Frequently asked questions
How long does it take for a physical gift card to arrive?
Deliveries can range from 2-10 business days from the time of purchase, depending on the shipping method chosen.
How do I activate a personalized gift card?
On GiftCards.com select “Activate” and enter the 16-digit number on the front of the card and 3-digit CVN on the back of the card, or call customer service.
Is a GiftCards.com gift card considered a credit card?
No, a gift card is considered a prepaid card. The purchases made with one will be run as credit, but it is not a credit card.
Is there a minimum or maximum value for a Visa eGift card?
Yes, you can load as little as $10 or as much as $250 on your initial purchase.
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.
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.
