What Is Virtualrewards365.com?

Virtualrewards365.com is specifically designed for businesses and organizations seeking branded products, digital media, and gift cards in bulk for any business purpose other than for retail. It is absolutely not for individual purchases of any kind. 

Who is Virtualrewards365.com? 

Virtualrewards365.com is based on Universal Rewards Exchange, a system for managing highly customized points- and plateau-based rewards and recognition programs. Since these same products are available for bulk purchase for qualified programs, ET decided to launch a version for bulk business buyers. We are particularly grateful to Canon Special Markets, Bulova, Nike, and Harco, whose early support made this site possible. 

How Does the Search Work?

You have multiple options.

  1. By keyword.  Just type what you are looking for in the search box.
  2. Brand. Click on the Brand tab adjacent to the search box and add the desired brands from the drop-down box to your list. Click on the X to remove a brand if you change your mind prior to searching.
  3. Category. Click on the adjacent Category tab and add the categories to your list in the same manner. Click on the X to remove a category prior to searching.
  4. Price Range. Click on the Price Range tab and add the price ranges to your list. Click on the X to remove a brand prior to searching.
  5. Brand, category, price range at the same time: Just leave all of your search selections up until hitting Go.

Your search results will group your results by search criteria. You will find a link to a sales contact on each product profile to contact for pricing information and other details.

Coming soon: The ability to register, save your products for specific programs or clients, and print out selections for presentation.

How Do I Make a Purchase?

Virtualrewards365.com is designed for bulk purchases at wholesale too complicated to be handled by an e-commerce site, given the considerations related to shipping, discounts, business rules, credit, and other issues involved. While the products you see displayed are almost always in stock because of live inventory feeds, the system does not know if all of the vendors have enough on hand to meet your particular needs, nor do the companies know who you are to validate your ability to buy from them at wholesale.

Each product you select has a contact name for the individual at each wholesaler or manufacturer who can answer your questions and confirm that the products will be used for business purposes according to each supplier’s business rules.

If you prefer, you can use the Virtualrewards365.com Personal Shopper program. For a small, transparent fee agreed upon in advance, a Virtualrewards365.com expert will shop the system for the best possible price and service levels based on your needs without any commission or hidden rebates. 

Either way, with Virtualrewards365.com, qualified buyers get the best possible prices because they buy direct.

How Does My Company Become a Vendor?

If your company sells merchandise, gift cards or digital media for use in rewards, recognition, loyalty,  and other engagement programs,  you can have a storefront to display your products and services. There are over 65 vendors in the system,  many of them generating annual trackable sales of six figures or more.  For information, contact Jim Kilmetis at jim@universalrewardsxchange.com;  631-462-6773. 

What Are the Advantages of Using VirtualRewards365.com?

  • Selection—over 2 million products, gift cards and digital media offerings.
  • Direct access to wholesale inventory available now.
  • Ability to reach the premier suppliers who understand your needs.
  • Complete transparency—no hidden commissions or markups.

Can I Make Purchases on This Site?

No.  Virtualrewards365.com is designed for purchasers of products in bulk who are usually making transactions in the thousands of dollars or more and have multiple issues related to pricing, delivery, specifications, etc. that cannot be managed by a web site.  On every product there is Contact Vendor link that takes you to the contact information page for that vendor. Virtualrewards365.com is designed to put qualified buyers in touch with the expert companies that have the products they are seeking and who can provide the inventory, pricing and expertise available to qualified businesses. 

Who Are the Vendors?

The vendors are the leading manufacturers, wholesalers, and other brands active in the incentive, rewards, recognition, and loyalty business that provide wholesale prices, drop-shipping and customization services to businesses and not-for-profit organizations. The pricing you will see is retail, so you will have to contact the suppliers to get actual pricing. But almost all of the items on the site are available now in inventory because VirtualRewards365.com draws from the inventory feeds of over 65 vendors and growing whose products are used in ongoing programs.

Coming soon:  Premium memberships will be available to qualified company that will show approved wholesaler pricing along with the ability to save items to particular programs and print out presentation documents.

How do I Qualify to Use Virtualrewards365.com?

The suppliers you contact will require that you be a buyer of rewards, recognition, gifts or other related products for a business or not-for-profit organization, buying in bulk as part of a bona fide gift, reward, recognition, loyalty, fund-raising, or related application. When contacting vendors, you will be asked which company you represent and may be asked to provide a web address or other means of verification before completion of a purchase, as each vendor has its own rules about the type of company it will do business with through its corporate sales department.

What’s the Virtualrewards365.com Personal Shopper Program?

This service is specifically for companies that need help with a thorough search but which don’t want to pay a commission for the support. Based on your needs, the Virtualrewards365.com personal shopper, for a small, pre-agreed upon fee, will shop the system to find specifically the products you need, when you need  them, at the lowest possible price paid directly to the vendors you select. Virtualrewards365.com receives no commissions or hidden rebates. Contact jim@universalrewardsxchange.com for more information.
