What is a Gift Card?
A Gift Card (also called a stored value card) is “loaded” with a specific dollar amount and is used as cash for future purchases. Since cards are generally given to others as a gift, gift cards increase the businesses customer base. Businesses may decide to set pre-determined dollar amounts or allow consumers to select the amount of their choice. The plastic card may display a customized design with a business’ logo or be a standard (pre-manufactured) design. The dollar amount is loaded, stored in the database, and activated by swiping the magnetic stripe card through a POS terminal. Gift cards have replaced labor intensive paper gift certificates in many businesses.
What is a Loyalty Card?
Like Gift Cards, Loyalty Cards are plastic cards with a magnetic strip that stores the consumer and card information. Instead of storing only a dollar amount, loyalty cards store criteria that help merchants to track customer information and reward their loyal customers. Most loyalty programs use a point system to track data like number of visits, purchase amounts and special dates or customer referrals. Accumulated points are then redeemed for free items, discounts, dollar off coupons or special offers.
