Pleasanton, California, November 25, 2019: Happy Cards®, a line of bundled-brand gift cards that pull consumers’ favorite brands together across top-selling categories onto a themed gift card (e.g., Happy® Dining, Happy® Teen, Happy® Beauty, etc.), announced today its newest suite of gift card options available online and at retailers nationwide. Each Happy Card allows for a more personal and giftable experience by including up to seven retailers, restaurants and entertainment options on one themed card that recipients can redeem at any or all the brands featured on the card.
According to global branded payments provider, Blackhawk Network’s 2019 BrandedPay Holiday Shopping Preview report, surveyed shoppers’ holiday gift card spend is expected to increase 7% from 2018, with shoppers spending 35% of their total holiday gifting budget on gift cards. This is consistent with holiday wish lists, as gift cards are enjoying a more than decade-long reign as the most requested holiday gift in the annual survey by National Retail Federation.
A wonderful gift of choice for the holiday season, Happy Cards are a win for both gift givers and receivers. There are no fees – no matter where the cards are purchased. All the new Happy Cards – Happy® Holidays, Happy® Moments and Happy® You – are available now at Gift Card Mall™ displays in retailers nationwide or online at GiftCards.com. The cards include a combination of up to seven top brands, including AMC Theatres, App Store & iTunes, Buffalo Wild Wings, The Cheesecake Factory, Chili’s Grill & Bar, GameStop, Lowe’s, Macy’s, Outback Steakhouse, P.F. Chang’s and Regal. Some Happy Cards can even be used for online redemption; visit HappyCards.com for details.
“With a variety of retailers, restaurants and entertainment options to choose from, giving a Happy Card is like giving multiple gifts in one,” said Shelley Hunter, Gift Card Girlfriend at GiftCards.com and gifting expert. “We know that people love to receive gift cards during the holidays, so why not gift those that allow recipients to choose their own shopping, dining or entertainment adventure? Whether it’s a Happy You or holidays-specific e-gift, or the Happy Holidays and Happy Moments cards that lead to fun shopping experiences, there’s a Happy Card for everyone on your shopping list.”
Talbott Roche, CEO and president of Blackhawk Network, the company that created Happy Cards added, “For those looking to give a unique gift that results in a great experience for the recipient, Happy Cards are the perfect choice. We’re excited to have new Happy Cards available for the season and to partner with top brands in adding even more Happy to the holidays.” Blackhawk Network delivers branded payment programs and has executed in over 100 countries worldwide.
