The “extra” loyalty program for automotive workshops has developed rapidly since its introduction by Bosch in 2009. As of this year, also workshops in the U.S. and Canada can participate in the program. Thus, “extra” now has participants in 27 countries in Europe and 50 countries worldwide. Globally, 100 000 workshops have registered for the loyalty program.

In Germany, “extra” has in the meantime become the largest loyalty program in the workshop area. With Bosch and eight other strong partners, workshops can collect points rapidly: Motul (motor oils and lubricants), GKN (brands Spidan and Löbro), BTS Turbo (original turbochargers and factory replacement chargers), Sonax (car care products) and Hazet (tools). As of this year, Michelin (tires), Castrol (engine and gear oils as well as specialties), as well as Bilstein (shock absorbers and air suspension modules) have joined.

Easy registration via the Internet

Registration for “extra” is quick and easy: The workshop registers on the loyalty program’s website, selects up to three wholesalers and can start collecting points immediately. The collected points can be redeemed for attractive rewards. The extensive catalog includes non-cash awards such as Bosch tools, home appliances, smart phones or tablet PCs. Moreover, the “extra” points can also be used to pay for Bosch Diagnostics or the participation in Bosch Trainings.

“extra” motorsports campaign

Bosch has launched an attractive motorsports campaign in Germany. Workshops can register for the campaign until 31.01.2018 and will then be rewarded for their purchases during the period 01.01.2018 to 30.04.2018. The 500 workshops that surpass their turnover target the most, receive a Garmin fitness band as an additional reward. All other workshops that achieve their turnover target goal, receive 500 extra points. Furthermore, every workshop that registers for the promotion automatically participates in the raffle of a VIP ticket for a DTM race. Please find further details at
