Top 10 Reasons to Use PrePaid-USA Visa® Incentive Cards
From incentive program rewards and recognition to business gifts, these cards have you covered
Running a successful business today isn’t limited to simply meeting the bottom line. It’s about developing relationships by incentivizing, recognizing, and motivating workforces and customers. In order to accomplish that, more than half (52 percent) of all U.S. businesses are using award or reward cards for incentive or recognition purposes — and spending a total of $22.7 billion annually on those cards. 1
That number demonstrates just how powerful PrePaid-USA Visa® Incentive Cards are today, and one card, in particular, is poised to help businesses succeed in their efforts to motivate and recognize their employees and customers when it comes to employee rewards, corporate incentives, customer rewards, and safety awards.
The PrePaid-USA Visa® Incentive Cards (prepaid-usa.com) is just that card. Available for use wherever Visa is accepted, this reward card works just like a gift card, giving recipients the freedom to purchase a gift that truly motivates and inspires them. Here are just a few more reasons why this card stands out above the rest when it comes to motivating recipients and, ultimately, helping businesses succeed.
- It’s Customizable
What truly sets these reward cards apart is their level of personalization. Although some businesses can opt to give a pre-designed card, they also have the option to design their own PrePaid-USA Visa® Incentive Cards. By designing their own cards by adding company logos and/or personal messages, companies can create an award card that not only relates the meaning behind the card— whether it’s to simply say thanks or to recognize someone — but a card that also relays the company’s values and branding, and ultimately, improves its return on investment. In a recent survey of incentive planners, nearly 11 percent said that prepaid cards are more customizable and personal than most other types of rewards. 2
