Gift Certificates that Keep on Giving Published on The New Rules Project (http://www.newrules.org)http://www.newrules.org In 2007, U.S. shoppers spent $97 billion on gift certificates, an increase of nearly 17 percent from the previous year. For retailers, gift certificates have distinct advantages. They’re far more popular than the amount on the certificate. When redeeming them, recipients spend an average of 1.4 times the amount on the certificate. Plus, about 10 percent of the total value of the gift certificate goes unused every year, netting retailers billions of dollars.
Gift Certificates make sense for small Business USA Today Money Strategies/Rhonda Abrams For years, I’ve encouraged small companies, including service businesses, to sell gift certificates. Of course, customers have been able to get gift certificates for beauty salons or spas, but how about for dentists (for teeth whitening), interior designers, personal trainers, dog groomers? Two recent studies (by the National Retail Federation and by the accounting firm Deloitte an Touche) show the explosive size of the gift certificate market: 74.3% of consumers will buy a gift certificate this holiday season 81% of consumers received a gift certificate last year 50.2% would like to receive a gift certificate 12% of shoppers bought gift certificates for their own use 11.5% of the average consumers holiday budget will be spent on gift certificates Customers buy more. 21% of gift certificates users spent more than the face value of the certificate. The average face value of a gift certificate in 2003 was $47.20; those who spent more averaged a whopping $90. January sales. Many of those who receive gift certificates redeem them in January, often a slow month for many companies. January is now one of the biggest sales months of the year, due in large part to gift certificates
Medical Gift Certificates Bring Well Wishes (CBS News) On The Early Show Jack Gillis of the Consumer Federation of America called Medical Gift Certificates “a very intimate, (targeted) gift, because this is the type of gift you’d have to know someone pretty well to give. “One of the things the companies can capitalize on is the fact healthcare cost have gone through the roof.” “More and more of us are in the sandwich generation. We would love to be able to somehow help out our parents with some of their health care expenses, or our kids who are more and more not being covered by health insurance.” “So the fact is, we will be spending a lot of money on these certificates and give them to people that we care about a lot.” Gillis noted that Medical Gift Certificates make a good gift from 40-to-50 year-olds faced with the task of helping their parents without having to be too intrusive and without a handout. “This is a gift” he says. “It will enable the recipient to be proud.”
