Many businesses are celebrating store openings with promotional gift card giveaways to consumers. Both national chains and local businesses – including Macy’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Stein Mart and a Memphis, Tennessee salon – are using custom cards to attract customers on opening days.
The first 500 customers to walk in the doors at a new Macy’s in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, received a $10 gift card for the store and were entered for a chance to win one of two $500 cards.
Consumers were also lured with promotional offers during the three-day grand opening of a Dick’s Sporting Goods store in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The company promised gift cards for the first 100 people in line with varying denominations between $5 and $500.
High-end salon and spa Kingdom Kreations recently opened in Memphis, Tennessee, celebrating with a promotional gift card offer, according to the Memphis Commercial Appeal. To generate capital right away, the salon was offering customers $1,000 gift cards for half price, the source reports.
To make gift card giveaways even more convenient, businesses can also sell products and services online. With a virtual credit card terminal, clients will be able to redeem values online if they are unable to make it to the store’s location.Back To Blog
