The prepaid card and payments company Blackhawk Network is the new third-party gift card distributor for Hyatt Hotels and Resorts.
Blackhawk offers Hyatt cards worth $15 through $500 available in approximately 5,000 stores across the country, as well as on Amazon.com and giftcardmall.com, the companies say in a Dec. 23 press release. The cards can be used at Hyatt hotels, restaurants, and spas.
Blackhawk is headquartered in Pleasanton, Calif. It recently purchased the Dallas-based customer engagement firm Parago and the Dallas-based business-to-business prepaid incentive and rewards provider CardLab. Parago will improve Blackhawk's incentive business, and CardLab was made part of Blackhawk's IntelliSpend subsidiary (purchased in 2013).
