Blackhawk Network's InteliSpend Wins Big In Eighth Annual Paybefore Awards

PLEASANTON, Calif., April 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Blackhawk Network, Inc., a leading prepaid payment network, announced today that its recently acquired incentive sales business division, InteliSpend Prepaid Solutions, has won four prestigious Paybefore Awards, including two Best-in-Category recognitions in the following categories:

  • Top Motivator (5% Back) Best-in-Category
  • Prepaid with Soul (Alberta Flood Relief) Best-in-Category
  • Top Digital Dollars (B2B Virtual Discover® Prepaid Card)
  • Best Choice Retail Card (The Eileen Fisher Prepaid MasterCard ®)
Blackhawk Network's InteliSpend Wins Big in Eighth Annual Paybefore Awards

As Best-in-Category winner and the only prepaid card to give cardholders 5% back on transactions at select U.S. merchants, InteliSpend's Universal Visa ® Prepaid Card truly is a top motivator. For the Prepaid with Soul category, InteliSpend provided flood relief assistance to the Government of Alberta in Canada by offering a tangible prepaid card solution that could be issued to flood victims within 48 hours. The B2B Virtual Discover Prepaid Card is a convenient, cost-effective, instant and secure way to put funds in cardholders' hands for consumer promotion programs or corporate incentives. The Eileen Fisher Prepaid MasterCard was awarded Best Choice Retail Card and leverages InteliSpend's patented filtering technology (DirectSpend®) to create a rewarding customer incentive experience. 

Blackhawk and InteliSpend were awarded in a variety of categories by a panel of five industry experts who served as judges for this year's competition, which included a record number of entries from around the world.

"Blackhawk Network and InteliSpend are honored to have their card programs and solutions recognized as innovators in four categories in this year's Paybefore Awards," said Sheree Thornsberry, InteliSpend group vice president. "We were particularly gratified by the Top Motivator Best-in-Category recognition of our 5% back card because it's unique in the industry and offers something for everyone in the value chain, from cardholders to merchants."

For eight years, the Paybefore Awards have conferred the most prestigious recognition of excellence in the worldwide prepaid, mobile and emerging payments industry. The awards are presented annually by Paybefore, whose publications are the leading source of industry information for alternative payments executives.
