I’m Shelley Hunter, Gift Card Girlfriend, and I’m excited to talk to you about TheChoiceCard.

TheChoiceCard is one of many new multi-store gift cards launched by Blackhawk Network in 2020. Each multi-store gift card gives the recipient access to top stores, restaurants and entertainment options.

TheChoiceCard is redeemable for a hand-selected list of options for the more discerning recipient—for example, you can opt for a fine dining experience via McCormick & Schmick’s, get a spa treatment via spafinder, find the latest fashions at Nordstrom Rack, try new makeup or hair products at Ulta Beauty or gear up at REI.

Because you can split the value of your Choice Card across any and all of the stores on the card and then use the egift cards received however you want, the options truly are endless. Or, you might say…the choices are better than ever.

Now here’s a tip. To use TheChoiceCard you’ll need to do two things.

First, redeem the gift card at

Second, select the e-gifts you want from the participating stores.

You can redeem it all on one retailer e-gift or you can break the value up into a couple of different merchants depending on how much you have to spend. Once you make that selection, your e-gift will arrive via email and you can use it to shop in stores or online when you’re ready.

And good news — there are no fees or expiration dates associated with TheChoiceCard.
