Create Gift Card Promotions

In Zenoti, you can offer bonus gift cards as a promotion, by adding and setting up rules for bonus cards in Gift Card Promotions page at the organization level.
You can configure the bonus gift card offers depending on the number of gift cards or the value of the gift card purchased by the guest. 

For example, you can configure offers using one of the following ways:  

  • Your business is running an offer where the guest can buy three gift cards worth $30 each and get a bonus gift card worth $10 free. If your guest purchases three gift cards of total worth $90, the guest is eligible to receive a $10 bonus gift card. 

  • Your business is running an offer where the guest can buy a gift card worth $90 or more and get a gift card worth $15 free. If your guest purchases a gift card of $100, the guest is eligible to receive a $15 bonus gift card. 

Note: The bonus gift card offers are available for purchases made online and in-store.
