GIFT CARDS & VOUCHERS
All across America, every year, millions of dollar worth of gift cards remain unclaimed. As the gift becomes a more viable option in today’s day and age, it also leaves room for the possibility that the recipient just doesn't wish to use that particular service for which the gift card is for. It is with this line of thinking that we sought to treat our cards differently, and to have them as a sound investment, rather than just another option.
In knowing how many cards go unclaimed, our taxi service sought to change the game. To extend its limitations so that it never expires, regardless of age. So that it can be re-gifted, removing your "need" to use it, or flat out offering reimbursement if the card is not received as intended. When you buy a "gift" it is meant to be used, at least that's our way of thinking.
In purchasing one of our gift cards, you are investing money into our company with the intention of one day collecting the service. By having an expiry or "use-by" date, you run the risk of simply paying for nothing. This, to us, is unacceptable. We know that life happens, and sometimes a gift card sitting around would be much better used if converted back to cash, and we see it the same way.
Think of the practicality of it though. Say one day, you're in a pinch, you absolutely need a ride, but have no money. In this case, having the pre-paid cab ride ready and waiting for you can be a blessing. For individuals who are on a fixed budget, or on some form of assistance, the capability to take a taxi without worrying about the bill makes it the ideal gift.
We view our gift cards, as a gift. And we would like to see that gift become used. In honesty, we don't go through the time and effort of creating, and having these gift cards made, to sit ever forgotten in a junk drawer and inevitably (perhaps accidentally) thrown away. Our intention is that somewhere in Boise, someone can use this service, and once you multiply that by the almost million residents we have here, it becomes something that can be used on a grand scale, which is why we offer and stand by our gift card option.
We all know that every cent counts, and that's true from our customers, to our taxi service. And as such, we believe in investing in our customers. For each person that we positively interact with will inevitably make their way back to us, and allow us to continue to positively affect more customers. It is this cyclonic way of business that has helped us grow from humble roots, to Boise's top taxi service. Give the gift of a taxi service to someone who can truly use it, and we will see that your investment pays dividends, for we are just as invested in our great city.
