FAQs

Benefits

These gift cards are a quick and easy way to show someone you care. In addition to the card being a great gift, eligible purchases will earn reward points for future purchases.

Landmines

These gift cards are pretty straightforward for the most part. The only thing to be wary of is that the funds on the Small Business Visa Prepaid, GiftLocal Direct, and VirtualGift cards will expire. A service fee for inactivity will be taken out of the balance of certain gift cards if left unused for 12 months.

To get around these two pitfalls either get cards without expirations and service fees or make sure your giftee is well aware of the expiration date and what happens if their card is left inactive for an extended period of time.
