A Gift of Shopping and Charity in a Single Card: New Visa Prepaid Cards

Give a Rewarding Shopping Experience and a Meaningful Charitable Experience

LAKEWOOD, NJ--(Marketwire - December 10, 2010) - CharityChoice, the nonprofit pioneer and leader in charity gift cards and in charitable corporate incentive and rewards, announced that it has launched prepaid network-branded cards for the Holiday season. They are now offering both a new CharityChoice Visa card and an American Express®-branded rewards card. Available in popular denominations worth $25, $50 and others. Recipients can spend 10% towards a donation at CharityChoice and spend the remainder at their favorite stores to buy merchandise. These rewards cards will focus on corporate programs while continuing to serve the needs of small businesses and personal donors.

"Adding these network-branded prepaid cards to our 100% charity card offering enables the gifting of a tangible gift item with an added meaningful charitable dimension," stated Daniel Goodman, President of CharityChoice. "Together with our recently launched charity Facebook app, our ecards, physical gift cards, codes and online wizard for customizing your corporate redemption page; this makes our gift card website one of the most robust on the Internet."

Although there are many co-branded charity credit cards offered, the co-branded CharityChoice prepaid reward card is presently the only of its kind available. Partnering with InteliSpend Prepaid Solutions™ for the American Express®-branded reward card and 1to1 Card for Visa® to create these unique cards has opened a new horizon in charitable gifting. It is no longer a matter of choosing between merchandise or charity; you can now have both together in one gift item.
