I do prefer to give a gift over a gift card any day, it’s just more personal. But, let’s face it, sometimes we are so busy that we forget (been there) or truly have to buy for that person that we just don’t know what to get them (teenagers). Here are a few reasons why I do prefer to buy gift cards:
1. Family in far away places – Gift cards are fantastic if you have to give a gift to someone who lives far away. Shipping costs can add up so a gift card does not cost any extra to send! 🙂
2. Someone you don’t really know – we always have that person in the family, friend, or work gift exchange that we really don’t know that well. They might be a new boyfriend/girlfriend or you might be that new boyfriend/girlfriend.
3. Teenagers – they are just so hard to buy for – period
4. Yourself – If you are going out to eat this week, buying groceries or items at the store, than stock up on restaurant, MasterCard and/or American Express gift cards and get fuelperks!
Right now, Giant Eagle (one of my weekly favs), is offering up $.20 fuelperks for every $50 that you spend on select gift cards including ALL restaurant cards, plus MasterCard and American Express (check store for details)!
This is perfect for so many reasons but most importantly you can get a great gift and save $ on gas during your Holiday travels – Win Win!!!
This promotion is running until December 25th so you still have time! Even those last minute shoppers. 🙂
I am also co-hosting another awesome giveaway for a $100 Amazon e-gift card. The giveaway runs until 12/26, so will be perfect to get those items on your list that you did not get for Christmas! The winner will be chosen at random and notified within 48 hours. Tatu Digital Media is responsible for prize fulfillment.
