Kobie Launches Online Mall with Discounted Gift Cards to Top Brand Retailers
St. Petersburg, FL (January 11, 2010) – Kobie Marketing, a leading loyalty marketing and technology agency, today announced the launch of its Gift Card Gallery (SM). Kobie’s new product features an innovative online mall that offers discounted gift cards to top brand retailers. The mall serves as a stand-alone rewards solution or as an additional benefit to an existing program. Verizon, one of Kobie’s clients, was the first to launch the Gift Card Gallery (SM) to nine million of its online customers this week.
In an increasingly competitive and tough economic climate, Kobie developed the Gift Card Gallery (SM) to further differentiate its clients’ rewards programs by providing exceptional value to their customers. The Gift Card Gallery (SM) features over 40 top brand merchants, including Macy’s, Chili’s, Kohl’s, Outback Steakhouse, Sears, Lands’ End, Staples, Home Shopping Network and many more. Program members enjoy significant discounts off the cash value of gift cards.
However, the true beauty of the Gift Card Gallery (SM) is the convenient and seamless shopping experience program members enjoy. Kobie integrates the Gift Card Gallery (SM) portal into its clients’ existing sites. To receive their discounts, members simply visit the site, select their gift cards, and use their debit or credit card to pay. It is that easy.
The Gift Card Gallery (SM) is easy to integrate with any existing platform and requires limited resources, as Kobie handles all gift card fulfillment and customer care services. It can also function as a stand-alone solution for non-reward program members and a mobile option coupled with SMS text messaging provides customers with a convenient way to participate.
Said Nancy Berg, Kobie’s Vice President of Client Services and Partnerships, “We’re thrilled that our vision to create an interesting new benefit that offers true value to our clients’ customers has come to life. And, we couldn’t have asked for a better client to launch with. Verizon has a strong understanding of the importance of building loyalty and we’re honored to have been selected to launch their new customer rewards solution.”
The Gift Card Gallery (SM) was launched in time for the holiday shopping season as a way to provide customers with extra value.
