Get rewarded for buying the gift that’s as good as cash

When you’re looking to get a gift for any occasion, GiftCards.com has customizable options that reward you for your purchase. Gift cards include a pre-made video of your choosing and a small personal message, and for an additional $1 you can add your own picture to the card.

The person you are gifting will also receive the benefits of being able to check their balance and look at their transaction history at anytime, online. For cards with a PIN, changing it is as easy as visiting the GiftCards.com website and entering in the card information.

Yes, you can load as little as $10 or as much as $250 on your initial purchase.

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.
