Absolutely correct - "personalization" of rewards should be permission-based only. Let the individual take the initiative to indicate whether and what they would prefer. If you take the time to ask someone if they would like to indicate their preferences, it probably boosts their engagement, even if they don't avail themselves of the service. Not asking would likely have the opposite effect.


Great points - thanks for sharing!
