SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Honeyfund, the #1 honeymoon wedding registry site, today unveiled the first-ever universal travel and experience gift card. Just in time for the holidays, Honeyfund Gift Card recipients can redeem the card for unlimited travel experiences from top partners including Hotels.com, Royal Caribbean International, Groupon, QVC, Uber, and many more.
After a successful Shark Tank appearance in 2014 where the company partnered with 'Mr. Wonderful,' Kevin O'Leary, Honeyfund has continued to grow in popularity – it's now the #1 wedding registry app and most-used universal wedding registry site on the market. The site has doubled in giving volume since Shark Tank, with nearly $425 million in gifts since the company was founded back in 2006.
"With the Honeyfund Gift Card, anyone can buy the gift of a truly customizable experience for anyone else," explains Sara Margulis, Honeyfund chief executive officer and co-founder. "From a once-in-a-lifetime experience, like scuba diving in Bali, to a simple spa day or wine-tasting trip, the memories of this gift will last a lifetime."
New research from Airbnb shows that millennials would rather spend their money traveling over buying a home or paying off debt. Uber's gift card launched recently to target wandering millennials. Indeed, Honeyfund has grown largely due to this trend, where wedding couples and guests alike continue to value experiences more than things. The Honeyfund Gift Card was conceived to allow hundreds of millions of wedding guests to give a honeymoon gift even if the couple isn't registered on Honeyfund. It turns out to be a great gift for any occasion.
Mr. O'Leary agrees, "Honeyfund has pioneered experience giving for weddings, offering people exactly what they want: a flexible, out-of-the box gift. The Honeyfund Gift Cards leverages more than 10 years experience in honeymoons to offer the perfect gift for the millennial generation – travel and experiences. Honeyfund has been a great investment with tremendous growth in the past two years. The gift card is a natural extension of that growth."
