Bear Hugs Discontinued
Published on January 08, 2018
Dear Bear Hugs Customer,
Your team at UCSF Arts & Events wishes to thank you for being a customer of the Bear Hugs gift certificate program. Sadly, the cost of running the program has become prohibitive and the final day of Bear Hugs sales is Monday, March 19, 2018.
Bear Hugs has long been the recognition program of choice for many of us at UCSF. As an alternative, we recommend FastPay gift cards which can be used at participating UCSF vendors.
FastPay gift cards are available for purchase through UCSF Nutrition & Food Services in increments of $20 for use at any UCSF vendor who accepts FastPay. For more info on FastPay and other gift cards, please visit: http://bit.ly/FastPayGiftCards (Scroll to the bottom of the webpage for an order form).
Customers who have purchased Bear Hugs for others, or that have Bear Hugs in their possession, can still redeem them at participating vendors after March 19.
However, if you redeem your Bear Hug certificate now through June 30, 2018, you can be entered for your chance to win a $20 FastPay Gift Card. Simply write your E-mail on the back of your Bear Hugs before you redeem at a participating campus vendor.
With Bear Hugs ending, we recommend the following websites to recognize your staff and colleagues:
Recognize.ucsf.edu (you must be logged into myaccess).
