Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Reward?

Our branded Rewards offer a personalized experience with customized Reward messaging and are available in multiple denominations and delivery options.  The Reward is redeemable for the recipient’s choice of popular shopping, dining, and entertainment gift cards, a prepaid card, and for smart home and lifestyle products. This allows your recipients the opportunity to choose the options that matter most to them.

What is the cost of a Reward?

You pay face value for your rewards. If you order a $25 Reward as a happy birthday gift for an employee, you pay $25. No portion of your recipients’ Rewards will be used up in hidden fees or shipping when they redeem.

Who can order Rewards?

Reward Builder is designed to be a self-serve ordering portal for Administrators of company reward and incentive programs. As such, our Rewards can only be ordered for use in a reward or incentive program and can only be redeemed by the Reward recipient.  As part of your rewards program, you are able to add additional users to your Reward Builder account to assist you in administering your program.

How do I create an account?

To create an account, select ‘Login’ in the upper right and then click the ‘Create Account’ button. Please allow up to two business days for account approval. You will be notified by email once approval is complete. While you can start building Rewards and add them to your cart, you will not be able to complete your purchase until the approval process is complete.   

Can I purchase a Reward without creating an account?

You must create an account to purchase Rewards. As a security measure, we verify to ensure each customer is a good fit for Reward Builder. Additionally, having an account gives you access to the full suite of functionalities designed to help you administer your rewards program.

What are the differences between the Reward Builder plans?

We offer three different plans to meet the needs of our customers: Reward Builder Standard provides a cost-effective way for companies of any size to create, customize, and issue Rewards to their employees and customers with the ability to add additional users and Admins to your company account. Reward Builder Plus allows you to enjoy all the Standard plan features as well as create user groups and hierarchies, manage budgets, allocate funds, send printed/mailed Rewards, and much more. Our Enterprise Plan allows large volume programs and enterprise companies with specific requirements to customize an incentive solution to fit their needs. Please contact us to discuss. Both our Reward Builder Standard and Reward Builder Plus plans require no minimum volumes or IT integration, so they are the ideal solution for your recognition and engagement program, or to complement an existing program in place.

What is the cost for each plan?

Reward Builder Standard:  No cost.  You only pay for the face value of the Rewards issued.

Reward Builder Plus: $49 a month plus the cost of the Reward issued when billed monthly.  You may also opt for our annual billing option at $499 for a savings of $88 per year!

Enterprise: Because Enterprise customers have unique needs, the cost is determined based on specific client and program requirements.

Can I change plans?

You are welcome to change your Reward Builder Standard or Reward Builder Plus plan at any time to meet your needs. For Plus plans, cancellation will take effect at the end of your current billing cycle (month or year). Should you cancel your Plus plan, you will still have access to your Plus features through the end of the billing cycle (month or year). Your account will then revert to the Standard plan, at no cost, and you can continue to order Rewards anytime. 

What if I forget my username or password?

No problem! You can visit this page to reset your password. Your username should be the email you used at the time you created your account. If you need further assistance, the Reward Builder Support Team is here to help. Send an email to or give us a call at 1-855-525-7665.

What happens if I don’t upload a logo to my account?

You are not required to upload a logo to your account to purchase Rewards. With each order you place you will have the option to upload a logo, but it is not a requirement. Your Rewards can be unbranded if you choose.

What if I want to use a different logo than my Account Logo?

Each time you create a Reward, you will be directed to a page that allows you to choose the logo you’d like on your Reward. On this page, you can choose your current account logo, upload a new high quality .png, .jpg, or .gif file, or opt to leave your Rewards unbranded. Please note that only one logo may be stored in your account at a time.

What size does my logo need to be?

Please ensure your logo is a high quality .png, .jpg, or .gif file that is at least 650px x 160px and 300dpi. If it is not a high quality image, there may be problems with pixilation or fuzziness on your final Rewards. Please be aware that poor quality logos often look clear on a computer monitor, but fuzzy in print, so it’s important to verify that your logo is the correct quality even if it appears clear on your screen.

What type of file does my logo need to be?

Your logo should be a high quality .png, .jpg or .gif file. Other files will not be recognized by our system.

What if I accidentally enter an invalid email address for my employee?

If a Reward bounces after you complete your order, you will be notified in your account by a banner in the upper right-hand corner of your account screen. This notification will remain there until the email addresses are updated. If the Reward does not bounce, but you need to correct or update the email associated with a Reward, please send an email to the Reward Builder Support Team at or call 1-855-525-7665 for assistance.

How will my Rewards be delivered?

During the ordering process, you will be given the option to choose between emailed or SMS (text) Rewards.

For Reward Builder Plus subscribers, you will have the option of having the Rewards printed and mailed directly to each recipient or to you for distribution. Printed Rewards will be delivered within 10-14 business days of payment.

What if I want to order my Rewards ahead of time and have them delivered at a custom date?

During the ordering process, at the delivery option step, you can select a custom day for your Reward order to be delivered. If no specific date is selected, Rewards will be delivered ASAP (As Soon As Processed). For Reward Builder Plus subscribers, you have the option to select a delivery date for the entire order or by recipient. Note: If your Rewards are going to be printed and mailed by us, they will be printed and shipped on the day you have selected. This will affect the actual delivery date of your Rewards and they will arrive 10-14 business days after the custom date selected.

Is there a limit to the Rewards I can buy at one time?

There is no limit to the number of Rewards you can purchase. You may enter each recipient’s name and email manually or upload a CSV Data File with all the pertinent information for your recipients. The Reward value may be customized for each recipient if your program includes multiple Reward values.

Do I have to enter each name in manually?

How do I create a CSV file?

Rewards are set to process immediately. However, during the ordering process you can select a future date to send your Rewards. Please note that Rewards will not process until payment has been received.

How long does it take for my order to be delivered to me or my recipients?
