Giftcertificates.com Enters Agreement as Premier Prize Supplier for Bingo.com
Friday, December 10th, 1999, Tallahassee, FL. – Bingo.com Inc. (OTC BB:BIGR), the online center for bingo action, announced today a strategic alliance with GiftCertificates.com, a leading e-commerce provider of gift certificates, to provide Super Certificates to bingo game winners.
This agreement, upon release of the Play-4-Free games for the North American market, will provide GiftCertificates.com’s online shopping destination, featuring an unsurpassed selection of high-quality products and services, to the registered users on Bingo.com as they play and win a variety of bingo games. As part of the agreement, Bingo.com will utilize the SuperCertificate, an emailable gift currency that can be redeemed for original gift certificates to 100s of leading merchants, restaurants, spas, and hotels found on GiftCertificates.coms web site. After winning, the bingo player will receive via email a SuperCertificate. The recipient then visits the GiftCertificates.com site and has the flexibility to select his or her favorite gift certificate. GiftCertificates.com then mails (or emails) them their selection. SuperCertificates represent an innovative way to use the Internet to electronically send a gift to the places people like to shop–the leading “brick and mortar” merchants that represent the bulk of retail sales, including Barnes & Noble, Bath & Body Works, J.Crew, Macy’s, Brooks Brothers, The Sharper Image and many more.
“We are delighted to announce our new relationship with GiftCertificates.com,” said Shane Murphy, President and CEO of Bingo.com. ” This agreement allows Bingo.com users to easily and conveniently find the broadest selection of gift certificates available from brand name retail luxury goods, apparel, restaurants and travel services. Once live, our registered players will be playing for gifts they actually want. GiftCertificates.com is the premier Internet destination for people who appreciate the ease, convenience and security of online shopping, yet want to provide a very personalized, quality gift. What could be a better prize for playing bingo? Keep an eye on our site (once the Play-4-Free games for the North American market are released) for special SuperCertificates just for registering with us during December.”
