Valentine’s Day is a popular occasion for giving Gift Cards. It’s also a great occasion for rewarding Loyalty members.

Valentine’s Day spending begins, on average, one week before the holiday so now is the time to put promotions in place. According to the National Retail Federation, consumers spend over $18 billion on Valentine’s Day with the average individual spending about $150. This presents a great opportunity for merchants to use their Gift Card and Loyalty Programs to capture these sales.

Here are some lovely Valentine’s Day Gift Card and Loyalty promotions to make your heart race:
