COLLECTING PINS AND TRIPS:
Collect PINS and trips to reach a higher level, get a bigger discount and purchase Lux Express E-vouchers. It is possible to collect PINS on all Lux Express routes, the calculations are based on the prices of the tickets. Every 1 euro spent = 2 PINS, in Poland 4,5 złoty = 2 PINS. Collecting PINS in different partners may vary.
PINS can be collected on all Lux Express departures in two different ways:
1. Tickets with campaign discounts
When buying a ticket with the campaign discount, your PINS will be calculated from the campaign price. For example: If you buy a ticket that costs 25 euros with a 50% campaign discount, the campaign price for it would be 12,5 euros. It means that you will receive 2 x 12,5 = 25 PINS.
2. Tickets with the PINS discount
When you buy a ticket with your PINS card, PINS will be calculated according to the full price of the ticket. For example: when buying a ticket that costs 20 euros, as a PINS VIP level customer, you will receive a discount of 25%. So the ticket for you costs 15 EUR, but PINS will be calculated from the full price (20 euros). You will therefore receive 2 x 20 = 40 PINS.
If you notice that some of your trips and PINS are missing, you should submit the request here.
Missing PINS can be claimed online after your trip has taken place. They will be accrued to your account within 7 days.
PINS can be claimed retroactively within 90 days after your completed trip. PINS can be retroactively credited only to the accounts of those clients who had already joined the Lux Express PINS loyalty program on the date of the transaction.
