The Benefit app allows you to buy gift cards for many different retailers that you already frequent. Using these gift cards to pay businesses that you already go to (e.g. Amazon, Starbucks, Target, The Home Depot, etc.) benefits Trace PTO without costing you anything extra.

When you buy using the app, retailers contribute up to 20% of your transaction back to Trace PTO!

Add a Payment Method

You can choose whether to use your bank account or credit card(s) to pay for the gift cards. Setting up a bank account to buy the cards does give Trace PTO a bigger percentage, but it’s your choice as both options benefit Trace PTO!
