A Gift Card Story

thanksgivingAt Tango Card, we know all about the emotional value that is attached to receiving a gift card. Whether it’s a $5 to Starbucks or a $50 to Amazon, 10 out of 10 times the gift card recipient will have a smile on their face when they receive their reward. There’s a reason why gift cards have been the #1 wished for gift 9 years in a row!

When we heard this story from one of our customers, we had to share it! This company uses rewards powered by Tango Card for sales incentives and spotlight awards. Check out how rewards made an impact on this persons life.

“Last year during the holidays we had a sales contest that involved gift cards. For us, contests are running daily, but this particular one was for a large amount and the winner won a Whole Foods card and was so grateful for it. A month later he told us that the money he won on the Whole Foods card was able to buy his family their entire Thanksgiving meal and he otherwise wasn’t sure how he and his wife were going to host because she had recently lost her job. We gave him the card within 24 hours of him winning and it was an amazing experience.

The Tango Card experience sometimes takes what would be a normal, boring and taken for granted sales contest and customizes it to the individual. [In this case], the rapid delivery and multiple [reward] options literally made this holiday come true for this family and it was way better than us sending his team on an outing or proving him with company logo’d swag. Thanks Tango, you helped us save the day!”
