Motocaddy cart bag worth at least £159.99. The 100% waterproof Dry-Series bag is on offer along with the premium Pro-Series model, both incorporating standout features such as the brand’s innovative EASILOCK™ bag-to-trolley connection system, removing the need for a lower bag strap.

“It’s important to continue supporting our retail partners as much as possible and offering consumers a free bag is an excellent incentive to help maximise sales,” said Sales Director, Neil Parker. “Having pioneered the bag promotion concept, we know how successful they can be and we look forward to seeing even more new Motocaddy trolleys and bags out on courses across the UK and Ireland,” he added.

Following the purchase of a new Motocaddy S5 CONNECT or S5 CONNECT DHC with Lithium battery, golfers can redeem the free bag – model to be chosen at the discretion of Motocaddy – by registering the warranty and making a claim on the brand’s website. Once the claim has been verified, the free bag will be shipped directly to the customer within 28 days.

Launched last year as the first trolley on the market to combine a GPS system and smart phone app, the S5 CONNECT and DHC version can be synced (via Bluetooth) to the brand’s free GPS app to provide distance data and optional smartphone notifications. The trolley’s digital display can be used in place of a conventional GPS, offering golfers front, middle and back distances to the green (in yards or metres), along with the par of the hole, clock, round timer and shot distance measurements.

The ‘Smart’ models can also receive notifications alerting the golfer of a missed call, text, email or range of app alerts including WhatsApp and Facebook. The phone can remain connected even when securely placed in the pocket of a golf bag or being charged by the trolley’s patented USB charging port.

“The summer months are key sales periods for our stockists with plenty of footfall through golf shops. We’re sure our free bag offer will tempt many golfers to treat themselves to a brand-new ‘Smart Cart’ model that has been so well received since its launch,” added Neil.

The innovative promotion is being backed by a major marketing campaign featuring extensive point of sale material, email campaigns and prominent consumer advertising in both print and digital media, plus featuring across Motocaddy’s social media platforms.

The promotion is available through participating UK and Republic of Ireland stockists by redemption only and is not available at the point of purchase.
