I would love to send out more $5.00 gift certificates. What I would love even more is a way to put that on my personal website so my visitors can simply put their email address in and hit "submit", and viola, they get a $5.00 gift certificate that qualifies me for points, and earns them a bit of tea on the house. It also will likely earn adagio a few more customers in the process!
The idea is for a little box type widget I can just stick on my website, and or you could simply make an API through which I attach my member ID or some such, and it goes along with the certificate, so that when that certificate # is used, it's registered to my user account. I'm sure the system you currently have in place would take minimal if any re-working to add this feature. You'd merely need to expose a way to allow a remote site to send you an email address, an existing member ID ( or some other unique 'key' ). It's very likely that the framework that your current form uses inside your account page would be nearly perfect.
Anyway, this is just an idea I had. I plan to add a few tea reviews to my website, and it would be great if I could include a "Try this tea with $5.00 from Adagio, and Me!" widget for visitors to use.
