E Gift Cards Make Christmas Shopping Convenient
You’re running out of time for your Christmas shopping, feeling overwhelmed, and you just don’t think you can handle another day fighting crowds to look for that special gift for someone on your list. Why not consider an e gift card this Christmas?
It’s not impersonal to give a gift card to someone you care about. In fact, it’s considerate of you to let them choose their own gift and ensure they don’t become disappointed instead.
E gift cards are just like those plastic gift cards you see on the kiosk at grocery store checkout lines – only there’s no plastic involved. The gift card notification is emailed directly to your recipient.
They get the notification instantly, so there’s no lag time. If you’re late with a gift, this is the perfect option! And you can personalize the email greeting that notifies your gift recipient, too.
You can buy e gift cards in increments (usually of $20). Some places will tack on a processing fee, too – but it’s usually very nominal. Always look at the restrictions and make sure your recipient knows about them, too.
For instance – can the shopper use the e gift card in retail stores locally, or only online? Is there an expiration date? Discover e gift cards, for example, have a $2.50 per month service fee is the e gift card sits inactive for 12 months or more.
You can buy e gift cards like a Visa, Discover, or American Express – which can be used anywhere those cards are accepted. Or, you can buy store-specific e gift cards for online shops, including such places as:
• Barnes and Noble
• EB Games
• ITunes…and more!
An e gift card is the perfect convenience when it comes to getting our Christmas shopping a lot faster and with a lot fewer headaches, but it’s also the best way to ensure the person gets exactly what they wished for this Christmas.
