CUs for Kids gift cards order doubles from last year
SAN DIMAS, Calif. (12/22/08)--Financial Service Centers Cooperative (FSCC) announced Thursday that orders for Credit Unions for Kids gift cards more than doubled from last year. Credit unions can sell the gift cards to their members or any consumer while promoting their products and services. The average dollar amount on the cards ranges from $50 to $100. A portion of the sales benefits Children’s Miracle Network, a credit union-established charity benefiting children’s hospitals. The funds are used for new facilities, equipment, research programs and patient services. Gift cards are gaining popularity with all consumers, and more than 75% of consumers buy an average of three gift cards during the holidays, FSCC said. FSCC provides the credit union Shared Branch Network with more than 5,500 deposit-taking locations in the U.S. and overseas.
