Valuence Japan Launches Reuse Service in Collaboration with Sumitomo Mitsui Trust Club, Operator of Diners Club!
Linking the Value of Goods and Creating Sustainable LifestylesDiners Club has been a pioneer in new services, both for Japan and the rest of the world, helping customers enjoy an era of 100-year life expectancies. In December 2020, Diners Club celebrated the 60th anniversary of issuing Japan’s first credit card, revamping the card with new functionality suitable for today’s new normal era.
As for Valuence Japan, it conducts purchase of luxury brand goods with a main target of customers in their 40s and above. It too is working to build services usable from home amid the COVID-19 pandemic, like in-home purchasing and by-mail purchasing.
In the belief that these services have a high affinity with Diners Club, the two companies have partnered to launch a reuse service for Diners Club members. The two parties will use this service to offer sustainable lifestyles connecting members to the next person needing their items, rather than being thrown away.
Free Reward Points Based on Purchase PriceThis new reuse service exclusive to Diners Club members offers two new services – in-home purchasing and by-mail purchasing – usable with peace of mind and no hassle. Members may choose which they prefer at their convenience. Plus, they will receive 1,000 Diners Club Reward Points if completing purchases of ¥50,000 or more during the eligibility period. All Diners Club members are invited to take advantage of this special, eco-friendly reuse service opportunity.

■ Select From Two Purchasing Services for Maximum Convenience
・By-Mail Purchasing（https://nanboya.com/takuhai-kaitori/ Japanese only）A convenient purchase method that allows you to go from appraisal to purchase completion from the comfort of your own home. Packing materials are delivered free of charge, offering an easy process for those without their own cardboard or other packaging. After receiving the merchandise, Nanboya informs the customer of the appraisal results as early as the next day; if the customer agrees, then the purchase is complete. And, of course, no fees are charged for appraisals, purchases, or cancellations.
・In-Home Purchasing （https://nanboya.com/syuttyou-kaitori/ Japanese only）Nanboya offers concierge services even for those who might not be able to bring their merchandise to a Nanboya store, like when selling a large amount of clothes or bags. Valuence Japan’s concierge will visit the customer’s home or office and conduct an appraisal and purchase. If the customer agrees to the appraisal price, Nanboya will process transfer to the customer’s designated bank account as early as the next business day.
