If I were a spa…

In a few recent blog posts on instant, self service prepaid accounts and how they are used in the various industries (E.g If I were a retailer & If I were a hotel) we highlighted how easy it is to create prepaid accounts – the beauty & health industries are not too far off.

The use of Tutuka’s new self-service function on its website for private label prepaid cards is growing across industries, and its ability to place the power to create prepaid accounts at the click of a button is increasing in demand.

Just hit the ‘Instant Prepaid Accounts’ tab. Sign-up takes less than three minutes, hundreds of card numbers can be created in seconds and there are no middle-men.

If I were a spa

What would you do with these cards?

Let’s imagine I’m a health & beauty spa. I would first use instant private label gift cards to issue complimentary treatment’s, as well as to sell them so that individuals or corporates can get them as gifts.


  • No more confusion on whether the voucher has expired, or if it has already been used
  • Easier administration of vouchers that are sold or even given away as a freebee
  • Moving forward onto a paperless system


  • My first step is to create card numbers on the Tutuka website
  • I could print these numbers onto anything from paper vouchers to plastic cards or scented leaf-shaped cards(to add to the relaxation theme)
  • Once existing clientele have finished with their treatment, you may issue them with a voucher for other treatments that are not so common, promoting the use of the service as well as offering them an opportunity to come back
  • A gift card can be sold, to customers who wish to give a treatment as a gift
  • The card is scanned or swiped for the payment of these treatments

Rewards, gifts, incentives
There are several other uses for prepaid cards within a hotel environment.

1-    Hotel gift cards

  • For corporate entities as prizes for customers
  • For corporate entities as incentives for employees
  • For the general public as gifts
  • For my management to give to loyal guests

2-    Rewards cards

  • Reward loyal guests for continued business
  • Swipe anytime they use a hotel in my chain
  • Swipes help them build up points or monetary value
  • Exchange points for a spa gift card, a discount on their next visit or perhaps a free night’s stay

3-    Incentive cards

  • For my employees
  • Source of motivation
  • Employee of the month will receive a free meal at our 5 star restaurant or a treatment at our spa
  • Both could be presented to them in the form of a pre-loaded gift card

4-    Staff lunch cards

  •  I previously hand-wrote physical slips for each staff member for the daily staff lunch
  •  Now I can issue them with meal vouchers
  •  Vouchers are redeemed using the website’s control panel

As easy as:

1- Go to Tutuka’s website

website3 (640x438)

2- Set your login details

signup (800x363)

(NB: yes, you will be derided for weak passwords)

3- Done


You can now create, load and redeem closed loop* prepaid card accounts at your leisure.



Swift and simple, the prepaid process is both easy and beneficial with Tutuka.

*closed loop cards are those issued by a specific merchant and can only be redeemed at that same merchant.
