The company reports that it offers a “current rewards portfolio comprised of engaging relevant award offerings in the marketplace, including brand-name merchandise, digital gift cards and more.” 
 
The company says it focuses on the “prompt and accurate fulfillment,” and access to multiple brands for in-country fulfillment, including Apple, Beats, Xiaomi, Huawei, Philips, Le Creuset, Citizen, American Tourister, Victorinox, Seiko, Fossil, Skagen, Diesel, De’Longhi, Nespresso, Nestle, Tanita, Zmi, Huami, Amiro, Zhibai, Diogixs, ViewSonic, and Amazon gift cards.

Next Level Performance, a 45-year-old provider of sales incentives, engagement and recognition programs, meetings and events, has launched the “Lunch on Us” gift card solution “for corporate clients looking to maintain engaged employees, partners and customers.”
 
According to the company, “Lunch on Us is a simple ordering platform that helps companies share electronic restaurant and food delivery gift cards with their customers and colleagues. Next Level's Lunch on Us platform hosts a curated selection of gift cards from popular restaurants and delivery companies, all of which are designed to give the recipient choice when ordering.”
 
Says Mike McWilliams, VP of Client Strategy, "We like to say this solution is simple to launch, and simple to lunch…Our clients just pick a gift card denomination, and send us the names of the team members, partners, or customers that they would like to buy lunch for. We send reward codes to the client to distribute on their own, or if they prefer, we can email the codes directly to the participants."
