Blackhawk Network’s heritage of innovative prepaid developments began in 2001 when it was a subsidiary of Safeway Inc. From the outset, we’ve looked at the industry with fresh eyes, always seeking to solve customer needs while working to grow our partners’ business.
Our first consumer insight led to a pioneering breakthrough — to provide gift cards where they were more convenient for consumers, including grocery stores where people visited frequently. Over the years, we have continued to research what consumers want — prepaid open-loop cards in third-party locations, egift capabilities for online and mobile channels, prepaid wireless plans and handsets in one location, online card management services and more — and rapidly brought these innovations to market. In addition to expanding our product line to capitalize on the full spectrum of prepaid products, we’ve also greatly expanded the brands we offer and the locations where we offer them — both in-store and digitally.
