Promotions using Gift Cards

Gift cards continue to remain immensely popular with consumers. In fact, demand for digital gift cards spiked during the pandemic, as consumers sought out convenient, easy, and safe ways to share gifts with their friends and families, even if they weren't getting together in person. This trend isn't expected to end with the pandemic, as consumers continue to find convenience in their shopping experiences. Two of the interesting gift card trends to emerge are - merchants' business-to-business (B2B) gift card programs and their use of gift cards as a promotional tool to drive consumer behavior and/or action.

Following the trend, Xiaomi announced the launch of the “Ultra Gift Card.” With the purchase of this card, Mi Super-fans will get a “guaranteed access” to the limited-quantity sale of Mi 11 Ultra at just Rs. 1,999. Customers buying this gift card will also get two free screen replacements worth Rs. 4,099, an Ultra merchandise Superfan box, Times Prime annual membership worth Rs. 999, and an additional Mi 11 Ultra F-Code for sharing. Qwikcilver worked closely with the Xiaomi marketing team and launched Ultra Gift Card, an additional marketing campaign initiative that Xiaomi is implementing to coincide with their product launch to increase gift card adaptability. The brand has witnessed a rise in the organic sale of gift cards over the past two months. Gift card promotions can be beneficial for driving sales, customer loyalty, brand awareness, and engaging new markets. According to an analysis from Blackhawk Network, brands failing to run gift card promotions miss out on an average of 37 percent of annual revenue.
