What are Gift & Loyalty Cards?
Gift cards and loyalty cards function the same way; the only difference is that a gift card is loaded and redeemed with a cash value while a loyalty card is loaded and redeemed with loyalty “points”. The cards are plastic and are electronically loaded and redeemed with a stored value at the point of sale. A gift card [also known as a “stored-value card”] is best described as a pre-paid debit card. Gift cards replace paper gift certificates, in-store merchandise credits, coupons, and cash substitutes.
How does the gift card program work?
A customer enters the merchant’s business and requests to purchase a gift card. The merchant collects the funds and takes a card from inventory; activating it for the dollar amount desired by swiping the card through the POS. The card is now active and ready to be redeemed at any participating store location(s).
If I lose my card, can it be replaced?
Card replacement is at the sole discretion of the merchant.
