How do gift and loyalty software systems work?

Gift cards, loyalty cards, and key tags contain account numbers encoded on their magnetic stripe or barcode. Your point-of-sale (POS), loyalty, or membership system automatically reads the account number when swiped or scanned. This number provides access to the card's transaction history and and other account actions — including checking an account's balance, add value, and redeem value.
