Join The Gift Certificate Program

We’ve taken everything we learned from creating and running the industry’s largest gift card program at BedandBreakfast.com and have brought it back even better to bnbfinder! Cards will no longer be sold through Costco (or any discount channels) thereby removing the incentive for existing guests to purchase gift cards to cover their already-booked stay to save money. This program will solely be to drive NEW guests to your property that you can turn into your own repeat customers.

The Top reasons to sign up for the program:

  1. It’s the largest B&B gift certificate/gift card program throughout North America with over a thousand participating properties and growing.
  2. It doesn’t cost anything to sign-up. You only pay when you get a reservation.
  3. Has a low effective commission rate. When you redeem a certificate/card you only pay the commission on the face value of the redeemed certificate/card, not on the total reservation. The average stay at a B&B costs $350 (2 nights at $175 according to the PAII study of 2017). The average certificate/card purchase is $150. Therefore, on an average $350 reservation, paying commission on the certificate/card would equate to only just over 6% ($22.50 which is 15% of the $150 certificate/card, for a $350 reservation).
  4. Your property gets much more exposure on the bnbfinder website:
    1. Your property will get featured on the bnbfinder home page in rotation.
    2. Your property will come up in the search results when someone is searching for properties that accept bnbfinder certificates/cards.
    3. Your listing on the city pages will have the gift icon showing you participate in the program.
    4. Your detailed listing will have the gift icon showing you participate in the program.
  5. You have the chance of being featured in our social channels promoting the program.
  6. bnbfinder does all the work of designing, emailing and promoting the certificates/cards.  Innkeepers simply need to sign up and accept them.
  7. bnbfinder gift certificates are an ideal way to attract new guests to your inn or B&B. Once they’ve visited once, you know they’ll return over and over again.
