Scan Data Promotions

If you are participating in Altria and RJ Reynolds Scan Data incentive programs, you can set up promotions in accordance with types qualified for Scan Data reporting.

Scan Data offers 4 promotion types:

  • Outlet Multi Pack
  • Account Funded
  • Manufacturer Multi Pack
  • Manufacturer Buy-Downs

When you select one of Scan Data promotion types, the promotion's basic settings are configured automatically. This helps streamline the promotions setup process and ensure that correct settings are configured.
