Why should I utilize tangible merchandise awards instead of cash or gift cards?
Employees respond more positively to and are more motivated by tangible corporate gifts than cash or gift cards that are generally regarded as less personal and memorable. Tangible recognition awards also keep the dollar amount hidden from the recipient, providing a higher perceived value. Unlike gift cards, tangible corporate gifts do not expire and are replaceable if lost or misplaced.

Are there any minimum award ordering requirements?
Whether you are planning an incentive or employee recognition program, online or paper-based, we have no minimum requirements. Our award programs allow administrators to award recipients monthly, weekly or even daily instead of placing all orders at once in order to meet order requirements.
Does Awards Network have any award program setup, administration or other fees?
Awards Network does not charge any setup or administrative fees including software, maintenance, support, hosting or transaction fees for recognition awards or incentive programs, online or paper based with the exception of the Online Point Bank Incentive Program. A onetime setup fee will apply to this award program.
Can award program materials and websites be company branded?
Awards Network can completely customize your presentation materials and websites using your company's logo, layout, images and wording. Our customized software allows us to brand our recognition award and incentive program websites. We can mirror an existing website or create a new theme for the award program website and will work to keep your company's branding consistent throughout your rewards program.
Does Awards Network charge for shipping and handling of awards?
All shipping, handling and freight charges to anywhere in the contiguous United States are included in each award collection's cost. For gifts shipping outside the contiguous United States, freight, tax and duty will be invoiced separately from the merchandise and based off UPS Ground international prices.
