Gift Cards

December 22nd, 2009 at 02:05 pm

There have been several articles on-line about gift cards being "on the way out".

Now I know that bank gift cards can be a pain what with fees and all, but I get an incredible amount of pleasure from giving and receiving gift cards.

I have 5 nephews and nieces. They all got gift cards, the most popular being Amazon. My sister gets a gift card unless I can find something I think she needs or wants in my area that she doesn't have in her locality.

Right now I have a $30 Walmart card, and a $25 gift card for Kohls which I am waiting to use after Christmas on sales.

I love hearing what the family does with the cards.

This year I couldn't find my bosses anything, so they both got amazon cards. They seemed pretty darned pleased too.

I recently got one for a restaurant and had a wonderful time with it.

So yes, of course, take care in buying gift cards, don't get ones with expiration dates or odd little fees, but don't let it keep you from getting them for people who could use them.

And a Merry Christmas to you all too!

    I'll take an Amazon gift card anyday. I hope gift cards are not on their way out. They are still nice. Smile

    I hope they aren't on the way out either! That is what I give for most of my gifts, especially to the teenagers and college students on my list. It makes my shopping easy (although boring), and I like to think that they enjoy a little splurge. Maybe they trade or sell them to their friends for something they really want? If they do, that's ok with me too.

    I love gift cards. My daughter, so far, has $70 in gas cards from her grandma and her piano teacher. That is a lot of gas money for a college student.

    Gift cards are great, but they can lead to headaches if the fine print isn't clear. I have seem some expire, and leave the recipient with nothing - and you are also out of luck if the store goes under (unfortunately more of a possibility in this economic climate). As long as you have some insurance that the store is stable and will honor the card, and it's a place that the recipient wants to shop, then I think you are in business!
