5 Reasons why your business should have a gift card program


The holiday season is here and that means holiday shopping has begun. Gift cards make great gifts for

family, friends, and business colleagues and they are a great revenue generator for businesses. If your

business is on the fence regarding gift cards, here are 5 reasons why you should:


1. Increase traffic to your store – Gift cards bring at least 2 people to the store for each sale; the

person purchasing the gift card and the recipient. Additionally, if a customer makes a purchase

but still has an unused balance, they are more likely to return and shop to redeem any unused

balance.

2. Boost revenue – Customers with a gift card see it as having free money so they are not as price

sensitive when they shop. 2 out of 3 people will spend more than the gift card value.

3. Increase brand awareness – When a customer loves a brand, they share the brand with their

friends and family. Gift cards are a word-of-mouth advertising opportunity, allowing your

existing customers to support your business, and spread brand awareness through the purchase

of gift cards.

4. Gift cards reduce fraudulent sales activity – Plastic gift cards versus paper certificates cannot be

duplicated. Additionally, gift cards do not contain any customer information that can be

stolen.

5. Unused gift cards are profit to your business – 10% - 19% of gift card balances are not fully

redeemed and around 6% of gift cards are never used.
