Visa and Mastercard Prepaid Cards are popular, desirable and powerful incentives because they can be used everywhere the network’s credit or debit cards are accepted. Plus, they are available in an array of plastic and virtual formats, so they can be delivered exactly how your recipients prefer to receive them.
Add your logo to the card to remind the cardholder that you gave them this reward. You can even add a personal touch by including the recipient’s name and a very brief message. And, if you’re looking for long-term incentive cards, consider our reloadable options.
