Find Your Spa With Spafinder Wellness 365 Today! Spa treatments are more popular today than ever. People are using their "spa time" to improve their appearance, reduce stress, and better their overall health. However, these spa services are expensive and hard to fit into many people's monthly budget.

Giving a gift card for a spa treatment can be an excellent gift - but it can also be a challenge if you're unsure whether that someone special would prefer a massage, facial, pedicure, or other spa treatment. You also need to be sure that spa you choose will be in close proximity to offer their spa services.

Spa Week

SPA WEEK Visit Site

Spas:

7,500

Spa Week advertises itself as a "Health and Wellness finder" and is another spa and wellness website that focuses on their gift card and reward program. The Spa Week card can be purchased on the website and may be redeemed at 7,500 locations within the United States.

The Spa Week website is a little busy at first glance. Advertising banners links to health and well-being related magazines, offers to enter contests and other such links litter the main page. Also, several times while navigating the site we experienced pop-up windows with offers from other vendors that were a bit annoying to work around. There is no easy to find list of the various services offered by the locations that accept the Spa Week card, though we could at least readily identify the link to purchase the card itself. The process of purchasing the card was quite simple however; you just navigate to the gift card page, choose your amount and check out.

After a little review of the website we noticed that there is a search bar with a search by zip code. After entering the zip code the website forced us to sign up for an account with Spa Week before we could see any results. Once we did this we were surprised to find that the website was unable to find any services at all near our major metropolitan location that accepted the Spa Week card. We entered zip codes for some other major cities and we did find results, but it concerned us from a selection standpoint that there appear to be some cites with no spas accepting the card.

Another problem we had with the Spa Week website is that all it really does is call up a list of spas that accept their card, without offering any information on what services each spa provides. Other spa finder type websites allow the users to specify whether they want a massage, facial, pedicure or some other kind of service. With Spa Week a list of spas that accept the Spa Week card is provided, but customers have to do their own research to determine which spas on the list offer the desired service.

On the plus side, the rewards program is quite good in comparison with other spa and well-being card reward programs. Card holders earn reward points for booking appointments, referring friends, joining the Spa Week Facebook page and other activities, and can redeem points for free Spa Week gift cards. The points can be redeemed at a rate of $25 for every 250 points. This would earn free gift cards at twice the rate of some other similar spa reward card services.

Overall we found Spa Week to be a mixed bag. It loses to other spa service sites we have reviewed in the technology department due to the clunky website, and in the selection department because of the smaller selection of available spas to choose from. However, the reward program is quite good, so Spa Week might be a good option for someone who is a frequent spa treatment user and cares more about earning free treatments rapidly than they do about selection and a slick website.

Way Spa

WAY SPA Visit Site

Spas:

2,000

Way Spa appears to be a spa finder and gift card website with fewer options and less going for it then the other spa and well-being service websites we have reviewed. The website is very bare bones and unimpressive.

The Way Spa main page states "2000 spas, one card" which immediately indicates that the Way Spa card is accepted by far fewer spas than the other spa cards we reviewed. There is a link to purchase the gift card with very little information on what the card will offer to those who purchase it. You can purchase a card in denominations between $25 and $500 and redeem them at any of the 2000 spas that accept it.

There is a search window to search for spas by location, and a list of major cities to do a quick search by city. We clicked on a major city and got a list of only 19 spas available. What was more perplexing is that each spa listed had a notation under it that showed which spa gift cards they accepted, and most of the selected spas did not accept the Way Spa card! Out of the 19 spas we saw on our search, only 2 accepted the Way Spa card, and the rest advertised that they accepted the cards of some of the other spa services we have reviewed. Either the Way Spa search engine is broken, or Way Spa is in the business of advertising for its competitors. We searched other cities and got similar results; a small list of spas not all of which accepted the Way Spa card.

We couldn't find mention of a points or rewards program anywhere on the website, and there were no discounts associated with the purchase of the Way Spa card. Because of this we couldn't see any advantage to purchasing the Way Spa card over simply making your own spa appointments and paying the spa directly. With a confusing website, small selection of spas and no rewards program, we cannot recommend Way Spa to anyone.

Giving a spa gift card for a spa treatment that allows the recipient to choose from thousands of spas is the perfect option.

Several companies today offer a spa gift card that may be used at many spa facilities throughout the country. However, not all spa gift cards are alike. Before shopping for a spa, you should consider the following:

  • Spa Network. How many spas will honor the gift card? Are any of them in your neighborhood?
  • Website Functionality. Does the spa service allow the gift card holder to quickly find a spa and treatment of choice?
  • Rewards Programs. If the spa visitor is a frequent customer, does a rewards program exist that will allow them to save money on future spa treatments?
