Gift cards don't have to be impersonal: GiftCards.com

Techstination feature for Tuesday, August 6, 2019

Techstination, your destination for gadgets and gear.   I’m Fred Fishkin.        It’s a dilemma all of us face when it comes to buying gifts for birthdays or holidays or other occasions.   What to buy.   Often gift cards turn out to be the solution we settle for….but they can seem pretty impersonal.   GiftCards.com is trying to change that…by allowing Visa or Mastercard gift card personalization.   Shelley Hunter holds the title of Gift Card Girlfriend…

“It is the one gift card…when you give people gift cards, they don’t generally pass them around at parties.  But if it has a picture on it, they do and people keep them even after the gift card is redeemed.  So tons of fun.”

Beyond that…the site has been growing its line up of gift cards…to include Happy Cards good at a variety of shopping or dining locations.  And for those last minute needs…GiftCards.com has instant e-gift cards as well.
