Shelley Hunter, also known as, “Gift Card Girlfriend, is the founder of www.GiftCardGirlfriend.com. She initially created the website to share her signature style of turning any gift card into a thoughtful gift. Along the way, she realized that consumers wanted more help than that—they want insight on ways to avoid gift card pitfalls such as fraud, fees, and the nagging feeling that a gift card will be construed as a thoughtless gift. Using her signature approach, “6 Steps to Better Gift Card Giving”, consumers can enjoy the benefits of gift cards without the worry. A former IT professional in financial services, Shelley loves to give (and receive!) gift cards.
