This Gift Redemption Program is an independent rewards program for consumers and is not affiliated with, sponsored by or endorsed by any of the listed products or retailers. Trademarks, service marks, logos, and/or domain names (including, without limitation, the individual names of products and retailers) are the property of their respective owners.

As always, it was naught but a con meant to trick the credulous into divulging their personal information and signing up for expensive services. The Better Business Bureau provides this advice on avoiding being victimized by such scams:
If you receive a questionable or unsolicited text message, check the URL or phone number for free on the Better Business Bureau website.
Most financial institutions, utility, or other business will not communicate with you via text message. If you do not recognize the website or phone number being sent to you, don't visit or call it.
Don't e-mail or text personal and financial information.
Review your credit card and bank statements to make sure there are no unauthorized charges.
