Gift card specialist Retailo is steadily extending its JOKER card family. 183 Cineplex, CineStar, Kinopolis and UCI Kinowelt cinemas accept the KINO gift card. The rechargeable JOKER MasterCard and the virtual JOKER Online MasterCard can be used for payment at 32 million MasterCard points of acceptance around the world or on the Internet. And retailers now stock JOKER top-up cards in three values.
A gift card for many cinemas
Retailo is now launching the KINO gift card countrywide as its first theme-based e-money gift card. “E-money enables us to offer provider-independent gift cards on popular themes and so to create new and attractive gift oppor-tunities,” says Retailo CEO Christian Lindner. The KINO gift card is a member of the JOKER family of gift cards and prepaid cards that are especially flexible in the ways in which they can be used. Cineplex, CineStar, Kinopolis and UCI Kinowelt cinemas throughout Germany accept KINO gift cards. Worth €25, they can be used to buy tickets, popcorn, beverages or ice cream in 183 cinemas all over Germany. The cinema issues a credit note for any remaining balance. KINO gift cards are on sale at Aral, Rewe, Lotto Niedersachsen, Lotto Berlin, Budnikowsky, Kaiser’s Tengelmann and Wasgau retail outlets.
JOKER MasterCard – The rechargeable prepaid card
Other theme-based e-money gift cards like the rechargeable JOKER MasterCard are already available from Aral, Lotto Niedersachsen, Lotto Berlin, Kaiser’s Tengelmann and Wasgau outlets. The cards are sold exclusively with an e-money credit and are accepted by around 32 million retailers all over the world. Special top-up cards for the JOKER MasterCard in several values are available wherever the JOKER MasterCard is on sale. Alternatively, users can top up their cards in other ways, such as by bank transfer, and make use of further services on the Internet.
Ideal for online shoppers: The JOKER Online MasterCard
Retailo offers a virtual version of the card, the JOKER Online MasterCard, for use on the Internet. Instead of a real card the user is sent the relevant data, such as card number, validity and datum und card check digit (CVC), by secure e-mail or text. This data can be used up to the card’s cash limit at all Internet shops that accept MasterCard, such as iTunes and amazon.de. The JOKER Online MasterCard is recharged up in the same way as the “physical” card – by top-up card or bank transfer.
Theme-based gift cards and prepaid products based on e-money
Retailo provides these cards in collaboration with Novum Bank, which man-ages the card accounts to e-money standards. “On the basis of theme-based cards we will be launching furthere exciting JOKER cards and are currently developing cards for use in areas such as fashion and restaurants,” Retailo CEO Lindner says.
