Redeeming All Forms of Our Gift Cards
Spafinder has a new, Rebranded Flexible Card with a new and much simpler process for faster and easier redemptions.
The new card has an updated Spafinder logo and looks just like a credit card with no denomination visible. It couldn't be simpler or easier to use for you and your customers and works like this:
Customers present a new Spafinder Gift Card.
Swipe the new gift card through your POS system.
Enter the transaction amount.
Your POS automatically debits the charge from the amount on the gift card.
You receive payment within 2 business days.
If there is a balance on the card, simply return it to the customer, and she can use the remainder next time she visits.
For full details about how you can join the Flexible Card program, visit our Card Setup Page.
If your customer is still using one of our legacy, single-value cards, it works like this:
A customer comes to your business with a Spafinder Gift Card, eGift Card or Certificate which clearly states a dollar amount on its face.
You accept the gift card, eGift card or certificate—as cash—for services or products equivalent to the dollar amount (face value) and the customer is responsible for the cost above card amount.
If the full balance of the gift card/certificate is not completely used, you issue a store credit or gift certificate from your location.
Finally, redeem the gift card, eGift card or certificate, and you will receive a deposit into your business account or check for the dollar amount, less the marketing fee that is outlined in your plan.
Please allow 7-10 business days for this payment to occur.
Spafinder has updated its brand and its technology with a Flexible Gift Card that acts just like a credit card and makes redeeming a gift at your location faster and easier. For full details about how to join the program, visit our Card Setup Page.
There are online, mobile and phone redemption options for your convenience.
Complete redemption instructions and guidelines are always available on the business partner log-in portal.
After a single-use Spafinder gift card is redeemed via the Partner Portal, Spafinder will send a check for the reimbursement amount to your business.
After a multi-use Spafinder gift card is redeemed via your point-of-sale system, you will receive payment through your credit card processor. You can view the different types of gift cards we offer and how to redeem each of them here.

If you are interested in optimizing your business and online exposure, contact your dedicated account manager to explore our wide range of sales and advertising platforms. It is important to remember that most of the business you will receive from Spafinder will come from people who see your listing on our website/online directory, and they may not necessarily come in with a gift card or mention us as a source. We do not receive any commission from this type of referral—just the satisfaction of knowing we're helping your business grow!
All of our legacy, "single-use" gift cards and certificates are “single use only,” so they must be surrendered to you at point-of-sale.
These single-use gift cards are issued in a clearly stated dollar amount. You may accept our gift cards for services, accommodations or products equivalent to the dollar amount, and the customer is responsible for paying the difference in cost.
Partners accepting all of our branded cards (Spafinder, SpaWish and Wellness 365 by Spafinder) receive 100% of the amount spent beyond the face value.
If the full balance of our gift card is not completely used, issue your own store credit or gift certificate/card.
