Gift Certificates have long been a gift of choice for many different occasions. They make gift giving easy, while allowing the recipient some freedom to choose a gift they will enjoy, at the retailer chosen. Though gift certificates remain a great gift choice for some, they are slowly becoming a gift of the past, as new prepaid and gift card technology take their place. GiftCards.com gift cards work nearly identically to paper gift certificates, but have a number of significant advantages over them:
GiftCards.com gift cards are easier to use: Paper gift certificates can be difficult to use because normally, the certificate holds a certain dollar value, and typically needs to be used, in full, on a single transaction. This can be inconvenient for the certificate holder if they wish to purchase something that is less than the amount of the certificate. With a gift card from GiftCards.com, the balance of the card can be used in increments of the recipient's choosing. Balances are also easy to keep track of, because the card holder can call or login to GiftCards.com to retrieve this information at any time.
GiftCards.com gift cards are easier to manage: Because gift cards are credit card sized, and can be easily managed, they're much easier to keep track of. Most gift certificates are simply printed on paper and can easily be damaged or destroyed.
GiftCards.com gift cards are easier to replace if lost/stolen: In most cases, if a gift certificate is lost or stolen, it cannot be replaced. This means that the recipient of the gift may lose the funds that were given to them. A Visa® or MasterCard® gift card from GiftCards.com can be replaced or reissued to the recipient if that card happens to get lost or stolen.
If you're looking to give a gift certificate, consider a gift card from GiftCards.com, instead. All the benefits, with none of the hassle!
