TCards are standard plastic cards, featuring an attractive
TC logo design and redeemable for six TCredits and 100 MRP (a $12 value) at
TripleClicks.com, that you can hand out to people who are not
your SFI affiliates. You can order them via
TripleClicks like any other SFI marketing product.
Gift Certificates, on the other hand, are electronic funds you deposit on account that you can then give to your personally referred TripleClicks members and SFI affiliates as incentives, rewards for achieving goals--or to help them in making a purchase (especially for affiliates where payment options and/or time is limited).
More about TCards:
Every TCard has a number associated with it. You can hand out these TCards in person or give someone a card by just e-mailing them the number on a given TCard. Existing SFI Affiliates cannot redeem TCards–they are designed for giving to your existing TripleClicks members and/or to help you attract new TripleClicks members ONLY. Be sure to tell your card recipients to go straight to the link printed on the card and enter the TCard FIRST to create a new account and have the card's six TCredits and 100 MRP credited to their account.

More about gift certificates:
As mentioned above, gift certificates are electronic funds you deposit on your SFI Gift Certificate account. You can fund your account quickly if you are using the credit card you have on file with SFI by submitting a ticket at the Support Desk. Just provide us with the last 4 digits of the card you wish to use and the amount you wish to deposit onto your gift certificate account (you can contact us at: https://www.sfimg.com/Contact/). If the card you wish to use is NOT on file, then let us know and an SFI customer service representative will contact you.
Unlike TripleClicks Gift Cards, you CAN give gift certificates to your SFI affiliates and personally referred TC members both. You can also set a redemption deadline, from just one DAY to an entire year; if your recipient doesn't redeem your gift certificate, your funds will be credited back to your account.
A gift certificate is a great tool to reward your SFI Affiliates for achieving a goal, encourage an inactive affiliate to become active again, or to entice your TC Members to make a purchase or set up a Standing Order. Additionally, you can use gift certificates to help an affiliate earn some VersaPoints. For example, some of your affiliates may reside overseas and not have a viable, TC-approved payment option available to purchase a product and gain VersaPoints. That affiliate could send you, say $10, and then you would issue that affiliate a $10 Gift Certificate.
