Prepaid and Gift Cards in the U.S., 4th Edition

Gift and prepaid cards are popular as payment tools for American consumers and as gifts for their family and friends. In Prepaid and Gift Cards in the U.S., Packaged Facts forecasts that general-purpose prepaid card purchase values will grow 17% in 2014. Packaged Facts expects closed-loop prepaid card transaction value to grow at 3.6% as the prepaid and gift cards industry faces retail distribution saturation and stagnating consumer usage.

Competitors in the prepaid and gift cards industry are taking steps to ensure their products remain popular with consumers.
