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:

Abercrombie & Fitch
Aeropostale
Amazon.com
Applebee’s
Bahama Breeze
Banana Republic
Bed Bath & Beyond
Best Buy
Chili’s
CVS
Dunkin’ Donuts
Eddie V’s
Fandango
Gander Mountain
Gap
Hibbett Sports
Home Depot
IHOP
iTunes
J.Crew
JCPenney

Sears
Seasons 52
Sephora
Sports Authority
Staples
Starbucks
TGI Friday’s
The Capital Grille
The Cheesecake Factory
Ulta
Urban Outfitters
Victoria’s Secret
Williams-Sonoma
Yard House

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.
