Giving a visa gift card is the perfect solution when you don’t know what to give someone, because you can get them exactly what they want. They don’t have to return a gift if they don’t like it, or worry about how to spend a store gift card if they don’t shop there. You can use this gift card anywhere they accept visa, even online, over the phone, and through the mail.
You should keep a record of the amount on the card, you can check by calling the number on the back of your card or going online at the bank’s website that you bought the card from. Retailers are unable to look up the balance. If you try to make a purchase that is more than the gift card, it will be declined unless you know the amount remaining on the card. You have to register your gift card online and verify the information of the cardholder in order to use this card online and over the phone. You should keep a copy of the card number in case it is ever stolen so that they could restore the amount of the card.
If you purchase a bunch of these gift cards at once, you may be able to receive a discount. Some employers like to give out gift cards as rewards or incentives to their employees, or perhaps you can order a bunch for gifts to everyone for the Christmas season.
I have one reservation about this card however, because I am unable to find out from their website if there is a monthly fee against the remaining balance, so you should have caution when you purchase this gift card, and I advise you to ask the merchant about this.
You can find one at many banks in your neighborhood to get started online. At the bank they will have a full disclosure of any fees and expiration date, and you can ask a teller any other questions you might have.
