Bonusly vs Fond

Bonusly

The Bottom Line

A peer-to-peer recognition platform in a beautiful, sleek package that's easy to use, but lacks configuration and customization options.

Fond

The Bottom Line

Plenty of rewards, discounts, customizations, and integrations might make it too much for some.

How It Works

Bonusly

Users get a monthly allowance of points to award to other users. Allowance points are refreshed every month and do not roll over. Earned points can be redeemed for gift cards or charitable donations.

Fond

Fund your account upfront with points, which are distributed to users to give away every month or quarter. Recognition can be peer-to-peer or top-down and monetary or non-monetary. Earned points can be used to purchase gift cards or physical products.
