Visitors to the popular Bottle of Sauce in Cheltenham are being offered the chance to earn up to a 15 per cent discount from their bill, as part of a new mobile phone amnesty scheme launching on Tuesday 4 September 2018.
Customers will be invited to lock away their phones inside an ‘amnesty pouch’ and be without their phones for one, two or three hours, with each hour earning them an additional five percent discount from their final bill.
It’s hoped that the phone amnesty will encourage customers to take time away from their technology and engage more with their friends.
The idea was the brainchild of Leo Johnson, one of the founder members of Dodo Pub Co, which runs the Bottle of Sauce: ‘We definitely don’t hate social media, we just think quality time away from it with friends is a good thing.
‘This social experiment of sorts is aimed at getting our customers to clock just how much they’re online and start talking about it. The longer they last without their phone, the bigger the discount.’
The phone amnesty initiative will be in place throughout September, and will become a permanent fixture if it’s successful.
