December 01, 2009 // Franchising.com // Vancouver, BC – Gift cards have become a very popular non-monetary gift option appreciated by men and women alike. Blenz The Canadian Coffee Company has launched BlenzGiftCard.com to provide customers and businesses a simple way to shop online, to give the gift of delight - not to mention convenience. "We are excited to offer our customers a new way to give their friends and business associates the gift of a visit to their favourite coffee shop," says George Moen, president of Blenz. "Gift cards offer a quick, no hassle way to perk up anyone's day with a delicious beverage and light snack."
BlenzGiftCards.com was launched to provide an online portal to five different options for Blenz customers to send gift cards – offering Blenz branded gift cards, Blenz holiday-themed gift cards, personalized photo gift cards, and customizable co-branded gift cards for businesses; also available through the portal are SPC Cards, a discount card exclusively for students.
The Blenz gift card is a convenient way to give the gift of the Blenz experience. During the Christmas season, Blenz gift cards and gift card holders are available with a festive holiday motif. And, Blenz gift cards are reloadable in person at any Blenz store or by phone – and phone reloads get a 10% discount.
For businesses and organizations, Blenz offers customized co-branded cards printed in bulk for use as a promotional device. Preloaded and reloadable co-branded gift cards are ideal for use as gifts for staff recognition or customer appreciation, and co-branded card partners are featured on the Blenz Media Network seen in Blenz stores, and profiled on the BlenzGiftCards.com website and in Blenz Coffee's bimonthly newsletter, "The Extra Shot".
Photo Gift Cards are personalized, prepaid and reloadable Blenz gift cards which have been decorated with the customer's own photo and text, easily uploaded through the BlenzGiftCards.com interface.
