Abstract (en)

[origin: DE10133975C1] The invention relates to a method for providing reductions on products and/or services, wherein an information carrier is made available to a customer after the purchase of a product and/or in connection with the administration of services. Said information carrier contains coded information on the amount of discount offered with respect to the purchase of a product or administration of a service. The information of the information carrier is inputted into a telecommunication device and transmitted to a central management unit by means of said telecommunication device via a telecommunication network. In the management unit, free telecommunication services or other data services corresponding to the value of the discount on the product or the service are automatically credited to the customer and can be used immediately or at a later stage by the customer by means of telecommunication devices with the aid of technical devices provided by the central management unit, whereupon the discount thus provided expires.
