Transaction Wireless, the pioneer and global leader in providing electronic, mobile, social and traditional plastic B2C and B2B gift cards via their patented enterprise technology platform is supporting over 150 brands this Mother’s Day, to deliver a gift Mom will love on her special day.
“Mom’s work tirelessly to support their families every day. By providing those that will not be spending time with mom on her special day or for the last minute shoppers, a personalized digital gift card is the perfect solution,” says Thomas Niedbalski, Senior Vice President of Business Development, Transaction Wireless. “We’ve seen Mother’s Days sales increase over the past few years and predict it will continue to grow. This is a natural transition because the use of smart phones, tablets and other mobile devices has increased significantly with consumers. Coupled with the ability to personalize digital gifts cards, send them last minute, and know they will be received on time, is a huge benefit because no one wants to disappoint Mom on Mother’s Day.”
According the NRF’s Mother’s Day Spending Survey conducted by Prosper Insights & Analytics, consumers will spend an average of $162.94 on mom this year. Total spending is expected to reach $19.9 billion.
This universal holiday focuses on showing mom that she’s appreciated. Of those consumers shopping for a gift, 43.3 percent will buy mom a gift card, up 41.5 percent from last year; total spending is expected to reach $2.1 billion, up from $2.0 billion last year, a rise of 5%.
