Know the Differences Between Turkey & Ham Gift Certificates and Turkey & Ham Gift Checks
It is important to understand there are significant differences between gift checks and gift certificates. When considering ham or turkey gift certificates, it is important to understand turkey or ham certificates have more limitations. It is essential to determine what grocery stores will accept certificate or coupon programs. Many corporate gift certificates may not be accepted by very many grocery stores making them difficult for recipients to use. Additionally, the dollar amount of the gift certificate will be restricted to the specific grocery item on the certificate, such as just the turkey or just the ham. The dollar amount that remains after it is applied to the specific food item is then kept by the certificate issuing company and never given to the recipient or refunded. Also, it is important to note that gift certificates cannot be redeemed for any grocery item. Gift checks such as Holiday Gift Checks are business checks. It is much easier for grocery stores to process a check and apply it to the recipient’s grocery purchase. Gift checks can be accepted by virtually any grocery store nation wide and the recipient will be able to spend the entire gift amount on their grocery items (applied to entire shopping cart). Finally, it may be beneficial to have the option to cash the gift. Only gift checks can be cashed. For example, Holiday Gift Checks can be cashed at an individual’s bank. If there is a preference to limit the cash option, then a restriction can be added to Holiday Gift Checks such as ‘not redeemable for cash.’ By offering traditional gift checks, employees and customers will really enjoy a flexible gift and a special meal to feel appreciated!
