Affirm and Blackhawk Network Partner to Provide Consumers With More Choice and Flexibility for Purchasing Gift Cards
Now, consumers can use Affirm to purchase digital gift cards directly on Affirm.com or in the Affirm app from their favorite brands across entertainment, dining, clothing and accessories, outdoor goods, home and more. Consumers go through a quick, real-time approval process. Once approved, consumers can select from customizable payment plans with APRs starting at 0% for eligible purchases. Consumers are shown the total cost of their purchase and will never pay more than they agree to upfront as there are no late or hidden fees with Affirm.
“At Affirm, we believe that people should not be penalized for being late, whether on their payments or shopping for any last-minute gifts,” said
“As a go-to partner for some of the largest brands in the world, we are excited to work with Affirm to provide consumers with a transparent and flexible way to pay for gift cards,” said
BHN works with approximately 37,000 partners and has approximately 400,000 channel touchpoints around the world. BHN connects with more than 300 million shoppers worldwide daily.
Affirm’s mission is to deliver honest financial products that improve lives. By building a new kind of payment network — one based on trust, transparency, and putting people first — we empower millions of consumers to spend and save responsibly, and give thousands of businesses the tools to fuel growth. Unlike most credit cards and other pay-over-time options, we show consumers exactly what they will pay up front, never increase that amount, and never charge any late or hidden fees.
