Driving User Acquisition with Your Gift Card Program
Did you know that gift cards are a highly effective way to introduce new customers to your brand?
In today’s competitive digital marketplace, with spaces like streaming entertainment and food delivery getting even more crowded, new user acquisition and retention are critical to growing your business. Gift cards can introduce new customers to your brand and keep customers spending beyond their gift card value.

As brands expand globally, gift cards have become a crucial aspect of their payment and customer acquisition strategy.
However, before expanding gift cards globally, there are certain considerations that brands should keep in mind. Such as the use case of the card – does the market you’re expanding into give gift cards primarily on gifting occasions, or do gift cards act as a strategic payment vehicle? Another consideration is the tax/regulatory requirements of the market – are there restrictions on the value of the gift card or the expiry date, for example?

We wanted to give you an update on the proposed California legislation regarding plastic gift cards. California Bill 728, introduced on February 17, 2023. This bill would prohibit, beginning January 2027, a retailer from selling, offering for sale, or distributing plastic gift cards, except those that are both usable with multiple unaffiliated sellers of goods and that have the expiration date, if any, printed on the card.
