COLTS NECK, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

Holiday shoppers interested in giving the gift of fitness, now have a hassle-free option thanks to the announcement of a partnership between Retro Fitness, the nation's leading low-cost and high value fitness concept, and Yiftee. Available for purchase online, Yiftee gift cards can be sent via email, text or Twitter.

"Holiday shoppers will love the ease and convenience of giving a Yiftee gift card," said Eric Casaburi, founder and CEO of Retro Fitness. "Through this partnership, we are able to provide a great gift-giving option year round that helps more people reach their fitness goals."

Yiftee is the online gift card that can give back – any remaining value left on the card after the card's expiration date is returned to the gift's sender. Gift card recipients receive eReminders of the gift until it is redeemed or expired and the gift remains on the recipient's mobile device for easy retrieval and redemption. Retro Fitness gift cards can be found on the Retro Fitness website or by visiting Yiftee.com. The gift card can be redeemed at any Retro Fitness locations nationwide.

"When we first spoke with Retro Fitness about partnering for their holiday campaign, we knew instantly that it was a match. Retro Fitness and Yiftee both understand that today's customers are mobile and on the go," said Lori Laub, Yiftee co-founder, Business Development. "By also offering Retro Fitness eGift Cards on their website, anyone can now share their love of Retro Fitness with their friends by sending gifts instantly via email, text and even Twitter."

To celebrate the partnership, Retro Fitness is kicking off the promotion on Black Friday, November 27, by waiving the enrollment* fee (regularly $99) and offering membership discounts to the first 1,000 new members who join Retro Fitness online by clicking online ads. Anyone who joins via these special links will receive a $100 Yiftee gift card** that can be redeemed at any of Yiftee's 51,000+ local and national merchants. After enrollment, the gift card is delivered to the recipient's email and is mobile-device compatible.
