plastic gift cards can be reloadable

Everyone forgets one important thing about plastic gift cards

Plastic gift cards can be reloadable!

We want to banish the idea that plastic gift cards are single-use, disposable products.

We stock reloadable gift cards that offer real long-term value. Reloading takes a one-off gift and turns it into a reward mechanism that works for years.

Reload your own gift card

Reloading plastic gift cards is the crux of our Everyday Benefits (EDB) service.

Staff reload their own gift cards at a discount, and make huge savings. Even a casual EDB user will save hundreds of pounds a year.

Beyond discounting gift card top-ups for staff, the card comes with other benefits. That includes:

  • Cinema tickets
  • Theme park tickets
  • Holidays
  • Other gift cards
  • Supermarket card top-ups

Reload someone else’s gift card

Reloadable plastic gift cards offer you more than a one-time reward. They give you the chance to think long-term about staff rewards and customer loyalty.

Staff achievements

Topping up Everyday Benefits cards makes rewarding employees easy. You don’t need to order new rewards every time you thank staff for their achievements.

Top up their reloadable gift cards. Then thank them face-to-face, or through your company’s recognition systems, like you would anyway.

This makes it very simple for situations like:

  • Large-scale team achievements
  • Issuing different values of reward across a whole organisation
  • Rewarding staff across multiple sites
  • Needing to reward mobile or remote staff

It also works for rewarding a single employee, too. It doesn’t matter if you’re rewarding long service, reaching milestones, or anything else.

It’s simple and effective when you use a reloadable plastic gift card.

Customer gratitude

Our Member Benefits card is the customer-facing version of the Everyday Benefits card. Rewarding your customers for their positive behaviour has two benefits:

  • Boosting loyalty through rewards
  • Building more positive behaviour in the future

Reward for pure longevity, buying promoted products, referrals, and more. Anything that makes sense for your business and your customers.

The customer doesn’t even need their card on them – you only need to keep their card number in your database to top it up.

You can then email or call them to say thank you after the top-up. Or say it face-to-face when they’re on the premises.

Talk to us

By the way, if any of this sounds like a good idea for your business, get in touch. We’re experts on this, and we always want to talk about it.

We’d love to guide you through setting up a customer or staff reward scheme.

Drop the idea that a plastic gift card is a one-dimensional product

Goodbye, old friend: we are discontinuing the £1 Love2shop Gift Voucher

After more than twenty years, Love2shop is saying goodbye to the £1 denomination of the Love2shop Gift Voucher.

We know it’s the right thing to do, and we know we’re doing this for the right reasons, but it’s still a little bit bittersweet.

Our £1 voucher has been a part of the history of not just Love2shop Business Services, but our sister companies Highstreetvouchers.com and Park Christmas Savings too.

Over the years the £1 voucher has been there for hundreds of thousands of birthdays, Christmas dinners, presents, incentives, rewards and more.

The times, they are a-changing

But, it’s time for us to make this change. There just isn’t the same demand for a £1 voucher these days, and as of August 15th 2019, the voucher will disappear.

Our Business Development team, Love2shop Self-Serve, and Highstreetvouchers.com will stop selling the voucher to the public.

Don’t panic if you have a clutch of £1 vouchers that haven’t been redeemed yet.

Any vouchers still in circulation will honoured until their expiry date, that’s still business as usual.

We’ll also keep stocking the £5 and £10 vouchers, so any clients with a paper preference will be catered for.

Seizing an opportunity

Change isn’t a bad thing though. It’s an opportunity.

Love2shop, and Park Group itself, have always been proud of our ability to adapt and develop over time.

While the £1 voucher is sailing off into the sunset, we’re strengthening what we offer in other areas.

For instance, over the last year our gift card has seen an enormous surge in of interest.

Many more of our clients making the full-time switch to plastic.

In turn, we’ve strengthened the gift card by opening our library of e-gift cards.

E-gift cards are a further selection of brands a cardholder can access through Love2shop.co.uk or our app.

You can read more about how great our e-gift card options are here.

The Love2shop app

Speaking of our app, the Love2shop App itself is a huge development.

It brings the Love2shop Gift Card experience back in line with what modern consumers expect from their digital experience.

Card registration, finding places to spend, trading for e-gift cards, managing cards and more is now a seamless mobile on experience on Apple and Android.

Talk to us

If you have any concerns about how the disappearance of the £1 voucher might affect your business’ rewards or incentives, just get in touch.

Our team are available 09:00 -17:00 on weekdays, and they’re always happy to help our clients.

You can call, email, or use the web chat function on this site.

love2shop vouchers help pregnant smokers stub it out

Love2shop News: Love2shop Vouchers help expecting mothers stub it out

Love2shop Gift Vouchers have helped NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde (NHSGGC) convince more expecting mothers to quit smoking.

According to NHSGGC, introducing Love2shop Vouchers as an incentive drove a 38% increase in mothers successfully stubbing out their cigarettes.

The scheme, called Quit Your Way, asks expecting mothers to set a date to pack in their cigarettes.

Pregnant women who successfully kick their habit in time enjoy £160 worth of Love2shop Gift Vouchers as a reward.

The result is significant, as there is a strong link between smoking while pregnant and hospitalisation of children.

Eliminating pregnant smoking across the UK would improve the health of thousands of very young children, and potentially save lives. Not to mention, quitting improves the health of the mothers in question.

Dr Emilia Crighton, NHSGGC consultant, said: “We were seeing that many pregnant women were struggling to quit smoking and we felt a fresh approach was needed…the incentive gives them a reward for successfully stopping smoking and staying stopped.

“The feedback we have received is that many of the women we support really appreciate receiving the incentives and the difference they can make. This allows them to buy important things for their baby and for their family.”

NHSGGC are not the only organisation using our rewards as incentives.

The University of Sheffield, NHS Yorkshire and Humber, and NHS Greater Manchester have all used Love2shop Gift Cards or Vouchers to incentivise pregnant smokers to quit smoking.

Martin Cooper, Head of Client Development at Love2shop Business, said: “It’s a very satisfying outcome. We always take pride in our rewards, and how they enrich our clients’ business, but these stories really stand out. Knowing we’re helping the NHS fulfil a scheme that’s improving the health of mothers and babies is especially delightful.”

The Love2shop Gift Voucher, offered through the Quit Your Way scheme, is the UK’s most popular multi-retailer voucher. Love2shop Vouchers are accepted at more than 150 retailers across the UK, including shops like Boots, Semichem, Mothercare and the Early Learning Centre.
