Team Powersports, with store locations in Garner and Smithfield, N.C., is offering a Holiday Stimulus Package to encourage gift card purchases.

The dealer has discounted its gift cards through Dec. 24: $100 gift cards cost $75, $75 gift cards cost $60, and $50 gift cards cost $40. The cards can be redeemed at Team Powersports for anything except tires, batteries or service.

This is the first year Team Powersports has offered the discounted gift cards. Sales manager Justin Alpiser says that they have been a popular seller since their introduction last month.

But Alpiser also offers a word of advice to other dealerships considering a similar program. “You have to have proper stipulations in place to make sure people don’t try to use them as cash for themselves. You must have the proper disclaimer,” he says.

Team Powersports stipulates that the cards cannot be used for same-day purchases, stressing that they are intended as gifts. Luckily, Alpiser reports, most customers have been enthusiastic about the concept: “We have a lot of people buying them as gifts for others,” he says.
