Starting a gift card program is a simple and smart way to increase your sales. For the last 8 years in a row, gift cards have been the most-requested gift item. Not to mention, gift cards are a great tool to attract new visitors and interact with your current clients.

How much money can you generate from gift cards? Let’s say you sell an average of 2 Gift Card special per day at an average of $50 per special. Over the course of 10 days, you would generate an additional $1,000 in gift card sales. Repeat this process during other major holidays and you would generate tens of thousands of dollars in gift card sales per year.
