The holiday season may still be two months away - though the way stores are putting up their decorations earlier and earlier each year, the holidays are just around the corner! The last quarter of the year tends to be the most profitable for merchants nationwide, but it also happens to be the busiest and the most stressful. Between tacking tinsel along the windows and equipping the bathrooms with the scent of "Autumn Leaves," Merchant Services reminds to you remove a little of your holiday stress by ordering gift cards early.
Most consumers have at least one person on their holiday gift list that has "gift card" written next to their name. When the average person spends an additional 47% over their gift card purchase, it's no wonder that most merchants don't want to pass up the potential to bring new people into their store while simultaneously increasing revenue. The potential for gift card promotions during the holiday season is a great way to bring customers back when the festivities are over. Not to mention, gift cards can be used any time of the year to issue refunds and store credit, ensuring that money is kept in the store. Any unused gift card balances also provide extra revenue to a business's pockets.
Before a merchant can start offering gift cards to their customers, however, they must first order plastic cards. Which brings us back to our main point: the holidays are just around the corner! Merchants wanting to offer gift cards need to order their gift cards early and avoid the holiday rush.
