National Gift Card Punch-out Catalog Disablement
The National Gift Card agency (NGC) was acquired by a company named Blackhawk Network (BHN). Procurement is in communication with BHN to establish a new contract, but unfortunately, negotiations are still ongoing. BHN will no longer be supporting the NGC punch-out catalog and the punch-out will no longer be available in CruzBuy after Thursday, February 15. We are continuing to work closely with BHN and hope to establish a new agreement and punch-out catalog soon. Any order placed before or by February 15 will be fulfilled.

Other Ways to Buy Business Related Gift Cards: Out of Pocket Reimbursement and/or Procard

  • Gift cards may be purchased out-of-pocket and then submitted for reimbursement on the Direct Payment form.
  • Due to the situation, Procard usage for gift card purchases will be allowed. Please keep the following in mind:
    • All policies/conditions around gift purchases will still apply to Procard usage including but not limited to spending limits, itemized receipts, and frequency limits.
    • All required documentation should be added during the Procard reconciliation process.
    • Procard purchases for gift cards may not work for all companies. Any issues with processing can be sent to

For more information on gift purchases including what is allowable and spending limits please review the Non-Employee Non-Cash Gifts Guide and Non-Cash Employee Award and Other Gifts Guide. Policy related questions and clarification can also be sent to
