FT. WALTON BEACH, FL--(Marketwire - Jun 18, 2012) - Global eTelecom, Inc. (GETI), a premier electronic check, ACH, and Gift/Loyalty card processor, announced today they are partnering with BluePay, a leading merchant payment processing provider, to supply guest concession gift cards and volunteer meal cards for the Travelers Championship Golf Tournament. This PGA Tour event will take place June 21-24, 2012, at TPC River Highlands in Cromwell, Conn.
Each tournament ticket purchased includes a gift card pre-loaded with a ten dollar balance. The cards are redeemable at multiple onsite vendors. Tournament volunteer workers will receive a card that is pre-loaded with a ten dollar balance for each day they work.
"These cards can be redeemed at onsite concession vendors, and have historically been a great success with the vendors, guests, and volunteers," said Dragos Gheorghe, gift and loyalty manager at GETI. "Guests perceive the cards as an added value to purchasing a ticket, and volunteer workers appreciate them as a reward for their service. Vendors are particularly satisfied with the pre-loaded gift cards due to the increased revenue created by consumer spending in addition to the pre-loaded balance."
This is the third year BluePay and GETI have partnered to supply the tournament with pre-loaded incentive gift cards. In addition to gift cards, the two companies also offer services for events such as ID badges, promotional cards, and customized hotel key cards.
