Your Gift Cards Are Talking! Hear Them!
Gift cards are a huge business – In 2015, Americans bought $130 billion worth. That’s the equivalent of about $400 in gift cards for every human being in the country (adults AND children). Sales spike before the holiday season in large part driven by managers looking for a quick and easy gift solution for staff.
The problem is that gift cards aren’t, by themselves, very personal and once they get used up, they end up in the trash. Also, employees look for meaning when they interact with you... The gift card you choose may be sending a message that you don't want to send to those employees!
Here’s what your gift card may be saying to employees on your behalf:
|The Mega eCommerce Store||
"I have no idea what you like... This has pretty much everything so I guess I'm safe!"
|The Big Box Retailer||
"Everyone needs food, toilet paper, and toothpaste - it's practical!"
|The Big Book Store||
"I want you to know I respect your intelligence... or maybe I saw some books on your desk."
|Chain Bath or Candle Store||
"I want you to think your relaxation is important to me."
|Chain Coffee Store||
"I've seen you drinking coffee and wanted you to know that I'm in touch."
|Casual Dining Restaurant||
"You probably deserve a night out after all we've put you through"
|Prepaid Credit Card||
"I got you this because a $20 bill in a card seemed a little tacky."
Turn Your Gift Card Into a Real Gift!
At AttaCoin, we have an exclusive new way to turn your gift card into something really special. Check out our exclusive "Sidecar" gift card box - it holds both a gift card and our exclusive 1.75" thank you coins (included). With this item, our coin sends the employee message, not the card, and these messages are so much more meaningful. Each coin is inscribed with a "Thank You - You've Made a Difference" on one side and the other side recognizes an employee attribute like: Leadership, Teamwork, or Creativity with beautiful 5-color enamel designs.
This box has been tested to work with the following: Amazon gift card, Walmart gift card, Target gift card, Starbucks gift card, Best Buy gift card, and even a Victoria's Secret gift card (which is probably NOT an appropriate employee gift by the way). Gift cards are not included but when you pair this item with a $15 gift card, you've got a great employee gift under $30.
Turn your “blah” gift to employees into a “wow!” and show that you really care. You can deliver real employee recognition AND monetary value all year round...
