ATLANTA, June 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- InComm, a leading prepaid product and transaction services company, is proud to announce it has received two Best in Category awards at the 2017 Pay Awards. Winners were decided by a combination of votes from expert judging panels and online voting.
InComm's two Best-in-Category winners and their respective categories are:
- Nike Gift Card + Earbuds Pack – Best Design
- Gift of College – Startup of the Year
"We are both proud and humbled that these two products were chosen to be honored by members of our industry," said Phil Graves, President, InComm. "When we design products like these, we only have the consumer and our partners in mind. Recognition is never the goal. But to see the overwhelming support by the industry for innovative products like these lets us know we are on the right track."
The Nike Gift Card + Earbuds pack featured a $50 Nike gift card that was attached to a set of exclusive Nike-branded sport earbuds that came free with the purchase of the gift card. This design helped retailers break through a cluttered display and capture the consumers' attention while reinforcing Nike's active brand image.
InComm partnered with Gift of College to create and distribute the Gift of College gift card, which can be used to contribute to any 529 college savings plan or payment toward an existing student loan account. This new and innovative gift card product enables friends and family to quickly and conveniently contribute to a child's college fund through physical or digital gift cards that are redeemable at GiftofCollege.com. The Gift of College card was also a finalist for Product of the Year.
Two other InComm products were named finalists in their respective categories – FanCard Faceoff for Best Marketing Campaign and Currys PC World Trade-In Program for Best International Program.
