Useful Ideas For A 500 Gift Card

Mar 2, 2008
The best present you can give someone is one they really want. But how? The answer is simple. Let them go shopping and purchase the item or items that they really desire. It's easy to do when you give them a $500 gift card! This makes getting what they want so easy and best of all, most gift cards can be used both on and off the internet.

Looking for a gift card for a graduate, or perhaps a "help gift"? A $50 or a $500 one, or any amount in between, can go a long way towards books for school, living expenses or a piece of equipment such as a camera or DVD player. Other present ideas include wedding gifts, new baby gifts or a special present for your spouse on a birthday or anniversary.

With many cards, such as a Visa gift card, many retailers and other sellers will sometimes charge a dormancy fee, meaning that the balance from it is lost if the amount purchased on it isn't used within a certain period of time. Read the fine print before you make a large balance for it, such as a $500 gift card, and make sure to let the recipient know that it has a set period of time in which it must be used.

At the end of the year, many corporations thank their largest customers for their continued business by giving lavish gifts such as Callaway golf club sets, memberships to exclusive spas and elaborate baskets including pricey wines and cheeses. Other ideas for corporate presents is to give your best customers a $500 gift card and let your client shop and choose the item or items they want.

Sales is the core of almost every business. If you don't market your product and services, then you won't be in business for very long. Therefore, keeping your sales representatives motivated to continually increase their sales and to follow up with existing clients, can be one of the biggest challenges you face.

Make your sales representatives rise to the challenge by dangling a $500 gift card and award it to the rep that not only has the most new business a month but also the highest amount of client retention. Most people look at getting one for their own use as basically a cash bonus and it's a wonderful incentive to keep your people striving to do better.

And there you have it, a $500 gift card isn't just a thoughtful present for your spouse, newlyweds or new parents. It's also a great way to keep your employees motivated.

Additionally, you can use one to give your most loyal of customers a big "Thank you" for their continued business. Gift cards are a great way to show someone that they are important to you.
