Las Vegas -- Digital gift card solution-provider Transaction Wireless said Tuesday that Applebee’s expanded its offering with the Transaction Wireless platform to provide its sports fans with personalized digital gift cards as part of its “Catch the Game” invite application on Facebook.
The app is timed to launch in concert with the March Madness NCAA basketball series. Basketball fans visit the Applebee’s Facebook page and schedule a viewing party at any Applebee's location to invite family and friends to attend.
The host and any attendees are prompted to purchase a digital gift card as part of the invite. As guests RSVP for a game-viewing event, they will be prompted to purchase a digital gift card that can be personalized with an image, text and audio message for the host, guests or anyone else.
“The personalized digital gift card component from Transaction Wireless gives everyone an added fun and unique way to share the game day spirit,” said Bridget Moen, director, gift cards, Applebee's Services.
