Giving the Gift of Convenience this Holiday Season
Rhonda Castagna meets with Holliday Haynes, Vice President, Global Prepaid Strategy & Planning at Master Card for a great suggestion for those friends and family members that are difficult to give the right gift: personalized gift cards; definitely more secure than cash, and can be sent through the mail, and unlike store cards, they can be used anywhere Debit MasterCard's are accepted. Not only does it become a flexible gift for those that receive them, the Prepaid MasterCard® Gift Card has a personalized option of having a meaningful photo on the card and the corresponding greeting card. Once the account is finished, you have the card with the picture as a reminder of the loved one who wanted you to get what you wanted!
For the Love of Gift Cards
Finding the perfect gift for all the special people in your life can be quite a challenge and you may secretly wish you could give some people money instead.
That would certainly cut your shopping list in half, but cold hard cash seems so impersonal, doesn’t it? Not anymore! With MasterCard personalized gift cards you can give a meaningful gift without the stress.
MasterCard personalized gift cards are not just for the holidays, you can give this great gift for any money-giving occasion like birthdays, graduations, weddings, or anniversaries. The process is easy and convenient and you can customize your personalized gift card from the comfort of your own home by:
• Going to www.giftcards.com/mastercard
• Select Create-A-Card
• Upload your own photo or choose from the website gallery
• Zoom in, zoom out, or crop your photo to fit the desired position on the card
• Add value to your card (you can add any amount between $25 to $500)
• Add a personalized greeting card that you can customize as well
• Include a personalized message
• Include address that you would like your gift card to be sent to
MasterCard gift cards are considered the same as cash value which allows you to use the card until you have reached the full card amount. You can use your gift card almost anywhere too; all you have to do is register it online.
Benefits of registering your card online include:
• Ability to shop online or over the phone
• Accessibility to your balance
• Ability to track to your spending
• Zero Liability Policy. If the card is lost or stolen you won’t be held accountable and will still have access to all your money
For the holiday season MasterCard is even offering free shipping on your gift card order!
