When companies implement a Rewards Program, they strive to create a win-win situation. Designing a strategic corporate rewards initiative serves many business interests like gaining a competitive edge and increasing market share. Customers win by gaining an item of value, often for free. And employees win by feeling appreciated and revered. In both cases, customers and employees develop a sense of loyalty and preference. The key element in program development is baking in an effective, affordable, scalable approach. When you fulfill your Rewards Program with gift cards, you’re checking all the boxes without breaking a sweat.

5 Reasons to Fulfill Your Rewards Program with Gift Cards

1: Instant Rewards, Hundreds of Top Brands

Digital gift cards deliver instantly, by text or email. Psychologically speaking, the greatest result of instant gratification is that positive feelings are quick to form. Gift cards satisfy that primal need of acquiring a result immediately. When people get something “now”, they tend to have a high regard for the giver. And, that’s the entire point: To impact the recipient in a way that moves them. This kind of positive regard translates into brand loyalty and purchase preference. (Note: eGifter Rewards offers digital delivery by text, email. Physical gift cards can be delivered by USPS or FedEx.)

Choose from a catalog offering hundreds of the best retail brands including Amazon.com, Apple, Walmart, Starbucks, Target, Visa eRewards and American Express.

Making it easy for your teams to purchase reward cards through an intuitive user interface helps them do their job hassle free.

Companies that work to influence behaviors through gamification (i.e. points and badges) are on easy street. When the eGifter Rewards platform is integrated into the stack, costly development time is eliminated.
