Sponsorships fund bonus gifts, multiplying value to local businesses

Accelerate COVID relief for local shops with a Buy-One-Get-One program. Sponsor dollars fund the bonus gifts, encouraging card buyers to purchase gifts for themselves and others. Double or triple the sponsor dollar value to the merchants. This has proven to quickly grow card sales! Unlike purchased eGifts, your bonus gifts can expire. Set an expiration date to encourage that they be spent quickly. Unspent funds are returned to you for future gifting or promotions.

Put BOGOs to work and increase your foot traffic


How Yiftee BOGOs work

Drives double the traffic in store! One gift for a friend, one for your customer purchasing the offer. In addition, this campaign helps drive gift card sales during non-holiday seasons and low periods.

Setup a BOGO campaign with these simple steps:

  1. Customize your campaign’s branding 

    Design a creative campaign using your own graphics, or one of our easy-to-use templates.

  2. Configure settings

    Define offer duration, how many gifts are available, and what gift to give.

  3. Only pay for what’s used 

    Set expiration dates (anywhere from 1 day to 1 year) for your promotional gifts. Any unspent value upon expiration returns to you.

  4. Launch!

    Your BOGO will be shown as a banner on your eGift Card page. Promote it to your customers via newsletter, in-store, etc, and watch the purchases come through in real-time.

You choose all the parameters of your campaign. Define programs that fit your business with predictable costs and return on investment.
