Put your holidays on autopilot by ordering egift cards in advance from over 40 merchants that let you schedule delivery.
Benefits of Scheduling
Electronic gift cards make fantastic last-minute gifts because they can be delivered almost instantly. Sometimes, however, you want to order the gift in advance but hold delivery until a more appropriate moment–like Christmas Eve, Christmas morning, a birthday, an anniversary or some other special date on the calendar. While you could get up early that day and just hit send, scheduling egift card delivery is easier and it reduces the possibility of forgetting to ship a gift altogether. (Plus, you can avoid some of the more common egift card pitfalls if you’re not in a hurry.)
Stores That Schedule Delivery
At GiftCards.com, you can schedule delivery of an egift card. If you want to order directly from the store, then there are choices there as well. When I reviewed egift cards from top stores and restaurants, I specifically looked to see which merchants allow scheduled delivery because I think this feature is more than a convenience–it can be a lifesaver during one of the busiest times of the year. So put your egift cards on autopilot with the following merchants:

At almost 50 stores to choose from, there are plenty of ways to schedule delivery of an egift card so its arrival will be timed perfectly. Just think how efficient you could be this holiday season! Early in the month, spend a few minutes ordering and scheduling egift card deliveries from the merchants above. Then sit back and spend the rest of the season relaxing, knowing your gifts are loaded into Santa’s Cyber-sleigh and will shortly be on their way.
