Finding a gift card has never been easier. They’re everywhere from your local corner store and gas station to a kiosk in the mall. Getting them for your staff is simple. But who wants to pay full price? Funds around the holiday season are tighter than ever and unless you’re really, really lucky and your PTO is doing something for you, that money isn’t coming out of your budget. It’s coming out of your pocket. The cool thing about gift cards is that you can get them at a discount if you buy them online.
There are local Michigan gift card exchange sites like quickcashmi.com where you can get cards up to 32% off face value. In addition there are national exchange sites like Raise.com and cardpool.com with any number of gift cards to choose from.
As always, planning is important if you want things to run smoothly and on time. Scheduling a time to buy these gift cards now so they have time to arrive is important. Showing your staff that you care for them and that you know them by purchasing a gift card that fits them is a great way to demonstrate your appreciation for all they do.
