Big Lots Expands Online Gift Card Program

Global branded payments provider Blackhawk Network said that Big Lots has launched a new digital gifting program powered by Blackhawk’s CashStar Consumer technology.

Using Blackhawk’s end-to-end suite of services, the partnership enables Big Lots to provide a seamless e-commerce experience for customers in digital channels across devices. The program supports the company’s online commerce as well as its in-store locations across the country.

Earlier this year, Big Lots formed several new partnerships to enhance and expand its suite of delivery and online ordering options, including same-day delivery, curbside pickup and grocery delivery.

“We are constantly looking for new ways to make the Big Lots shopping experience, online and in-store, more convenient for our customers,” said Amy Nelson, vp/CRM and loyalty, Big Lots. “As we continue to invest in our online shopping and delivery platforms, digital gift cards will give shoppers a new way to get their favorite products, gifts and essentials during the holiday season and beyond.”
