When it comes to birthday, wedding or holiday gifts for my friends, family and co-workers, I usually opt to purchase them a gift card for the special occasion. In my opinion, a gift card lets the recipient purchase whatever they want. It saves you countless hours in the store, especially if you’re on a time crunch.
So when I discovered the Gyft smartphone app, I learned I can continue purchasing gift cards via my phone and don’t even have to leave the house! You can buy, save and redeem the cards all within the app.
Gift giving: Something for them
The app allows you to purchase gift cards from SO many stores, including entertainment, clothing, restaurants and sports shops. The choices are endless. Check out the list of participating stores here.
Gyft CEO Vinny Lingham is all about mobilizing the industry of plastic cards, and describes the app as a mobile gift card mall, according to a TeleCrunch article.
Gift receiving: Organizing your gift cards
Raise your hand if you’ve ever stopped by a store only to discover you forgot to bring the gift card?
With the app, shoppers no longer need to carry around and keep up with a bunch of cards (right, newlyweds?). This app has saved me a lot of time when it comes to shopping, and there’s more space in my wallet. New Gyft users will get $5 off on their first order of $15 or more!
This may be the most clever benefit of all! What do ya think?
