Use Up Your Gift Cards!

Did you know that there is a $1 billion in unredeemed gift cards just waiting to be spent, but much of it probably won’t be? How can you make sure you get the most our of your gift card?

  • It’s very common to have unused balance left on the gift card. In order to use 100% of your card, make sure you keep the receipt showing the remaining balance, mark it with a highlighter and keep it together with your card in a visible place.
  • Check your expiration date and make sure that you use all of your balance before the card expires.
  • Some gift cards will have transaction fees or other fees associated with them. Make sure you know how the fees are being charged so you make the most of your gift.
