Gift cards are a $25 billion dollar industry in the United States. It goes without saying that some times those cards are for stores that the recipient may not regularly shop in. The new Swap-A-Gift program being introduced this month is for the FFC customer who stuffs those cards in a drawer or loses them in a wallet or purse. It’s a quick and easy way for customers to walk in with gift cards they will never use and walk out with cash in their hands. The process is easy. The customer presents their card(s) to the teller. The teller swipes the card through the easy-swipe machine to verify the amount on the card. The teller then informs the customer of the dollar value in-kind and if the customer agrees, the transaction is completed. The program is available to all current franchisees. It will be one of the core programs for all future franchises.
